Player Proximity Systems (PPXS) is a suite of applications which recently won the Best New Product 2016 at the International Irrigation Conference & Exhibition in Melbourne. The system provides increased control over an existing sprinkler system. The application was developed in Australia to solve a problem of wind dragging sand from the bunkers of one of our countries best public access golf courses in Tasmania. On this links style course the sprinklers keep the sand damp in the bunkers which drastically reduces the amount of sand moved around by the wind. Unfortunately the sprinklers affects play through the greens due to overspray and players retrieving balls from bunkers.
Player Proximity Systems has been designed to work with your existing sprinkler system. It is entirely self contained and can be installed at your course within a few hours.
No longer will you need to plan your watering around the players.
You can keep your fairways and greens in top shape all year round because your sprinklers will automatically turn off when the PPXS members get near, then turn back on when they leave the area.
No more hand watering those bermuda greens during summer, and no more waiting to repair that fairway.
Water when you want.
Play it Clean
Golf course designers work hard to get a hole to play exactly the way they see it in their mind. The way the hole flows toward the green, the position of the bunkers, the cut of the rough. It all works in harmony to give you the most challenging and rewarding experience possible.
Now turn on a sprinkler... we know the grass needs water, but right now!
Of course you will play the hole differently if there are sprinklers operating.
Join PPXS and we will take the sprinklers out of play. When you step onto the tee any operating sprinklers on the hole will pause. As you move towards the green they might come back on to get a bit more water where it is needed, but as you get closer they will turn off again. Giving you that perfect experience of beautiful grass, and the ability to play a hole the way it was designed.
Playing beautiful greens in the middle of a hot summer is something you expect. Keeping the greens cool, and the grass growing is tough with players around finally PPXS has created the solution.
