La Moye Golf Club, Jersey

Construction of reservoir and installation of new irrigation system

La Moye Golf Club required the construction of a new reservoir for irrigation water storage and the installation of a new irrigation system. MJ Abbott negotiated the contract for the work directly with the Club via a successful design, pricing and interview process. The irrigation design was checked and the project managed for the Club by Adrian Mortram of Robin Hume Associates.

The scope of work included:

  • Design, construction and lining of a new one million gallon reservoir complete with aeration system
  • Transfer pipework and controls to 5 no existing boreholes
  • Construction of new timber pumphouse
  • 60m³/hr pump station designed and manufactured by MJ Abbott, complete with sand filter system
  • Installation of new incoming mains electric supply
  • Installation of mainlines pipework and replacement irrigation to greens, approaches, greens surrounds, fairways and tees
  • The system utilises Rain Bird irrigation equipment
  • The system includes Rain Bird Stratus 2 control system, weather station, radio remote control and Rain Bird lightning protection system.

Richard Cutler, Course Manager, commented: "MJ Abbott Limited have worked on two major projects here at La Moye; a full irrigation installation in 2007/8 and a three hole reconstruction project in 2011. On each occasion their highly skilled staff and consistently professional approach helped ensure that both projects were delivered on time, on budget and, most crucially, to our complete satisfaction."

MJ Abbott continues to maintain the irrigation system.
