In coordination with the other superintendent associations throughout New England, the “Best Management Practices for Vermont Golf Courses” guide was published in July, 2020. As of September, 2020, Vermont remains the only state in New England to complete their BMP program.
The document was developed using the latest science-based information and sources. Using BMP guidelines, superintendents will have ready access to the most recent scientific information that can be used to inform their management activities.

Once you have reviewed the Vermont BMP guide, you can start to work on your facility BMP. The GCSAA has set up a guide for this process. You can find this guide by clicking here.
