A step forward in efficient irrigation at Real Club de Golf Las Brisas

Last June we visited one of the leading golf courses at the Costa del Sol, the Real Club de Golf Las Brisas, to perform a comprehensive irrigation audit. The visit was carried out during the course maintenance week to not disturb the members while playing. Now it is time to work on an action plan that will be mainly focused on improvements in the pump station.

The design stage of the lakes’ hydraulic infrastructure project for Mijas Golf has been completed.

Due to frequent torrential rainfall events in this part of the world, and the inability of the existing infrastructure to drain and evacuate water effectively, Mijas Golf entrusted us the job to undertake a project for the renovation the lakes’ hydraulic infrastructure to improve the golf course resilience against flooding.

Turf reduction in golf courses

We went through the key points for a successful turf reduction strategy that allows for a reduction of the total irrigated area while improving the quality of the golf course and the golfer experience. All these, in a AEGG (Spanish Association of Club Managers) masterclass, where four members of the AEdG (Spanish association of Greenkeepers), contributed with their experience and vision in the matter.
