Wastewater Reuse for Golf Course Irrigation, authored by leading researchers and practitioners, covers a wide range of technical and regulatory aspects of how and why to irrigate golf courses with reused wastewater. Water quality, water conservation, regulations, water rights, water delivery, design of systems, monitoring concerns, retrofitting a course for recycled water, and successful case studies are just some of the important topics covered in this informative, valuable book. California, Arizona, and Florida are a few of the states that have laws mandating the uses of reused wastewater. This book will help golf course superintendents, irrigation consultants, architects, and builders understand how it affects their job and what to do about it.
Managing Wildlife Habitat on Golf Courses is written for those who care about golf and the environment. It provides a practical framework for environmentally sensitive land management practices. This book is the perfect resource for anyone striving to maintain the traditions of the game, enhance the natural environment of their golf course, and gain support for their efforts.
Many new golf courses have opened since the first edition of John Redmond's guide. This enlarged version reflects that fact with updated information on each of the 30 originally featured, plus photography and descriptions of four new courses: the European Club, Fota Island, Druid's Glen and Portmanock Links.
"Golf courses and course design ate for more than golfers; good courses attract birds for the enjoyment of all. Scott Gillihan shows how to effectively create and manage courses that contribute to bird conservation."—Richard M. DeGraaf, Chief Research Wildlife Biologists, USDA Forest Service "Golf courses are habitat for birds. Scott Gillihan does a superb job describing the bird management possibilities for managers of golf courses and other habitats. May the day come when golfers in conference at the 19th hole talk about two kinds of birdies that added to the day's enjoyment."—Jack Ward Thomas, Boone and Crockett Professor of Wildlife Conservation, University of Montana "The book will be an important reference for golf course management professionals who wish to be good stewards of birds and other wildlife on their property. The conservation philosophy and guidance that you offer should allow conscientious superintendents to establish a sound approach to bird conservation on their courses."—Thomas M. Franklin, Wildlife Policy Directory, The Wildlife Society
