Olivas Links has been awarded the 2015 Community Environmental Award at the annual meeting of the CGCOA (California Golf Course Owner’s Association).

The highlights for Olivas Links receiving the award included:

●  The renovation of the 12.5 acre driving range with the use of artificial turn and decomposed granite which greatly reduced water usage and need for fertilizers and pesticides
●  Use of reclaimed water for irrigation
●  Expansive native areas
●  Paspalum turf which is very salt tolerant thus requiring less water that would normally be needed to flush out naturally occurring salts in the soil
●  Recycling all consumer beverage containers as well as golf course green waste and maintenance equipment oil
●  On site natural habitat home to many species of birds, mammals, reptiles and recognized by the Audubon Society

In addition to the award, Olivas Links was also recently named by golfadvisor.com to a list of the most water-conscious golf courses.  A link to that article can be found at http://www.golfadvisor.com/articles/golf-course-water-conservation-15533.htm
