|Rain water - that's all - at Love's Hunting Hawk|
Hunting Hawk Golf Club in South Ana, Va., is discussed in glowing terms in the latest "Golf Digest." Specifically, Ron Whitten writes about the efforts of Bill Love, ASGCA, in designing a course which uses nothing but rainwater to irrigate the entire public course.
Whitten writes that at the recent United State Golf Association two-day conference, "Golf's Use of Water: Solutions for a More Sustainable Game," Love's discussion of Hunting Hawk was the highlight presentation.
"Hunting Hawk could have been--maybe should have been--the centerpiece of the water summit, because its solution went to the heart of the issue.
"Only tees, fairways, greens and a narrow band of primary rough are irrigated. Secondary rough and "conservation areas" are indigenous grasses, never watered except by nature, rarely mowed."
