Work on a new irrigation system for the Par 3 golf course at Yokota Air Base, Japan, is scheduled to begin Monday, but officials don’t anticipate an interruption in play.

“We don’t expect any delays on the golf course but we are reasonably sure that there will be some kind of closure on the driving range,” said Eugene McDaniel, Yokota’s golf course manager.

The course is currently watered by hand, he added, but the new $5.88 million irrigation system will “automatically water the greens and fairways and provide our customer a well-manicured Par 3 golf course. It should be really, really pretty out here once we get the system in.”

The system will be installed at the driving range beginning late next month, according to a 374th Services Division release.
