Project Details
About this project
Golf course designers identified the course layout (greens, fairways, sand traps, etc) for the Robert Trent Jones Golf Course in Virgina. Civil Engineers created the plans and specifications for their design. These plans were used to obtain permits from the County to allow the construction. The plans were also used to show the contractors how to construct the golf course. Civil engineers also worked with the golf course designers to identify features (such as ponds, diversion channels, sand traps) that could capture and treat the stormwater before it drained into Lake Manasas.
Who benefits from this project, and how?
Golfers love the golf course, although you have to be a member of the club to play on it. You could see the course when the PGA Presidents Cup was held there. Developmet of the course and associated residential community helped bring needed infrastructure and jobs to Gainesville.
Environmental considerations
The golf course is located along Lake Manasas, which is a drinking water supply. Therefore, the course was designed to protect the lake. This included collecting and treating the stormwater runoff before it entered the lake. As a result we added a water feature, or pond, to the course that was not originally planned by Mr. Jones. Storrmwater runoff enters the pond and the pollutants settle out before the water is discharged into the lake.
