Failures Of An Organic Golf Course – Laurelwood Golf Course – A Low-Class Municipal Golf Course That Cannot Possibly Afford Organic Pesticide Free – 2021 07 29



Summary & Overview

The Laurelwood Failure

Laurelwood Is A Low-Class 9-

Hole Municipal Golf Course That

Cannot Possibly Afford The Cost

Of Millions & Millions Of Dollars

For Organic Pesticide Free

Laurelwood Golf Course

NOT ORGANIC PESTICIDE-FREE     

LAURELWOOD Golf Course, located in Eugene, Oregon, USA, is a 9-hole municipal facility where male-golfers are allowed to GO SHIRTLESS & where local residents are permitted WALK THEIR DOGS.

LAURELWOOD is a small, insignificant, low-class golf course. 

LAURELWOOD is NOT « ORGANIC »   it is merely « FAKE-ORGANIC » that PRETENDS TO BE ORGANIC. 

« ORGANIC » means that a golf course has SELF-IMPOSED PROHIBITION against ALL conventional pest control products, rendering it « PESTICIDE-FREE ». 

LAURELWOOD CANNOT possibly be « ORGANIC » since it neither has the financing nor the capability to be « ORGANIC ». 

Besides, there is ONLY ONE « ORGANIC » golf course in America    & it is not LAURELWOOD. 

Why aren’t there more « ORGANIC » golf courses ? 

Unfortunately, « ORGANIC » requires staggering & unlimited amounts of money, which LAURELWOOD itself cannot afford. 

Sadly, only the ULTRA-WEALTHY ELITE GOLF COURSES are able to afford « ORGANIC », which would be FINANCIALLY-IMPOSSIBLE for most other main-stream golf courses. 

« ORGANIC » costs millions & millions of dollars. 

No main-stream golf course can afford this #@!!% « ORGANIC » nonsense. 

What about « ORGANIC » fertilizers ? 

« ORGANIC » means « PESTICIDE-FREE » & has nothing to do with fertilizers. 

Besides, LAURELWOOD could not possibly afford the « ORGANIC & NATURAL FERTILIZER ALTERNATIVES » being IMPOSED by the lunatжcs who govern the city of Eugene. 

Consequently, LAURELWOOD’s « FERTILIZER ALTERNATIVES » HAD TO BE FINANCED BY EUGENE ITSELF. 

Additionally, LAURELWOOD’s preference for « ORGANIC & NATURAL » fertilizers, which contain common blood meal, bone meal, feather meal, & meat meal, is truly an unnecessary & needlessly expensive choice. 

Nonetheless, LAURELWOOD is NOT « ORGANIC » since it is definitely NOT « PESTICIDE-FREE », but rather, it practices the « HYBRID PESTICIDE USE APPROACH », which means it still USES PESTICIDES WITH IMPUNITY. 

LAURELWOOD is a mere « FAKE-ORGANIC » & a « HYBRID PESTICIDE USE » golf course that PRETENDS TO BE ORGANIC.    

Incredibly, those who operate LAURELWOOD are practicing the « HYBRID PESTICIDE USE APPROACH » which includes the regular use of conventional pest control products, WHEN IT SUITS THEIR PURPOSES. 

LAURELWOOD is operated by hypocrites, liars, frauds, & weaklings. 

For several years, local left-wing, golf-hating, anti-pesticide, & anti-fertilizer extremists have continuously coerced, intimidated, & terrжrized those who operate LAURELWOOD.

These extremists have made demands that LAURELWOOD self-impose PROHIBITION against both conventional fertilizers & pest control products. 

However, « PESTICIDE-FREE » will always be DOOMED-TO-FAIL at LAURELWOOD. 

This is because « PESTICIDE-FREE » inputs, a.k.a. green alternative pesticides, are failed, incorrect, medieval, radical, stunningly expensive, unnecessary, unproven, & / or will never work. 

These demands defy the risk assessment of these products that indicates that they are scientifically-safe, &, when used correctly, will NOT cause harm to human health & the environment. 

Using LAURELWOOD as an example of an « ORGANIC » golf course represents a TERRIBLE TEMPLATE for superintendents. 

At LAURELWOOD, « ORGANIC » & « PESTICIDE-FREE » practices are HUGE OPERATIONAL FAILURES. 

The INFAMOUS Vineyard Golf Club, Massachusetts, USA, is the ONLY « ORGANIC » golf course in America. 

Laurelwood Golf Course

DEADLY EXPERIMENTATION     

LAURELWOOD uses pesticides whenever the need arises. 

Ostensively, conventional products will be applied when paying-golfers are NOT present on the property, or when the facilities are closed. 

The so-called success of the « HYBRID PESTICIDE USE APPROACH » is promoted by officials at LAURELWOOD, with UNVERIFIABLE SUCCESS STORIES.

There is NO industry & NO regulatory oversight concerning any LAURELWOOD allegations. 

Without oversight, LAURELWOOD’s officials can say whatever they want, & they can LIE with impunity, especially about any FLAGRANT USE OF PESTICIDES, or about any LARGE-SCALE-DEATH.

Without oversight, they can conveniently ignore the DISASTER at LAURELWOOD resulting in LARGE-SCALE-DEATH because of amateurish, non-scientific, & deadly experimentation that hopelessly relied upon trial & error. 

LAURELWOOD’S EXPERIMENTATION IS A HUGE EXPENSIVE & DEADLY FAILURE. 

According to a LAURELWOOD official    « I’VE BEEN EXPERIMENTING PRETTY HEAVILY WE STARTED KILLING STUFF WE GOT PRETTY GOOD AT KILLING STUFF » .    

Using LAURELWOOD as an example of golf course maintenance of any kind represents a TERRIBLE TEMPLATE for superintendents. 

Laurelwood Golf Course

THE GOLF INDUSTRY DOESNOT NEED ORGANIC 

The golf industry’s superintendents must NOT readily embrace the FALSE-ALLEGATIONS & PROPAGANDA of LAURELWOOD Golf Course. 

The golf industry must respond by ENDING its validation of LAURELWOOD. 

Furthermore, the golf industry cannot possibly consider LAURELWOOD as a TEMPLATE that serves as an example for the golf industry.  [ ?!?!?!?! ] 

In essence, LAURELWOOD represents a TERRIBLE ATTACK against main-stream superintendents & their facilities. 

LAURELWOOD is recognized as a HUGE FRAUDULENT FAILURE. 

The golf industry DOES NOT need this « ORGANIC » nonsense. 

The golf industry DOES need to satisfy paying-customers who want golf courses with high-quality playing conditions & aesthetics provided by greener, thicker, pest-free, & manicured turf conditions. 

The golf industry CAN be successful when following the protocols & performance standards for science-based & time-tested & correct maintenance practices. 

Summary & Overview

CRITICAL ISSUES    

The golf industry’s superintendents must recognize that they are on a collision course with the looming shipwreck of golf-hating & anti-pesticide extremism. 

Even though they enjoy exception statuses from municipal or provincial pesticide bans, superintendents face some huge challenges because of their high degree of vulnerability concerning several public affairs issues. 

In order to successfully deter the malicious efforts of all mindless attacks against their golf facilities, several critical issues must immediately be addressed    see link below. 

Summary & Overview

NO UNCERTAINTIES ABOUT PESTICIDES    

There are NO worries & NO uncertainties with pest control products.

National regulatory agencies, world-wide, have found that pest control products DO NOT present risks of concern to human health or the environment when correctly used according to label directions.

ON THE GOLF OREGON WEB-SITE ABOUT LAURELWOOD GOLF COURSE    

Course maintenance is 99 PER CENT ORGANIC. 

99 PER CENT ORGANIC ?!?!    THIS MEANS LAURELWOOD IS NOT ORGANIC    LAURELWOOD IS FAKE-ORGANIC

They do not use any fertilizers or pesticides.  [ FALSE ! ] 

They make their own compost on site.  [ SO WHAT ?!?! ] 

They use molasses on the greens.  [ SO WHAT ?!?! ] 

ON THE LAURELWOOD GOLF COURSE WEB-SITE    

Laurelwood Golf Course is a  [ MERE ]  9-hole public golf course that opened in 1929. 

Originally designed by Clarence Sutton and updated by Dan Hixon in 2019, Laurelwood Golf Course measures over 3,000 yards from the longest tees and has a slope rating of 131 and a 35.1 USGA rating. 

Our course features four sets of tees for different skill levels. 

The greens are bentgrass and the fairways are Poa annua  [ A.K.A. ANNUAL BLUEGRASS ]  grass. 

[ … ] 

In 1968, the city of Eugene bought the course. 

In 1969, the course was annexed to the city of Eugene. 

[ … ] 

The course is fairly open without water  [ HAZARDS ] , few bunkers, but many old, beautiful fir and oak trees. 

Fairways are mixed and can be spotty, but the small greens are good and have a lot of nuances. 

[ … ] 

  Hilly, a good walk   

[ … ] 

The course is under city parks, so the dress code follows those for city parks    it is one of the few courses in the state where MEN CAN GO SHIRTLESS. 

