Charleston, South Carolina, United States: The National Golf Course Owners Association (NGCOA) has renewed its annual corporate partnership agreement with Rain Bird Corporation, a leading global manufacturer and provider of irrigation products and services.
Through this continued relationship, Rain Bird will continue as the exclusive irrigation provider in the NGCOA Smart Buy Marketplace purchasing programme’s Agronomy category. The partnership also includes sponsorship of NGCOA’s annual Golf Business Conference, Multi-Course & Resort Operators Retreat, and new Golf Business RevCon event.
Rain Bird will also become one of the founding sponsors of the Top Resort Officer centre on NGCOA’s soon-to-be-launched new website.
“NGCOA’s members have been very pleased with the rebates, products and customer service they’ve received from Rain Bird through the NGCOA Smart Buy Marketplace,” said Jay Karen, NGCOA’s Chief Executive Officer. “Rain Bird has also supplied our members with irrigation education, which not only benefits their businesses but the industry as a whole. We’re delighted to be able to continue this valuable relationship.”
NGCOA members will continue to receive exclusive rebates on Rain Bird Golf irrigation products. Rain Bird’s Total System Solutions provide complete integration of components, making them easier to manage and more efficient to operate than mix-and-match solutions, resulting in water and labour expense savings.
“Rain Bird is proud to be NGCOA’s corporate partner,” said Stuart Hackwell, Director of the Golf Division at Rain Bird, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation. “Rain Bird is very excited to continue to work with NGCOA golf course owner and operator members.
“We strongly believe that the innovative Rain Bird product line will meet the needs of member golf course owners and operators while saving water and energy. We support the NGCOA Smart Buy Programme and believe the associated benefit will add significant value for NGCOA members.”
