Topic - Vineyard Golf Club

The Vineyard Golf Club on Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, (opened in 2002) uses no synthetic pesticides, fertilizers or herbicides making it the only organic golf course in the U.S. The superintendent at the Vineyard Golf Club, Jeff Carlson, was the recipient of the 2003 GCSAA/Golf Digest Environmental Leaders in Golf Award and is the 2008 winner of the President's Award for Environmental Stewardship.Carlson has used the course as a test site for new maintenance practices and products which have helped other courses become more environmentally friendly. The Vineyard Golf club gained further notoriety in 2009 when President Barack Obama played the course, and then in 2010 when he returned to Martha's Vineyard and played the course multiple times. - Source: Wikipedia
