Vetiver for Golf Course landscaping

I found this interesting site: http://www.domainedebelombre.mu/en/golf_du_chateau_gallery.aspx from the Golf Du Chateau course in Mauritius. The course has been partially landscaped and protected using vetiver grass. The lakes on the course look particularly clean – I suspect that the vetiver planted on the upstream drainage areas have removed most of the agricultural chemicals used on the course.


Tough to lose a golf ball in vetiver!!


Vetiver could be used for the same purposes for lanscaping public parks, particularly those where run off negatively impacts water bodies
