Several courses are sensibly irrigated with re-cycled water, suitably purified at treatment plants, and the Castro Marim course close to the Spanish border, has since its inception used a clever underground watering system that incorporates 'leaky pipes' containing small intentional holes. These supply the precious liquid directly to the grass roots and consequently avoid the rapid evaporation experienced with conventional aerial sprinkling.
