Summary:
When Purdue's newly renovated Kampen Golf Course opened June 27, most golfers focused on how renowned golf course architects Dye and Tim Liddy have looped the course around a marsh known as the Celery Bog. But for some Purdue scientists, the course is a unique opportunity to study environmental and agronomic problems of urban America.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- As research laboratories go, this is pretty nice. Bentgrass fairways, greens and bunkers all designed by noted architect Pete Dye. It's almost like a day out on the golf course.
