End the mania for golf courses


What’s this golf obsession? I’d be pleased if The Cliffs Over Maple Bay developmen­t is halted.

Homeowners are told to conserve water and to water their plants only on specified days, while golf courses suck up huge amounts of water.

The runoff of fertilizer­s needed to keep those greens green further pollutes and compromise­s water supplies.

Golf courses destroy habitat for animals.

Golf courses and their associated developmen­ts wreck naturescap­es that could be enjoyed by humans with much less interferen­ce in the ecology of the area. Diane McNally Victoria
