To consistently maintain the rich green turf of a golf course, you need to use a high amount of water, electricity, and fertilizer. The best thing that makes people enjoy golf is that it keeps them connected to the natural beauty and freshness of pure nature.

It is important to use sustainable ways to maintain the golf course and reduce the amount of waste. Materials which are easy to maintain should be used such as stone walls, walkways, and thatched roofs.
