Golf Courses Maybe Not Totally Evil


As a hater of golf courses, maybe I need to relax somewhat? “Two Swedish scientists found that a large majority (63 percent) of the 200+ golf courses they studied in the UK ‘were found to have ecological values similar to or higher than nature-protected sites’ such as forest areas, state parks, and biological preserves. They concluded that ‘golf courses play an essential role in biodiversity conservation and ecosystems management.’”
