The transformation of 8.5 ha of the golf course to native areas, has allowed us to reduce the need to intensively maintain areas that are not "in play". There are plans in place to add 3.5 ha to this figure. These native areas not only allow us to reduce inputs that are typically associated to highly maintained turf (mowing, fertilization, pest control, etc.), but also reduces the overall volume of water that is needed for golf course irrigation and the energy consumption associated to it. Also, they add great aesthetic value and natural appeal to the golf course.
