Optimizing water management through a full course irrigation audit

TPC Colorado

United States

In the mountainous region of the west, characterized by a high desert climate, effective water management is crucial. With minimal precipitation, living conditions pose challenges for both plant and animal life. In 2023, we conducted a comprehensive irrigation audit for the entire course.

Over 3000 individual sprinkler heads were inspected: removed from their casings, repaired as necessary, and then reinstalled. This thorough process resulted in a remarkable reduction in water usage, surpassing 25% compared to our five-year average.

By minimizing our water consumption, we can apply fewer inputs while maintaining the same high-quality results, thereby ensuring sustainable management of our turfgrass while maximizing efficiency.
