Nonsense. The difference between green and greener is relative and subjective. I laughed uproariously when Justin Timberlake, standing on a championship golf course in Phoenix, claimed the course was green. There's nothing green about growing grass in the desert except for the color. Waterings are daily, sometimes multiple times during the the day on the greens, in order to keep the course playable. Fertilizers, the mowers...all energy intensive, even if the fertilizer is compost derived and even if the mowers are solar. You can't discount the costs of the initial manufacturing. I like golf, but there's nothing green about a course.
