    How clean is the water? Recycled from treatment plant, or stormwater retention?

    Pond locations - sediment ponds or large holding pond?

    Entire golf course or is it a driving range?

    How much are you willing to spend for good turf?

    There is the real question.

    All problems have solutions, just most people aren't willing to pay for the correct solution.

    There's a saying I like best:

    Good, Fast, Cheap. Of the three ways to do a sprinkler system, I can only do two. If you want me to do it Good and Fast, it ain't going to be cheap. If you want it Fast and Cheap, it won't be good. And lastly, if you want it Good and Cheap, it won't be fast.

    Back on topic, I agree, too many variables such as what's the source, or how big is the golf area?

    Trying to help you without getting into much details I'd recommend you to check a company named Amiad in automatic filtration or www.amiad.com . We needed a smaller service from them (than a golf field...) and it was satisfied. Good luck!

    This golf field is going to be a mini-golf and I'm not sure yet about its size. Can you give some more information about the experience that you had with that company? Do you know if it works outside th USA?

    How about sharing some information? What is the water source?
