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.
We visited Empordà Golf carrying a drone, 2 GPS equipment and a robotic total station. Teamwork combining drone technology with more traditional topographical methods allow us to complete the irrigation system & golf course topographical survey in record time, and therefore to reduce its cost.
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.
Destiny has made us a beautiful present and we visit the Real Golf of Pedreña, the home course of legend Severiano Ballesteros, to perform an irrigation audit.

A turning point in the Club’s water management strategy. We share details and particularities of the pump station at La Peñaza. A state of art pump station, digitalized and highly efficient.
We have carried out an intense and meticulous work together with the greenkeeping and irrigation team at RSHECC, so that the flow management by the central computer is carried out according to the reality of the existing system.
We are glad to announce that we are already working on the renovation project of the irrigation system at the Real Club de Golf de Tenerife; one of the oldest clubs in the Spanish geography.
Pablo Muñoz Vega highlights how crucial it is to perform an irrigation audit before any investment in a system is made – no matter how obvious the solution may be. This can be read also in page 80 of the october issue of the Golf Course Architecture magazine.
It is the right time to take a step forward towards a pump station of the future in Guadalhorce: smart, efficient, functional and designed to meet the specific needs of the golf course and its irrigation system.
We implement an optimization program for the irrigation system, which consists of the update of the whole irrigation software, a pump station audit, and the study of the highest efficient pump station that the resort needs to invest in.
