Abstract/Contents:"Water is our worlds most vital resource and is crucial for all ecological and societal enterprises, however, not all water consumption purposes are accepted so freely. The expenditure of water for golf management is a necessary requirement to maintain these intensively managed surfaces at a premier standard. The act of depleting water resources for a recreational activity perturbs the publics perception of golf courses when no tangible output is produced such as agricultural food commodities. However, approximately 16,000 golf courses in the United States contribute 33 billion dollars in gross economic impact, making them the largest component of the turfgrass industry. Their large socioeconomic impact, garners recognition for water regulations to reduce their water consumption footprint. Best management practices such as establishing drought tolerant turfgrass cultivars, updating obsolete irrigation systems, and the use of innovate, wireless soil moisture sensors have helped shift the trend of how golf courses are managed and reduce the amount of water they consume. However, implementing advanced technologies such as wireless soil sensors in an erroneous manner can be more detrimental by providing an individual with inaccurate data, leading to management decisions with severe ramifications. No method to our knowledge exists to objectively determine the quantity and geolocations of where to install soil sensors on golf courses. The objective of our research is to use remotely sensed data to determine the quantity and locations of soil sensors required too accurately provide a representative, continuous sample of a location to make future irrigation decisions."
