Irrigation Improvements

Last fall, we began a multi-year project of renovating the tee irrigation.  The original irrigation design had sprinklers spaced 80' apart, each of which used 45 gallons per minute.  Because of this, we were forced to irrigate a great deal of our naturalized areas in order to adequately water the tees.

The new sprinklers use less than 15 gallons per minute, and are spaced 40-45' apart.  This new layout is similar to what you might find on a course in the desert, and allows us to more accurately irrigate the tee itself, while conserving water.
The new sprinklers on #18, are able to target the tee, and not the Fescue.
