4 Aug WATERING A GOLF COURSE Over the past few years, golf course irrigation has become a hot topic in the environmental community. On average a modern golf course needs 100 000 to 1 000 000 gallons of water per week to maintain playability. This massive water intake puts golf courses under tremendous scrutiny, and rightly so; in areas such as California where the Earth’s limited supply of fresh water is very apparent, using such a vast amount of water to feed the gigantic courses can seem hard to justify. At Strum, we’ve had experience consulting for golf course developments before, and take the topic of water management very seriously. Creating greener greens is a priority to golfers and non-golfers alike.
