Trusted by golf course managers around the world, Rain Bird is singularly focused on irrigation and the management and movement of water. Course superintendents like Kevin Stott count on Rain Bird to provide the technologically advanced irrigation systems they need to perfect their playing surfaces and create elite course conditions.
“After running our existing irrigation for a number of years, we knew that it had become outdated and was not delivering the output that was required to maintain the golf courses at Carnoustie to their absolute best. When the team initially looked at this project, there was a strong desire to not only modernize the system, but also to make it more efficient and accurate, in order that it would improve Carnoustie’s sustainability credentials and contribute to our carbon net zero ambitions.
That being the case, a complete overhaul of the system was required, installing new water tanks, pump house and a brand new water source.
We worked with Adrian Mortram, Rain Bird and MJ Abbott to design a system bespoke to Carnoustie, delivering a system that could be managed remotely with accuracy and precision. Working with Rain Bird has allowed us to create an irrigation system that delivers exactly what we need in respect to water usage that will enhance the course and aid the Greenkeeping team to further improve the condition of the courses.
The new system provides us with the latest in irrigation technology, giving us much greater insights and data capture capabilities, meaning that we can make measured and informed decisions.”
