Portmarnock Golf Club has updated its irrigation system with a Toro Lynx control system and 1,220 Toro Infinity Series Sprinklers across the site. Irrigating the course is now easy thanks to round-the-clock access to course conditions via apps to the new Lynx system.

Links manager of ten years Gary Johnstone thrives on the challenges presented by the course, saying it “keeps the job interesting”.

So when the club’s cable network started to degrade, leaving the old irrigation system unreliable, the club saw it not as an obstacle but an opportunity to update the system.

Gary explains: “We looked at all the irrigation products on the market over a two-year period to find out which company had the best products to suit our needs, and Toro was the clear winner.”

He continues: “Local contractor Aquaturf Solutions Ltd installed our Toro irrigation system and carried out the work over six months with minimum disturbance to the course, in a very professional manner.”

According to Gary, setting up the new system was simple. “With Lynx, it’s easy to set up specific irrigation programmes to meet the needs of Links turf. The control system is easy to operate and can be accessed anywhere via apps, allowing us to monitor the course’ water needs at all times. This gives us greater control over our irrigation management.”
