ATI prepared a control system renovation plan for the Serapong Course in 2014. The renovation work is ongoing and performed by Advance Tech Irrigation Golf from Singapore. The irrigation system renovation at the Serapong Course consists of:

  • Upgrade of all the sprinklers to the new Toro Infinity Series
  • Upgrade all sprinklers to individual sprinkler control from 2 – 3 operating together previously
  • New Toro Lynx central control system
  • New Toro VPe Satellites
  • New control system communication wire
  • New bare copper bonding and shielding wire to enhance the grounding

Advance Tech Irrigation Golf are “pulling” much of the wire to avoid damage to the turf and inconvenience to the golfers as much as possible.
