How Green is Golf, cont'd

April 25, 2008

It was beginning to look like our readership was a whole lot more intransigent on environmental issues than we thought--previous posts and responses on the subject here--but a poll this week on our web site suggests otherwise.

We asked: In order to conserve water, would you be willing to play on brown grass during periods of low rainfall? Yes or No

Results mid-afternoon today, with about 300 responses:

Yes: 64.91%

No: 35.09%

Not exactly radical, but responsible for sure...Meanwhile, you'll find some interesting discussion on our Golf and the Environment forum.
