Dublin, Ireland: Campey Turf Care Systems supported two successful industry information days with machinery demonstrations of the award-winning Air2G2 and Imants shockwave.
AQUA-AID’s Eu Irish distributor, ProGrass Ltd, staged the gatherings at NAAS Golf Club, Kildare House and Castletroy Golf Club, Limerick Clubhouse.
Prograss’ Managing Director Gerard McEvoy was the organiser while the events were hosted by David Behan, Course Manager at NAAS Golf Club, and Aiden Hiney, Golf Course Superintendent at Castletroy Golf Club.
The aim of the undertaking was to showcase the AQUA-AID range of products alongside talks by Duco Van Der Veen from Mivena, and an explanation of organic matter control in greens from Harris Turf Improvements ltd.
Also contributing was Brian O’Shaughnessy from Campey Turf Care Systems, a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
The uptake of the AQUA-AID range has been positive across Europe and in Ireland with programmes in place at the Aviva Stadium, Croke Park and Dunmurray Springs Golf Club.
It was this interest which prompted Sam Green, AQUA-AID’s Chief Operating Officer, to travel from America to elaborate on the knowledge the Irish greenkeepers have already accumulated.
He said: “ProGrass is our distributor in Ireland through Hans De Kort at AQUA-AID EU, and has done very well for us in getting the product in the market and carrying out some initial trials.
“This is the reason I’m here now to further explain the scientific basis behind the positioning of our product lines in the market, and to support Gerard for all the effort he is making in order to help him expand his and our market share throughout Ireland.”
