Foshan Golf Club is on a large property at the center of a larger development; the golf club land serves as the core green space and wildlife habitat of the development. One notices the large trees and expanses of scrub vegetation and native woodland; the maintained turf, by comparison, covers a small area. When encountering one of the many ponds on the property, it is not just a view of water, but also a healthy pond with native plants growing in the shallow areas and on floating islands. Maintenance of the drought-tolerant grasses on the cour…

Nature

Foshan Golf Club was built with many acres of natural grass (Bahia) throughout. These undisturbed areas will provide natural habitats for the indigenous wildlife such as reptiles, rodents, ground dwelling birds as well as many types of insects and arachnids (invertebrates). Previously, the land in which Foshan Golf Club now resides was farmland. The area is relatively flat with no significant vistas. Future plans will include reduction of ornamental types of landscaping and in its place we will incorporate native and natural indigenous types of plant material to minimize fertilizers, chemicals and other high maintenance costs.since 2013, the area of turf maintenance is gradually reducing about 2000m2, and the area of indigeous and bahia is increasing. It not only decrease man-made disturbance, but also promote integrating golf course into surrounding ecological environment.
高尔夫球场建设时很多区域全部种植了天然草坪(百喜草)。这些自然景观区域能为当地野生动物,例如爬行类,啮齿类,地栖鸟类同时也包括许多种类的昆虫和无脊椎动物 提供天然栖息地。之前,佛山高尔夫球会所在土地是农田。该地区相对来说比较平坦,没有特别的景色。未来计划将包括减少观赏类景观,结合自然本土的植物类型,降低化肥,农药和其他高维护成本。自2013年以来,草坪维护面积逐步减少近2000平方,增加土著植物的面积和百喜草面积,不仅减少人为的干扰,而且球场环境与周边生态环境更好地融合

Water

Water use is closely managed with deep and infrequent watering cycles via an automatic irrigation control system. Irrigation water sources are several large retention lakes and ponds for both the golf course and the community around the golf course. Most ponds and waterways are connected to the irrigation water source via underground storm drain pipes that are large and free flowing. Also, the irrigation system watering at a set time for each area of the golf course.
Club has optimized the efficiency of the showerheads to effectively provide adequate water pressure while conserving water.
When Foshan golf club entres service in 2013, the consumption of water ncluding the club house, halfway house,employee canteen and dormitory, and washing station is increasing slowly.

Energy

In Foshan Golf Club, there are four different types of energies supplies, which are diesel, gasoline, liquified petroleum gas (LPG) and electricity, these are all required for day-to-day operations. Most of maintenance equipments are using diesel and gasoline as their main operation energy supply. The club house, maintenance warehouse , irrigation pump station and most of the golf course facilities are using electricity as main energy source. The water heating boiler uses LPG to heat water for club house shower compartments in the locker rooms and gas is also used in the club house kitchen. The electricity is delivered by the city’s public municipal power supply bureau. When Foshan golf club entres service since 2013, the consumption of electricity and fuel is increasing slowly. The consumption of LPG is reducing and replaced by natural gas gradually.
佛山高尔夫球会共有五种不同的能源类型,分别为柴油,汽油,液化石油气(LPG),电和太阳能,这些都是日常经营所需要的。大部分草坪维护机械使用柴油和汽油作为主要的能源供应。会所,维修车间,喷灌泵房和大部分球场设施使用电能作为主要的能源供应。热水器使用液化石油气来加热水,用以会所衣帽间的淋浴室和会所厨房。电能由佛山市供电局供应。高尔夫球会自2013年运营后,耗电量及燃油使用量缓慢增加,逐步将天然气替代液化石油气。
