Ferneley’s dairy farm adventure golf course

In the summer of 2021, we built Ferneley’s dairy farm adventure golf course a 9-hole farmyard theme adventure golf. With each hole being unique and filled with spectacular farm props that are enjoyable for all age groups.

Some of the props include a real vintage tractor, milk cart, chicken hut, pig troughs and wooden carts. With it being based on a farm authenticity was our main goal with the course overlooking picturesque views & fields of cows and sheep.

All golf greens are shaped differently with obstacles getting more difficult each time, which gives our customers a fun challenge when participating in the course. Ferneley’s adventure golf course consists of;

Hole 1: Ferneley’s Fairway
Hole 2: You have got to be yolking
Hole 3: Pig Swill Fly
Hole 4: Legend Dairy
Hole 5: Hey Ewe
Hole 6: Messy Ferguson
Hole 7: Hole ya Horses
Hole 8: Spilt Milk
Hole 9: The Inside Scoop

Ferneley’s adventure golf has brought prospect to their other businesses within the farm and has helped them expand and diversify their business even further.

New Year, New Green

Active golf projects first installation of the year consisted of replacing a DIY golf green for one of our short game greens.
Our customer contacted us towards the end of last year explaining to us that his Son is now looking for something to really sharpen up his short game at home and that the current surface wasn’t up to the job.

We removed the existing green surface, sharp sand and replaced this for 10 tonnes of granite aggregate to create some customised contours and levels to the green.
We installed our AGP short game pro system which requires shock pad underlay, and 38mm fringe grass and rounded black/green blend silica sand for top dressing.
Once the green is dressed and levelled we then rolled the green to set the stimp-speed to 9.

Our customer and his son can now chip to the green from any distance using our tee line chipping mat and Practice there putting to perfection.

Home practice facility for Macclesfield customer

We have been busy since the recent restrictions have allowed us to get back to work safely. 

We were asked to install a 30m2 outdoor golf green in their garden, practice net, timber sleeper retaining wall and a lawn area that can be used for chipping along with general use. 

The project started by excavating the area and preparing the trenches for the sleeper surround wall. The sleepers were all fixed in concrete prior to the 30 tonne of aggregate being brought in ready to be shaped and compacted. 

The putting surface was installed first which is cut to shape ready for the fringe grass to be cut and glued to. Once all the surface is cut ready, we apply sand dressing to our surface which is mechanically brushed into the pile of the grass and is then ready for use. 

This was a great project to have done and one that our customer was extremely pleased with having had a complete garden makeover he can no enjoy his garden all year round.

Home Putting Green Stoke

European golf recently completed a 30m2 outdoor putting green on the outskirts of Stoke.

The green was constructed in two days and it wasn’t a straight forward project as the access was challenging. 

There were three different tiers in the garden and of course the green needs to be on the top tier. Our installation team were prepared though and the process was a success. 

To construct the outdoor green, timber sleepers were used around the perimeter and concreted into position. We then used aggregate to build and shape the green base. Type one stone and fine dust is applied to create a smooth perfect Surface for the putting green to be laid. Holes are cut and placed into the base, these are set in key areas on the green to optimise the amounts of putts using the contours and levels.

The grass is then laid ready to be shaped and glued together before be sanded making it instantly ready to use. 

The customer was delighted with the look of the green and performance of the surface. The green has been built in front of what will be a garden room office and once all completed will make a fantastic facility.

Installation taken place in Balne – North Yorkshire.

European Golf have just completed the construction of a TPC Sawgrass Green. A total of 180 m2 has been installed on a Par 3 Golf course.

A total of 160 tonne of aggregate was used to build up the levels and contours for the green.

We installed solid hardwood sleepers to raise the green in a replica Saw Grass Style. I think you would agree it looks amazing.

This is part of a 4 hole par 3 course @ Holly Tree Farm Golf Club. The customer will now be hitting 100 yard tee shots from 6 different pin positions.

We have also installed circular chipping pods, at short distances as part of a short game addition. 

We hope this is the first of more greens to be added to the par 3 course.

Essex – Stanford Le Hope

European Golf has just completed a outdoor putting green to a garden in Essex

No access to the customers back garden on this job which meant a crane was hired to get all materials into the garden. Anything is possible!

An 80m2 Golf Green with 5 holes for a golf fanatics garden.

We installed 30 tonne of aggregate, to build the base work and contours on the putting green. A Nylon Pro Putting Surfaces was used with a 30mm fringe grass.

Synthetic Putting Greens mimic natural grass on golf greens and a lot easier to keep maintained and to a high standard. This improves the quality of putting practice and can be used all year round no matter what the weather. The materials used will ensure that the putting green drains all the time and no pooling or standing water.

The more practise you put in, the better your game will become.

Indoor putting greens Active Golf Projects News

Molinari chooses european golf green

European golf was the company of choice for Edoardo Molinari’s golf academy in Italy. We was delighted when asked to create a indoor putting green for the three time European tour champion.  Edoardo asked for specific hole positions and a customised shape to fit the facility perfectly. Understanding the importance of a perfect putting surface, is European golf’s strength and we knew our Euro tour-putt would be required for this green. Its a non directional nylon that stimps on an average of 9.4 and gives the truest of rolls.
