Give your players the great playing experience they deserve!
There are approx. 40,000 managed golf courses worldwide, using an estimated 2.5 billion gallons of water every day. Individual courses can use up to 1 million gallons per week. This represents a significant cost to courses in terms of water and irrigation power.
In addition, governmental water restrictions are increasing in many parts of the world, as are environmental pressures to be responsible with previous limited water resources.
Soil Scout ground-breaking technology enables the continual monitoring and profiling, regardless of season or conditions, and the tailoring of turf care based on the specific conditions on each hole.
Having accurate and real time information about your turf enables better and more timely turf management decisions, and thus your course will be in better condition.
- Wireless real-time insight where YOU want it below the surface
- Reduce irrigation by up to 50%
- Maintenance free for up to 20 years
The Soil Scout solution consists of variable elements, depending on customer needs.
Tangible Benefits for Golf Courses
Optimal decisions on irrigation, fertilising and other maintenance with insignificant effort and reduced manual measuring
Water and energy savings of up to 50%
Decreased fertiliser runoff and reduced ground-water pollution
Lower irrigation equipment maintenance costs
Immediate insight on performed irrigation, vertical water infiltration and possible layering
Opportunity to maintain turf moisture optimally low to reduce vegetative growth, mowing work and grass residue
Enables proactive operations based on late fall, winter and spring conditions; e.g. snow covered warm turf predisposed to pests & mould
Looking-glass through snow cover and soil surface: modify Fall maintenance in proportion to true levels of frost, enabling earlier season openings
Superintendents can show evidence to shareholders and society of responsible resource use (water, energy and fertilisers)
Give your players the great playing experience they deserve – on optimal and uniform turf!
