are integral elements of quality golf courses, providing aesthetic
appeal and play enhancement. Usually lakes serve as storage
reservoirs for the irrigation system.
aesthetics can be further enhanced with extensive rockwork
and dramatic flows, shoreline treatments of artificial and
natural rocks, railroad ties, aquatic plantings and meandering
streams between lakes. Golf Courses Lake Systems also often
function as a conveyance of storm flows using interconnecting
stream beds, and for storm water detention in the lake basin.
mandated use of reclaimed water for golf course irrigation
in many jurisdictions requires a Lake System design that can
effectively mitigate the adverse aesthetic effects associated
with impounding nutrient rich water.
