Abstract/Contents:"Water is perhaps the most controversial and vital resource that golf courses use, making it especially important to understand how efficient golf courses are in their use of water. The average US golf course used 131 million liters of water in 2013 (Gelernter et al., 2015), or the equivalent of what 314 US households would use in a year (US EPA, 2019). Golf course water use varies greatly by region. On average golf courses in the Southwest use the most water, 118 cm of irrigation a year, while golf courses in the transition zone of the US use only 18 cm of irrigation each year. With pressure on water resources only to intensity with a changing climate, it becomes imperative to develop methodologies that can determine just how efficient golf courses are being with their use of water. One such method of measuring water use efficiency on golf courses is to compare a golf courses actual water use to model predicted use. Modeling water use on golf courses is often termed "water budgeting". In this study, we used the USGA approach as a baseline method of water budgeting. We then introduce a tipping-bucket model as an example of a model of intermediate complexity. This model is similar to the approach of Gelerntner et al. (2015). Finally we use a global dynamic agroecosystem model, Agro-IBIS (the Agricultural Integrated BIosphere Simulator) to predict golf course water requirement."
