Golf Courses Conserving Water by 30%

LCRA, as part of its ongoing efforts to work with its customers to use water more efficiently, held a drought response workshop for golf course managers on Thursday, Nov. 12 2009. The workshop featured Mark Esoda, superintendent of the Atlanta Country Club, who provided information on how Atlanta-area golf courses dealt with a severe multiyear drought that peaked in 2007. At the workshop, a regional panel of superintendents also discussed various topics, including their individual water conservation and drought response efforts, as well as associated costs and lessons learned. Some tips can be found in the University of Georgias Best Management Practices for Turfgrass guide.
