The relationship between microbial activity and physico-chemical characteristics of golf course soils were investigated in Kyonggi Province with different open years. The increasing tendency of soil PH with depth seemed to the result of mineral leaching. Exchangeable $Ca^2$+ , $Mg^2$+ and K+ showed relatively higher concentration in lower horizon indicating the leaching of minerals. The minerals were heavily leached in older golf course. There was a significant positive correlation between pH and $Ca^2$+.The contents of organic matters, total nitrogen and phosphorus were high in higher horizon.Dehydrogenase activity(DHA) and the content of ATP were determined as an index of soil microbial activity. DHA value was significantly different with golf club as well as golf courses ac-cording todifferent open year. This indicates that DHA was affected by several fertilizertreatments rather than herbicide pesticide treatments. DHA was positively correlated with water holding capacity and total nitrogen. The content of ATP was high in fairway and in golf course with older open year, showing the similar tendency with the results of DHA.
