Roehampton Club, located near Richmond Park, was founded in 1901 and was originally home to three polo pitches, a racecourse and a show ground. Today the private members club features a golf course, tennis courts and four croquet lawns. The club, which has hosted four World Cups, is regarded as one of the top international Croquet venues in the world and we welcomed the opportunity to renovate one of their prestigious lawns.
During the project we worked on lawn three. The existing turf was carefully removed and transported on pallets to the Golf course for reuse. The surface was cultivated and laser graded. Sports sand was spread and ameliorated into the existing soil to provide a suitable growing medium and to aid with surface drainage. The surface was laser graded for a second time. 6:5:18 fertiliser was applied and Tillers Turf Fescue / Bent greens grown on USGA rootzone installed.
