The University of Waterloo (UW) Golf Course, located in Waterloo Ontario, was evaluated for its sustainability efforts on the basis of five environmental criteria recognized by the Audubon Society and the U.S. Golf Association.
Results of this assessment revealed positive results with regard to water use, disposal of grass clippings and prevalence of native trees on the course; however, improvement is recommended in the areas of waste management and outreach and education of the public at large.
Proposal for expansion of the UW course is a possibility. Included in this study is background information regarding this expansion and suggestion for sustainable transition and maintenance of an expanded system.
