Precision Irrigation for Vietnam’s award-winning Hoiana Shores

The Rain Bird® IC System™ and rotors with CirrusPRO™ control were chosen as being the best option for irrigating what is a delicate site, allowing for layouts to be changed easily with minimal excavations.

Responsive, Flexible Irrigation Delivers Uniformity

“We’ve amended our irrigation process and saved hours of staff time. Previously, I had two people hand-watering for six hours, four days a week, so that’s fifty to sixty hours a week saved, and that’s been one of the most significant benefits. With the new system in place, grass cover hasn’t been lost at all this year and we’re now seeing grass recover, even with the recent drought.” — Course Manager, David Coull

Challenge Tour venue renovates irrigation to improve water efficiency

“When we started thinking about replacing our 30-year-old irrigation system, it was clear to us that it had to be a system that offered the latest technical capabilities and used our water resources efficiently. It quickly became obvious that our nearly 30-year-old satellite control system could no longer keep up and what Stock Beregnungstechnick and Rain Bird proposed with Rain Bird® IC System™ technology convinced us immediately. Having the ability to control each sprinkler and give each area of the golf course exactly the amount of water it needs means no more wasted water and also means a saving in electricity costs for running pumps, which is not insignificant given the rising price of electricity. All these benefits, combined with fantastic work completed by Stock Beregnungstechnick have given us an irrigation system that allows us to look to the future efficiently and without worry.”
