PondHawk® and The Federal Club Celebrate 10th Anniversary with Special Event

**Glen Allen, VA – June 18, 2024,**— Ten years ago today, the first PondHawk system was installed on the “green monster” at the Federal Club in Glen Allen, Virginia. To mark the success, PondHawk® by LINNE Industries announced today that they will celebrate the 10-year anniversary of The Federal Club’s installation on June 26, 2024 at 11 AM.
 
The Federal Club’s pioneering use of PondHawk® was a groundbreaking step forward. It marked the first-ever installation of this innovative system on any golf course in the United States. Anne Gail Jennings, Managing Partner of The Federal Club, and Ryan Holbrook, Golf Course Superintendent, have played key roles in the club’s achievements and environmental initiatives. To honor their commitment, PondHawk® is celebrating their leadership in the use of sustainable practices.
 
The focus of the day will be celebrating the Federal Club’s commitment to environmental sustainability. “Over the years, the club has implemented numerous green initiatives, from daily moisture readings for water usage management to native areas that require  very little inputs and promote wildlife habitats”, says Ryan Holbrook, Golf Course Superintendent. “When combined with our other water management practices, PondHawk has made the Federal Club stand out as a leader in sustainable BMPs.”
 
“The “green monster” is a perfect example of what PondHawk can accomplish when installed in even your most difficult water feature.” says Sandra Burton, LINNE’s President and CEO. “We thank Anne Gail Jennings, Ryan Holbrook and others for their willingness to try a new breakthrough technology to solve a frequent problem found on golf courses. By bringing in a small company to solve this big problem, The Federal Club demonstrated their commitment to
being an environmental leader. This collaboration shows how we can promote sustainable practices in the golf industry.”
 
Since 2014, PondHawk® has been tending to pond problems on golf courses throughout North America. As part of a sustainable water management program, every day, PondHawk® improves water quality, adds dissolved oxygen and circulation, and reduces odors without electric power costs. A complete summary of all the highlights and accomplishments with PondHawk® over the last ten years can be found here.
