Rough management- Replacing pop-ups

To progress further with the rough management programme we are replacing the fairway pop-ups that sit in the semi rough with part circle heads. At present the old heads rotate 360 degrees and water 20mts into the rough behind them. This is not helping progress with thinning the rough areas so these heads are being replaced with new part circle pop-ups that are set to irrigate the fairway only. We have permanently removed 11 heads that were in the rough at the 6,9,15th holes. We will replace 44 old heads with the new ones. There will be a considerable saving in water and run time for the fairways when they are on during the summer months. In the next few years the fairway system will be replaced but we can re-use these new heads on other areas in the future.