In addition, you can WALK YOUR DOG on the course, provided it is on a leash. 

Background Information

FAKE-ORGANIC AT LAURELWOOD   

There is ONLY ONE « ORGANIC » & « PESTICIDE-FREE » golf course in America    the INFAMOUS Vineyard Golf Club, Massachusetts, USA. 

Remember    all others are NOT « ORGANIC » golf courses. 

LAURELWOOD Golf Course located in Eugene, Oregon, USA, is NOT « ORGANIC ».

So-called « ORGANIC » golf courses are all « FAKE-ORGANIC » that PRETEND TO BE ORGANIC. 

LAURELWOOD is « FAKE-ORGANIC ». 

According to information posted on the Golf Oregon web-site   

[ LAURELWOOD’S ] course maintenance is 99 PER CENT ORGANIC [ ?!?! ] ; they do not use any fertilizers or pesticides [ FALSE ! ] , they make their own compost on site [ SO WHAT ?!?! ] , and they use molasses on the greens [ SO WHAT ?!?! ] .

LAURELWOOD’s claim of 99 PER CENT ORGANIC means it is NOT « ORGANIC ». 

LAURELWOOD IS OPERATED BY HYPOCRITES, LIARS, & FRAUDS.

These golf courses practice the so-called « HYBRID PESTICIDE USE APPROACH » that includes the regular use of conventional pest control products whenever the need arises. 

Ostensively, conventional products will be applied when paying-golfers are NOT present on the property, or when the facilities are closed. 

The so-called success of the « HYBRID PESTICIDE USE APPROACH » is promoted by « ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENTS », like LAURELWOOD’s Will Benson, with UNVERIFIABLE SUCCESS STORIES. 

There is NO industry & NO regulatory oversight concerning any allegations concerning « ORGANIC » or « PESTICIDE-FREE » or « HYBRID PESTICIDE USE » maintenance. 

Without oversight, « ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENTS », like LAURELWOOD’s Benson, can say whatever they want, & they can LIE with impunity, especially about any flagrant use of pesticides. 

Without oversight, they can conveniently ignore the DISASTER at LAURELWOOD resulting in large-scale-death as it performed amateurish, non-scientific, & deadly experimentation that hopelessly relied upon trial & error with illegal & medieval & ineffective nutrient & / or pesticide alternatives.

LAURELWOOD’S EXPERIMENTATION IS A HUGE EXPENSIVE & DEADLY FAILURE. 

According to « ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT » Benson    « I’VE BEEN EXPERIMENTING PRETTY HEAVILY WE STARTED KILLING STUFF WE GOT PRETTY GOOD AT KILLING STUFF » . 

Background Information

DEFINING ORGANIC   

« ORGANIC » means that a golf course has SELF-IMPOSED PROHIBITION against ALL conventional pest control products, rendering it « PESTICIDE-FREE ». 

There is ONLY ONE « ORGANIC » & « PESTICIDE-FREE » golf course in America    the INFAMOUS Vineyard Golf Club, Massachusetts, USA. 

All others are NOT « ORGANIC » golf courses. 

They are « FAKE-ORGANIC » that PRETEND TO BE ORGANIC. 

According to « ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT » Jeff Carlson, at Vineyard Golf Club   

We need to get a set of guidelines and criteria for what organic golf really means, and we’re working on it, but basically it means NO PESTICIDES OR FERTILIZERS or other products can be used whose active ingredient was SYNTHETICALLY PRODUCED. 

After decades of benefiting from the golf industry’s PESTICIDE BAN EXCEPTION STATUS, some « ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENTS » have ridiculously decided to SELF-IMPOSE their own forms of PROHIBITIONS, & convert their golf courses to « FAKE-ORGANIC ». 

Observers are aghast that « ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENTS » have been invalidating & attacking the PESTICIDE BAN EXCEPTION STATUS that allowed the golf industry to avoid being subjected to PROHIBITION for a generation, thanks to the unbelievable lobbying by Mr William H Gathercole in the 1990s. 

The golf industry must NOT readily embrace the FALSE-ALLEGATIONS & PROPAGANDA concerning « ORGANIC » maintenance. 

Furthermore, the golf industry cannot possibly consider « ORGANIC » as a TEMPLATE that serves as an example for the golf industry. 

The golf industry DOES NOT need this « ORGANIC » nonsense. 

The golf industry DOES need to satisfy paying-customers who want golf courses with HIGH-QUALITY PLAYING CONDITIONS & AESTHETICS ACHIEVED BY THICKER, GREENER, PEST-FREE, & MANICURED TURF. 

The golf industry CAN be successful when following the protocols & performance standards for science-based & time-tested & correct maintenance practices. 

Background Information

DEFINING ACTIVIST SUPERINTENDENTS   

« ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENTS » represent the GREATEST THREATS to the modern golf industry. 

They have chosen to deviate from, & conveniently ignore, main-stream turf maintenance practices that are overwhelmingly science-based, time-tested, correct, & disciplined.

They needlessly alarm & enrage the public by spreading inaccurate pesticide-hating propaganda. 

They adopt the false doctrine that the use of conventional pesticides is a harmful practice. 

Moreover, « ORGANIC » & « PESTICIDE-FREE » maintenance doctrines are promoted by « ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENTS » with UNVERIFIABLE SUCCESS STORIES. 

More precisely, these activists LIE about pesticides.

They LIE & LIE & LIE & LIE  ―  they never stop. 

These activists are, seemingly, mentally-challenged & incompetent    they represent NO useful purpose to the golf industry. 

In essence, superintendents are NOT paid to be « ACTIVISTS ». 

They are paid to satisfy paying-golfers who demand HIGH-QUALITY PLAYING CONDITIONS & AESTHETICS ACHIEVED BY THICKER, GREENER, PEST-FREE, & MANICURED TURF. 

They CANNOT BE TRUSTED, & they do not represent main-stream golf course superintendents. 

They are a THREAT to the golf industry, & they are BAD for golf business.

There is NO industry, & NO regulatory, oversight concerning any of the FALSE-ALLEGATIONS by « ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENTS ». 

In essence, these « ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENTS » can say whatever they want, & they can LIE & LIE & LIE & LIE with impunity. 

« ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENTS » simply DO NOT deserve to work in the industry that they betray. 

The golf industry should focus on the fact that conventional pest control products are SCIENTIFICALLY SAFE since they have been scrutinized & approved by the HUNDREDS of expert-scientists at US Environmental Protection Agency ( US EPA ) & Health Canada. 

Overall, when they are used properly, there are NO harmful irreversible effects to human health & the environment !

―――――――――――――――――――

Background Information

ATTACK-STATEMENTS BY GOLF ( DOT ) COM ?   

Has golf ( dot ) com BETRAYED the golf industry ? 

Golf ( dot ) com, the digital edition of Golf Magazine, published the anti-golf-industry article entitled « WHAT IS AN ORGANIC GOLF COURSE, & WHY AREN’T THERE MORE OF THEM ? ».

It is unsettling that the « ACTIVIST-PUBLISHERS » at golf ( dot ) com would demand that the golf industry must adopt COSTLY, FAILED, MEDIEVAL, INEFFECTIVE, & UNFEASIBLE maintenance practices, such as « ORGANIC » & « PESTICIDE-FREE » & « IPM », that are clearly anti-golf-industry. 

Golf course pesticide use is a « BAD THING », according to ATTACK-STATEMENTS by golf ( dot ) com. 

It is inconceivable that golf ( dot ) com would accuse pesticide-using superintendents of acting like « MINIONS » of the so-called chemical industry. 

It is further inconceivable that golf ( dot ) com would conspire to impose PROHIBITION against pest control products needed by the golf industry. 

It is NOT the role of golf ( dot ) com to dictate policies to the golf industry    its mindless-activist ATTACK-STATEMENTS must end. 

Background Information

LAURELWOOD PRETENDS TO BE ORGANIC   

LAURELWOOD’s « ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT » Will Benson practices the so-called « HYBRID PESTICIDE USE APPROACH » maintenance that includes the regular use of conventional pest control products, when it suits his purposes. 

LAURELWOOD is NOT an « ORGANIC » golf course. 

It PRETENDS TO BE ORGANIC. 

There is ONLY ONE « ORGANIC » & « PESTICIDE-FREE » golf course in America, the INFAMOUS Vineyard Golf Club, Massachusetts, USA. 

All other supposedly « ORGANIC » golf courses, like LAURELWOOD Golf Course, in Eugene, Oregon, are merely PRETENDING TO BE ORGANIC. 

In fact, they are « FAKE-ORGANIC » golf courses, or more precisely, they are golf courses that practice the « HYBRID PESTICIDE USE APPROACH ». 

Incredibly, those who operate these golf courses, like LAURELWOOD, are practicing the « HYBRID PESTICIDE USE APPROACH » that includes the regular use of conventional pest control products, when it suits their purposes. 

