The article presents the author's views on environmental responsibility and reduction of carbon footprints in golf course management.

To reduce the carbon footprint of equipment, a list of maintenance measures such as periodic inspections, monitoring of oil levels, tire pressure, coolant levels and lubrication is presented.
