Hawai’i Golf Course Maintenance BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES

The Hawai’i Golf Course Superintendents Association (HGCSA) has released a handbook of Hawai’i Golf Maintenance Best Management Practices (BMPs).

The handbook promotes environmental stewardship, golf course playability, and overall health of the Hawai’i golf and tourism industries.

The BMPs provide guidance for Hawai’i golf course maintenance professionals covering twelve key areas including archaeological awareness, wildlife protection, surface water management and water quality monitoring, nutrient use, integrated pest management, energy, and others.

“We’re proud to release the handbook, the HGCSA encourages its 125 members to perform at the highest standards with ongoing care and respect for the environment,” said Nanea Golf Club superintendent, HGCSA president, and BMP steering committee co-chair Scott Main. “It’s important for collaboration within our communities.”

The HGCSA is the first state chapter to integrate the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) throughout its handbook. The SDGs, or Global Goals, are a universal call-to-action to end poverty, protect the planet, and promote peace and prosperity.
