Given our warming climate, reliance on rainfall places clubs at risk. When every drop counts Rain Bird helps clubs tackle water management and drive down the cost of ownership over the 25-year lifespan of an irrigation system. With Rain Bird as your irrigation partner, savings in power, labour, consumables and water deliver short and long-term ROI.
CirrusPRO™ mobile-first management software is a game changer for golf course irrigation. It has been engineered to help greenkeepers water smarter, delivering more freedom, complete control and better data.
Rain Bird is the world-leader in irrigation. Founded in 1933, the company manufactures the industry’s broadest range of irrigation products for golf courses, sports arenas, agriculture, commercial developments and homes in more than 130 countries. It offers a fully-integrated, end-to-end approach from reservoir to rotor. Dedicated and skilled golf sector staff work in partnership with architects, specifiers, club owners, managers, contractors and greenkeepers delivering new system, system extension and renovation solutions at courses of all types and sizes.
Rain Bird is committed to The Intelligent Use of Water™. Its Central Control Systems enable continuous two-way communication between the operator and all aspects of the irrigation system, allowing the software to continuously monitor and automatically optimise its performance. The course benefits from improved playability and agronomic health, while the customer saves money by minimising water and energy usage and reducing labour costs.
The IC System™ heralded a new era in irrigation technology. Simple and expandable, with no satellites, hubs (so 90% less wire), or decoders, it revolutionised the way water is managed on golf courses. It continuously monitors and optimises system performance, saving time and water. With real-time feedback, course managers have total control and can troubleshoot in minutes for complete peace of mind. All Rain Bird technologies are simple to operate. Clubs report having the IC System is equivalent to an extra member of staff.
Every golf course is different, but Rain Bird’s unique hybrid system solution suits almost all situations. There’s a huge financial advantage in carefully phasing renovations as it’s less disruptive to play, with costs and renovation work spread out over a longer period. Areas can be altered or extended, and holes upgraded to an IC System while one Central Control System operates both the upgraded areas and the remaining decoders.
Every Rain Bird golf product is engineered with Timeless Compatibility™ in mind, allowing customers to have a state-of-the-art irrigation system that can be updated or changed without existing equipment becoming obsolete. The Rain Bird Central Control is designed to work with any existing product installed previously as well as with all future technologies. Any Rain Bird irrigation system can be upgraded. Technologies from the 1980’s right up to the present day – satellite (hard wired), satellite decoder, decoder and IC – can be upgraded independently and controlled from the same central control software on one PC.
