Golf Superintendents Must Defend Their Industry, Whatever The Cost May Be.  The Golf Industry’s Superintendents Must Recognize That They Are On A Collision Course With The Looming Shipwreck Of Golf-Hating & Anti-Pesticide Terrжrism. Regardless Of Their Municipal Or Provincial Pesticide Ban Exception Statuses, Superintendents Face Some Huge Challenges Because Of Their High Degree Of Vulnerability Concerning Several Public Affairs Issues.

NO Golf Exception Status

The golf industry must officially recognize that it is on a collision course with the attacks of golf-hating / anti-pesticide organizations, jurisdictions, and institutions that are demanding a revocation of the golf industry’s pesticide ban exception status.

These organizations, jurisdictions, and institutions are filled with golf-hating, anti-pesticide, and science-hating fanatжcs; and others, like Golf Canada and IPM Council, have become « useful idiots » that naively support these fanatжcs.

The golf industry must plan for the inevitable and total revocation of its exception status in most jurisdictions across Canada.

This catastrophe is becoming increasingly probable on a large scale.

The end is near.

Decades ago, attacks against the golf industry began with the needless, senseless, & malicious prohibitions against DDT insecticide and mercury fungicides.

Since the mid-2000s, these organizations, jurisdictions, and institutions ( which are listed below ) have set their sights on the annihilation of the golf industry by demanding a revocation of its pesticide ban exception status, mindless enviro-lunatжc attacks, and ⁄ or have conspired to impose reckless and arbitrary prohibition against conventional pest control products.

There is NO hopeful future for anyone in the golf industry.

Invalidation The Golf Industry’s Pesticide Ban
Exception Status By Activist-Superintendents

Summary

Golf course superintendents are not paid to be activists  ―  universally, these superintendent are professionals who are paid to take care of golf courses  ―  they manage the budgets, man-power, materials, and schedules needed to properly maintain high-quality playing conditions and aesthetics for paying golfers.  Superintendents constantly monitor the health of turfgrasses through careful observation, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases, insects, weeds, and abiotic disorders.  Their skilled management of turfgrass pests is accomplished by the proper use of conventional pest control products.  Unfortunately, some golf facilities are infested with « activist-superintendents », and even « activist-general-managers ».  These types of activists represent the greatest threats to the golf industry today. After decades of benefiting from the golf industry’s pesticide ban exception status, activist-superintendents have ridiculously decided to self-impose their own pesticide bans.  Observers are aghast that activist-superintendents are invalidating the pesticide ban exception status that allowed the golf industry to avoid being subjected to anti-pesticide prohibition for a generation, thanks to the unbelievable lobbying by Mr William H Gathercole in the 1990s.  These activists simply do not deserve to work in the golf industry that they betray.  Golf course superintendents ( and general-managers ) are not paid to be activists  ―  they are paid to satisfy paying golfers with high-quality playing conditions and aesthetics.

Golf Courses Are Often As Unnaturally

  –  Jake Tapper

Summary

ABC News article written by enviro-lunatжc journalist Jake Tapper, who is currently a President-Trump-hating anchor at CNN.  This article used comments from Mark Massara, director of the rabid Sierra Club’s « California Coastal Campaign ».  Golf is described as « a sport that largely caters to the elite ».  The Golf Course Superintendents Association of America ( GCSAA ) is also portrayed as « a potent political force along with big tobacco and big agriculture ».  Finally, « golf courses are often also as unnaturally pumped-up as a steroid-addled East–German shot-putter ».  Read this article.  It is amusing, deceitful, and frightening, all at the same time.

Summary

a.k.a. Canadian Health and Environment Education and Research Foundation ( CHEER ).  CAPE is gloating, treacherous, and repugnant  ―  an environmental-terrжrist and anti-pesticide organization that has been a principal architect in the conspiracy to prohibit against pest control products used in the urban landscape.  Its anti-pesticide acts of subversion have extensively damaged the professional lawn care industry.  CAPE is a mere fund-raising, profit-seeking, and lobbying organization, and it is NOT a science, NOT a research, and NOT a health organization.  The vast majority of CAPE members are NOT even physicians.  In fact, CAPE represents an insignificantly small number of doctors.  CAPE merely represents less than 4 per cent of all doctors in Canada.  CAPE does NOT operate as a physicians’ organization ― it is operated by a handful of non-expert fund-raisers who are paid-for-profit as subversive illegal lobbyists.  CAPE also acts as a public affairs shield for Green Party of Canada, Canadian Cancer Society, and other environmental-terrжrist organizations.

