Since 2015, we have been looking at reducing the maintained areas of turf. One of our practices is to let the area of turf not-in-play, become deep rough. We turned off around 300 irrigation sprinklers in these areas, to let the turf grow wild and gradually become deep rough. As a result, we reduced 15ha of maintained turf, saved man hours, the consumption of water, fertilizer and pesticides, all while enhancing the golf course landscape.
