Running or walking on a golf course during the fringe/off season.
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.Originally Posted by Tucker
Hershey Kisses, In charge of getting Ed out to the dog park so that he gets some exercise.
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.Originally Posted by Endofile
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.
