Real Sociedad de Golf de Neguri

Likewise, the modernization of the irrigation system is already 70% completed in order to achieve greater consistency of play throughout the year. In this line, we have relied on Surtec for the development of several projects that allow us to deal with these actions, whose results are being very positive for the maintenance of the field and the satisfaction of our members.”
