New Roller Bases for THE PLAYERS!

As the tents for THE PLAYERS are coming into the final stages, it is the agronomy team's job to make sure that all the irrigation heads that are covered up by the tents are still watering the areas they need to be watering. The conventional method used to go about this was to tap into the head with a hose and attach a roller base sprinkler. This method is effective but we have found a way to be more cost friendly and more visually please to both the golfers and the audience. The old method involved moving the temporary head into place at the end of the day and placing it back under the tent in the morning. The new temporary heads are fastened to the tent, making the watering process more convenient and effective.
