Lessen your Golf Course environmental footprint!

Every development has an impact on the environment.  With the state of the environment today, to lessen the impact or footprint is not only important but necessary.  Furthermore, the EIA requirements are becoming increasingly stringent, as well as public interest groups becoming more involved. 

Golf Environmental Footprint awareness

On-Course Solutions will help to successfully Lessen your Golf Course Environmental Footprint.

Our Environmental Solutions Include:

  • Hydro Seeding without additives;

  • Hydro Seeding applications applied once, thereby conserving water usage;

  • Bunker stabilization without geotextiles, plastic mats, or bitumen;

  • Cart Paths constructed with in-situ material thereby negating or significantly decreasing the need for cement or imported aggregate material;

  • Our partner companies can provide even more solutions including Dust Control during construction and Road Construction using in-situ materials.

Reduce your Golf Course Environmental footprint with our Products:

Hydrotac for effective hydro seeding

Hydrotac is completely environmentally safe (non-toxic, non-hazardous, safe and easy to apply) and will result in a decrease of the enviromantal impact of golf course developement as Hydrotac™ eliminates the need to use other products which according to Audubon international have the following ecological effects:

  • Pollution of ground water and surface water caused by use of pesticides, fertilizers and other components.

  • Poor stream water quality due to eroding shorelines

  • Withdrawal of large quantities of water for irrigation

  • Degradation or loss of natural areas

  • Health hazards from chemical handling and applications

  • Negative impacts of chemical use on “Non-target” wildlife

  • Unsound turf management driven by increasing and unrealistic golfer expectations and demands.

The case studies conducted proved that the Hydrotac™ hydro seeding mixture only had to be applied once, not the normal four-six times as was required when Hydrotac™ was not in use.

Bunkertac - bunker stabilization

The Bunker Stabilization method developed by On-Course Solutions is totally unique and provides the most environmentally friendly solution of any other method, period.

There is no other method used to stabilize bunkers and prevent erosion which provides less of an environmental impact  than Bunktertac applied in accordance with On-Course specifications.

  • no cement

  • no bitumen

  • no geotextiles

  • no plastic

  • no metal pins

  • no leaching into the soil

  • no water, soil or sand contamination

Natures Path - Cart path construction

A typical golf course has between 8-15 km of cart paths.  The construction, use and maintenance of these paths are perhaps one of the largest areas of environmental impact, and definetly have an impact on the natural visual of the course.

The traditional use of cement, asphalt or bitumen on cart paths creates a huge environmental footprint and permanently alters the landscape forever.

The construction of cart paths using a soil stabilizer and our patent pending Nature’s Path coating allow for a significantly reduced environmental impact as well as hugely improved natural aesthetics.
