Every successful drainage project starts with a plan. Master Drainage Plans are a specialty of Turf Drainage Co. of America. We have planned projects at over 300 golf courses all over the United States, including many of America’s top 100 courses. Plans have ranged in size from as small as half of one fairway to a complete 18-hole master plan.

It all starts when you contact us for a consultation. We send a drainage expert on-site to walk your property with you and identify key areas of concern. We shoot elevations and record data, then crunch the numbers and apply proven principles of drainage engineering. Next, we integrate our patented systems and components to determine the best solution for your property.

The TDA Process

Once the plan is completed, you will have a clear picture of the best solution for your problem and a realistic appraisal of the cost and length of the project. With this information in hand, you can clearly communicate with your board or owner and arrive at a project budget and timeline that best suits your individual situation.

Many courses implement the project over a period of years which allows them to fit the work into their budget and never have to completely close to play.

Considering a drainage project? The best thing you can do is start with a proper Master Drainage Plan. You will be surprised with how affordable a professionally-prepared Master Drainage Plan is. Call us to discuss your project.

Mowing the day after 4.5″ of rain at Hound Ears Club

Hound Ears Club - Mowing 10 Fairway

Everyday is considered a great day here at Hound Ears for  the Golf Course Maintenance staff, but today has been marked and noted as one of the greatest of all.  My first daily routine as always, is to check the rain guages throughout the golf course property so that I will know what work decisions to make for the day, and direct the Golf Course Maintenance staff.  All the rain guages showed 4.5” of rain this morning.

 Ordinarily after receiving a rainfall of this size, we would do different job duties that keep us out of wet areas to not damage the turf.  (Read More)


Turf Drainage Company of America has been a leader in golf course drainage since 1983. We have four patents in the field of seepage drainage - including the Turf Drain Siphon System™. Whether you need to drain one hole or 18, we custom design a comprehensive drainage plan for your property, manufacture the components, and work with trained contractors until project completion.


Turf Drain Siphon System™

The Turf Drain Siphon System™ is the first drainage system where you can install drainage without the need to grade pipe. Piping can go over mounding or into an ungraded trench.

Turf Drain Siphon SystemIt has application in flat coastal properties where there is a need to take the water a long distance with little elevation change.

Any property where grading pipe may be difficult, such as rocky property or a course with lots of underground obstructions, can benefit from a Turf Drain Siphon System™.
