Campey Turf Care Systems and GT Air Injection Air2G2 have jointly won the prestigious HSBC Golf Business Forum Innovation Award for the revolutionary Air2G2.
Glen Black receives the HSBC Golf Forum Award for Innovation.
The machine made it into the final five with the winner announced at the Forum Gala Dinner on Tuesday 29th November at the Marriott, TPC Sawgrass Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. The category saw applications from all over the world before going to a judging panel, with the award giving the industry the opportunity to recognise the great talent that’s driving the game forward.
Through its three probes injecting compressed air to either 6″, 7″, 9″ or 12″ (depending on probe fitted) deep from a lightweight unit, the Air2G2 has made itself an invaluable tool to every greenkeeper and groundsman that has used it.
Play can resume instantly on any area it works on because there is no surface disruption, whilst it’s also the perfect tool for use on areas that are too saturated for a tractor to operate on.
It has been the aim of Campey Turf Care Systems since its inception 30 years ago to provide turf professionals the world over with the most innovative technology available so they can produce the best surfaces possible.
This nomination goes some way to recognising that commitment, but also the fantastic work that Glen Black, owner, president and developer at Air2G2, and his team have done in America to bring this product to the market.
Speaking on the achievement Richard Campey said: “It is a massive honour for ourselves and everyone at Air2G2 to receive this award from the Golf Business Forum. Just to be in the top five is testament to the product and all it has done for those that have used it so far, so to actually take the top prize is fantastic.”
“Since the company started 30 years ago the aim has been to provide groundsman, greenkeepers and sports turf managers at all levels with the technology they need to further their maintenance programmes and take the industry forward, and as a company we want to continue doing that.”
The Golf Business Forum offers keynote speakers, expert panels, networking and industry recognition with the aim of connecting the global golf community.
