“Whether they are big or small, young or old, all dogs have a place in the underdog calendar — that’s what makes it so special and why Rain Bird loves being a part of it,” said Matthew Corentin, golf specification manager, Eastern U.S., Rain Bird Corp. “It might not be the first dog calendar, but it’ll definitely be the best!”

It’s a playing surface that we’re producing and water’s the biggest part of that. Nobody wants to play on something that’s soft, everybody wants green, firm and fast. And there’s a very fine line to that.” — Stephen Rabideau, CGCS, Director of Golf Courses, Winged Foot Golf Club

This allows the Central to accurately apply just the required amount proactively to deliver consistent turf and playing conditions.
