Abstract/Contents:Describes the Hunting Hawk Golf Club in Richmond, VA which has designed an irrigation system that relies solely on rainwater. Explains how the system utilizes drainage and a combination of streams, ponds, and wetlands which serve to filter the rainwater, as well as act as storage for irrigation. Describes how course architect Bill Love and superintendent Timothy Spillane have worked together with a goal to "create wildlife habitat and, at the same time, reduce maintenance on the golf course." States that this course is "proof that architects and developers can do a better job containing construction costs and preserving the environment, and still earn a return on greens fees."
