CalSap is part of our maintenance program
Goonawarra Golf Course is similar to many golf courses with the water supply being effluent water provided by our local water body. Whilst the water supply is critical for the sustainability of our Golf Course, it comes with its own set of issues.
High salinity, high chloride and high levels of sodium are common-place with effluent water, so we sat down and looked at a number of options and products to reduce these levels in the soil.
CalSap was selected for a number of reasons, its high solubility and ease of application compared to Gypsum, and also the technical data supporting flushing sodium, salts & chlorides from the soil.
Since incorporating CalSap into our maintenance program we have noticed improved water penetration and a significant drop in sodium and salinity in our latest soil tests.
We periodically take soil tests to monitor the effect of the effluent water and will continue to use CalSap as part of our maintenance program.
