Put out of action by flood water created by recent record rainfall the satellites, 72 in total, were replaced in time to enable course watering to be implemented at the start of the recent spell of dry warmer weather which has sent temperatures soaring to 30C° in southern England.

“Satellites, which control the application of water in selected zones on golf courses equipped with an irrigation system, are able to cope comfortably with seasonal rainfall,” said TIS operations director John Roberts, “but continuos immersion in deep floodwater caused the problems.
