How water storage tanks and reservoirs add financial value to a golf club

Have you ever marvelled at the greens of a well maintained golf club and wandered how they they keep them looking so lush no matter what the weather? In short it is all about the right mix and concentration of nutrients plus water fed into the ground. The flawless image, however does come with a price tag. Water is becoming more and more expensive leaving golf courses with no other alternative than to invest in water storage tanks or reservoirs to harvest either grey water or rainwater.

A hydroponic system is created on a sterile sand medium, which basically means that the grass is grown in a nutrient rich solution. The risk of most soil-bourne diseases is eliminated and there is control of how much nutrient the grass receives. This also allows for perfect drainage. The surface of the course is contoured to allow for run-off of rainwater and sited in full sunlight with a constant airflow passing over it to keep the surface dry.

But, with all this perfection the grass is dependent on Green Keepers to maintain them. They need regular mowing and a steady supply of water and fertilisers to stay healthy-looking.

Golf clubs use high volumes of water and are often accused of taking mains supply water that could better be used for other purposes. With this in mind plus the ever increasing cost of water, other sources are investigated and weighed up against the financial and environmental benefits each offers. Golf clubs look to utilise water sources not suitable for drinking such as recycled water - however this also involves constant checks for toxic levels of contaminants. Building of reservoirs or installing water storage tanks allows for the collection rainwater. These options require space and an initial cost, but the long-term benefits will be immense.

Investing in water storage tanks to harvest rainwater, or building lakes or reservoirs to collect water will assist in saving valuable costs plus ensure a constant supply of this valuable resource. It is also about Golf Clubs taking responsibility to promote water conservation and protect water resources. Russetts Developments Ltd (RDL) supply lake liners and flexible rubber water storage tank liners both of which are used in situations where water storing is employed. You can visit RDL website for details of experience the company have had with supplying lake liners, tank liners and liners for other water containment projects
