Article - Biodiverse roughs

A common problem on golf courses is that players spend too much time looking for lost balls in the rough. That is why more open and playable roughs are an important goal of the new project ‘From dense swards to biodiverse roughs’, which started in 2017. An equally important goal is to investigate how golf courses, urban parks and set-aside land can be managed in order to contribute to enhanced diversity of plants and pollinators.
