Length = 1 Semester

Golf courses and landscapes are two aspects of the agriculture industry that have a lot in common.  There is money to be earned in the Landscape, Nursery, and Turf segments of the horticulture industry.  This class will explore landscape design from the design on the paper to putting the plants in the ground as well as implementing these concepts on a 9 hole golf course.  Be ready, because this class will give you the “real world” that will lead you to becoming a landscape architect.  Lab activities include: designing a 9 hole golf course, researching aspects of a country club (clubhouse, irrigation systems, turf grasses, etc.), measuring a landscape, drawing landscape plans to scale, install a landscape, identify landscape plants, and enjoying the great outdoors by serving at the Sauk Prairie High School’s official landscapers.
