Brays Island Irrigation System Replacement

Planning for the irrigation system replacement project at Brays Island Plantation began in October 2009 with establishment of the projects goals. The process moved forward with the system design completed by AS Altum & Associates in September 2010. Following a RFP process, Nutt Construction was selected to complete the installation. IGM has provided support and oversight throughout the process and will serve as the owner's resprentative throughout the installation. The project start date is scheduled for April 11, 2011.

The system will feature the newest technology in golf irrigation with a Rain Bird Integrated Control (IC) System and the use of High Density Poly Ethylene (HDPE) pipe. The overall scope of the project includes complete renovation for all eighteen holes including driving range, putting and chipping greens.

A blog has been created to not only document progress of the installation but also provide useful information that may help limit any interference the project may have on player's enjoyement of the course.
