Turfgrass Science is the use of grasses to enhance the environment. Turf is important from a functional standpoint as it reduces glare, noise, air pollution, heat buildup and visual pollution. It also provides recreational benefits to outdoor sporting events, such as golf, football, baseball and soccer, and is used to create aesthetically attractive surroundings for homes, buildings and cities. The Turfgrass Industry is growing exponentially, offering graduates more and more career opportunities. Primary positions include golf course superintendents and assistants, athletic field manager, grounds maintenance managers, lawn care operators, and sod producers.
