Softgolf cares about our planet and that’s why we’re active in conserving water, utilizing green energy, recycling, and refrain from using pesticides and harsh chemicals.
Here are some of the ways we are caring for our beautiful planet:
NO WATERING, FERTILIZERS, or PESTICIDES:
Unlike most courses we do not water our grounds or use any pesticides, fertilizers or chemicals. We are fortunate we are in an area (climate) where our grounds stay fairly nice without any assistance on our behalf.
By 2022 we plan to use solar power to light up and operate Softgolf. Imagine our course lit up for nighttime play the holes, flags, balls, clubs, scorecard stands, and tee-off boxes all illuminated through the power of the Sun. Our GEM electric vehicle already provides us with the ability to set up and tear down the course daily without the use of gas.
FUTURE SOFTGOLF LOCATIONS:
Softgolf owns 35,000 sq ft of synthetic turf we plan to utilize for our greens. (Since we operate in a park on Government property, we are not able to use it at our current location). We plan to use synthetic turf for our greens. This will ensure our patrons have a nice course to play without us using water, harsh chemicals or using gas guzzling machines. We”ll also be investing in electric lawn mowers recharged with solar power panels and to have a maintenance free driving range at our next location. Our innovations in ground care will help keep the Earth healthier and keep our operating costs lower.
Softgolf President, Raymond Baldorossi Jr. recently designed, built and tested a ball that he believes will last over 100 years. Having a ball that will last over 100 years, is Earth-friendly because it’s not necessary to continuously use fossil fuels to manufacture more balls. It plays well, is resistant to harsh chemicals, oils, hot and cold temperatures, UV rays, and it cleans to a new look easily. It also retains its shape very well. It can be run over with a tank and quickly regain its original shape. The best thing about it is it can be mass-produced and while we are still testing and making some small adjustments to it, we’ll be mass producing it soon.
It has performed well in every portion of testing and exceeded all expected quality levels in every category of specified criteria.
We pay attention to the newest innovations. When we learn about something new that helps Softgolf operate more proficiently and cleaner we will make every effort to utilize it.
