Efficient drainage of surface and subsurface water on a golf course is critical to maintaining healthy turf on fairways, greens and high traffic areas. Saturated soil is problematic to both the health of the grass and the playability of the course. To facilitate drainage in low lying and water saturated area, French drains are often used to capture, intercept and channel the water to collection areas.
J•DRAIN drainage composites provide a lower cost, more efficient and smaller footprint alternative to the traditional French drain systems. Our aggregate free drainage systems are engineered to capture water and efficiently channel the water away. The three dimensional core creates a high compressive strength and high flow capacity drainage channel and the fused filter fabric prevents soil intrusion into the flow channel.

There are many design variables when preparing a layout for the various problem areas on golf courses. There variables include: slope of surface, length and width of area, type of soils, proper backfill, collector locations, discharge points, rainfall intensity and many others. Several design schemes are shown below.
