This October San Francisco city's publicly owned golf course, Harding Park, will host the world's biggest gold tournament, the World Golf Championship hosted by the Professional Golfers Association. Environmentalists believe that the sport is very destructive to local water supplies because of the vast amount of water and pesticides needed to maintain the courses. Chris Geiger, the man in charg of integrated pest management for the city of San Francisco, will explain what the city is doing while Shawnee Hoover of Beyond Pesticides in Washington DC will talk about the problems as well as how to create alternative organic golf courses.
