Case study: Home golf course, Cambridge
Fresh air, exercise and a bit of good natured competition, indeed there are lots of things to like about golf. Thousands of kids and adults across the UK hit their local course every week, with The BGIA reporting that “the number of golfers in Great Britain who play on a full length course remains just under the 4 million mark”. That’s a pretty impressive number by any stretch of the imagination;
Now, unless you are lucky enough to live next to a course – or have a few acres to spare in the back garden – this is one sport that is not always easy to practice at home. However, this didn’t deter a homeowner from Cambridge, who decided to build a personal golf green for her husband. Unique, imaginative and extremely useful, this domestic golf green has transformed the garden of this private home, giving both the husband and wife a space they can enjoy in the process.
The first step in building this personal golf course was to lay a 100mm layer of Type 1 stone together, with a 50mm layer of granite chippings. This firm surface would give the green a smooth, even appearance and flat playing surface, two things that are essential for any golf course. Once the base layer was complete, we laid Evo Pro Sports Grass on the surface, completing the manicured look. Longer pile grass was added to the ‘rough’ surrounding the green, to give the course a more realistic look. Extra holes and flags can be added to the course if the homeowners want to alter the set up.
Both clients were extremely pleased with the finished result. Not only is the miniature golf course a gift that will keep on giving, but the installation of the green has transformed their outside space and given them a garden they can really enjoy.
