Great … something else for Charles Barkley to hit. A golf course in Canfield, Ohio, is going green and helping to “save the environment” by maintaining their courses entirely with goats. And in case you’ve never seen a goat driving a John Deere riding mower, I can tell you they’re very good.
Of course the goats will actually eat the grass, keeping the course manicured and tidy as only goats can. And the restrooms — spotless. It all sounds like a scheme that Carl Spackler would dream up, but owners of the Kensington Golf Course say that when they factor in fuel, labor, and equipment maintenance, the goats are saving them thousands of dollars.

“What we use the goats for is to … eat all the foliage down so that we’re not in there with weed eaters and gas powered motors, to basically reduce our carbon footprint on the environment,” said Sean Novotny, course superintendent.
Installing a solar panel, are you? The Kensington Golf Course goats laugh at your feeble attempts at going green.
