Carnoustie Selects Hunter After Testing All Major Brands

Founded in 1839, Carnoustie Golf Links holds a legendary status within the golf community. Today, Carnoustie consists of three traditional Links courses that play host to visitors from both home and around the world. Carnoustie's Championship course is among one of the select few to host The Open Championship, the oldest of the four major championships in professional golf.

The Challenge

As it is such a prestigious site in the golf world, it is mandatory that all three Carnoustie courses are kept in immaculate condition year round. With frequent strong winds, sandy soils, and an immense amount of traffic, it is imperative that the site’s irrigation system provides reliable, exact watering to every inch of the courses fine grasses.

The Solution

In the year 2000, after testing the rotors of every golf irrigation manufacturer on their practice green for a year, Carnoustie decided on Hunter's G800 series rotors based on their outstanding performance in all conditions. They also allowed for easy service and installation with Total Top Service (TTS) and Decoder in Head (DIH) technology, which allow all serviceable parts of the head and the decoder to be accessed through the top of the sprinkler.

The Result

The Hunter system has stood the test of time, and helped the courses maintain their elite status as one of the world’s most prestigious golf facilities. Carnoustie managers like the Hunter products and service so much, that they have continued to order and test new Hunter Golf products as they emerge. Carnoustie is one of the first courses in the world to get their hands on the Pilot Central Control system and G885 rotors featuring the most powerful gear drive on the market.
