This electronic version has been made available under a Creative Commons (BY-NC) open access license. Golf is a major global industry. The sport is played by more than 60 million people worldwide and there are more than 32,000 courses in 140 countries across the globe. This book looks at the power relationships in and around golf, examining whether the industry has demonstrated sufficient leadership on environmental matters to be trusted to make weighty decisions with implications for public and environmental health. The first comprehensive study of the varying responses to golf-related environmental issues, it is based on extensive empirical work, including research into historical materials and interviews with stakeholders in golf such as course superintendents, protesters and health professionals. The authors examine golf as a sport and as a global industry, drawing on and contributing to literatures pertaining to environmental sociology, global social movements, institutional change, corporate environmentalism and the sociology of sport.

“Greening Golf” explores how and why many golfers and tourists have come to see Pinehurst, and thousands of courses like it, as naturally-occurring landscapes and to what degree they should. It examines the tightly bound environmental and cultural history of the Sandhills to explain both the rise of the resort within a very particular environmental context in the post-Civil War rural South, and the surprising ways that golf came to have intense influence over it. Rather than viewing the growth of the sport as the result of cultural and environmental changes in American history, this dissertation treats golf as a historical force of its own. It has shaped individuals like golfers, caddies, and tourists, groups like country clubs, labor organizations, and political parties, and broad entities like economies, agriculture, and ecology. Golf as a force molded every input needed to create the physical space where it was played. Golf not only shaped the golf course but those who constructed it, maintained it, and enjoyed it. It simultaneously normalized and mystified the environment, especially at Pinehurst. Golf imposed new ideas about how landscapes should look, yet, obscured their making. Golf insisted that a course should be wherever its owner decided to build it and disassociated the intensive agricultural practices needed to maintain it. This process of shaping, imposing, and obscuring transformed the Sandhills landscape and its occupants. In the process, golf naturalized grass, the golf course, and Pinehurst in the North Carolina Sandhills.

If you're going to play bogey golf, you can't go around 3-putting every green. Becoming a good putter is important. How important? Just think about it, in a regulation par round, half of all the strokes the golfer takes are putts.

Oliver Cathey, AKA Rick Limmer, retired from a 40 year career as an Operations Research Analyst to play golf at PGA West in La Quinta, CA. Rick believes that a little levity makes for an easy read and makes technical points stick a little easier in your head. In this, his second book about golf, Rick writes about the course management skills that can immediately cut 10 strokes off the scores of high handicap golfers. If you’re a high handicap golfer, this book will show you how going for bogey will get you bogey when going for par gets you doubles and triples. It will show you how to stay out of trouble and how to get out cleanly when you get in trouble anyway. This book will not fi x your swing. It’s aimed at fi xing your game. The author’s Bogey Golfer Solution is demonstrated by examples on two famous golf courses at PGA West, the Arnold Palmer course you see on TV during the Humana Classic and on the PGA West Stadium course that people come from all over the world to play.

"If you watch a game, it's fun. If you play it, it's recreation. If you work at it, it's golf." --Bob Hope This is an easy to read and understand instructional book to help adult players sharpen their skills. Although most golfers never improve once they reach adulthood, author Bill Kroen wants to help those golfers get past that and take their game to a new level. Readers will learn how to really learn the game (not just how to swing), they'll gain a greater sense of awareness of the total golf experience, and they will finally learn how to take their practice game to the golf course. Drawing on his background in psychology, Kroen directs his readers to envision the results they want. Then they can put what they read into practice without the confusion caused by most instructional books. Golf: How Good Do You Want to Be? offers a blueprint for resourceful practice and practical application with chapters including "The Mental Connection," "The Art of Practice," "Thinking Your Way Around the Course," and "Scoring Well."
