Anglo-Portugese alliance bears fruit for one young greenkeeper

Twenty-three-year-old Portuguese national, Henrique Ferreira, has spent just several months at The London Golf Club. During a break from his studies, at agronomy college in his home country, he has been assisting golf courses and estate manager, Lee Sayers. Headland Amenity works closely with his employers, Belas Golf Club, as well as The London Golf Club, and was very happy to see this young greenkeeper gain valuable course preparation experience in the UK.

Henrique came to London in April and his experience of using Headland Amenity products helped him fit right in! “Lee and the team included me in all of the daily tasks,” he explains, “from raking bunkers through to cutting all areas. I have also been involved with feeding, working with Headland Multigreen slow release fertiliser.

“The biggest difference I have found between greenkeeping here and at home is the aeration programme – how frequently it is conducted and how it makes such a big difference to the quality of the course. All in all I have learnt a great deal and have to thank the whole greenkeeping and landscaping team at The London Club, for such a great experience.”
