In May, Turfgrass Consultancy were recruited by Rory McIlroy to project manage the construction of a new 3 hole academy and driving range in Northern Ireland. This work is ongoing and seeding took place 3 weeks ago. This has germinated very well and already the greens with creeping bentgrass are at a height of 6mm. This will eventually be reduced to 3mm creating the same surfaces as found in Augusta National. Turfgrass Consultancy has employed the services of a golf course superintendent to manage the academy.
Golf Club de Genève recently commissioned Turfgrass Consultancy to complete an audit of their golf course. Our brief was to assess the current course condition and to recommend opportunities for improvement. These recommendations are currently being implemented and we are delighted to say that the club has also now chosen to extend our close working relationship by retaining our agronomy services to consult on golf course conditioning and tournament preparation.
