Golf Course Industry, Thursday, June 6, 2013 – I recently attended the American Society of irrigation Consultants (ASIC) – yes, there’s an irrigation consultants association – annual meeting in Scottsdale, Ariz. And since ASIC was in Scottsdale, they invited Sean Emerson and Jeff Plotts to talk about how they irrigate their courses from both a water-quality and a water-quantity standpoint. Sean, director of agronomy at Desert Mountain Club, oversees six 18-hole courses using some 2-million gallons per acre annually on a combination of warm- and cool-season turf. Jeff has the same position at TPC Scottsdale, overseeing 400 acres at a 38-hole resort/public facility utilizing warm-season turf.
