Abstract/Contents:Describes the conflict between golf developers and environmentalists, stating that "...with proper foresight and management - incorporating current applicable regulations - golf courses can be affordable, accessible, and environmentally sound preserves of open space, as well as highly profitable ventures." Compares the former ways of constructing and maintaining golf courses with the current trends in course construction. Describes an attempt to voluntarily preserve the natural qualities of the environment through the efforts of the American Society of Golf Course Architects and environmental groups such as Audubon International. Also profiles various golf courses that were once landfills. Also profiles Talega of San Clemente in southern Orange County, California because of its open spaces and water recycling.
