Topgolf, the world’s biggest golf course, has added salt to the lake to add to its natural feel.
The salt is sourced from the salt water of the Salt River.
It is the first time the company has added salinity to a lake.
The salt, which is produced from brine, is also used in the water treatment systems at the resort, which opened in 2006.
The company’s chief executive, Jim Henson, said the new salt is part of the company’s long-term sustainability plan.
“We’re trying to get a lot of salt out of the lake and into the lake itself so that it has the most natural feel,” Henson told Business Insider in a phone interview.
“There’s no artificial, artificial salt, and it has to be the salt that was naturally found on the lake, which was the lake that the salt came from.”
The new salt comes at a time when Topgolfer’s resort has become increasingly popular.
The number of golfers visiting the property has surged from about 500,000 in 2013 to 1.3 million in 2019.
In 2017, Topgoland added salt ponds, a new golf course and an upgraded restaurant, which brought in $1.2 billion in sales.
The company’s chairman, John F. Shriver Jr., told Business in 2019 that the resort would soon start producing its own salt.
The Salt River Lake was one of the first places in the world to produce salt and the salt industry has flourished there since the 1930s.
“The first salt was made in Texas,” said Tom Parson, a geochemist at the University of North Carolina.
“It’s a very, very valuable resource.
Salt has been used for over 2,000 years in agriculture, in building construction, in medicine.”
In the early 1900s, it was the first salt to be brought to the U.S. by ships from England.
“The Salt Lake and the St. Johns are the only places where you can have a salt lake without having a salt sea,” Shriver said.
In the mid-20th century, salt became widely used in water treatment for the Stampede, the annual New York rodeo.
Today, the salt is used in all the water purification plants and water treatment plants at Topgos resort, and at the salt pond, which has been in operation since 2013.
Topgolf is one of several resorts that have started adding salt to their lakes in recent years.
In 2017, the Salt Lake City-based St. Louis-based Topgoline opened the largest salt pond in the U
