The club has made a major commitment to reducing water use. An irrigation system uses collected storm water and reclaimed water through surficial wells before using potable water; and a state-of-the-art computer-driven irrigation system has resulted in 70% reduction in potable water use.

Course management includes a policy to keep non-playing areas naturalized for food and shelter for wildlife.
