Ambitious project at club

Five years ago, Dudsbury Golf Club say they embarked on an ambitious project to revolutionise the composition of their greens.

The decision to introduce ProSelect Riptide, a creeping bentgrass exclusive to ICL, was met with both anticipation and trepidation. Fast forward to today, and the club says their greens have undergone a remarkable transformation, thanks to the successful sward composition change.

Course manager, Warren Moss, said, "The greens are now in pristine condition year-round. The grass has a vibrant green colour, excellent ball roll, and exceptional disease resistance. It has significantly improved the playability of the course, making it a delight for golfers of all levels." 

Members of Dudsbury Golf Club have also been quick to note the positive impact brought about by the change. One regular shared that the greens used to be inconsistent, but since the switch, the course feels akin to a professional tour circuit. They said the ball now rolls smoothly, providing an exceptional putting experience. They were full of praise for the club's management.

The success of the sward composition change at Dudsbury Golf Club, they say, is a testament to the importance of innovative turf management practices.  Dudsbury believe the collaboration between themselves and ICL, serves as an example of how investing in advanced turf technologies can pay off in the long run. It not only enhances the reputation of the golf club but also attracts new members and visitors who appreciate the value of exceptional playing conditions.
