  • No irrigation between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. on any weekday, no irrigation is permitted on the weekends (Saturday or Sunday) .
  • Raise mowing heights to the maximum acceptable level as a means of increasing grass drought tolerance.

  • Temporarily reduce the irrigation of each golf course green and tee to no more than three applications per week.

All irrigation systems must be operated so that surface water runoff is eliminated according to best management practices. Overhead irrigation is not permitted between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and must be reduced to the maximum extent possible.

Use best management practices for water use activities that are essential to their operation.
