Organics case study - compost used in top dressing at Croham Hurst Golf Club
Croham Hurst Golf Club is an 18-hole parkland course situated two miles from Croydon. The course is situated above chalk, with good drainage for year round golf playing. Green keeper, Roger Tydeman, is responsible for managing the upkeep of the course. For the past three to four years, Roger has been using a blend of sand and green waste compost as top dressing to ameliorate thatch build up, produced by local supplier Banks Amenity. Green waste compost replaced peat in the product, with no noticeable difference in results and, in fact, the green waste compost has advantages over the peat in that it doesn’t form small balls which are difficult to work into the ground. Roger has been very pleased with the product and its results.