LAURELWOOD IS OPERATED BY HYPOCRITES, LIARS, & FRAUDS.

This is because « ORGANIC » inputs, a.k.a. green alternative pesticides, are costly, failed, incorrect, medieval, radical, unproven, & / or will never work. 

« ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT » Jeff Carlson, at Vineyard Golf Club, has described the « HYBRID PESTICIDE USE APPROACH », which means that pesticides are being used with impunity   

I’ve noticed a tremendous interest in managing golf courses MORE ORGANICALLY  [ A.K.A. HYBRID PESTICIDE USE ] , especially among younger superintendents  [ WHO DO NOT KNOW ANY BETTER ] . 

Golf courses managed « MORE ORGANICALLY » are just PRETENDING TO BE ORGANIC. 

They are « FAKE-ORGANIC » golf courses, or more precisely, they are golf courses that practice the « HYBRID PESTICIDE USE APPROACH ». 

It is impossible for golf course superintendents to maintain high-quality playing conditions & aesthetics by relying upon « ORGANIC » & « PESTICIDE-FREE » & other medieval & ineffective maintenance practices. 

Without conventional pest control products, « ORGANIC » golf courses will become infested with recurring invasive weeds & destructive insects & harmful diseases    unless STAGGERING & UNLIMITED AMOUNTS OF MONEY are wasted on discouraged pest-picking labour & medieval-ineffective practices, like at the INFAMOUS Vineyard Golf Club.

Unverifiable Success

Laurelwood’s Supposed Organic Maintenance

Is Promoted By Its Activist-Superintendent

With Unverifiable Success Stories

AT THE FAKE-ORGANIC LAURELWOOD GOLF COURSE    

Now that he’s « OVER-THE-HUMP » and has used  [ FAKE ]  « ORGANIC PESTICIDE-FREE MAINTENANCE » for 10 years,  [ ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT ]  Will Benson explains that he doesn’t encounter the same diseases that he used to.  [ ?!?!?!?! ] 

Benson noted that perhaps the herbicides, pesticides, and fungicides themselves were CONTRIBUTORS TO DISEASE  [ ?!?!?!?! ]  because, « WHEN YOU’RE KILLING FUNGI, THE WORLD BECOMES OUT OF BALANCE »  [ WRONG ! ] . 

Although « ORGANIC » golf courses are few and far between, the test cases have produced PROMISING RESULTS  [ I.E. UNVERIFIABLE SUCCESS ] . 

PROMISING RESULTS ?!?!   

PESTICIDES CONTINUE TO BE USED WITH IMPUNITY AT LAURELWOOD

THE INFAMOUS VINEYARD GOLF CLUB IS THE ONLY ORGANIC GOLF COURSE IN AMERICA    LAURELWOOD IS NOT ORGANIC

UNFORTUNATELY, ORGANIC REQUIRES STAGGERING & UNLIMITED AMOUNTS OF MONEY

Places like the  [ INFAMOUS ]  Vineyard &  [ FAKE-ORGANIC ]  LAURELWOOD golf courses are PROOF  [ ?!?! ]  that « ORGANIC PESTICIDE-FREE MAINTENANCE » can produce COMPARABLE beauty  [ FALSE ! ]  and playability  [ FALSE ! ]  to their chemical counterparts  [ THIS IS UNVERIFIABLE SUCCESS ] . 

Background Information

UNVERIFIABLE SUCCESS AT LAURELWOOD   

LAURELWOOD Golf Course, in Eugene, Oregon, is NOT an « ORGANIC » golf course. 

It is « FAKE-ORGANIC » that PRETENDS TO BE ORGANIC. 

It uses the practices of the so-called « HYBRID PESTICIDE USE APPROACH » that includes the regular use of conventional pest control products, when it suits its purposes. 

There is ONLY ONE « ORGANIC » & « PESTICIDE-FREE » golf course in America    Vineyard Golf Club, Massachusetts, USA. 

Remember    all others are NOT « ORGANIC » golf courses. 

Ostensively, conventional products will be applied at LAURELWOOD when paying-golfers are NOT present on the property, or when the facilities are closed. 

LAURELWOOD’s supposed « ORGANIC » maintenance is promoted by its « ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT » with UNVERIFIABLE SUCCESS STORIES. 

There is NO industry & NO regulatory oversight concerning any of LAURELWOOD’s allegations.

Weaning-Off Pesticides ? 

Laurelwood’s Hybrid Pesticide Use
Approach Allows Pesticide Treatments

Maintaining An Organic Focus Does
Not Mean That Laurelwood Is Organic

AT THE FAKE-ORGANIC LAURELWOOD GOLF COURSE    

Other golf courses similar to  [ INFAMOUS ]  Vineyard Golf Club, like LAURELWOOD Golf Course, in Eugene, Oregon, take more of a HYBRID APPROACH  [ A.K.A. HYBRID PESTICIDE USE APPROACH ]  while MAINTAINING AN « ORGANIC » FOCUS.  [ ?!?!?!?! ] 

HYBRID APPROACH WHILE MAINTAINING AN ORGANIC FOCUS ?!?!   

HYBRID APPROACH MEANS PESTICIDES CONTINUE TO BE USED WITH IMPUNITY AT LAURELWOOD

MAINTAINING AN ORGANIC FOCUS DOES NOT MEAN THAT LAURELWOOD IS ORGANIC

PESTICIDE USE HAS NOT STOPPED AT LAURELWOOD

[ ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT ]  Will Benson’s SUCCESS  [ AS A FAKE-ORGANIC GOLF COURSE ]  at LAURELWOOD shows that courses can successfully be WEANED-OFF PESTICIDES  [ FALSE ! FALSE ! FALSE ! ] . 

Background Information

WEANING-OFF PESTICIDES AT LAURELWOOD ?   

LAURELWOOD’s so-called « ORGANIC PESTICIDE-FREE MAINTENANCE » is recognized as a HUGE FRAUDULENT FAILURE.

The allegation that there is « WEANING THE GOLF COURSE OFF PESTICIDES » is a ridiculous comparison to drug addition. 

Golf courses are NOT drug addicts. 

The most prominent « ORGANIC » FAILURE is LAURELWOOD Golf Course    since it is NOT an « ORGANIC » golf course    it is actually « FAKE-ORGANIC » that PRETENDS TO BE ORGANIC. 

It describes itself as an « ORGANIC » golf course. 

It is actually a golf course that practices the « HYBRID PESTICIDE USE APPROACH ».

This allows « ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT » Will Benson to resort to using conventional pest control products    when it suits his purposes. 

This is LAURELWOOD’s HYPOCRITICAL, DECEPTIVE, & FRAUDULENT approach towards its « HYBRID PESTICIDE USE APPROACH ».

This occurs because « ORGANIC » & « PESTICIDE-FREE » practices FAIL    which is ALL THE TIME    unless STAGGERING & UNLIMITED AMOUNTS OF MONEY ARE SPENT. 

LAURELWOOD cannot afford this #@!!% « ORGANIC » & « PESTICIDE-FREE » nonsense. 

Ostensively, pest control products will likely be applied at LAURELWOOD when paying-golfers are NOT present on the property, or when the facilities are closed. 

LAURELWOOD’s so-called « ORGANIC PESTICIDE-FREE MAINTENANCE » is a HUGE FRAUDULENT FAILURE.

LAURELWOOD IS OPERATED BY HYPOCRITES, LIARS, & FRAUDS.

Lowering Expectations

It Is Not The Role Of Laurelwood

To Dictate Expectations Of Playing

Conditions To Its Golfer-Customers

Golfers Are Not « Into » Having Their
Expectations Reduced Or Recalibrated

AT THE FAKE-ORGANIC LAURELWOOD GOLF COURSE    

Better yet,  [ ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT ]  Will Benson said that LAURELWOOD’s golfers haven’t had to RECALIBRATE EXPECTATIONS because the course looks and plays as good as ever  [ VERY UNLIKELY ! ]  and that the golfers are « INTO IT ». 

Benson has been transparent about his process from the start, so during the first couple of years of LAURELWOOD’s OVERHAUL  [ IN DEFIANCE OF SCIENCE-BASED MAINTENANCE PRACTICES ] , players knew what was happening behind the scenes.

Background Information

GOLFERS MUST PUT-UP & SHUT-UP AT LAURELWOOD ?   

In all likelihood, paying-golfers at LAURELWOOD Golf Course, in Eugene, Oregon, have had to RECALIBRATE EXPECTATIONS  [ I.E. LOWER EXPECTATIONS ] about PLAYING CONDITIONS. 

In other words, « ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT » Will Benson has demanded that LAURELWOOD’s owners & their
paying-golfers must
PUT-UP & SHUT-UP & that their EXPECTATIONS must be LOWERED. 

This calls in question LAURELWOOD’s ability to provide what paying-golfers demand    HIGH-QUALITY PLAYING CONDITIONS & AESTHETICS. 

Actually, it is NOT the role of any superintendent to dictate EXPECTATIONS to golf-customers. 

