Ahoy La Moye!

Ahoy La Moye!

Turf grower County Turf has ventured to the most southerly island of the British Isles, Jersey, to add another prestigious golf club to its list of satisfied customers.

Established in 1902, the 18-hole links type course at La Moye has previously been a PGA European Tour venue and boasts a distinguished list of honorary members, including Tony Jacklin CBE, who ironically was also born and bred in Scunthorpe, just like the turf!

This was the first time that the company has supplied turf to the Channel Islands and despite the complexity of the logistics due to the length of the ferry crossing and restriction of vehicles on Jersey, County Turf succeeded in delivering 5,500m² of its high quality County Fescue turf on schedule and in perfect condition, much to the delight of Course Manager, Richard Cutler:

“Following recommendation from industry colleagues, County Turf supplied us with their County Fescue turf which we have used on the surrounds and approach of three green complexes,” he explains. “I am absolutely delighted with the consistent quality of the turf we received. Each delivery arrived on time and in perfect condition and I wouldn’t hesitate to call on them again in the future”.

County Fescue is a very fine-textured turf grown from a pure fescue blend, with both cultivars placed top in the BSPB’s close mown tables. It is grown on North Lincolnshire’s natural sands which are very close to USGA specification.
