Below is the recording of our Best Management Practices Workshop presented by GCSAA on March 10, 2022.
Best Management Practices (BMPs) are tools commonly used by superintendents to provide quality playing surfaces and improve the economic and environmental health of their golf facilities. The adoption of BMP plans at the facility level helps in the advocacy efforts on behalf of golf with national, state, and local lawmakers, as well as the media. BMPs demonstrate our commitment to professional land management using science-based BMPs including the responsible use of inputs.