The Game Of Golf Will Survive If Only Organic
Maintenance Practices Are Employed
 [ ?!?! ]

Summary

The golf industry MUST NOT embrace the theories and doctrines of Frank Rossi.  The game of golf WILL NOT survive if only organic pesticide-free maintenance practices are employed.  The golf industry MUST STOP validating Frank Rossi’s organic recommendations since they represents an imminent and lethal attack !  Overall, organic pesticide-free golf facilities are bogus, despite the mock-optimism of Rossi’s comments. Without the stunningly massive government funding that Rossi enjoys for his Bethpage Golf Course, organic pesticide-free golf facilities CANNOT possibly provide adequate turf and playing conditions.  Paying players will be forced to golf on #@!!% pest-infested garbage dumps !  Unfortunately, in all cases examined so far, organic pesticide-free maintenance leads to unbearable and destructive pest problems and disorders.  Organic pesticide-free golf facilities are NOT economically viable businesses.

Total National-Prohibition Imposed
Against Carbaryl, Iprodione, & Quintozene

Near-Total National-Prohibition
Imposed Against Chlorothalonil

Total National-Prohibition
Proposed Against Imidacloprid

Explanations

There is a conspiracy by Liberal government’s Health Canada to impose national prohibition against conventional golf course products that are desperately-needed by the golf industry.

Carbaryl ( Sevin )  –  Total national-prohibition imposed by Health Canada.  According to allegations by Health Canada, certain carbaryl products or uses pose risks of concern to human health & did not meet current standards for human health protection.

Golf Industry Jeopardized By Decision From Health Canada

Chlorothalonil ( Daconil )  –  Near-total national-prohibition imposed by Health Canada.  Health Canada alleges its chlorothalonil prohibition is based on its human health risk assessment.

Imidacloprid ( Neonicotinoids )  –  Total national-prohibition proposed by Health Canada.  Health Canada alleges that, under current conditions of use, the environmental risks for most products containing imidacloprid do not meet current safety standards.

Iprodione Turf Uses Cancelled

Goodbye Iprodione

Golf Industry Jeapordized By Decision From Health Canada

Quintozene ( PCNB )  –  Total national-prohibition imposed by Health Canada before liberals were elected to power in 2015.  According to allegations by Health Canada, products containing quintozene used on turfgrasses did pose an unacceptable risk to human health & the environment, &, consequently, did not have value since many other products could be used as alternatives to replace it for the control of snow mold diseases.

Summary

PEI’s provincial pesticide ban removed 240 products from use by consumers.  However, businesses operating in the professional lawn care industry have been provided with an exception status.  Additionally, 2,4-D herbicide is prohibited for use by either consumers or businesses on lawns, but it is allowed in the golf industry.

Quebec Wants To Screw Golf Courses

Summary

Quebec’s provincial pesticide ban was invalidated and defeated when a legal challenge was settled, and the provincial government officials were humiliated into admitting that 2,4-D DID NOT pose an unacceptable risk to human health or the environment.  Although Quebec prohibited products containing 2,4-D, it is a little-known fact that Quebec was never truly pesticide-free since it DID NOT ban all pesticides, and continued to permit several conventional products, especially those used by golf courses.  Nonetheless, the golf industry will be attacked NEXT, beginning with neonicotinoid insecticides.

Pest Control Products

Attacks against the golf industry

We are now living in The 9|11 Era of Fanatжcal Golf-Hating & Anti-Pesticide TERRЖRISM !

For over a decade, fanatжcs have attacked the golf industry by conspiring to prohibit against its conventional pest control products.

Course of action

The golf industry must STRONGLY ADOPT THE POSITION that conventional pest control products are scientifically-safe and will cause NO harm to players, workers, and the environment.

