We also have done a lot of fairway contouring over the years. The contours add character and shot making to the course. In the picture below the irrigation head on the left hand side used to be in the fairway and the one on the right was on the edge of the right side of the fairway. This causes problems with coverage. The far right side of the fairway only receives water from the irrigation head on that side. However the area in between the two heads receives twice as much and there is a big difference in the amount of water the rough needs compared to the fairway.
Tees have there own issues, but we can keep them in check by hand watering. We send out 5 men every day to hand water. This allows us to put the amount of water we need, exactly where it is needed. There are other issues such as pumps, run times, coverage, and leaks that need to be addressed but for now, we are doing the best we can
