Supervisor Don Knabe announced today that Los Verdes Golf Course would receive an estimated $2 million dollars to renovate the irrigation system.
The funding will provide for a more efficient system that will be able to determine the optimal times for irrigation to be conducted. It can also turn the system off during rainy weather to avoid over watering to make optimal use of resources.
"As the only golf course located in Rancho Palos Verdes overlooking the stunning vista of the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island, Los Verdes is a wonderful asset to the County’s recreation facilities," said Knabe.
The system will include the installation of new main lines, laterals, valves, irrigation heads and a controller. A wash area clarifier at the maintenance yard will connect to the existing sewer system. In addition to gauging water needs, the new system will be capable of injecting fertilizer into the turf.
"We are so excited to move forward on this project," said Knabe. "This new efficient irrigation system will help update and maintain the stunning grounds for golfers."
The estimated two year project will not affect the public’s use of the golf course.