The golf industry must also ADOPT the policy that the ONLY course of action against prohibition is AGGRESSIVE CHALLENGES through actions like LITIGATION.

Court action will never permanently stop golf-hating fanatжcs, but WILL drain their resources while the golf industry seeks other courses of action.

The golf industry must ESTABLISH policies for expelling « activist-superintendents » from its trade associations who falsely-allege that the use of pest control products harm people and⁄or the environment.

NO Pesticide Ban Exception Status

Attacks against the golf industry

Since 1991, the golf industry throughout the nation had been provided with a pesticide ban exception status   ―   thankfully, Mr William H Gathercole crafted the original golf industry exception status in the town of Hudson, Quebec, which has been duplicated in virtually all jurisdictions throughout North America.

Now, the golf industry is being JEOPARDIZED by prohibitions against its desperately-needed conventional pest control products.

Course of action

To avoid its imminent demise, and the total loss of all of its conventional pest control products, the golf industry must immediately address all of the critical issues facing the golf industry.  ( See links below. )

The golf industry must PLAN for the inevitable and total revocation of its exception status in most jurisdictions across Canada.

This catastrophe is becoming INCREASINGLY PROBABLE on a large scale.

Government officials may consider imposing prohibition against the golf industry once they realize the fact that, according to a study in Manitoba, up to 6 per cent of ALL conventional pest control products are used for golf course maintenance.

Interestingly, golf facilities often employ THE VERY SAME conventional pest control products that are used to control invasive weeds and damaging insects on municipal and residential properties, which are currently prohibited in many jurisdictions.

Maintenance Protocols
& Performance Standards 

Attacks against the golf industry

Fanatжcal-activists falsely-promote their inferior green alternative pesticides   ―   it is IMPOSSIBLE to keep high-quality playing conditions & aesthetics by using such products.

Nonetheless, fanatжcal-activists are too often portrayed as great experts on golf course maintenance   ―   the golf industry is in lots of deep #@!!% trouble !

Course of action

The golf industry must DEVELOP and publish golf maintenance protocols and performance standards concerning the regular use of conventional pest control products and fertilizers, based upon REAL scientific research.

These protocols and performance standards must DISAVOW the use of inferior green alternative pesticides, the ineffective practices of Integrated Pest Management ( IPM ), and the bogus doctrines of fertilizer nutrient reduction.

The intensity of disease activity MAY be suppressed, but NOT controlled, with correct mowing practices.

One of the most important golf maintenance protocols is Turf Species Transition.

All golf facilities must be expected to transition their putting greens from annual bluegrass to creeping bentgrass.

Improved varieties of creeping bentgrass are more resistant to pests than annual bluegrass, an invasive grass species that is highly susceptible to pests and requires the use of more pest control products.

Annual bluegrass is also more susceptible to abiotic disorders, such as winter injury and summer stress.

Idiotic Trade Associations

Attacks against the golf industry

Is anybody addressing the critical issues facing the golf industry ?!?!

It becomes increasingly obvious that most of the golf industry’s trade associations have FAILED their members.

Future generations will ask the question   ―   why did their trade associations not act ?!?!

NO trade association has mounted an effective and comprehensive lobbying campaign from attacks against pest control products.

NONE have addressed ALL of the critical issues facing the golf industry. ( See links below. )

Sadly, NO ONE in these associations could even tell you WHO are the golf-hating fanatжcs, what are their organizations, and WHAT are their lobbying strategies against the golf industry.

Ask ANY elected official or administrative staff to name FIVE golf-hating fanatжcs   ―   in fact, they are likely to be unable to name even ONE.

The trade associations are CLUELESS BEYOND COMPREHENSION.

Course of action

The golf industry’s trade associations must CEASE publicly supporting the PROHIBITION against conventional pest control products used in the urban landscape.

These trade associations must STOP torpedoing the professional lawn care industry.

They must also STOP choosing anti-pesticide speakers for their conferences.

Trade associations MUST address ALL of the critical issues facing the golf industry. ( See links below. )

Lobbying Campaigns Defending The Industry

Attacks against the golf industry

Is there anybody in the golf industry who can stop the attacks from golf-hating fanatжcal-activists ?!?!

