Does anyone know how the nicer courses and clubs in the Palm Desert/La Quinta are handling the water restrictions? Any local insight on what to expect this winter with regards to course conditions.

    Most courses in the region use gray water. Shouldn't be much of an impact.

    I assume "grey water" means either river water or recycled/reclaimed water? Or do you mean ground water? I believe ground water use is supposed to comply with the ~25% reduction. Any insight from those who are members or play regularly in the desert?

    Recycled/reclaimed water. You flush a toilet and it ends up on a golf course. Okay, that's overly simplistic, but that's it in a nutshell.
