I will have to admit your greens look almost as good as the traditional greens of Europe.

Woody, the greens look great! One of the local 18 hole golf courses here is heavily into organic care of their course. The University of New Hampshire as well as the owner of North Country Organics are also involved with the ongoing care\ experiment. The name of his book is Ecological Golf Course Management by Paul Sachs. I played there quite a few times and was pretty impressed by the results. Have to say though that there were so many worm castings on the ground, it made for rough putting that day! Could not tell the difference at all from any other surrounding golf courses at all in terms of appearance.

Mike

Hey Ric,

Do you need a license, or consultations with your CPO if you are not using dangerous chemicals? When were you in Europe? during one of the WWs? Which one the first one?

Mike that's good info about the book.

How about starting a new thread on great book resources for those wanting to go organic????

Just for contrast and to show what woodycrest is up against in the winter, I'll ask him to post a picture of the course from last winter. Call me a southerner, but I'm just impressed he gets grass at all
