Abstract/Contents:In Queensland, the Gold Coast is being turned into the Golf Coast. The Japanese want to buy thirty golf courses and the people who want to sell now is tremondous. There are thirty-four new courses under construction presently, and each will cost up to $12 million. When the potable water becomes limited, the golf courses will be the first to be cut off from it. They have to be watered with reclaimed water now because of the high cost of city water. This brings with it a need for expertise in effluent treatment and disposal, disinfection by chlorination and storage of this treated water. The Irrigation Association of Australia met with the Golf Course Superintendents Association of Australia to hold a workshop on sports turf watering and construction recently. The main speaker was Greg Matthews from Hydra-Plan, a major firm of golf course design consultants in the Gold Coast. He spoke on irrigation design and installation. He also suggested that the design engineer work and take suggestions from the superintendent of the golf course, since he is the one who must work with and depend on it forever after.
