Harleyford opens new greenkeeping facility

Harleyford Golf Club’s newly constructed and equipped greenkeeping facility has been opened by Richard Scott, the mayor of Marlow in Buckinghamshire.

“The new facility was designed to be both efficient and environmentally friendly,” said a spokesman. “Water from the wash down down-bays is recycled and reused, modern lighting reduces energy consumption, compost sites encourage green recycling and the introduction of ‘bug hotels’ increases pollinating insects.

“Harleyford has invested over £300,000 in new machinery. This new fleet will ensure that the course is maintained to the highest standard.”

Harleyford is the home club of touring professional Tyrrell Hatton, who has been a member of the club since the age of nine and last year played in the winning Ryder Cup team at Le Golf National in Paris. He regularly visits the club and discusses his ideas with the greenkeeping team.

The Donald Steel-designed course is set on a private estate by the River Thames in Marlow. Beautifully crafted in a natural downland setting, the 6,903 yard, par 72 course is both challenging and rewarding to players of all levels.
