dc.description.abstract Integrated Specialized Sports Area (ISSA) focuses on the conservation of resources and land within today's highly consumptive development patterns. The consumption of natural resources for the development of exclusive recreational sports, such as golfing and motor racing, brings about the and wasteful use of natural resources. It is an unavoidable situations provision of specialized recreational sports that require large exp and major resources expenditure to develop, use, and maintain. Yet, it should not be an excuse to take advantage of our finite resources. Lands through their expertise in master planning and design, can successfully concentrate specialized recreational sports in one area. Creating integrated reduce resource consumption and land exploitation while eliminating single use areas that are exclusive in use or dormant a large percentage of time. Special interest sports was the emphasis of the integration concept, ship golfing and motorcycle grand prix racing being the design focus. Other sports that could be included in the ISSA concept were shooting sports (field archery, sporting clays, and silhouette shooting), long distance fitness sports (walking, hiking, and on and off road bicycling), and off season (cross country skiing, sledding, snowmobile trails) and many other requirements. However, golf course and race track design was the focus of this project due to the complexities involved in master planning the integration of these sports and in order to have the least possible environmental impact on the chosen site.
