Golf courses impact the environment through alterations to habitat and through the release of nutrients and pesticides. The Precambrian Shield region of central Ontario, Canada, which is a major recreational area, is especially susceptible to the impacts of golf courses as a result of the geology and hydrology of the region. In a monitoring program at two golf courses in the Muskoka region conducted during the spring, summer, and fall of 2002, semipermeable membrane devices (SPMDs) were… 
Fate and Transport of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons in Upland Irish Headwater Lake Catchments
Concentrations of PAHs were highest at the east coast sites, potentially due to contributions from historical transboundary and regional combustion sources.
Leachability of some emerging contaminants in reclaimed municipal wastewater‐irrigated turf grass fields
The pollution risk screenings identified the same six compounds as having the potential to contaminate groundwater, and under conditions of turf grass irrigation, clofibric acid and ibuprofen would be most prone to cause the pollution.
CHLORPYRIFOS AND MALATHION RESIDUES IN SOILS OF A TERENGGANU GOLF COURSE: A CASE STUDY (Residu Klorpirifos dan Malathion Dalam Tanah di Padang Golf Terengganu: Satu Kajian Kes)
A preliminary study was conducted to determine the residues of organophosphorus insecticides, Chlorpyrifos and Malathion, in soils of a local 18-hole golf course in order to evaluate their
Reducing Pesticide Risk Associated With Dollar Spot Management on Golf Course Turfgrass
Pesticides are critical tools for golf course managers to maintain healthy and economically profitable golf course playing surfaces. However, the intensity and types of pesticides used on golf
20 Years of Air-Water Gas Exchange Observations for Pesticides in the Western Arctic Ocean.
The time trends and air-water exchange of OCPs and CUPs from research expeditions conducted between 1993 and 2013 are reported, suggesting selective removal of more labile TC and/or a shift in chlordane sources.


Sediment chemical contamination and toxicity associated with a coastal golf course complex
The impact of golf course runoff on sediment quality may be subtle and sensitive biological assessment methods, such as chronic toxicity tests, will be needed to detect adverse effects.
Mobilization of pesticides on an agricultural landscape flooded by a torrential storm
Significant quantities of herbicides are mobilized to aquatic environments when prairie agricultural landscapes are subjected to torrential storms, and flooded wells and small municipal reservoirs used as sources of drinking water may be compromised by 10 or more pesticides, some at relatively high concentrations.
Estimation of Leachability and Persistence of Pesticides at Golf Courses from Point-Source Monitoring and Model To Predict Pesticide Leaching to Groundwater
The monitoring of 19 pesticides in drainage and groundwater at a golf course was performed when there was no runoff water. The loading rates of most pesticides via leaching water were lower than 4%
Evaluating best management practices at an urban golf course
An assessment of macroinvertebrate populations indicated an improvement in taxa richness, as well as repopulation by less tolerant organisms, which can be used to develop and refine golf course management procedures to protect aquatic environments.
Behaviour and mobility of preemergent herbicides in turfgrass: A field study
Abstract The quality of many golf courses and other turfgrass areas often requires high levels of cultural management. The fact that this level of maintenance usually includes the use of preemergent
Distribution of degradation products of alkylphenol ethoxylates near sewage treatment plants in the lower Great Lakes, North America
Degradation of alkylphenol ethoxylate (APEO) surfactants in the environment leads to the formation of relatively hydrophobic compounds such as nonylphenol (NP), octylphenol (OP), nonylphenol
Export of nutrients from golf courses on the Precambrian Shield.
Retention of organic and inorganic chemicals by the drainage/supply piping material.
