Golf Course Drainage System

Hydraway Drainage Systems from Intech Anchoring Systems can be widely used throughout a golf course. Hydraway can be installed in tee boxes, fairways, and greens to alleviate saturation problems that exist on most courses.

Facility managers are under persistent pressure to keep the courses healthy, attractive and ready for use. Heavy schedules and inclement weather conditions make this a major challenge because using courses during saturated conditions compacts the soil, which consequently threatens the turf.

Why Hydraway for Golf Course Drainage

Hydraway design allows the greatest amount of water inflow in the industry. Hydraway’s unique core design allows over 90% intake of water from all directions. Over 66 square inches per foot are open for water intake. If water has to seek holes to enter the drain, the system can’t fill up fast enough to move the water away effectively. Hydraway has no holes for water to get into. Underneath the heavy non-woven fabric is an HDPE core in a grid pattern that quickly allows water to enter and drained fast.

  • Faster drainage means keeping the courses available
  • Ease of installation as a simple trench machine will do the job or you can hire specialty turf contractors who have special equipment that will install Hydraway in a narrow 2” trench, up to 3,000 lineal feet per day.

Why Choose Hydraway?

Hydraway comes in widths of 6 and 12 inches with a standard length of 150 feet — but can be customized in a variety of lengths and widths.

Hyraway is an industry-leading, innovative technology designed for rapid dewatering of golf courses.

Golf courses have unique drainage requirements. Variable terrain, sand traps, different types of grass: All of

it should be protected with proper drainage. But whether installing a new drainage system or retrofitting an
existing one, it should have minimal impact on the land, and the game.

Hydraway drainage system has a unique design and installation process that is more versatile than conventional perforated pipe systems, ensuring minimal disruption. And with the industry’s highest inflow rates and compressive strength, you can be sure your course – and tee time – will be protected for years to come.

Unique Installation

Golf courses that use a classic perforated drain pipe system experience less effective drainage and run a risk of clogging or worse, failure.

Hydraway’s unique design and installation process are tailored for a green, fairway, or sand cap. We design and customize the system for your unique application. 

Our goal is your goal: Protect the course and provide a consistent experience for the players.
