Carbrook Golf Club using the UBIMET Weather Cockpit

Carbrook Golf Club, Queensland

At Carbrook Golf Club we have been using the UBIMET product now for 12 months. There are two areas that we specifically find beneficial – the first being a daily weather report that we send to 5 of our management team. This report also gives us a 3 day outlook which has proven surprisingly accurate. This helps enormously with our forecasting and also alerts us to the possibility of bad weather. 

The second area that I would highly recommend is the lightning alert. When a lightning strike is detected within a radius of our Club we have 5 of the management team alerted by email and sms. This provides us with the ability to then monitor the situation and make a decision on whether to evacuate the course or not, both for the safety of our staff and golfers. This is highly beneficial from a WH&S (workplace health and safety) standpoint and allows us to be pro-active  and in control of a dangerous situation, rather than re-active.

As a medium sized Club we have received great value and it is now a important element in our operations. I would highly recommend other Clubs considering the UBIMET product.
