It is a relatively new strain of grass but it has already proved a hit with Ground staff and committee members alike for its resistance to wear, very low maintenance and its all year round colour.
Of course, what I am describing is not a natural grass but Huxley Golf's All Weather turf product Premier Tee Turf 2 (PTT2) which has been installed at arguably Golf's second home.
Wentworth Golf Club have chosen Huxley Golf's new Premier Tee Turf 2 high performance all-weather tee turf to enhance the year-round playing facilities on its superb practice range.
Julian Small, Managing Director, Wentworth Club, commented: "Our members enjoy practising on the new Huxley Premier Tee Turf. It’s the most realistic and innovative all-weather surface on the market.”
The key to Huxley Golf's Premier Tee Turf 2 is its exceptional fibre density and the ability to use a standard tee peg in what is as close as you can get to a true grass experience.
Green Keepers are turning increasingly to Huxley All Weather products because they know it will enable members to practice all year round without the loss of feel and playability that ordinary tee mats provide.
The PTT2 requires very little maintenance and because it does not require filler it can easily lifted, cleaned, rotated and replaced by Green Keeping staff.
Barry Huxley, a director of Huxley Golf, said: “We are delighted that such a prestigious customer as Wentworth Club is so pleased with our Premier Tee Turf. We installed this new all-weather turf on the practice ground at Wentworth in 2006 and it has stood up really well to constant use both from members and the club’s professionals. The new Huxley PTT2 turf is now proving very popular also with golf clubs throughout the United Kingdom and Europe who want to use the very latest low-maintenance all-weather turf on their golf course tees or practice tees."
