Tuscany Golf Club does its part to conserve water in Las Vegas
If you’ve ever wondered how they’re able to water all those golf courses in the Las Vegas area desert, well, it isn’t easy. To combat the problem, many courses have been making revisions so they will use less water.
Tuscany Golf Club in Henderson is the latest to work with the Southern Nevada Water Authority, having just completed an expansive conservation project. The club did it by removing approximately 6 acres of turf and surrounds that really don’t come into play.
What Tuscany replaced it with is crushed granite and vegetation that uses drip irrigation system instead of a sprinkler system. The new landscaping will conserve approximately 6.2 million gallons of water annually.
“The main goals accomplished by the projects’ completion include the conservation of water, the enhanced beauty and playability of the golf course, and to support and bring awareness to the ongoing conservation needs of the Las Vegas valley,” said Chad Gunier, PGA GM of Tuscany G.C. “These conservation efforts will further reduce the golf club’s consumption of water without impacting the quality of play that we provide for our guests.”
The club also has plans to renovate its par-4 ninth hole, which offers great views of the valley and is one of the best holes on the golf course. The plan is to convert an area to bunkering for more better drainage. It will also add to the visual appeal of the golf hole, officials said.
