Penn State Students Learn About Turf Management Practices in Italy

Ten undergraduate students, faculty, and staff from Penn State’s turfgrass program traveled to Italy during the second week of May as part of TURF 499 “Turfgrass Management Practices in Italy,” an international study course. The 3-credit course involved weekly lectures during the 2018 spring semester on golf course management practices and attitudes towards golf in Europe. The course culminated in an 8-day trip to visit several golf courses in different regions of Italy. Italy was of particular interest because we wanted students to observe how golf course managers and owners are adapting to a recent ban on synthetic pesticides for golf course turf.
