Pine Straw has been used successfully at golf courses throughout the United States and Canada.  The advantages of using pine straw include: 

1) Ability to Quickly Locate Ball
 
Errant golf ball that are hit into the pine straw are easily located, reducing the time spent searching for lost balls.

 2) Playability
The consistency of the pine straw, unlike wood chips, allows most golfers an opportunity to get their ball back into play, without severe penalty. 

 3) Health of the Trees
The pine straw provides additional nutrients and promotes healthy tree growth.

 4) Vegetation Growth
The use of pine straw will reduce maintenance costs as it reduces the amount of vegetation re-growth.  It reduces the use of weed control chemicals and protects the tree trunks from weed trimmers.

 5) Aesthetically Pleasing
The pine straw will add an attractive finishing touch to your golf course.
