Abstract/Contents:"In this study, salinity accumulation patterns on 4 fairways of two golf courses irrigated with effluent water were investigated using two different types of sensors. Spatial and temporal salt accumulation patterns were measured using a network of in-situ soil sensors located at two depths (15 and 30 cm for 5TE sensor and 8 and 19cm for Turf Guard sensor TG2). A positive correlation was observed between 5TE sensor-measured soil salinity and saturated paste extracted soil salinity (r = 0.77). In addition, a significant exponential relationship was observed between the values of soil salinity, measured by TG2 sensor, and those measured in saturated paste extraction (R2 = 0.97). Moreover, a strong correlation between the average values of soil salinity and soil water content (r = 0.76), as well as the percentage of sand in the soil (r = -0.63) for Heritage fairway 1 were found. Overall, the highest salinity was pronounced for fairway 19 at Common Ground Golf Course. However, the salinity level as high as 10.6 dS m-1 is not a result of water reuse, but a historical geological contribution. The data of this study suggest that an adequate drainage network in predominantly clay soils irrigated with effluent water could better manage salinity accumulation associated with poor drainage."
