Due to the extremely toxic water run-off from golf courses caused by toxic fertilizers , city councils are demanding course managers to switch to "green" fertilizers. Courses around Monterey Bay, the golf capital of the world, are a good example of what is happening around the country. The public courses owned by American Golf used to amass their grass clippings for compost, but due to the chemical content on the clippings, wild animals were dying at an alarming rate after feasting on the pile of clippings. The private courses in the area: Pebble Beach, Cypress Point, Monterey Peninsula, Poppy Hills, and Spy Glass hill all participate in a cooperative by transporting their grass clippings to a local pellet manufacturer where they are compressed into briquette-size pellets to be used for rodent control. With the toxic coating on the clippings, no poisonous additive is required.
Laguna Seca Raceway used to spread the grass clippings from the local golf courses on the hillsides where race spectators would picnic and view the races. The toxic clippings killed the fire ants that were prevalent on the hillsides. Although the ants were exterminated, many children became ill, also, after spending a day rolling on the "grass".
It may follow that our beloved golf course owner, "ryder", may be a COIN spreader soon.
