ROYAL BIRKDALE GOLF CLUB saved 25% on water consumption during the last year’s heatwave, thanks to the services of Toro.
The timing was perfect for Royal Birkdale Golf Club as it turned on its new Toro irrigation system in April 2018, just before one of the hottest summers the UK has experienced for decades.
As golf courses fought to prevent their turf from being burnt brown and water costs rose accordingly, the club was in the fortunate position of having efficient irrigation.
“The time had come to replace our system,” says Chris Whittle, who has been course manager at the prestigious club for almost a quarter of a century. “We had a Toro system that had always served us well, and Lynx was the obvious choice. No sooner was it installed than it was put to the ultimate test!”
