Molinari chooses european golf green

European golf was the company of choice for Edoardo Molinari’s golf academy in Italy. We was delighted when asked to create a indoor putting green for the three time European tour champion.  Edoardo asked for specific hole positions and a customised shape to fit the facility perfectly. Understanding the importance of a perfect putting surface, is European golf’s strength and we knew our Euro tour-putt would be required for this green. Its a non directional nylon that stimps on an average of 9.4 and gives the truest of rolls.

Scoring Lowe at The Famous Nine

The Famous Nine is a replica par-3 course in Cornwall, which boasts some of the worlds most famous golf holes, all built using synthetic turf supplied and installed by European Golf.
Scott MacCallum spoke to managing director, David Lowe

We’ve all done it…. Or is it just me? Lying in bed at night trying to get to sleep I battle insomnia by picking my
perfect golf course.

Not just my favourite place to play the game, though, but the best 18 holes
pulled together like a dream team of footballing Gallacticos. I’ve normally got to the turn with nine holes carefully selected when I nod off.

A little bit of fun but nothing more than that. How could you possibly play all the best holes in the world in the course of one round? It’s an unrealistic fantasy. Or is it?
Many of the holes which feature in your dream course may also have made the cut at The Famous Nine, a superbly conceived par-3 course at Gwel an Mor, Cornwall, high on the north coast cliffs, near Portreath.

Opened in September of last year the nine hole course enables you to play those fantastic holes, but in miniature. The course is only 1,241 yards long with the longest hole 177 yards and the shortest just 106.

The beauty of it is that not only do you get to travel around the world playing the best that St Andrews, Augusta, Pebble Beach, Carnoustie, Troon and Sawgrass has to offer without having to deprive yourself of the best cream teas and pasties around, it will take you a fraction of the time it would to play 18 holes at your home course.

The other element which makes the course unique is that it boasts a full set of artificial greens which, from an operator’s perspective, reduces maintenance costs considerably.
Installed by European Golf, regarded as the go-to company for artificial turf for golf, the course is the first in the country to use Challenger Turf, from US-based company Challenger Sports Solutions.


“We’ve just signed an exclusive five year agreement with Challenger to become the company’s sole UK supplier and distributer,” explained European Golf director, David Lowe.

Famous Nine to open Cornwall’s Gwel an Mor resort

A new nine-hole golf course is to open for play this week at the Gwel an Mor resort in Cornwall, UK.

The course has been designed by David Cooper, the PGA professional at Remedy Oak Golf Club in Dorset.

The new course features all weather greens and tees, supplied by UK-based European Golf.

A number of the holes are inspired by iconic holes on other courses. These include homages to St Andrews, August, Royal Troon, Sawgrass and Carnoustie.

The course has been designed with the aim of attracting both experienced golfers and newcomers to the game.

The Gwel an Mor resort sits on Cornwall’s northern coastline, just south of the town of Portreath. The sea can be viewed throughout the Famous Nine.

More than 250,000 tons of earth was imported to create the course’s levels and undulations, while 20,000 tons were dug out from the site to complete the course’s water features.

The Famous Nine is to open on 27 September 2017.

New Nottingham adventure golf course

A brand new 18 hole adventure golf course installed with artificial grass greens has recently opened at Highfields Park in Nottingham, where each hole reflects a local theme.

LazyLawn supplied over 1200 square metres of Grass Park, Nylon Pro and Wonder Yarn 26, which won the Which? Best Buy Award in 2016, at Highfields Park Adventure Golf.

Over 1000 people visited the golf course at the launch during the May Bank Holiday weekend.

The golf course has been installed as part of a multi-million pound project to restore Highfields Park. The project will also include a new boating house by Highfields Lake and new croquet lawns and bowling greens at the park.

The golf course has been designed with local Nottinghamshire themes in mind, including Robin Hood, Sherwood Forest, the City of Caves, Beeston Lake and the football and cricket sport teams.

Jordan Foster, Site Manager at Highfields Park Adventure Golf said: “Our first weekend was very successful, with people commenting on the local design of the golf course. Visitors also mentioned how good the quality of the LazyLawn surface is. The golf course will be popular with families for some summer fun.”

Josh Bartlett, Project Manager for Highfields Park, said: “I have worked on many golf courses with my team. This one in particular was fun to work on because of the local themes design. The location is also fantastic and the project to revamp Highfields Park will help to attract more people to the area.

“LazyLawn is ideal for golf courses because it is resilient and durable under all weather conditions. LazyLawn doesn’t become muddy or damaged in bad weather like natural grass does.”

Nottingham’s Highfields Park welcomes pitch-and-putt golfers

Nottingham's Highfields Park
Nottingham’s Highfields Park

This weekend you can take a few practice swings then set your shoulders and eye the next pin at Nottingham’s biggest 18-hole opportunity outside the Wollaton Park and Bulwell golf clubs.

But you can leave your woods and irons at home. A supplied putter is all you will need at Highfields Park Adventure Golf, the newly-landscaped pitch-and-putt challenge whose opening this weekend marks the latest stage of the upgrade of the popular park.

Situated in Highfields Park off University Boulevard, alongside Highfields lake and Lakeside Arts complex, and overlooked by the imposing buildings of the University of Nottingham, the attraction is expected to pull in 1,500 players on busy summer weekends.

A crack at all 18 holes will cost £7 but if you can’t spare the hour or so needed to complete the course, £4.50 buys you nine holes. There are concessions for children and seniors. “It’s a competitive market but we’ve got a bit of experience,” says developer Dave Lowe of artificial grass specialists Showcase Greens. “We have set up courses in London and Warrington and their success has helped pay for this.”

The operators have the 2,500 square metre site on a ten-year lease from Nottingham City Council and a £250,000 investment has seen the creation of a covered reception pavilion, serving drinks and snacks, the 18 holes – mainly par two and par three tests – and landscaping which reflects local themes. You will see a timber sculpture of a Wollaton Park stag, the cricket stumps and large football representing the Trent Bridge sporting neighbourhood and even a reference to the pool that was once a feature of Highfields. And, as a nod to the neighbours, sculptures of textbooks and mortar-board academic caps. There has been interest from the neighbouring university campus, and talk of a student pitch and putt league.

Dave and business partner Josh Bartlett bring to the party not only a lot of know-how with artificial grass, but also a love of the sport. Josh was a member of the Seacroft club at Skegness and Dave has rubbed shoulders with the greats of the game. He has crafted artificial greens for Darren Clarke and Nottinghamshire’s Lee Westwood, and for passionate amateur golfers like former England footballer Michael Owen and former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan.

Dave will be kept in day-to-day touch with the project by site manager Jordan Foster, who happens to be his stepson. Jordan’s girlfriend Laura Walton-Taylor is also part of the team and another recruit was due to join the staff this weekend.

European Golf in Cottingham tees off with UK first…

Golf PuttingEuropean Golf in Cottingham is creating the country’s first full-sized golf course covered entirely with artificial grass.

Using specialist synthetic ‘grass’ handpicked and imported from Arizona, the nine-hole course is being painstakingly laid to ensure it offers the same consistent ball speed and ‘true roll’ expected of ‘real’ grass, as well as being able to withstand any conditions the British weather can throw at it.

Company founder David Lowe said though the deal was unique, he believed it could open the door for similar contracts at sites across the UK.Putting artificial golf course
