looking dry but the greens are still living up to their name, thanks to some ingenuity.
"We have two tanks that we catch water out of and then we have pumps set up that
we can pump it throughout the course and water it that way. It's rainwater that's
accumulated over several years." Said Sonny Parker with the Archer City Country Club.
With Archer City in Stage 3 Water Restrictions, the Country Club has had to go through plenty
of watering restrictions themselves, just like the rest of us.
"If we reach Stage 4 Restrictions here in town, technically we can't water anymore but
since we're using raw water we can still water our greens." Said Parker.
During this water shortage the course continues to be a money maker for the city and they
know that having healthy greens is vital to keeping the course up and running.
"We're going to do whatever we can to keep our greens alive because if they die it's going
to cost way more than have to fix it." Said Parker.
Even though things are looking dry, course officials say it's still a good place to spend an afternoon teeing off.
"It's definitely affected our Tee Boxes and things. It's harder to tee up a ball and things like
that but business-wise we're still
doing okay." Said Parker.
