Water availability as we all know it is scarce on a global scale. Apart from educating and informing about water saving, in the further attempt, we recently introduced water-saving nozzles on all our taps in and around our clubhouse and buildings. Standard taps were running at 6L /minute and the new nozzles run at 1,3 L /minute an estimated 77% saving. The input of purchasing these nozzles was minimal, yet the savings and reduction in use have been incredible.
On our courses, we have re-adjusted the arcs of certain sprinklers to only be direct at target areas, we have had wall to wall irrigation for many years and are converting most of our 360/full circle sprinklers into 180/part circle sprinklers.