NO !

For the most part, lobbying campaigns by the trade associations is virtually NIL   ―   overall, they are NOT adequately defending the golf industry from attacks against pest control products.

Most have NOT addressed ANY of critical issues facing the golf industry.

There ARE some notable and occasional exceptions, such as Alberta Golf Industry Association, National Golf Course Owners Association ( NGCOA ), and Western Canada Turfgrass Association ( WCTA ), that have made serious attempts with their lobbying campaigns.

However, NO trade association has mounted an effective and comprehensive lobbying campaign against arbitrary prohibitions targeting pest control products.

NONE have addressed ALL of the critical issues facing the golf industry. ( See lins below. )

Furthermore, NO ONE in any trade associations has ANY professional expertise for lobbying against prohibitions.

The trade associations are CLUELESS BEYOND COMPREHENSION.

Course of action

The golf industry must CEASE its pointless and wasteful public relations campaigns to educate and to convince pesticide-hating left-wing government officials and activists.

These fanatжcs will NEVER reverse their attitudes against conventional pest control products.

Their false narratives, illegal activities, and destructive attacks against the golf industry must be rigorously challenged with debates and responses that are direct and honest.

The golf industry’s trade associations must defend the golf superintendents and their facilities.

They must strike back and destroy golf-hating enviro-organizations, like David Suzuki Foundation, by vigorously exploiting their many vulnerabilities.

They must destroy these organizations in public debate.

And, trade associations MUST address ALL of the critical issues facing the golf industry. ( See links below. )

Otherwise, the golf industry is in lots of deep #@!!% trouble !

Organic Pesticide-Free Golf Facilities

Attack against the golf industry

« Activist-superintendents » and « activist-general-managers » represent the GREATEST THREATS to the golf industry today.  After decades of benefiting from the golf industry’s pesticide ban exception status, activist-superintendents have ridiculously decided to self-impose their own pesticide bans and convert their golf courses to pseudo « organic ».  Observers are aghast that activist-superintendents are invalidating & attacking the pesticide ban exception status that allowed the golf industry to avoid being subjected to anti-pesticide prohibition for a generation, thanks to the unbelievable lobbying by Mr William H Gathercole in the 1990s.  These activists simply DO NOT deserve to work in the golf industry that they betray.  Golf course superintendents ( & general-managers ) are not paid to be « organic » activists  ―  they are paid to satisfy paying golfers with high-quality playing conditions & aesthetics.

Without conventional pest control products, « organic » golf courses become PEST-INFESTED & UNPLAYABLE GARBAGE DUMPS.  It is IMPOSSIBLE to keep high-quality playing conditions & aesthetics by using so-called « organic » green alternative pesticides and practices.  Alternative methods of pest control are INFERIOR, INEFFECTIVE, and CANNOT BE RELIED UPON to properly maintain ANY golf course.

Golf-hating fanatжcs, like David Suzuki, are falsely-alleging that « organic » has become a major trend in the golf industry.  There are approximately two thousand golf courses across Canada.  There are three, yes THREE, known so-called organic golf courses in Canada. Blackburn Meadows Golf Club, Brigadoon Golf Course, and Fiddler’s Green Golf Course.  ( See links below. )  Two of these « organic » golf facilities are now bankrupt, closed, and⁄or gone.  One facility may actually be lying.  Pesticide-free golf maintenance is IMPOSSIBLE, and can only lead to catastrophic playing conditions and business failures.  These types of courses often DO NOT have high-quality playing conditions & aesthetics, which are unacceptable for paying players.  There will be a lot of unhappy golfers, and bankrupt golf businesses, if the golf industry goes pesticide-free.

Course of action

The golf industry must ESTABLISH policies for expelling from its trade associations those superintendents and golf facilities that use inaccurate and mis-leading terms like « organic ».

Providing players with high-quality conditions and aesthetics CANNOT be successful with inferior green alternative pesticides and ineffective sustainable « organic » practices.

Additionally, the golf industry must VIGOROUSLY EMBARK on a massive public relations campaign to discredit « organic » pesticide-free maintenance practices, declaring them as DISMAL FAILURES.
