BMP Planning Guide and Template
GCSAA’s BMP Planning Guide and Template is an online resource that provides for the development of golf course best management practices (BMP) programs at the state level. The need for state-level BMP programs and, ultimately, golf facility-written BMP plans for nutrient, drought, and water management and integrated pest management (IPM) is greater than ever. Golf courses, many of which are located in urban environments under the watchful eye of concerned citizens, face heightened scrutiny from the public, media and environmental activist special-interest groups regarding the use of inputs (that is, water, pesticides, etc.) and commonly held misconceptions about golf course management. It is critical that the golf industry demonstrate sustainable methods of land management. GCSAA’s BMP Planning Guide and Template makes it easy for you to follow the key steps in developing a golf course management state BMP program.
