Dairy Creek Golf Course in San Luis Obispo, California is using sheep to help landscape the rough on their golf course. Holistic Management Certified Educator Rob Rutherford has worked with the golf course management to develop this pilot project which has promising results of reduced costs for the golf course and improved soils and plant community in the rough. The added benefit is the social enjoyment that the golfers get as they watch the sheep and lambs and learn about the environment around the golf course.
