Organic Golf - The Cliffs


"Organic Golf"

Are you envisioning fields of Dandelions?
Bare soil greens?
Clouds of Locusts?

Well don't, instead I want you to imagine one of the largest Golf Communities in North/South Carolina and an on-site
laboratory affiliated with Clemson University to provide industry-leading turfgrass research in the area of ORGANIC golf course management.

Wow! I'm sure the hippies on Saltspring Island are impressed, as am I.

Check it out here.

Here's the buzz:

“We are excited about teaming up with Clemson University on a project that we expect will blaze trails in research and positively impact not only our communities but the business of golf course development and management. The Cliffs decided to undertake this project because it’s the right thing to do. ‘Going green’ is beneficial for all of us –as individuals and families, for our businesses, and ultimately, for our economy as a whole. It’s a better way of living, and that’s what we seek to provide here at The Cliffs: the best place to work, live, and play in America.”
Jim Anthony, President and Founder of The Cliffs Communities.

“In five years, I’d like this Center’s findings to prove that, with a team of highly-trained professionals, a golf course can be managed in a way that actually serves to enhance the environment. It’s our hope to share the knowledge that we uncover along the way to those who are interested in using these new techniques to improve their property management practices, whether they be golf courses, athletic fields, green spaces, or private lawns.”
Daniel Brazinski, Vice President of Golf Maintenance at The Cliffs Communities.
