A 100% browntop bentgrass blend designed for overseeding and species exchange in golf and bowling greens
Our ongoing supplier agreement with Barenbrug for grass seed is valued. We always strive for the best, and the quality of product and support we receive is second to none in my opinion
The world’s best golfers will descend on the Auld Grey Toon in July and play on the hallowed turf of the legendary Old Course for the Claret Jug and the title of “Champion Golfer of the Year”. The hallowed turf may feel as if it has been there forever but is under a regime of constant maintenance and inevitable replacement, by means of divot fill and overseeding. For almost thirty years, St Andrews Links Trust has used Barenbrug grass seed for this essential work.
Fescue, Fairway, All Bent and Ultrafine products are key to keeping the Old Course in excellent year-round condition, which is no mean feat with 50,000 rounds of golf, a constant stream of caddies, and (literally) every man and his dog walking over the public ground on a normal Sunday.
Gordon McKie, Course Manager on the Old, is happy with how preparations have gone for the Major championship and commented on how increased bentgrass overseeding in recent years has improved density on the world-famous double greens.
Sandy Reid, Director of Greenkeeping, is looking forward to his first Open at St Andrews, after working several at Carnoustie previously. He stated, “Our ongoing supplier agreement with Barenbrug for grass seed is valued. We always strive for the best, and the quality of product and support we receive is second to none in my opinion.”
Barenbrug sends Sandy, Gordon and the whole team at St Andrews Links Trust best wishes for another iconic Open Championship.
