Nature is woven into the game of golf.
If you are a Superintendent, Groundskeeper or Facility Manager, you want your water hazards looking as good as your fairways.
Many chemical fertilizers contain nitrates, phosphates and pesticides. These chemical fertilizers run off into water hazards, ponds, lakes, and streams, causing excess nutrient buildup that can lead to algae blooms and unwanted aquatic plant growth.
Nature’s Pond Care products have been specifically designed to combat nutrient pollution in water sources.
For over 30 years we have worked with pond owners, farmers, municipalities, and golf courses.
Nature's Pond Conditioner improves water quality, is completely safe for your staff to handle, and is good for the environment. Over time, our pond care program will help reduce your pond care budget by preventing pond problems from getting out of control. Dredging a water hazard can be costly!
To keep your water hazards clean and clear, we will put together a customized pond care program for your golf course. Our Pond Care Program follows three steps: Renew, Revive, and Remove. Renew with Nature’s Pond Conditioner Ultra Concentrate. Revive with bottom-up aeration with a Koenders Aeration System. Remove unwanted aquatic vegetation with the Koenders Cutter ‘N’ Rake.
Benefits of our Pond Care Program:
Aquatic vegetation and high levels of algae impact the oxygen levels of water and can dramatically affect the health of fish and wildlife. If you use a pond for irrigation on your golf course, then other issues that can occur include pump and filter maintenance, sprinkler head cleaning, and the health of turf when using an irrigation pond as a water source. Killing off aquatic vegetation only adds to pond problems; it sinks to the bottom of the pond and adds more nutrients, leading to bad odors and increased insect breeding.
We can help keep your golf course water hazards clean and clear.

“The Koenders HD 450 Electric Aeration System is Amazing!
We use it at our Golf Course to keep the water clean and the fish alive and healthy throughout the winter.
I am very impressed with the Koenders HD 450 Electric Aeration System - I set it up with 2 air diffusers. I cut a 1.5 ft hole in the ice for each air diffuser and lowered them down and a couple days later each hole had increased to about 20ft in diameter WOW !!! And it’s been 20 below C every night too !
I was skeptical that it would keep the water open, but it has exceeded my expectations.”

"Since 1993 the City of Prineville has operated the Meadow Lakes Golf Course. This course is part of the City's wastewater treatment plant and is used to dispose of treated effluent. The course contains 10 large ponds of treated effluent, providing a water hazard on all 18 holes.
As the ponds contain treated wastewater in such close proximity to the public, the Department of Environmental Quality would not allow for water features to be used that would spray or aerate the water. Bottom Up aeration was required and was the only type of aeration that was permissible.
The City recognized that the ponds needed to be aerated to prohibit the production of hydrogen sulfide and to clarify the water. However, there was no power source near the ponds to provide aeration and trenching miles of power lines through the turf and irrigation systems was not possible.
The City teamed with Koenders Water Solutions Inc on a solution. By placing 5 separate windmill systems on various ponds, the City has cost effectively solved the problem. The windmills have now been working for 2.5 years and the hydrogen sulfide smell has not been an issue once. Also, water quality is slowly improving.
Overall, Koenders Water Solutions have been a great, cost effective solution for the City of Prineville."

"Our #10 lake is 140 yards long by 40 yards wide and 14ft deep. The pond was stagnant and would turnover twice a year. The water became murky and released an awful sulfur odor that travelled miles away. Dozens of complaints from neighboring homeowners forced us to find a solution to our pond problem. We tried chlorine, but that did nothing. We tried sulfuric acid, which cleared up the water and reduced the smell, but the pond quickly reverted to a murky, smelly mess as the pH level decreased. We even tried to drain the lake and refill with fresh water which brought on more complaints as the disgusting water travelled through the storm drains.
Finally, at the 2015 turf industry show we were introduced to Doug Hicks from Koender’s Water Solutions Inc. We purchased Nature’s Pond HD-450, a ‘bottom-up’ aeration system and Nature’s Pond Conditioner, an all-natural blend of beneficial bacteria, enzymes, plant extracts and a food grade dye which works to break down and consume organic matter in water. We buried the aeration unit by our nearest irrigation clock and ran airlines through a shallow trench to the lake. The ability to run airline was both cheaper and safer than running electrical cable to the pond. We used koenders 3-way valve to split the air into three different airstone diffusers in the pond. Once we had the air successfully circulating through the lake, we added the first application of Nature’s Pond Conditioner -- Ultra Concentrate. We poured the concentrate directly over each diffuser and allowed it to work itself through the lake. Now, 21 days later the smell is completely gone, the water is clear and we see further into the lake than ever before. We also see signs of life, as tiny tadpoles have appeared along our pond edges.

After a successful installation and seeing first-hand the difference the HD 450 aerator and Nature’s Pond Conditioner made on my pond, I give my full recommendation to any Golf Course Supers to try Nature’s Pond Care Program. Renew your pond with Nature’s Pond Conditioner and Revive it with Nature’s Pond HD-450 ‘bottom-up aeration’ - powered by Koenders Water Solutions. It really works!!"
