The client, Sheikh Faisal Bin Saqr Al Qasimi appointed Hydroturf to design and build Tower Links Golf Course in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE.
A particular problem in building this Course was that the irrigation water quality reached 20,000 ppm in the summer months and a Reverse Osmosis desalination system was not possible for the golf course.
To cope with this high salinity, Hydroturf worked with suppliers on suitable products and used SeaIsle Paspallum grass, which is a high salt tolerant grass.
There will be few golf courses in the world operating with such high salinity. So its a huge compliment to the grass, pumps, irrigation, machinery and golf cars supplied by Hydroturf and the course management. That since opening in 2004, the course continues to offer golfers a superb high quality experience.
