This October San Francisco city’s publicly owned golf
course, Harding Park, will host the world’s biggest
gold tournament, the World Golf Championship hosted
by the Professional Golfers Association.
Environmentalists believe that the sport is very
destructive to local water supplies because of the
vast amount of water and pesticides needed to
maintain the courses. Chris Geiger, the man in charg
of integrated pest management for the city of San
Francisco, will explain what the city is doing while
Shawnee Hoover of Beyond Pesticides in Washington DC
will talk about the problems as well as how to create
alternative organic golf courses.
