New Yardage Tags On Every Sprinkler

 Last fall, we contracted with a company to come out and laser measure all of our sprinklers within 300 yards of any green complex.  We are happy to report as of Friday, all of these new tags have been installed out on the course.  A great big "Thank You" to our MSU Intern, Bryan Kiel, for making it happen so quickly.  Brian volunteered to work long hours in order to finish the installation prior to the Easton Cup last Saturday and Sunday.

Above: is a dated looking irrigation tag that would have been installed with the original irrigation system installation in 1994-95.
Below:  is a crisp, clean looking new tag after installation.
Below:  is a side by side comparison of the old and new.  Quite the contrast!!
