Paul Roche, formerly the National Golf Sales Manager at Rain Bird Corporation, and Matthew Mikucki, formerly the International Golf Sales Manager at Rain Bird Corporation, have formed an exciting new venture, Golf Water LLC, providing irrigation system designs as well as project consultation and management services to golf courses throughout the United States.
“After nine years in the manufacturing world, I am really excited to be back following my passion for designing golf course irrigation systems. The experiences I have gained traveling the country have given me greater perspective that I can use to help golf course superintendents. The need to precisely manage water, energy, and labor resources have never been more important. I look forward to helping design systems that will efficiently manage resources through the application of smart solutions and best design and management practices.” – Paul Roche, Principal
“I have spent the last 17 years working in the golf irrigation business. During that time, I have been able to visit thousands of golf courses and work with amazing golf course superintendents all over the world as a field service engineer, product manager and international sales manager. The knowledge and experience I have gained through my global travels and on-site visits allows me to provide a unique perspective as a golf course irrigation consultant. I look forward to bringing the experience, design, and management practices I have learned throughout the world to Golf Water.” – Matthew Mikucki, Principal
