WODONGA and District Turf Club has completed the installation of its new irrigation system.
The project was started in February.
The new system has been installed around the course proper and sand track and includes above-ground sprinklers, a control system and new pump shed.
Club general manager Steve Wright said not only will it save water but also free track staff for other duties with watering the track previously a labour intensive exercise.

"They finished the installation on Friday and have done an awesome job," Wright said.
"It's going to save the track staff a lot of time especially in the summer.
"Previously the staff had to spend a lot of time after hours and on weekends moving lines around.
"So it's going to be a lot more efficient and save the club money as well.
"It was a big project and its a great result for the club."
The club will stage its next meeting on Monday.
