London, England: Hunter Industries, a global manufacturer of products for residential, commercial and golf irrigation, has entered a strategic partnership with OnGolf, to enhance golf course management.
This announcement follows news that OnGolf, the industry’s first cloud based decision platform for improving golf course management, recently added eight new system integration partners, allowing for a more robust, comprehensive management platform.
“Our alliance partnership with Hunter Industries is significant for both OnGolf, Hunter and the industry as a whole,” said Walt Norley, OnGolf Chief Executive Officer.
“Hunter is the first large irrigation company to join our platform, which is consistent with Hunter’s history of innovation, and their leadership in supporting disruptive solutions in the turf industry. They understand that OnGolf provides a holistic operating approach which allows all essential course management elements to be viewed and managed in one place leading to cost reductions while improving turf conditions.”
Hunter Industries, a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation, is known in the turf industry as an innovative product leader, offering cutting edge golf course irrigation since 1983.
This partnership enhances and expands their presence in the industry alongside OnGolf and marks OnGolf’s first major irrigation manufacturer partner.
With the addition of Hunter Industries to OnGolf Ready Partners, the platform will offer the most critical operating component to its roster of systems, irrigation. Through this partnership, customers will see relevant irrigation data along with key weather and soil variables all on one dashboard.
Golf course superintendents and managers now have the capacity to optimise water management with access to irrigation information remotely, on a browser, or on a mobile device.
Jon Truttmann, Hunter’s Director of Market Development, said: “The OnGolf decision platform is the perfect complement to the capabilities of our Pilot Control System. We believe in keeping the irrigation decisions in the hands of the superintendent.
“OnGolf assists the user in making sound, data based, irrigation decisions that can be implemented, in minutes, from a single screen, in the Pilot Command Centre.”
