There is no question that well-managed turfgrass is THE essential element for successful golf. So why bother with those non-turf plants? When selected, placed and managed properly, trees, shrubs, and herbaceous perennials and annuals can enhance the golf experience from the (vehicular) drive through the gates to the victory walk into the 19th hole.
Learn from Kim Todd, registered landscape architect, how these plants can direct visual and physical movement and attention, screen unsightly or interfering objects and views, provide relief from climate extremes, and block errant shots. And through deliberate, well-thought-out management-based design, they can do so while creating a course that attracts golfers and non-golfersâ€”and keeps them coming back.
