Times are tough all over and golf course managers aren’t afraid to try something to and save a few bucks. Such is the case at Kensington Golf Course in Canfield, Ohio. They have brought in a herd of goats to use as an “all natural maintenance crew.” The goats wander the course eating all the foliage they can. It saves the course from having to cut it down with weed whackers. The goats don’t graze on the fairways or greens only on the naturalized area of the course.
It’s a good deal for both the goats and the course. The players like it too. It is reminiscent of the old days when sheep would roam the links of Scotland, grazing to their hearts content; long before gas powered mowers did their job.
