Aerial Photos: Golf Course Landscapes With Controlled Burn

National Golf Links of America uses burn technique to trim back vegetation.

To upkeep the greens, landscapers at National Golf Links of America in Tuckahoe used controlled burns on Thursday. The fires remove vegetation and restore nutrients to the soil. Aerial photographer Jeff Cully of East End Fine Arts Services in Quogue happened to be in the air at the time, and he caught pictures of the scene.

Thanks for pointing that out. The post has been updated to correctly identify the golf course.

There's no way they did any burning as part of a program to "upkeep the greens". That makes absolutely no sense and is belied by the pictures.