A correct & disciplined main-stream superintendent is responsible to provide paying-golfers with HIGH-QUALITY PLAYING CONDITIONS & AESTHETICS, at a minimum, on all putting greens. 

Remember    LAURELWOOD Golf Course is NOT an « ORGANIC » golf course    « ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT » Benson practices the so-called « HYBRID PESTICIDE USE APPROACH » that includes the regular use of conventional pest control products, when it suits him. 

In other words, this HYPOCRITE, LIAR, & FRAUD uses pesticides with impunity, & yet, still demands that paying-golfers must PUT-UP & SHUT-UP & that their EXPECTATIONS must be LOWERED.

Laurelwood Golf Course

Medieval & Ineffective Practices 

The Golf Industry Must Discredit Facilities
Like Laurelwood That Embraces The
Medieval & Ineffective Practices Of
Organic & Pesticide-Free Maintenance

AT THE FAKE-ORGANIC LAURELWOOD GOLF COURSE    

Since most of « ORGANIC PESTICIDE-FREE MAINTENANCE » is UNCHARTED TERRITORY  [ BECAUSE IT WILL NEVER WORK ] , research backed by the SCIENTIFIC METHOD  [ PERFORMED BY NON-SCIENTIFIC AMATEURS ]  is a critical resource for superintendents on the « ORGANIC » mission. 

[ ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT ]  Will Benson explained that a handful of published SCIENTIFIC FINDINGS  [ WRITTEN BY NON-SCIENTIFIC AMATEURS ]  have become « PRICELESS » educational resources  [ ?!?!?!?! ] , helping him develop  [ MEDIEVAL & INEFFECTIVE ]  practices for effectively maintaining his greens, fairways, and rough during all four seasons. 

Background Information

REMEMBER   

The maintenance program at LAURELWOOD Golf Course is NOT « PESTICIDE-FREE ».

« ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT » Will Benson practices so-called « HYBRID PESTICIDE USE APPROACH » that includes the regular use of conventional pest control products, when it suits him. 

Main-stream superintendents will not imitate FAILURES like LAURELWOOD & its MEDIEVAL & INEFFECTIVE maintenance. 

LAURELWOOD is a FAILURE since it uses pesticides with impunity    the main-stream superintendent can be comfortable in RESPONSIBLY, SAFELY & EFFECTIVELY using conventional pest control products.

Publishers At Golf ( Dot ) Com Would
Accuse Superintendents Of Acting Like
The Minions Of The Chemical Industry

STATEMENTS BY GOLF ( DOT ) COM    

Going « ORGANIC » is optional, the adoption of « ORGANIC » methods requires INVESTMENTS  [ I.E. STAGGERING & UNLIMITED AMOUNTS OF MONEY ]  that result in a complete OVERHAUL  [ BY DEFYING SCIENCE-BASED & TIME-TESTED & CORRECT ]  traditional management practices which non-organic courses do not have to deal with.

That OVERHAUL  [ I.E. DEFIANCE OF SCIENCE-BASED PRACTICES ]  would also mean a break in existing economic relationships between the golf industry and partners in the CHEMICAL INDUSTRY and government, further complicating the issue.  [ ?!?!?!?! ] 

So a satisfied superintendent is relatively unlikely to voluntarily adopt  [ MEDIEVAL & INEFFECTIVE ]  « ORGANIC PESTICIDE-FREE MAINTENANCE ».

Background Information

SUPERINTENDENT MINIONS ?   

In essence, LAURELWOOD represents a TERRIBLE ATTACK against main-stream superintendents & their facilities. 

Converting to organic would be complicated by relationships between superintendents & the chemical industry.
[ ?!?!?!?! ] 

Really ?!?! 

In other words, correct & disciplined main-stream golf course superintendents are successful because they operate as « MINIONS » of the so-called chemical industry ?!?!?!?!

Finally, it is inconceivable that « ACTIVIST-PUBLISHERS » at golf ( dot ) com would directly ATTACK the golf industry with its publication. 

Everyone needs to INVALIDATE the ATTACK by « ACTIVIST-PUBLISHERS » at golf ( dot ) com, which are ill-conceived, vague, & / or treacherous criticisms the golf industry & its pesticide use.

Laurelwood Golf Course

Deadly Experimentation

Laurelwood Has Performed Amateurish,

Non-Scientific, & Deadly Experimentation

That Has Hopelessly Relied Upon Trial-&-

Error With Illegal & Medieval & Ineffective

Nutrient & / Or Pesticide Alternatives

AT THE FAKE-ORGANIC LAURELWOOD GOLF COURSE    

[ ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT ]  Will Benson of LAURELWOOD Golf Course is fascinated by  [ THE MEDIEVAL PRACTICES OF ]  « ORGANIC PESTICIDE-FREE GOLF COURSE MAINTENANCE ». 

[ … ] 

As a private contractor  [ A.K.A. ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT ]  for the city of Eugene, Will Benson, began  [ AMATEURISH, NON-SCIENTIFIC, & DEADLY ]  EXPERIMENTING with  [ MEDIEVAL & INEFFECTIVE ]  ORGANIC INPUTS. 

Benson quickly tapped into an on-line WEALTH-OF-KNOWLEDGE  [ ?!?!?!?! ] , and joined « ORGANIC » golf course discussions with EXPERTS  [ ON MEDIEVAL & INEFFECTIVE  MAINTENANCE PRACTICES ?!?! ]  from around the world. 

[ … ] 

While some superintendents make a choice to TRY-OUT  [ I.E. AMATEURISH, NON-SCIENTIFIC, & DEADLY EXPERIMENTATION BY TRIAL-&-ERROR ]  NEW INPUTS  [ I.E. MEDIEVAL & INEFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVES ]  in  [ AMATEURISHLY-MANAGED ]  TEST PLOTS and get opinions from peers and results from university studies, the NEW PLAN didn’t give Will Benson much of a chance. 

According to  [ ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT ]  Will Benson 

The last three years, I’ve been EXPERIMENTING pretty heavily. 

I would say this year, we’ve settled into a pretty good routine.

We got to know how far we could go before WE STARTED KILLING STUFF. 

We got pretty good at KILLING STUFF  [ I.E. LAURELWOOD’S FAKE-ORGANIC PROGRAM DISASTER WITH LARGE-SCALE-DEATH ] , and now we’re a lot better at not killing it. 

Background Information

DEADLY EXPERIMENTATION AT LAURELWOOD   

Do « ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENTS », like Will Benson at LAURELWOOD Golf Course, understand that they are EXPERIMENTING with COSTLY, FAILED, INCORRECT, MEDIEVAL, RADICAL, & UNPROVEN DOCTRINES that WILL NEVER WORK ?!?! 

These activists have chosen to ignore the overwhelming SCIENCE-BASED & TIME-TESTED & CORRECT MAINTENANCE PRACTICES that include pesticide use ?!?! 

In fact, they regularly use conventional pest control products, when it suits them, because LAURELWOOD practices the « HYBRID PESTICIDE USE APPROACH ». 

In other words, these HYPOCRITES, LIARS, & FRAUDS use pesticides with impunity. 

The so-called success of the « HYBRID PESTICIDE USE APPROACH » maintenance is promoted by « ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENTS », like LAURELWOOD’s Will Benson, with UNVERIFIABLE SUCCESS STORIES despite his DEADLY EXPERIMENTATION with illegal & medieval & ineffective nutrient & / or pesticide alternatives. 

LAURELWOOD Golf Course has suffered failure after failure after failure as it performs amateurish, non-scientific, & DEADLY EXPERIMENTATION that has hopelessly relied upon TRIAL-&-ERROR with illegal & medieval & / or ineffective nutrient & pesticide alternatives. 

LAURELWOOD’S EXPERIMENTATION IS A HUGE EXPENSIVE & DEADLY FAILURE.

Since there is NO industry & NO regulatory oversight concerning any allegations concerning LAURELWOOD’s TRIAL-&-ERROR NONSENSE, Benson, can say whatever he wants, & he can LIE with impunity, especially about LARGE-SCALE-DEATH CAUSED BY HIS EXPERIMENTATION. 

According to LACKADAISICAL Benson    « I’VE BEEN EXPERIMENTING PRETTY HEAVILY WE STARTED KILLING STUFF WE GOT PRETTY GOOD AT KILLING STUFF » . 

No main-stream golf course can afford this #@!!% nonsense with « ORGANIC » inputs ?!?!

Able To Afford Golf Courses That Practice

Organic Pesticide-Free Maintenance

Laurelwood’s Stunningly Expensive &

Unnecessary Organic & Natural Fertilizer

Alternatives Have Been Financed By The

Lunatжcs Who Govern The City Of Eugene

STATEMENT BY GOLF ( DOT ) COM    

It is also clear that « ORGANIC PESTICIDE-FREE MAINTENANCE » requires the RIGHT CONTEXTUAL FACTORS  [ I.E. STAGGERING & UNLIMITED AMOUNTS OF MONEY ] . 

