Is anti-golf activism counter productive?

I'm not sure the point of this spy video. If there is concern about the chemicals sprayed at a golf course then perhaps you should speak to the superintendent, not just shoot a video, tag it as "pollution" and put it on You Tube.

Try talking to the superintendent, ask them what they are spraying and for what.

You'll notice the color of the spray is blue/green, this is a liquid spray colorant. According to Farmura Environmental, a manufacturer of a product like the one being used:

"Spray overlap alone can add 25% - 33% to a golf courses chemical bill so it's not hard to see why it's worth investing in a liquid spray colorant. You can mix the temporary blue dye with herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, grass growth retardants and liquid fertilizers and see exactly where you have sprayed to ensure accurate applications."

So it appears this Spy Video demonstrates the opposite of "pollution", it shows how to properly apply chemicals in a responsible fashion. Also notice the precision taken by the operator who stays on the fairway, he/she does not just blanket spray the whole course, just the infected areas.
