Bellerive Country Club host to the 100th PGA Championship, in August of 2018 installed this 7,600 sqft. practice golf green on their Championship Course. They were very pleased with the AirDrain System for Golf Courses and how quickly and easily it was installed.
After reviewing the findings of the “Comparison of Putting Greens Constructed with AirField Systems and USGA Design” (the five year research project was jointly funded by the United States Golf Association and AirField Systems and was a collaborative effort between Texas A&M, AirField Systems and the United States Golf Association) they decided to utilize the AirDrain Agronomic Natural Grass Drainage System for Golf Greens for this project.
