Golf courses are long term investments that can remain lucrative and sustainable if they are willing to evolve with the demands and needs of their environment, budget, and communities. To have a lasting design that can adapt as needed to these needs, it is best to work with an ASGCA certified golf architect. ASGCA members have specialized knowledge they apply to the design of your course. If you are looking to remodel a golf course in order to help it thrive, contact Jeffrey D. Brauer. He specializes in breathing new life into old courses in a way that respects and showcases the natural resources surrounding it.
Explored again below are the top three categories of golf course sustainability and what makes them important to take into consideration when designing or remodeling your golf course:
Environmental Sustainability: Environmental conservation will be one of the most important aspects of your design. This is partially for longevity, but also partially because of the environmental regulations that are placed on the amount of water and pesticides you can use in your space. If you make a design that sucks up too much water, or puts the environment (or animals and plants living in it) at risk, you will not be able to maintain the design without being in violation of laws and guidelines. This will affect your ability to function as a golf course and can be difficult to bounce back from.
Economic Sustainability: The idea of economic sustainability is ensuring your overhead and costs of operation never impact your set level of profit. Working with an experienced golf architect will help keep your design profitable and sustainable for the years to come because they will have the foresight to factor in the costs of regular maintenance and larger projects down the road. This is important in order to keep your profits at a set level that is comfortable for your needs.
Social Sustainability: Social sustainability is the measure and management of your design’s impact on the surrounding communities and businesses around the golf course. This is important to measure because you want your course to be successful and your success will rely on community support and accountability. Working within your community to keep them satisfied will go a long way in ensuring a lasting design.
