Coxmoor Golf Club with its storied history is located in Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire England. It is a rare par 73 (6,577 yard) private heathland golf course with tree lined fairways constituting a challenge fit for golfers of all levels. In recent years, Coxmoor Golf Club hosted a number of prestigious events including the regional qualifications for The Open Championship and the Seniors Open Golf Competitions. Under the watchful eye of head greenkeeper Kevin Atherton and staff, Coxmoor is among the top 100 inland courses in the UK.
The scheduled installation of the new irrigation system started much later than expected at Coxmoor Golf Club. With record rainfall early in the season, the schedule became even tighter for the crew at Coxmoor. As a result, it was imperative that the new irrigation system be quick and easy to install as well as have the traditional benefits of reliability, efficiency, ease of service and use.
For Coxmoor Golf Club the decision was straightforward - - - Hunter’s DIH (Decoder-In-Head) G875 and G885 rotors for the greens/approaches and AGC decoder control system with Surveyor 2 software. The DIH rotors offer total top access to all of the rotor’s internal components due to their exclusive and patented Total Top Servicing (TTS) features. Hunter’s DIH rotors also offer Total Top Programming (TTP) of the decoder’s station address, another patented technology from Hunter. With the unique DIH features, there was no need to disrupt the playing surface or disassemble the installed rotors in order to access the decoders. The AGC decoder control system and Surveyor central control software were easy to install and program as well. Together, the net result was a quick and smooth installation. This allowed the crew to regain much of the lost time resulting in a successful project commission.
The performance and great results provided by the new Hunter system at Coxmoor is serving to help keep the Club among the best in the British golfing community.
