light up a golf course

To play golf at night, there must be sufficient illumination to illuminate, which places very high demands on golf course lighting. Illumination golf course lighting requirements differ from other sports field lighting.

The issues to be considered are different from other sports fields. The golf course is large, many times larger than other sports fields, and divided into many fairways. For a golf course with a par 72, there are 18 fairways.

The number of holes is 18; In addition, the direction of the fairway is basically one-way, and the adjacent fairways are mostly unidirectional, and the topography of the fairway varies widely, ranging from high to low.

The positioning of the lamp pole, the type of the light source, and the light projection direction of the lamp are obviously different from those of other sports fields, which makes the design more complicated and challenging. This article mainly elaborates on lighting design and lighting power supply.

Golf is an outdoor sport that makes full use of space. People walk on the grass and the ball flies in a space of 10,220m. So when considering the lighting of the stadium,

Not only should the player’s walking illuminance and the illuminance of the ball fall on the lawn be taken into consideration, but more importantly, the light of the court’s upper space should be as uniform as possible, and it will not make the sphere dim. In other words, using floodlighting,

Using one or more large-area light sources, or small light sources from multiple directions, makes the lighting soft and satisfies the visual requirements of the golfer, so that the light can be enjoyed under the light and in the sun.

For each hole, the tees are the primary area. The golf course fixtures designed here should try to make the ball and the end of the driver well visible to the left or right hand.

Does not interfere with serving. The horizontal illuminance is generally required to reach 100 to 150 lx, and the lamp is mainly based on a wide-distribution light projector, and lighting is performed in both directions as much as possible.

Avoid the shadow of the ball, club or player falling in the direction of the ball or hitting the ball, affecting the player’s vision.

When installing, the lamp pole is often installed at the back edge of the tees at least 115m. For larger tees, multi-directional golf range floodlights are required (Fig. 1). The mounting height of the tees is

Should be greater than or equal to half the total length of the tees, but not less than 9m. The installation practice shows that increasing the installation height will effectively improve the lighting effect of the tee, such as lighting with a 14m high pole.

The effect is much better than using a 9m low beam lighting
