Golf Irrigation Audit

The summer irrigation season is almost here. That means golf course superintendents will soon be applying valuable water resources to the course. It is the responsibility of all in the golf industry to ensure that water is used wisely. An audit of the irrigation system has been shown to be the most effective tool for maximizing water use efficiency. Irrigation audits consist of three main activities:

• Site inspection

• Performance testing

• Irrigation scheduling

Each activity in itself can result in significant water and cost savings. Together, these activities provide valuable information based on site specific conditions and irrigation system performance.

Special Offer - May Only

If you book an irrigation audit during the month of May I will be offering a special price; one acre (greens, tees or fairways) for $1,500, two acres for $2,000, plus travel expenses from Saint Louis, Missouri. Included in your audit report is a complete distribution uniformity test, pressure test at each sprinkler head, precipitation rate, irrigation scheduling worksheet and an evaluation of control system and pump station.

If you’re considering irrigation system upgrades or a new system in the future - now will be the time to save on parts and installation. I can work for you to secure the best in installation and products for the best negotiated price. I do not work with or for any irrigation manufacturer, distributor or installation company. My recommendations are not bias to any brand or irrigation company.

I have been a certified golf irrigation auditor for twelve years and a certified golf course superintendent for twenty five years; I know how to help superintendents maximize system components.

In this climate of public opinion a golf irrigation audit is the perfect way to document that your club is conscientious about conserving valuable resources. Call or email for more information on this valuable service.
