Drought - Doesn't Have to Mean a Brown Course!

Drought doesn’t have to be a big issue and your clubs’ operation and customer experience, if planned for and well managed. Threats to golf water security come from many quarters: global warming, lower rainfall, drier summers and drought. Throw in the unpredictable risks of climate change and tighter environmental requirements, without a Drought Management Plan these changes will likely affect your clubs’ business model, customer experience and future growth. The Focus On session offers practical advice on how to identify your clubs’ drought risks and develop options to help you plan for a water poor future.