The biggest hurdle seems to be FINANCIAL RISK. 

[ … ] 

AT THE FAKE-ORGANIC LAURELWOOD GOLF COURSE    

Unfortunately for Will Benson, that was right around the time the RECESSION hit Eugene.

According to  [ ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT ]  Benson   

Out here, we were kind of the last ones in the RECESSION, and we’re the last ones coming out. 

We weren’t spending anything. 

We were just trying to keep alive. 

With a staff of about four,  [ ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT ]  Benson had to face about a 75 PER CENT BUDGET CUT from the city, he says, and still maintain the course and driving range. 

[ … ] 

In another show of cooperation between the  [ LAURELWOOD ]  course and the city of Eugene, and because the city recognizes the NEED  [ ?!?!?!?! ]  to keep its golf as « GREEN » as possible, Eugene helps to PAY SOME OF THE DIFFERENCE between the typical fertilizer and the upgraded treatment. 

EUGENE HELPS TO PAY SOME OF THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TYPICAL FERTILIZER & THE UPGRADED TREATMENT ?!?!   EUGENE IS FINANCING LAURELWOOD’S STUNNINGLY EXPENSIVE & UNNECESSARY ORGANIC & NATURAL FERTILIZER ALTERNATIVES

It’s in the city’s interest to keep the course in good shape and to keep the sport of golf as « GREEN » as possible.  [ ?!?!?!?! ] 

To Eugene, the goodwill is worth the EXTRA COST.  [ ?!?!?!?! ] 

[ … ] 

As the recession has lifted, though,  [ ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT ]  Benson has seen a little more leeway    not so much in his INPUT RESTRICTIONS as with his budget. 

MORE LEEWAY ON INPUT RESTRICTIONS & BUDGET ?!?!    LAURELWOOD’S INPUT RESTRICTIONS INVOLVES RECKLESS & ARBTRARY PROHIBITION AGAINST CONVENTIONAL PESTICIDES & SYNTHETIC NUTRIENTS WHICH FAVOUR MEDIEVAL & INEFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVES

The city finally agreed to a new business model, and he has a little more freedom to function when choosing what to put down. 

Last year, he spent about 14,500-DOLLARS on INPUTS  [ I.E. MEDIEVAL & INEFFECTIVE PESTICIDE & NUTRIENT ALTERNATIVES ] .

This year, he has about 17,000-DOLLARS to work with. 

Background Information

FINANCING FOR ORGANIC   

Only the ULTRA-WEALTHY ELITE golfers are able to afford golf courses that practice « ORGANIC PESTICIDE-FREE MAINTENANCE ». 

These MEDIEVAL practices will be HUGE OPERATIONAL FAILURES unless STAGGERING & UNLIMITED AMOUNTS OF MONEY are provided by either government hand-outs & / or ultra-wealthy members, like at the INFAMOUS Vineyard Golf Club, Massachusetts, USA. 

Main-stream golf courses cannot afford this #@!!% « ORGANIC PESTICIDE-FREE MAINTENANCE » nonsense. 

Nevertheless, these practices are outmoded, ancient, & CANNOT possibly control pests effectively & economically. 

Moreover, when « ORGANIC PESTICIDE-FREE MAINTENANCE » practices are adopted, pest control will REGRESS by 100 years. 

Background Information

FINANCING AT LAURELWOOD   

LAURELWOOD Golf Course, in Eugene, Oregon, cannot afford the MILLIONS & MILLIONS OF DOLLARS needed for « ORGANIC » & « PESTICIDE-FREE » maintenance practices. 

LAURELWOOD does not have access to the STAGGERING & UNLIMITED AMOUNTS OF MONEY that are available to REAL « ORGANIC » golf courses like the INFAMOUS Vineyard Golf Club, Massachusetts, USA. 

Only the ultra-wealthy elite golfers at Vineyard are able to provide MILLIONS & MILLIONS OF DOLLARS for « ORGANIC » & « PESTICIDE-FREE » maintenance practices. 

These practices have led to what is known as the Vineyard Effect or the Vineyard Syndrome    maintaining Vineyard costs as much as Augusta National Golf Club, if not more. 

Augusta is one of the MOST EXPENSIVE golf facilities in the world    & the least typical golf course on the planet    with demands of ultra-high quality playing conditions & aesthetics & perfection. 

By contrast, in 2014, LAURELWOOD, which is a small, insignificant, low-class, 9-hole, municipal golf course, spent about 14,500-DOLLARS on INPUTS  [ INCLUDING MEDIEVAL & INEFFECTIVE NUTRIENT & PESTICIDE ALTERNATIVES ] . 

In 2015, LAURELWOOD had only about 17,000-DOLLARS to work with. 

By extrapolation, LAURELWOOD’s entire maintenance budget must be less than 150,000-DOLLARS. 

Not the MILLIONS & MILLIONS OF DOLLARS that are available to manage REAL « ORGANIC » golf courses like Vineyard. 

LAURELWOOD cannot possibly afford this #@!!% « ORGANIC » nonsense !

Laurelwood Golf Course

Extremist Neighborhood

Laurelwood’s Surrounding Neighborhood Is

Infested With Nutrient-&-Pesticide-Hating

Extremists Who Will Never Be Put At Ease

AT THE FAKE-ORGANIC LAURELWOOD GOLF COURSE    

As on the  [ INFAMOUS ]  Vineyard Golf Club, the PROGRESSIVE COMMUNITY  that surrounds the LAURELWOOD Golf Course PUT PRESSURE on the course to RE-EVALUATE its chemical use. 

[ … ] 

According the lunatжc-report entitled « LAURELWOOD NON-COMPLIANCE WITH IPM POLICIES OF EUGENE OREGON » authored by local extremists at Oregon Toxics Alliance   

Observations by the neighborhood  [ OF FANATЖCAL-EXTREMISTS ]    

We haven’t heard a single frog or cricket all summer long.  ( Resident living adjacent to golf course )   [ ?!?!?!?! ] 

Many of us neighbors use the golf course paths as a place for exercise and enjoying nature.  We are worried about using areas that are sprayed with neurotoxins.  ( Neighbor & morning walker )  [ ?!?!?!?! ] 

THE PROGRESSIVE COMMUNITY THAT SURROUNDS LAURELWOOD PUT PRESSURE ON THE GOLF COURSE TO RE-EVALUATE ITS CHEMICAL USE ?!?!    OREGON TOXICS ALLIANCE IS A SMALL CLUB OF FANATЖCAL-EXTREMISTS THAT CONSPIRE TO IMPOSE RECKLESS & ARBITRARY PROHIBITION AGAINST CONVENTIONAL PEST CONTROL PRODUCTS UNDER THE PRETEXT OF ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE    THIS GROUP IS LOCATED IN EUGENE, OREGON 

[ … ] 

LAURELWOOD Golf Course in Eugene, Oregon, is a bit different from other courses, says  [ ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT ]  Will Benson.

The nine-hole municipal course is surrounded by ENVIRONMENTALLY-CONSCIOUS NEIGHBORS , who became INCREASINGLY CONCERNED about INPUTS a few years ago. 

[ … ] 

The company provided signs for the course describing the ingredients, which helped put the NEIGHBORS  [ A.K.A. NUTRIENT-&-PESTICIDE-HATING EXTREMISTS ]  AT EASE. 

[ … ] 

The CHANGE OF INPUT plans has been  [ UNVERIFIABLY ]  GOOD FOR THE COURSE  [ ?!?!?!?! ] , says  [ ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT ]  Benson. 

Since he’s required to POST in the surrounding neighborhood  [ INFESTED WITH FERTILIZER-&-PESTICIDE-HATING EXTREMISTS ]  whenever he’s spraying anything, the accountability has been positive PR for LAURELWOOD. 

And he can explain what he’s putting down to the players and city much better now because he’s spent so much time looking into it himself and developing the program. 

Background Information

ENVIRO-TERRЖR WILL NEVER END AGAINST LAURELWOOD   

Eugene’s so-called environmentally-conscious neighbors are actually pesticide-&-nutrient-hating extremists who claim to be increasingly concerned about LAURELWOOD.

Their concerns mean increased coercion & intimidation against LAURELWOOD’s use of inputs, which are safe, effective, & economical pesticides & nutrients. 

These fanatжcal-extremist will never be put at ease since their terrжr against pesticides & nutrients will NEVER END.

& Needlessly Expensive Choices

STATEMENTS BY GOLF ( DOT ) COM    

There’s a chicken-and-egg issue with methods and materials, too. 

The SCARCITY of « ORGANIC » golf courses means that « ORGANIC » INPUTS are NOT IN HIGH DEMAND  [ FALSE ! ] , so they’re difficult to get a hold of  [ FALSE ! ] . 

