Topic: Redevelopment of the Palm Beach Par 3
Qualified for 1 PDH
Located between the Ocean and Intracoastal in Palm Beach, FL this project is an example of how environmentally-friendly and water conservation enhancements can be incorporated into public golf course development. This municipal golf course was in desperate need of restoration to address numerous deficiencies and to update the design to regain its former glory when it was the #1 ranked Par 3 in the U.S. Deteriorated infrastructure and stormwater was a significant problem that affected playability, allowed nutrient-laden runoff into the Intracoastal, and caused flooding of State Road A1A. Restoration was required to meet strict permitting conditions, stormwater issues, and irrigation challenges while protecting and enhancing the environment. A significant project innovation was the use of brackish water irrigated turf and the development of a combined brackish/reclaimed stormwater irrigation water supply. This conserves 90,000 gallons of potable water each day and saves the Town over $100,000 annually.
