Rain Bird® Golf unveiled a bigger, more interactive booth at the 2018 Golf Industry Show earlier this month in San Antonio, Texas. The larger booth enabled us to conduct more customer meetings and provide interactive demo stations for our latest products and technology. Overall it was a great success and we thank all of you who were able to attend!

The Rain Bird booth featured our “Total System Solutions” from pump station to sprinkler, focusing on the TRUE Benefits™ of a Rain Bird system:

Timeless Compatibility™

Every Rain Bird golf irrigation product is engineered for Timeless Compatibility, allowing you to have a state-of-the-art system that can be updated or changed without obsoleting your existing equipment.

Real-Time Response

Rain Bird offers continuous two-way communication, allowing for automatic optimization between your Central Control and the field. By receiving data and making instant adjustments when needed, you can protect your course from unforgiving weather and unexpected challenges.

Unmatched Quality

Throughout engineering, design and testing, Rain Bird’s mission is to deliver industry-leading quality to our customers. Our stringent testing procedures are implemented at the first launch of every product as well as regularly throughout the year, and they replicate the world’s harshest conditions.

Easy To Use

All Rain Bird products are engineered with the challenges of golf professionals in mind and designed to deliver everyday ease of use. From software interfaces to rotor designs, they help you and your crew find a quicker, hassle-free path to top playability.

Rain Bird’s exclusive “Hybrid Capabilities”were highlighted in the booth, with four (4) new interactive demonstration displays featuring Satellite, Satellite Radio, Decoder and IC System™.  Each display was simultaneously controlled from a single Rain Bird Central Control computer. Only Rain Bird offers this hybrid solution, allowing golf courses to complete phased-in or partial renovations and virtually eliminating the need for large one-time capital expenditures to upgrade a facility. It also makes renovations easier by eliminating the need to run different software platforms for mixed systems.

New system demonstration tables were also a big hit and allowed customers to view and experience first-hand the latest Rain Bird products and technology. Each station was built for interactive demonstrations of the Rain Bird IC System™; Cirrus™ Central Control; MI Series™ Mobile Controller and Rain Bird 500/550, 700/751 and 900/950 rotors.

Two (2) large touchscreen monitors again drew crowds with demonstrations of the powerful Cirrus™ Central Control software and its advanced mapping capabilites.  A few of the new central control features unveiled at this year’s show include:

  • Expanded map customization capability for Point-Shape background layers
  • Station Auto Locate / Jump to Station map feature
  • Insert a booster pump anywhere in the flow tree
  • Zoom level reference indicator shown on the map
  • User selectable import directory for older maps
  • Improved MI usability with Command Console entry method
  • Enhanced MI Status feedback

Prior to the Golf Show, Rain Bird provided a full day of marketing and sales training sessions for its sales and distribution. The Golf team also had a Distributor Awards Ceremony in which we recognized our exceptional US and international distributors.
Thank you to everyone who visited the Rain Bird booth and making it a great success! We enjoyed seeing all of you and look forward to seeing you in San Diego next year.
