The Stanley golf club’s owners are offering to pay up to $10 million to build a wall on their property, in an effort to keep the greens from becoming overrun with invasive species.
Stanley Golf Club’s owners, who own the course in San Diego, are offering $10,000 to help pay for the wall at their San Diego golf course.
But, as USA Today notes, the proposal comes at a time when many California golf courses are facing an increased demand for greens in the wake of the drought.
“This is just the tip of the iceberg.
If we don’t do something, we’re going to be looking at another $10 to $15 million that could be spent on the property over the next 10 years,” Stanley Golf Club President Brian Koehler said.
Koehler and the club’s other owners in the San Diego area also want to create a $20 million fund to cover the costs of constructing the wall.
The club is not the only one looking to pay to keep wildlife away from the greens.
The San Diego Zoo recently announced it would pay $1 million to help with efforts to reduce the spread of the invasive plant that causes the plant to spread throughout the Zoo.
