Bury St Edmunds golf club, Suffolk
During exstensive bunker improvements, Bury St Edmunds Golf Club took the opportunity to improve the irrigation system to a number of tees on the course as well as adding some new tees. The design of the irrigation was carried out to the British Turf and landscape Irrigation Assocation guild lines with all tee sprinklers being placed down the sides and most being installed with two Hunter soloind valves. The installation of pipework was carried out using a Case 560 vibrating mole plough to a depth of 450mm cover, thus avoiding any trenching work and minimising surface disruption. Netafim Sports Pro pipe was used in various sizes, and Hunter I-20 & I-25 sprinklers were installed together with Hunter PGV valves. The bunker renovation work was carried out by Enviropro, this work also interrupted the fairway sprinklers which in some cases needed to be relocated and reinstalled. Some of the fairway sprinkers where changed from full cirle Toro 730 to part circle Toro 835s to avoid bunker wash out. Several new bunkers were also installed on the edge of the 18th green and the exsisting Hunter G75 part circle sprinklers were replaced with the new Hunter G85, which has the option of opposing nozzles to be fitted, which can be used to water the bunker face.
