Environmentally-friendly project requires minimal water use and eliminates use of fertilizers
(Northbrook, Ill.) – KemperSports announced that Olivas Links golf course in Ventura, Calif., will re-open its driving range after undergoing a renovation that continues their commitment of environmental stewardship at the property. The drought-tolerant 12.5-acre range includes 29 hitting stations with both artificial and natural grass tee options.
The key component of the project was converting the practice facility to include artificial surface greens with decomposed granite surrounds. The natural look and feel will require minimal use of water and eliminate the need for fertilizers and pesticides.
“The new practice facility is a welcome addition to our award-winning golf facility and reiterates KemperSports’ commitment to environmental stewardship,” said Olivas Links general manager Matt Kalbak.
The project extends Olivas Links’ participation in Green to a Tee. Launched in 2009, Green to a Tee is KemperSports’ proprietary program focusing on environmental initiatives within several core areas of facility operations, including golf course maintenance, habitat management and water conservation.
