Best Management Practices

Environmental Best Management Practices for Virginia’s Golf Courses summarizes best management practices (BMPs) and provides details in accompanying recommendations specifically adapted for golf courses in Virginia using the results of current research, the experience of golf course superintendents in implementing BMPs, golf industry representatives, and State regulators with an emphasis on the protection of water quality. VGCSA developed the document in cooperation with representatives of Virginia Tech, Virginia governmental agencies, allied associations of the Virginia Golf Council, and private sector partners.

Golf course superintendents, current and prospective golf course owners, golfers and other stakeholders, and regulators will find the information contained within this document to be useful in understanding the use of BMPs for the protection of environmental quality.
