Myrtle Beach Golf Courses

Golf is a very old game of which the exact origins are unclear. Golf is played in an area of land designated a golf course. Golf courses do not look clean and green on accident. A lot of care goes into keeping these tracks of land looking the way they do. They use several techniques as an investment.

The turf on golf courses is an excellent filter for water and has been used in communities to cleanse gray water. While most modern 18-hole golf courses occupy around 150 acres of land, the average course has 75 acres of maintained turf. People continue to oppose golf courses for environmental and human survival reasons, as they impede corridors for migrating animals and sanctuaries for birds and other wildlife.

Golf courses use Aeration multiple times a year. Aeration is the working of a turf soil without causing damage to the turf by coring, slitting, grooving, hole punching, forking, sliding, spiking or other resources to condense compaction and improve water and air movement through the soil. Professional turf managers and groundskeepers know the benefits of habitual aeration, one of which is the main savings on water costs for golf courses.

Aeration is just one of the many ways that golf courses maintain their courses. They also use hydro seeding, leaching, matting, plugging, scalping, syringing, desiccation and blending of grass species. Golf courses can be called “Air conditioners” that release high amounts of oxygen and cooling the atmosphere. Healthy grass is an excellent filter that catch pollutants and runoff. Golf courses are also one of the best ways to restore damaged land such as landfills.

If you play golf, you create divot; it’s part of the game. When you create divots you should repair them. A divot can take up to a month to be fully repaired. Some courses ask you to repair your divots, and some ask you to fill the hole with sand, or a mixture of sand a seed which is usually provided.

Golf courses are usually treated with effluent water. Effluent water is partially treated wastewater that has had the major pollutants removed and but still has enough bacteria to render it undrinkable. Effluent courses are being recognized as environment friendly industries.
