Today we held the official groundbreaking ceremony for our new, $1.7 million irrigation system at the Sugarloaf Golf Club. The new system will replace the existing one, which was antiquated and in severe need of an upgrade, according to Superintendant Bob Bruce.
“The old system was antiquated and beginning to fail,” Bruce said. “With the new irrigation system, we will be able to pinpoint the exact areas that need water, and avoid over-watering areas that don’t need as much. This will end up saving water and electricity costs, and will be much better for the course in the long run.”
The project will continue one hole at a time throughout the summer. For current project status be sure to check out our Course Report, which will be updates with the latest information throughout the summer.