Benson explained that the NATURE SAFE ORGANIC FERTILIZER he uses is TRUCKED ACROSS THE COUNTRY  [ ?!?!?!?! ]  from Tennessee to Nevada to Oregon ( over 2,200 miles ! ), a trip that has its own financial and economic footprint separate from that of the product’s use.  [ ?!?!?!?! ]

Background Information

ORGANIC FERTILIZERS AT LAURELWOOD   

According to information posted on the Golf Oregon web-site   

[ LAURELWOOD’S ] course maintenance is 99 per cent organic [ FALSE ! ] ; they do not use any fertilizers or pesticides [ FALSE ! ] , they make their own compost on site [ SO WHAT ?!?! ] , and they use molasses on the greens [ SO WHAT ?!?! ] .

« ORGANIC & NATURAL » sources of nitrogen fertilizer used at LAURELWOOD are the equivalent of homeopathic plant food. 

When compared to synthetic products, « ORGANICS » are often deemed a superior source of nitrogen    which is FALSE.

Synthetic versus « ORGANIC & NATURAL » is a dubious distinction for fertilizers. 

It paints a false picture of what fertilizers really are by making an ARTIFICIAL DISTINCTION between the product & its source. 

Besides, from the point-of-view of the turfgrass plant, neither « ORGANIC » nor conventional sources of nitrogen are differentiated.

« ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT » Will Benson’s preference for NATURE SAFE ORGANIC FERTILIZER, which contain common blood meal, bone meal, feather meal, & meat meal, is an UNNECESSARY & NEEDLESSLY EXPENSIVE CHOICE    this demonstrates Benson’s poor knowledge of fertilizers.

Background Information

THE STORY OF MILORGANITE   

According to golf ( dot ) com, the digital edition of Golf Magazine, the scarcity of « ORGANIC » golf courses means that « ORGANIC » inputs are not in high demand, so they’re difficult to get a hold of. 

This is RIDICULOUS & WRONG    & this demonstrates golf ( dot ) com’s poor knowledge of fertilizers. 

Has golf ( dot ) com ever heard of Milorganite ?!?! 

Golf ( dot ) com must realize that this « ORGANIC » fertilizer has been used by the golf industry for almost 100 years ! 

Since 1925, the granular « ORGANIC » fertilizer Milorganite has been derived from the biosolids left over from the Jones Island Wastewater Treatment Plant, in the city of Milwaukee. 

It was the FIRST time in the history of sanitation that a product had been produced from sewage. 

Milorganite was actually developed out of necessity to clean up the water system of the city of Milwaukee.

Until the early part of the Twentieth Century, Milwaukee dumped its entire sewage into nearby rivers. 

Using this sewage to create Milorganite was a necessity in order to protect human health, fresh drinking water, & recreational areas. 

In Chicago, Milorganite was FIRST officially introduced to the golf course maintenance industry in 1927    the Milwaukee Sewerage Commission presented its new granular organic fertilizer at the International Golf Show. 

Apparently, it had already been used on several golf courses during the previous years, with very satisfactory results. 

Its great selling feature in 1927 was that it did not burn turf. 

In 1927, Milorganite was described to turf managers in the following way   

[ MILORGANITE ] is a granular & porous organic matter  [ … ]

It carries approximately 5½ per cent nitrogen ( 6½ per cent ammonia ), about 2½ per cent phosphoric acid, & a little less than ½ per cent potash. 

The end product is said to be slightly acid, testing about pH 4.4.  [ … ] 

This acidity  [ … ]  is not objectionable in growing such turf grasses as the bents & fescues. 

In 1927, the early use of Milorganite appears to have been used with fertilizer-fungicide combinations for the control of « BROWN-PATCH » diseases on golf course putting greens. 

Mercury-based fungicides were concocted with Milorganite, which seemed to reduce the risk of injuring turf    a notorious problem of the mercuries. 

During 1927, 23,555 US tons of Milorganite were sold, mostly in bulk. 

By the mid-1930s, Milorganite was being packaged in 25, 50, & whopping 100-pound bags.  ( Wow ! There were no forklifts in those days. )

The name Milorganite had been chosen through contest held in 1925    the contest winner had created a loose anagram of « MILWAUKEE ORGANIC NITROGEN ». 

Since 1925, over 4,000,000 metric tons of Milorganite have been sold. 

As of 2018, Milwaukee has produced 45,000 to 49,000 tons of Milorganite per year. 

The sale of Milorganite does not generate enough money to cover the manufacturing costs, but the environmental benefits are considered a legitimate off-setting consideration. 

Everyone needs to INVALIDATE this ATTACK by « ACTIVIST-PUBLISHERS » at golf ( dot ) com, which are ill-conceived, vague, & / or treacherous criticisms the golf industry & its fertilizer use.

Everyone should stop listening to golf ( dot ) com !

MORE FAILED EXPERIMENTATION AT THE FAKE-ORGANIC LAURELWOOD GOLF COURSE    

After losing the money and clearance to use his USUAL FERTILIZERS,  [ ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT ]  Will Benson SWITCHED TO AN ORGANIC FERTILIZER for the fairways. 

SWITCHED TO AN ORGANIC FERTILIZER ?!?!    ON ITS FAIRWAYS, LAURELWOOD SWITCHED FROM SAFE, EFFECTIVE, & ECONOMICAL SYNTHETIC NUTRIENTS TO STAGGERINGLY MORE EXPENSIVE & UNNECESSARY ORGANIC FERTILIZERS

[ … ] 

The city  [ OF EUGENE, OREGON ]  also had SOME THINGS TO SAY ABOUT FERTILIZER USE, guided by those same NEIGHBORS. 

SOME THINGS TO SAY ABOUT FERTILIZER USE ?!?!    EUGENE’S FERTILIZER-HATING EXTREMISTS DEMANDED THE RECKLESS & ARBITRARY IMPOSITION OF PROHIBITION AGAINST SYNTHETIC NUTRIENTS AT LAURELWOOD

Up to that point, [ ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT ]  Benson had been using a STANDARD INPUT PROGRAM, but he had to deal with a BRAND-NEW, VERY AGGRESSIVE PLAN . 

BRAND-NEW, VERY AGGRESSIVE PLAN ?!?!    BY ADOPTING FALSE FERTILIZER DOCTRINES ( SEE BELOW ), SAFE, EFFECTIVE, & ECONOMICAL SYNTHETIC NUTRIENTS BECAME PROHIBITED AT LAURELWOOD, & WERE REPLACED BY ORGANIC & NATURAL FERTILIZER ALTERNATIVES THAT WERE UNSAFE, INEFFECTIVE, & / OR STUNNINGLY EXPENSIVE 

Benson was SEVERELY RESTRICTED  [ I.E. PROHIBITED ]  not just in what products he could use, but in how much he could afford. 

When the budget was cut, his focus initially was in keeping up his equipment and bringing along the INPUT PROGRAM where he could.

According to  [ ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT ]  Benson   

I kind of had to learn to find a DIFFERENT WAY to go about things.

The plan, it just went on and on. 

Then the two hit at the same time, then you’re really screwed.

You’re attempting to learn a WHOLE NEW WAY OF CARING FOR THE TURFGRASS without just a regular routine. 

It’s a whole re-education process. 

[ ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT ]  Benson’s been using a  [ SYNTHETIC ]  BIO-STIMULANT for greens, with  [ SYNTHETIC ]  METHYLENE UREA and a few additives he’s developed  ―  with ingredients derived from FISH, KELP, or MOLASSES. 

WHOLE NEW WAY OF CARING FOR THE TURFGRASS ?!?!   

METHYLENE UREA IS ACTUALLY A SYNTHETIC SLOW-RELEASE NITROGEN FERTILIZER, MOST LIKELY NATURE SAFE 18-0-4 GREENS FERTILIZER

MOLASSES HAS ABSOLUTELY NO REDEEMABLE NUTRIENT BENEFIT OR ENVIRONMENTAL VALUE ( SEE NEXT SEGMENT )  

Background Information

FALSE FERTILIZER DOCTRINES   

The golf industry’s correct & disciplined main-stream superintendents are being DUPED by « ACTIVIST-EXTREMISTS » who operate LOATHSOME trade associations, such as        Golf Course Superintendents Association of America ( GCSAA )      National Golf Foundation ( NGF )      PACE Turf Information Service      United States Golf Association ( USGA ). 

In essence, these « EXTREMIST-TRADE-ASSOCIATIONS » are infested by left-wing « FERTILIZER-HATING-ACTIVISTS » who conspire to ARBITRARILY IMPOSE « FERTILIZER NUTRIENT REDUCTION » & « ORGANIC & NATURAL FERTILIZER USE » in the golf industry.

These associations may, perhaps unwittingly, obliterate all golf facilities with their FALSE DOCTRINES.

