Installation of new irrigation system

MJ Abbott secured the contract to install a new irrigation system at Gullane Golf Club following a tender and interview process. The irrigation design encompassing all 54 holes, and management of the tender process, was undertaken by Giles Wardle of Irriplan.

The scope of work included:

  • 388m³ capacity underground sealwall precast concrete storage tank measuring 22 metres long x 6 metres wide. The storage tank was supplied via three boreholes.
  • The pump station was designed and manufactured by MJ Abbott. Because of the height differences across the site, the pump station features 100m³/hr duty at standard pressure and 40m³/hr duty at a higher pressure.
  • Installation of mainlines pipework and replacement irrigation to greens, greens approaches, fairways and tees within Course 1 and greens and tees within Courses 2 and 3.
  • The system utilises Rain Bird irrigation equipment. 
  • The system includes Rain Bird Nimbus 2 control system and radio remote control.

MJ Abbott continues to maintain the irrigation system.
