Stay Ahead of the Competition

Andrew Read, ( PICTURED RIGHT )  course manager at Longridge Golf Club in Lancashire has praised Everris, part of the ICL Group, for helping the club keep ahead of the competition.
“A few people I had spoken to had recommended the iTurf programme from Everris so I had some samples taken and then arranged to meet Henry Bechelet (PICTURED) from the company. Together we went through all the samples, drew up a detailed programme and then started the iTurf programme. It has just been fantastic for us – the greens have never looked so good.”
Andrew now uses SierraformGT Spring Start 16-0-16 and he has now said goodbye to inconsistent results.
“What we experienced in the past is that we had so many peaks and troughs. Where you feed the greens; they will grow like mad, so you’re cutting and emptying all the time. So then you go slower and then after 3 or 4 weeks that feed will go down. And that is just how it was – slow, fast, slow, fast, but with the Sierraform Spring Start, it is just a constant speed all the way through. It’s not slowing or lushing; it simply kicks in and is perfect for the greens.”
SierraformGT Spring Start has been designed for use on high quality, fine turf throughout the year. Each granule contains conventional and slow release nutrient sources for consistent and sustained release patterns meaning that users no longer have to endure the ‘peaks and troughs’ that Andrew faced.
To maximise the results from Longridge’s greens he also uses Greenmaster Pro-Lite Double K granular fertilizer; a product he is particularly fond of.
“Going into autumn, I’ll apply some Greenmaster Double K. This is just to give them a bit of strength and to fight off any diseases. It is fantastic – especially the colour it gives you. They look too green sometimes particularly in winter but that’s what you want. The members absolutely love it.”
