Bees create the 'buzz'

Bees are creating "buzz" at one midwestern golf course.

Cantigny Golf Course, owned by the Robert R. McCormick Foundation and managed by KemperSports, is widely regarded as one of the finest public golf facilities in the Midwest. It also is home to an industry-leading honeybee health program, led by Cantigny’s director of agronomy Scott Witte.

The Chicago, Ill., chapter of the National Agri-Marketing Assn. recently toured the Cantigny Golf Course in Wheaton, Ill., and learned about Witte's Bee Barometer Project and how it is effectively changing public perception about golf courses' roles in conservation and land management.
