UK FIRST FOR THE DRIFT

The Drift has become the very first golf club in the UK to upgrade to Toro’s new Lynx irrigation control system software.
The 18-hole woodland course in Surrey was installed with a full fairways, greens, tees and approaches Toro Golf Decoder Controller (GDC) system last summer. However, the software controlling the irrigation hardware has since been upgraded from Toro’s SitePro system to a state-of-the-art Lynx system for improved efficiency and usability.
And with drought forecast for the south of the UK this summer, the new Toro irrigation system would certainly prove its worth. The club’s previous system, which was 30 years old, struggled to cope in the exceptionally dry summer of 2010, prompting the directors’ decision to replace it. Based on the improvements GDC has already brought about, Ben is excited about the additional enhancements the newly upgraded Lynx system will bring.
Robert Jackson, distributor Lely UK’s Toro irrigation national sales manager, told The Landscaper “Lynx software is faster, more intuitive and gives greenkeepers all the information they need to better manage their water and resources. When coupled with Toro’s popular and proven GDC hardware, Lynx makes irrigation and water usage more efficient than it’s ever been, plus it saves time, labour and electricity. “With severe drought and water restrictions on the way, The Drift will now be efficiently and accurately applying water and making every last drop count. Overall, I’m confident The Drift will reap the rewards of the club’s significant investment in the very latest Toro irrigation technology and achieve superior playing surfaces for its members. I look forward to hearing the club’s verdict on the Lynx system’s full benefits later this summer.”
