What are the developing trends in golf course construction in the future dealing with costs, water use, and maintenance?
With land and construction costs continuing to rise and golfers wanting faster play we believe you will see more courses with less holes such as 6 and 12 hole courses (which is what golf was in the beginning).
See http://www.prestwick12golf.com for more information.
With less land to puchase, less in construction costs and less in maintenance costs, golf will become more affordable to more people.
Also there are exciting new developments in synthetic turf which will have a dramatic effect on water needs as well as reduced maintenance costs (no over-seeding, topdressing or aerifying).
