NEW, seen for the first time ever at BTME, is Tillers' Poa Greens turf.
Poa Greens turf is grown on USGA sand to ensure compatibility with the rootzone. But unlike a pure fescue/bent turf, Poa Greens is more compatible with older greens with a Poa/bent sward composition. This means that both the look and the speed of the new green will be similar to the other greens on the course.
Other highlights on the stand include our "often copied but never equalled" revetting turf, and our wildflower turf. Now in its fifth year of production, revetting turf is seeing increasing demand from links courses throughout Europe. And our perennial wildflower turf is being specified as a means of successfully introducing biodiversity on the golf course. On hand will be the avuncular Adam Pounds to answer any questions and to provide quotations.
Joining Adam will be Richard Owens, formally Course Manager at Boston West GC, who joined Tillers Turf in 2014 having won Conservation Greenkeeper of the Year Award. Richard, a keen environmentalist, will explain why Tillers Turf is a sponsor of the STRI Golf Environment Awards, and will show visitors how to maximise nature on the golf course.
