Lakelands Golf Course Trial The Javelin Aer-Aid System
– On a wet and blustery Gold Coast morning, KC Equipment and Sisis UK attended Lakelands Golf Course to demonstrate the new Javelin Aer-Aid air injection system. In attendance were a crowd of turf professionals from around the region. This event marked the first in a series of events KC Equipment and Sisis UK are hosting around Queensland, to demonstrate and discuss the bold new ideas presented by the Javelin.
The morning began with Sisis UK staff Toby Clarke (General Manager) and Ben Lloyd (Field Support) explaining the research and development that’s gone into this new kind of machine, before demonstrating its operation on the ninth green of the Lakelands course. Impressively, the green was immediately playable after the aeration.
“The Sisis Javelin Aer-Aid produces a uniformed pattern which ensures air is distributed evenly across the green,” says Toby. “This means better drainage, better root development and, in dryer months, better water infiltration. The air can be released at any depth up to 5″ (127mm) wherever required, if issues such as black layer exist.”
Lakelands Golf Course is one of the premier courses in Queensland, and is renowned amongst industry professionals for the quality of their greens. The grounds staff is led by Phil Soegaard, Superintendent, who is interested in trialing the Javelin. “We’re interested in what in can do to assist draining in our greens. We’re also keen to see what health benefits the Javelin can bring, in terms of response to disease control.”
Barry Moore, KC Equipment’s Sisis and Jacobsen specialist, was satisfied with the demonstration, and believes the system holds a lot of promise for the Australian turf industry. “The Sisis Javelin runs very smooth and quiet. It also has an optional range of solid, pencil and hollow tines, making it a versatile piece of equipment that can be used all year round.
