     While everyone is gearing up for golf to make its return to the Olympics this summer (which start this Friday), Toro has been at the course for months. Providing a fully integrated irrigation system with 2,200 sprinklers, 1,000 Precision Series spray nozzles and wireless soil monitoring sensors, the state-of-the-art system should help deliver optimum play conditions while reducing water and energy use. 

     "As superintendent of an environmentally sensitive golf course, it is very important that we are able to put the right amount of water on the course when and where we need it," said Neil Cleverly, the course's head superintendent.

     And Toro has a track-record with major championships; those include U.S. Women's Open at CordeValle Golf Club in California (irrigation); British Women's Open at Woburn Country Club in England (equipment); BMW Championship a The Wentworth Club in England (equipment and irrigation); U.S. Senior Open at Scioto Country Club in Ohio (Toro equipment and irrigation).
