Golf course fairways drainage
As part of the preparations for hosting the British Masters PGA Championship, Woburn Golf & Country Club wished to make drainage improvements on two fairways of the prestigious Marquess Course, and chose the Turfdry Drainage System using Hydraway Sportsdrain.
Detailed site surveys were undertaken and tailored drainage designs were produced for the 3rd and 18th fairways, with Hydraway Sportsdrain at 4 metre intervals. Though greenkeeping staff undertake drainage projects in-house during the Winter, Head Greenkeeper Gary Leadbeater had heard favourable reports of the Turfdry Drainage System and appreciated the benefits of using a specialist firm, "The combination of modern equipment and experienced manpower enabled an intensive drainage system to be installed quickly with minimum disturbance".
The works were completed within a two week period in late autumn when the course was closed for other maintenance works.
"We gave careful consideration to the proposals submitted by Turfdry and to alternatives from other drainage companies, and we are very happy with the outcome".
