Irrigation

Seve, irrigation and sustainability

Seve’s 9-hole course in Real Golf de Pedreña, to only irrigate tees and green complexes, aiming to minimize the area under irrigation. 30 years later, this is a tendency in golf course irrigation that improves sustainability and water conservation, making it be ahead of its time. Today, it is an honour to support the Club in the process of updating their irrigation system using up-to-date and efficient technologies.

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.

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.
