Scout Features SubAir Systems
- Thursday, 25 September 2014 22:20
Scout features SubAir systems in their article summarizing this year’s Ryder Cup expectations. In the article, Scout mentions Gleneagles having “added the American Sub-Air drainage system for the familiar Scottish rains to make the fairways firm and fast and a special draining system for the bunkers first developed at Augusta National Golf Club”.
Gleneagles has installed one SubAir System at each green, which includes wireless sensors that report soil moisture, soil salinity, and soil temperature. The wireless sensors send that data back to the SubAir control panel and it identifies if the soil is within the optimum range for all major soil factors. If the soil is not within the optimum range, the completely automated SubAir System will make adjustments to change the soil temperature and moisture.

Because each green is unique, every SubAir System is programmed individually so that all of the greens surfaces are consistent throughout Gleneagles, allowing each green to maintain their individual optimal soil ranges no matter the altitude or other soil factors of each green. Ryder Cup players will face a consistent putting and playing surface throughout the tournament.
SubAir Systems are installed at each green at the Ryder cup, sensing increases in temperature and automatically blowing cooler air to lower the green’s temperature and maintain the optimal level. Consistency of the greens is key for the success of the Ryder Cup.

Of potentially more significance at a course that was too easily disrupted by heavy rain in the past, SubAir systems, which effectively suck water out of the turf, were installed beneath every green, while the bunkers were rebuilt with enhanced drainage… ‘It’s a course for everyone and it will also service and handle the Ryder Cup very well,’ said Nicklaus after overseeing the changes.”
