    Good afternoon everybody,

    At the Leics and Rutland GG Conference at Beedles Lake on 8th February, the topic that led to the most animated discussions was WATER. It was clear that climate change, and the effects this is having on rainfall (too much, in sudden bursts, in the winter, and too little in the summer), is prompting some far-reaching questions in many golf clubs.

    We hope to be addressing this issue through the website, and in more depth at next year’s conference. In the meanwhile, it would be interesting to have a preliminary conversation about it.
    – What is your club doing, if anything, about this?
    – What conversations are taking place? What projects being undertaken?
    – What challenges are you facing? What solutions (pardon the pun…) are you coming up with?

    At Greetham Valley we use a closed loop wash off system for cleaning machinery which uses recycled water. We have installed 4 water meters on site to highlight any mains leaks immediately.
    We capture rain water from the car park and clubhouse roofs to use as irrigation water. We store all our irrigation water needs in several lakes that are linked to allow us to move water to where it is needed.
