What do environmentalists and golf course owners have in common? Well aside from their affinity for the color green, it appears they both also like to find ways to make golfing more environmentally-friendly. According to the group PERC, environmentalists and putting-green experts are creating techniques to maintain well-manicured golf courses that can operate using little watering. Some of the techniques they’re employing include planting species of grass that require less water, sharpening lawn mower blades to keep the grass healthy, and spraying recycled, instead of municipal, water. With the use of wireless underground sensors to also monitor moisture levels, it seems this new eco-coalition is on par to drive home an eagle.
