At TPC Southwind, Jim Thomas, CGCS, purchased the Turf Drain Tarp System prior to tackling an in-house drainage project this spring. Jim hosts the St. Jude Classic presented by Fed Ex on the PGA Tour every June.
The tarp system saves 80% of labor needed to move the spoils, compared to using plywood and utility vehicles. In addition, the damage to the course during the project is drastically reduced, and allows him to get his course back into shape for the June tour stop. The Turf Drain Tarp System has been used by contractors on some of the finest courses in the country, and is available to golf courses for in-house projects.
The tarp system saves 80% of labor needed to move the spoils, compared to using plywood and utility vehicles.
Jim says, “The system can be easily learned in just a few days, and once the crew uses it, they won’t ever go back to the old-fashioned way of moving spoils.”
