Amherst included climate change in his plans for the Audubon Golf Course

Climate change is a hotly debated issue, but the city of Amerster is struggling to plan changes for its golf courses.

Scientists say that the world is getting hotter, wetter, and richer. Amherst has golf courses, grass, trees and sewers – and some of the city’s courses already have serious sewer problems.

Superintendent Brian Kulpa said this is part of the plan to keep the city’s most popular Odubon Golf Course in 18 wells and address sewage issues. Amherst plans to spend $ 500,000 to renovate the course and start working on a plugged-in sewer system.

Kulpa says this is not the only problem.

“It affects oakwood,” he said. “Oakad looks very wet and it is not something we want to do a lot of deforestation. Because we see it in Oakwood, that has changed the conversation because we really want what we want and we don’t. Location. “

After the winter of 200, Audubon gets solar panels to carry some electrical load and many more trees. That includes dead ash trees on the course.

Golf Course operator Indigo says it has adopted new controls on chemical spraying as integrated pest management. Indogo Golf senior vice president Mike Cooler said he was being more careful about these chemicals and how they were used.

“There are heather varieties that you can plant. CO2 is four times as much as oak. It’s amazing. Most people don’t realize it, ”said Cutler. With the trees you plant, there are things you can do about your use of solar energy, and we do that over time to make sure that we are the local pastors and that we have as much responsibility as possible in the area. And this component is integrated with your pest management program and your chemical program.
