Eco-golf is a term that describes a golf course that has been designed to work better with the local environment.  Normally, golf courses are huge users of water (the equivalent of 15,000 people), pesticides, and fertilizers.  These eco-friendly golf courses are designed to cut down on water usage and almost eliminate the need for pesticides.

The Tournament Players Club in Michigan is located in a former dump site.  It was a very neglected area that is now completely restored into a golf course and at the same time, a wildlife sanctuary.  As for watering, the TPC sticks a pencil into the ground, and if it’s wet, they don’t water that night.  This simple method has cut water usage by 30%.
