    DefaultWalking/Running on Golf Course

    Considering this:

    Running or walking on a golf course during the fringe/off season.

    Pesticide issues?

    Any recommendations?
    Snow shoes
    Dog foot protection from snow/ice

    If you are talking about a manicured course that is nice clean uniform grass, I would suspect lots of weed prevention and fertilizer. fertilizer at a minimum. I just plain stay away from anything put on the lawns if I can. We have agreements in the neighborhhod that we tell each other when fertilizer or weed killer has been put down. I don't let HK even walk on those lawns for the two week period following, assuming reasonable rainfall during that period. My son's dog has serious allergy problems from the fertilisers and i just don't want to find out about HK.

    I have a friend that is in charge of the grass on a golf course in our area & he says it's laced w/all kinds of nasty chemicals.

    I walk a golf course a lot and never worried about pesticides or fertilizer. I believe the course stops pesticides in the winter. And as for the fertilizer, well, what the course supplies pales in comparison to what Wesley supplies!

    The course is a municipal course. I have heard and from looking at the course condition, water/pesticide/fertilizer useage is low. I will call the course to find out some more.

    Gimme a minute. SO is the assistant sup. at the course here.

    ETA: Golf course in KC - no chemical program for wintertime. Grass is dormant. They don't use anything on it.

    No idea, but I take my dogs to our local Golf course nearly every morning.
