Golfweek recently ran a story with the headline "Arizona golf courses use more water than they're supposed to. Nothing is stopping them," which originally ran on azcentral.com and in The Arizona Republic newspaper. All of those media outlets are a part of the USA Today network.

The report took a look at how much water golf courses in Arizona were using, the source of the water, the allocations allotted and what, if any, enforcement mechanisms existed to crack down on any potential bad actors.

In response to the story, the Arizona Alliance for Golf sent a statement to The Republic and Golfweek, rebutting many of the points raised in the story.

The statement was signed by The Arizona Alliance for Golf, Arizona Golf Association, Visit Phoenix, Southwest Section PGA of America, Cactus & Pine Superintendents Association, National Golf Course Owners Association (Arizona Chapter), Greater Southwest Chapter, Club Management Association of America, Junior Golf Association of Arizona, First Tee of Phoenix and The Thunderbirds, a community organization that runs the WM Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale.

We are running the statement in its entirety here:
