Organic Golf Course Management in Utah

Utah State University has identified Utah to be a perfect model to explore the use of organic management strategies on golf courses because of its diverse climates and landscapes that reflect those throughout the Intermountain Western US. As a means to increase awareness to golf course managers and superintendents about unnecessary pesticide use and provide alternative management tactics for golf courses in these landscapes, the USU Extension and the Center for Resource Management present the online training module "Organic Golf Course Management in Utah".

The creation of these training videos (powerpoints turned into videos) was to help superintendents make the transition to an organic management program. The USU presentations were funded by an EPA Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program grant and include the following sections:

1. Introduction
2. Variety Selection
3. Irrigation Management
4. Soils
5. Insects
6. Diseases
7. Weeds
8. Conclusion - Sustainable Management