An example of FALSE & MISLEADING FERTILIZER DOCTRINE, PACE Turf Information Service has been attempting to recommend « ORGANIC & NATURAL FERTILIZERS » like MOLASSES  ―  

MOLASSES has actually been used for decades in agriculture for a variety of purposes, including as a nutrient ( it contains sulfur, potash and trace minerals ) and as a « STICKER » that helps pesticides adhere to leaf surfaces.
[ ?!?!?!?! ] 

But MOLASSES is also frequently touted as having the ability to control thatch on golf course turf.  [ ?!?!?!?! ] 

Some of these trade associations have also attempted to impose another FALSE & ARBITRARY DOCTRINE, « GO BROWN » anti-cosmetic golf course maintenance, based on the false assumption that brown turf requires fewer inputs, saves money, is better for the environment, & plays better.  [ ?!?!?!?! ] 

Why have these LOATHSOME trade associations self-designated themselves as critics against correct & disciplined main-stream golf course superintendents & their fertilizer management practices ?!?! 

These trade associations, & their FALSE & MISLEADING DOCTRINES, will quickly doom the golf industry’s main-stream superintendents, who will become unable to manage their facilities without essential, YES ESSENTIAL, fertilizer nutrients. 

Golf facilities that adopt « FERTILIZER NUTRIENT REDUCTION » & « ORGANIC & NATURAL FERTILIZER USE » tend to become victims of RECEIVERSHIP & BANKRUPTCY, & / or become UNPLAYABLE GARBAGE DUMPS THAT LOOK DEAD.

Main-stream golf course superintendents ( & turf managers ) must OPPOSE these LOATHSOME trade associations. 

The « ACTIVIST-EXTREMISTS » who operate these associations have absolutely NO expertise regarding the assessment of essential fertilizer nutrients. 

Moreover, these activists are spreading FALSE & MISLEADING DOCTRINES against the use of essential fertilizer nutrients, contradicting decades of research, & proving that they have absolutely NO expertise regarding soil science & or essential nutrient management. 

Conventional fertilizers used by the golf industry are SAFE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT. 

Golf course superintendents ( & other turf managers ) must STOP those LOATHSOME trade associations that attempt to impose « FERTILIZER NUTRIENT REDUCTION » & « ORGANIC & NATURAL FERTILIZER USE ».

SELF-IMPOSING PROHIBITION AT LAURELWOOD   

The city of Eugene, Oregon, has been COERCED, INTIMIDATED, & TERRЖRIZED by local bee-­keeper-fanatжcs & activist-extremists to SELF-IMPOSE PROHIBITION against conventional pest control products, such as neonicoti­noids, that were used to control damaging insects on downtown flowers. 

Predictably, Eugene’s city officials also demanded that the contracted « ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT » of the municipally-owned LAURELWOOD Golf Course, Will Benson, to also SELF-IMPOSE PROHIBITION against conventional pest control products.

City officials failed to realize that, overall, the risk assessment of conventional pest control products indicates that they are scientifically-safe, &, when used correctly, will NOT cause harm to human health & the environment. 

EUGENE IS GOVERNED BY HYPOCRITES, LIARS, & FRAUDS.

& No Environmental Value

MORE FAILED EXPERIMENTATION AT THE FAKE-ORGANIC LAURELWOOD GOLF COURSE    

LAURELWOOD also takes great care to ensure the TREATMENTS to the course are  [ UNDEFINABLY ]  ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY.

They use a MOLASSES MIXTURE  [ I.E. BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES ?!?! ]  on the greens, and treat the fairway with an ALL-NATURAL FERTILIZER. 

The fertilizer is MORE EXPENSIVE than the typical golf course fertilizer chemical, but much more EARTH-FRIENDLY. 

Background Information

BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES   

According to information posted on the Golf Oregon web-site   

[ LAURELWOOD’S ]  course maintenance is 99 per cent organic  [ ?!?! ] ; they do not use any fertilizers or pesticides  [ FALSE ! ] , they make their own compost on site  [ SO WHAT ?!?! ] , and they use MOLASSES on the greens  [ SO WHAT ?!?! ] .

LAURELWOOD’s claim of MOLASSES does NOT mean it is « ORGANIC ».

This product has absolutely NO redeemable nutrient benefit or environmental value.   

The allegations made by the manufacturer have absolutely NO basis in science or fact. 

The use of this disgusting product cannot possibly represent any validation of LAURELWOOD being somehow ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY or EARTH-FRIENDLY.

Blackstrap Molasses is the by-product of sugar refining that contains all the nutrients from the raw sugarcane plant.  Of the varieties of molasses,  Blackstrap Molasses is richest in sources of sugars, carbon, enzymes, B-vitamins, and trace elements. 

Blackstrap Molasses is a carbohydrate energy source that feeds soil micro-organisms   [ ?!?! ]  and increases microbial activity  [ ?!?! ] .  With continued applications, Blackstrap Molasses encourages a soil environment that helps reduce thatch   [ ?!?! ] . 

Directions for Use    Greens, Tees and Fine Turf    Apply 3.0 – 6.0 oz of Blackstrap Molasses with 1.5 – 2 gallons of water per 1,000 sq ft ( 1.0 – 2.0 gallons of Blackstrap Molasses with 66 – 88 gallons of water per acre ) every 10 to 14 days throughout the growing season.  For heavy thatch areas, use the higher rate at weekly applications. 

Fairways, Roughs, Sports Turf and Lawns   Apply 1.0 – 2.0 gallons of Blackstrap Molasses with 44 – 88 gallons of water per acre ( 3.0 – 6.0 oz of Blackstrap Molasses with 1.5 – 2.0 gallons of water per 1,000 sq ft ) every 2 weeks during stress periods. 

Aerification    Apply 3.0 – 6.0 oz of Blackstrap Molasses with 1.5 – 2.0 gallons of water per 1,000 sq ft ( 1.0 – 2.0 gallons of Blackstrap Molasses with 66 – 88 gallons of water per acre ) 7 days before and again 7 days after aerification.

An example of a FALSE & MISLEADING FERTILIZER DOCTRINE, PACE Turf Information Service has been attempting to recommend « ORGANIC & NATURAL FERTILIZERS » like MOLASSES 

MOLASSES has actually been used for decades in agriculture for a variety of purposes, including as a nutrient ( it contains sulfur, potash and trace minerals ) and as a « STICKER » that helps pesticides adhere to leaf surfaces.  [ ?!?!?!?! ] 

But MOLASSES is also frequently touted as having the ability to control thatch on golf course turf.  [ ?!?!?!?! ]

Compost Tea, Will Never Control

Harmful Diseases That Damage Turf

MORE FAILED EXPERIMENTATION AT THE FAKE-ORGANIC LAURELWOOD GOLF COURSE    

[ ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT ]  Benson went headlong into TRYING-OUT  [ BY TRIAL-&-ERROR ]  NEW PROGRAMS  ―  mostly  [ NEEDLESSLY EXPENSIVE ]  ORGANIC with COMPOST TEA to match the city’s RESTRICTIONS  [ I.E. PROHIBITIONS ]  ―  until he found some things that WORKED  [ ?!?! ] . 

TRYING-OUT NEW PROGRAMS WITH COMPOST TEA TO MATCH THE EUGENE’S RESTRICTIONS ?!?!    COMPOST TEA CONCOCTIONS DO NOT WORK    COMPOST TEA CONCOCTIONS ARE ILLEGAL & MEDIEVAL & INEFFECTIVE 

It worked better AT SOME TIMES than others.  [ I.E. ORGANIC PRODUCTS WERE MOST OFTEN INEFFECTVE ]

When it came to the greens, he TESTED  [ WITH AMATEURISH EXPERIMENTATION BY TRIAL-&-ERROR ]  as much as he could. 

But much of the time, it was a live  [ AMATEURISH & NON-SCIENTIFIC ]  EXPERIMENT.

TESTING AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE ?!?!    LAURELWOOD’S AMATEURISH EXPERIMENTATION BY TRIAL-&-ERROR MEANT USING ILLEGAL, MEDIEVAL, & / OR INEFFECTIVE PESTICIDE & NUTRIENT ALTERNATIVES    LAURELWOOD’S EXPERIMENTATION IS A HUGE EXPENSIVE & DEADLY FAILURE 

Background Information

COMPOST TEA AT LAURELWOOD   

At LAURELWOOD Golf Course, ILLEGAL & MEDIEVAL & INEFFECTIVE alternatives WILL NEVER control harmful diseases that damage turf. 

These alternatives FAIL to be government-approved, FAIL to be federally-legal, FAIL to be scientifically-safe, & FAIL to be anything other than potentially harmful. 

Their use may represent a DANGER to human health & the environment. 

For example, COMPOST TEA is a HOME-MADE ILLEGAL CONCOCTION used by LAURELWOOD that contains extracts of fermented water leached from arbitrary-selections of composted substances. 

I Haven’t Seen Anything One Way
Or Another With Compost Tea

« ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT » Jeff Carlson, from the INFAMOUS Vineyard Golf Club, Massachusetts, USA, has been very clear about the fact that COMPOST TEA CONCOCTIONS DO NOT WORK   

I wanted to mention COMPOST TEA here in a second year of doing an evaluation with it. 

The reason I mentioned it is because everybody asked me about whether I’m using COMPOST TEA or not. 

