From the Fairways - Hand Watering


During dry periods, we often hear the questions,Why do you water by hand? and Didnt we just install
a new irrigation system?
There are a variety of factors involved, and there is never a single factor that allows for concrete decisions
on how much water to apply with the irrigation system. Our goals are relatively simple; turf health and
proper golfing conditions. With those two things in mind, golfers and turf managers would agree that overwatering would be the wrong thing to do, although we sometimes make that mistake.

Ben McGargill
Superintendent of
Greens & Grounds

One thing to keep in mind is that irrigation is a supplement to rain. You and I might drink a Gatorade
or take a multivitamin, but these things will not serve as replacements for water and food. The Spring of
2012 was considered a very dry season right out of the starting gate. We have seen many days in which
evapotranspiration (ET) has reached .25. In other words, one quarter of an inch of plant available water
disappears through both evaporation and transpiration of the plants. Not only would it be impossible for
us to replace this amount of water in the overnight hours, it would also create very soupy conditions in
the top two inches of the soil profile if we tried. During drought periods, we operate at a significant deficit.

Another point to consider is the manner in which the soil accepts the water that is applied. Perfect coverage and infiltration is not possible.
If the golf course was perfectly flat, had a uniform soil type, identical internal drainage throughout, and only one grass type, we may be able
to get close. There is still one problem though, irrigation heads throw in a circular pattern; not a square pattern. Todays irrigation systems
do get us much closer to uniform coverage than yesterdays, but it is unlikely that you and I will see 100% uniform coverage in our life time.
When you see someone hand watering a knob in a fairway or a high shelf on a green, it is safe to assume that if we had watered enough
with our irrigation system to make that particular spot wet, the low areas around it would be entirely saturated or may even have standing
water in them. I encourage you to embrace our firemen and the hoses that we drag around, because it makes for better growing conditions
and better playing conditions. And remember, a little brown turf is not the end of the world as long as it isnt because it is too wet. Dry and
brown will often recover very rapidly. It is amazing what an inch of rain will do, even after a dry spell.
