SGT Fine Fescue Triumphs in Drought

Royal Porthcawl is recognised as the Number 1 golf club in Wales with an outstanding links course.

The Club has hosted many championships including the Walker Cup, Ladies Open Championship, Curtis Cup, The Amateur Championship and The Senior Open Championship to name a few.

SGT Fine Fescue

"Barenbrug SGT Fine Fescue is currently our product of choice for links fairways. Following grass loss during the 2018 drought, we needed a seed mixture that would withstand prolonged periods of drought and heat. A discussion with Dave Greenshields led to us increasing our hard fescue usage and trialling new and improved varieties of this species. We have seen significant benefit in terms of grass coverage and feel confident that we are in a better position to cope with extreme weather conditions moving forward. 
It is great to see that Barenbrug have launched SGT Fine Fescue on the back of success at Porthcawl and other venues, in addition to the continued research and development that supports the product."
