MJ Abbott

Golf course drainage and irrigation


Expert integration of drainage and irrigation systems into any golf construction project

MJ Abbott’s drainage and irrigation teams work seamlessly with our golf construction teams to expertly integrate drainage and irrigation systems into any golf construction project.

Either as part of a golf construction or renovation project, or as a stand-alone scheme, we can design and install an effective drainage system to suit the requirements of the existing ground conditions and your budget.

We have specially adapted low ground pressure machinery for working on highly sensitive areas such as greens surfaces, and the depth of resources to carry out greens drainage projects within tight timeframes.


Multidisciplinary teams for cost effective installation

We are flexible in our approach to the design of irrigation systems, and are happy to provide a complete design service or to work with your own consultant.

Our installation teams are trained in other disciplines such as construction and drainage, and are therefore cost effective on a project where the programme dictates phased installations.

We offer products and systems from all manufacturers, and our expert irrigation installers can adapt your existing system to suit any modifications to the golf course. We are equally happy to work with your preferred irrigation contractor or your in-house irrigation technician if required.
