Pop-up Sprinklers for Golf Courses

Pop-up Sprinklers for Golf Courses are available at Aqua Hub in sizes of ½ and ¾ inches. We are among the best Pop-up Sprinkler Suppliers in Kenya. Our lawn sprinklers are quality and affordable.

Golf courses generally consist of healthy and green lawns which require a lot of water throughout the year. For uniform lawn growth and coverage, irrigation is imminent to curb the shortage of water during dry and inconsistent rainfall periods.
Generally, golf courses need water at higher flow rates or volume per unit time so that enough of it reaches the soil. Since pop-up sprinklers irrigate at relatively shorter times compared to other surface irrigation methods, water loss to evaporation is avoided.
The quality and growth of various types of lawn will be affected by the amount of water supplied to it.

Factors that affect irrigation of Golf Courses

  1. Pop Up Sprinklers in Kenya by Aqua Hub Kenya
  2. Soil drainage – The infiltration or water retention ability of your golf course is questionable to determine the rate of irrigation or model to adopt. Soil with less water holding capacity requires more irrigation frequencies plus more water.
  3. Grass type – Lawn species such as buffalo
  4. Topography – The landscape of a lawn field determines the rate of water distribution and irrigation systems to use.
  5. Season – For rainy seasons lawns have enough water for growth, hence lower demands for irrigation.
