"We are a course that understands the importance of constantly improving. There were two deciding factors for selecting Rain Bird. The first was the ease of adding to the Rain Bird IC System™. The other deciding factor, and just as important, was the product support, of my primarily my salesman Alex Ludwig, and Rain Bird's GSP Team."

—Nick Pentz, Superintendent
