As the budget allows, SubAir Elites can be added, two or three each year, to the rest of the golf course. SubAir Project Managers can assist in long range planning and strategy to ensure smooth installation over an extended time period.
To install SubAir, the course will need USGA specification greens or California style greens. No matter which SubAir product is chosen, the SubAir Operation Package is required to connect the drainage system to SubAir. These components can be installed during construction, during renovation projects, or while the course is open for play. Installation does not disrupt play and all the work is performed off the green so it will not interfere with golfers on the course.
“Our goal is to have a complete course of in ground SubAir systems, so we have started seeking approval each year for 2-3 systems and installing them on any new greens that are being constructed and then prioritizing which remaining greens have the greatest need. Until all our permanent SubAir systems are installed, we’ll continue to use our Air Force One on the other greens throughout the course. By managing the moisture control and gas exchange in the profile, the results/benefits we see are a stronger/healthier root system which is critical in surviving the intense Texas summers.”
