Abstract: The amount of water consumed is rapidly increasing due to factors such as population growth, industrial development, rapid technological progress. Although water is easy to access, the water resources are increasingly decreasing. This brings about the reuse of wastewater. One of the most important applications in the urban reuse of treated wastewater is the irrigation of golf courses. In this study, a questionnaire about irrigation criteria and reuse of irrigation was issued to golf courses located in Belek, Antalya province. The information obtained from this map shows the quality of the water used by the golf courses for irrigation, the times when the irrigation is required, the resources they meet, and the unit and payment for the irrigation. Process flow schemes and effluent water quality were obtained from the treatment plants in the Belek district. As a result, the required standards have been achieved for the wastewater in the watering of golf courses.
