Sky TV choose European Golf to endorse British Open…
European Golf has joined forces with Sky Television to celebrate the broadcaster securing the rights to this year’s British Open.
The company’s artificial grass and hole design expertise have been put to good use in the creation of two bespoke putting greens at Sky’s headquarters in Isleworth, Middlesex.
The greens have been produced following a close collaboration between the two market leaders and built to a bespoke design on timber frames using European Golf’s revolutionary Nylon Tour Ultimate and fringe turfs.
They even include realistic-looking bunkers that use rubber crumb for the all-important texture.
Nylon Tour Ultimate is a revelation in synthetic golfing green technology, as the contours built into the artificial putting greens give exactly the same kinds of rolling speeds that would be found on a traditional golf course in the great outdoors.
Each green took just ten days to build and install at Sky’s nerve-centre.
“We were able to work with Sky on a very detailed brief about just what it was that they required,” said European Golf’s managing director David Lowe.
“There was a real understanding from both sides about how the greens could look which helped us complete the job so quickly.
“It’s been a real honour to work with Sky and help them celebrate their acquisition of the rights and the magnificent presentation that they will bring to the Open,” he added.
