The entire drainage
system was conducted with no interruption of play for club members.
Part of the
solution involved the installation of 2000 linear feet of 12 inch
Multi-Flow in a modified herringbone pattern. The Multi-Flow was
inserted into an 18” deep and 6” wide trench, and then
backfilled with coarse sand on both sides. Each of the Multi-Flow
runs was tied into a graduated 4” to 6” central drain
line which emptied into a water hazard.
A heavy rainfall
occurred within a few days of the Multi-Flow installation and areas
on the 15th fairway that previously collected water, did not. The
fairway remained playable for the duration of the rainfall without
significant pooling of water.
summary, by solving the 15th hole drainage problems, members of
Carnmoney Golf and Country Club continue to enjoy a consistent and
reliable playing turf, even after rainfall.
