Golf Course Resources

The Department of Environmental Engineering encourages golf course operators to use fertilizers, pesticides and other chemicals in a manner that limits the pollution that can be caused by such products. Stormwater runoff carries these pollutants to storm drains and waterways which can lead to public health risks and habitat damage.  The resources found on the links below can help golf course operators manage their facilities in an environmentally sensitive manner. 

The Virginia Department of Conservation’s website has extensive resources about nutrient management including criteria for certified nutrient management plans and a list of certified planners. 

The Virginia Golf Course Superintendents Association has developed a Best Management Practices Guide for Virginia golf course operators. Clink on the link below to download your own copy.  

The U.S. Golf Course Association has adopted principles for environmentally friendly maintenance practices.  

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is a system that uses operational, biological and chemical controls for sustainable pest control. 

The Golf Course Superintendent Association of America has developed guidance for developing an IPM plan for golf courses.