And including the COMPOST TEA people, obviously, and I used it last year and I want to use it again, we’re using it on practice greens. 

I HAVEN’T SEEN ANYTHING ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. 

[ I.E. COMPOST TEA CONCOCTIONS DO NOT WORK ]

But I have some restrictions about how they  [ THE OWNERS ]  want me to use it. 

They do not want me to use any nitrogen with it, either « ORGANIC » or synthetic, but « ORGANIC », they don’t want any products added to it except their COMPOST TEA. 

And as I understand it, the COMPOST TEA people feel that this is a SILVER BULLET  [ ?!?! ]  that is just COMPOST TEA WILL DO EVERYTHING you need to have done  [ ?!?! ] , as they’ve explained it to me. 

I think they’re a product that could be part of a program. 

But I think it has to be part of using some other things cultural practices, nitrogen, the COMPOST TEA plots that I did last year, next to the products that I put eco garden, stuff like that were way down in their fertility, clipping yield was down. 

And it just seemed to me like they needed to be fed. 

They had MORE DOLLAR SPOT.  [ !!!! ]

The dollar spot was a little more pitted. 

I’m going to do it again this year. 

That’s what I saw from last year so that that’s my own life. 

I just wish they would kind of get off of that and just have it be part of a program. 

I think it would be more valuable. 

COMPOST TEA CONCOCTIONS DO NOT WORK ! 

Moreover, COMPOST TEA is a home-made pest control CONCOCTION that VIOLATES FEDERAL LAW ! 

When someone recommends or sells COMPOST TEA with the claim that it controls pests, it technically becomes a pest control product. 

COMPOST TEA CONCOCTIONS ARE ILLEGAL !

It is a VIOLATION OF FEDERAL LAW to recommend or use COMPOST TEA for controlling pests since it is NOT registered
under federal law.

Laurelwood Golf Course

Not Innovative 

Laurelwood Must Do Everything In A

Different Way By Trying New Things

Because It Has No Choice About

Using Medieval & Ineffective Inputs

That Are Definitely Not Innovations

AT THE FAKE-ORGANIC LAURELWOOD GOLF COURSE    

According to  [ ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT ]  Will Benson   

We’ve done better with the course. 

We’ve started bringing it back. 

The pressure, the money’s been easing up in the last few years.

We’re trying to DO EVERYTHING IN A DIFFERENT WAY now, because we really can’t do things the way we used to. 

DOING EVERYTHING IN A DIFFERENT WAY ?!?!    THIS MEANS USING MEDIEVAL & INEFFECTIVE PESTICIDE & NUTRIENT ALTERNATIVES BECAUSE OF GOLF-HATING EXTREMIST-NEIGHBORS WHO CONTINUE TO TERRЖRIZE THE GOLF COURSE

He’s not looking at huge changes, but he’s open to TRYING NEW THINGS now, after having NO CHOICE a few years ago. 

TRYING NEW THINGS ?!?!    THIS INVOLVES USING MEDIEVAL & INEFFECTIVE PESTICIDE & NUTRIENT ALTERNATIVES

NO CHOICE ?!?!    LAURELWOOD HAS NO CHOICE BECAUSE OF GOLF-HATING EXTREMIST-NEIGHBORS

This year  [ 2021 ] , he plans to do more soil testing and really take a look at how the turf has changed in the past three years    and he keeps an eye on NEW INPUTS AND INNOVATIONS to see if they match his goals for the course.

NEW INPUTS & INNOVATIONS ?!?!    THIS INVOLVES USING MEDIEVAL & INEFFECTIVE PESTICIDE & NUTRIENT ALTERNATIVES   THESE ARE NOT INNOVATIONS

According to  [ ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT ]  Benson   

I think we’re going to spend most of our time TRYING TO QUANTIFY WHAT WORKS, doing some more soil tests this year. 

We’re doing those and biological soil tests to inspect and keep track of what’s happening. 

It’s been a three-year EXPERIMENT, and at this point, I think we’ve kind of got it NAILED DOWN, what we do. 

GETTING IT NAILED DOWN ?!?!    LAURELWOOD’S TRYING TO QUANTIFY WHAT WORKS HAS BEEN NAILED DOWN AFTER THREE YEARS OF AMATEURISH & NON-SCIENTIFIC TRIAL-&-ERROR EXPERIMENTATION BY AN ACTIVIST-SUPERINTENDENT WHO KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT TESTING

Background Information

ORGANIC DISASTER AT LAURELWOOD   

There is NO industry & NO regulatory oversight concerning any of LAURELWOOD’s AMATEURISH & NON-SCIENTIFIC TRIAL-&-ERROR EXPERIMENTATION by officials who know NOTHING about testing or golf course maintenance. 

Without oversight, LAURELWOOD’s officials can say whatever they want, & they can LIE with impunity, especially about their flagrant use of pesticides, or about any LARGE-SCALE-DEATH caused by their EXPERIMENTATION. 

Without oversight, they can conveniently ignore the DISASTER at LAURELWOOD resulting in LARGE-SCALE-DEATH because of AMATEURISH  EXPERIMENTATION that has hopelessly relied upon TRIAL-&-ERROR with illegal & medieval & / or ineffective nutrient & pesticide alternatives. 

LAURELWOOD’S EXPERIMENTATION HAS BEEN A HUGE EXPENSIVE & DEADLY FAILURE. 

According to a LAURELWOOD official    « I’VE BEEN EXPERIMENTING PRETTY HEAVILY WE STARTED KILLING STUFF WE GOT PRETTY GOOD AT KILLING STUFF » .    

Using LAURELWOOD as an example of golf course maintenance of any kind represents a TERRIBLE TEMPLATE for superintendents. 

Background Information

CORRECT MAINTENANCE PRACTICES   

ALL superintendents must MEET the expectations of the paying customers by following published golf maintenance protocols & performance standards that are expected by paying-customers. 

So far, the golf industry has been ridiculously inconsistent in defining « HIGH-QUALITY PLAYING CONDITIONS & AESTHETICS ». 

If it does not do so, outsiders, like « ACTIVIST-SCIENTISTS », will step in & design these standards & protocols for the industry. 

The PRIME golf maintenance protocols must be    provide paying-golfers with HIGH-QUALITY PLAYING CONDITIONS & AESTHETICS, at a minimum, on all putting greens. 

These superintendents must not abandon their SCIENCE-BASED & TIME-TESTED & CORRECT maintenance practices in favour of « ORGANIC » & « PESTICIDE-FREE » & « IPM » & other MEDIEVAL & INEFFECTIVE doctrines.

Background Information

Positive Waves

Pesticides & Nutrients Used For
Golf Course Maintenance Are Good
For Human Health & The Environment

There are POSITIVE WAVES for communities with well-maintained HEALTHY GREEN-SPACES. 

The main-stream superintendent can RESPONSIBLY USE PESTICIDES & NUTRIENTS to maintain HEALTHY GREEN-SPACES like golf courses. 

HEALTHY GREEN-SPACES like golf courses provide many ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS that improve HUMAN HEALTH ! 

The modern golf industry can be described as « THE PLANET’S GREAT CONSERVATIONIST » that satisfies paying customers who want golf courses with HIGH-QUALITY PLAYING CONDITIONS & AESTHETICS ACHIEVED BY THICKER, GREENER, PEST-FREE, & MANICURED TURF. 

For generations, the modern golf industry has been maintaining & conserving one of the world’s largest ground cover vegetation, & has been contributing extensively to the protection of CRITICAL GREEN-SPACES. 

When pesticides & nutrients are used properly, there are NO harmful irreversible effects to human health & the environment.

In fact, they are both GOOD & BENEFICIAL for HEALTHY TURFGRASS, & for human health & the environment ! 

According to the GCSAA Board of Directors’ Position Statement entitled « GCSAA BOARD APPROVED 2021-2022 PRIORITY ISSUES AGENDA » which has been published by Golf Course Superintendents Association of America concerning the ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS WITH HEALTHY TURFGRASS   

There are many other ENVIRONMENT BENEFITS TO HEALTHY TURFGRASS including  •  the capture of run-off pollutants in storm-water  •  temperature buffer    erosion control  •  serving as a protective barrier to ground-water. 

In addition, many entities both public and private rely on HEALTHY GREEN-SPACES like golf courses as a key component in maintaining financial revenues. 

[ … ] 

The RESPONSIBLE USE OF PESTICIDES is essential to maintaining HEALTHY TURFGRASS. 

HEALTHY TURFGRASS allows communities to enjoy many BENEFITS including      creation of critical GREEN-SPACES    providing wildlife habitat    ensuring recreational opportunities. 

Successful main-stream superintendents will RESPONSIBLY, SAFELY, & EFFECTIVELY USE OF PESTICIDES & NUTRIENTS by following the PROTOCOLS & PERFORMANCE STANDARDS for SCIENCE-BASED & TIME-TESTED & CORRECT maintenance practices. 

PESTICIDES & NUTRIENTS used for turf maintenance are GOOD for human health & the environment !
