STRI Advisory Report

  • bigpic

    STRI (Sports Turf Research Institute)
    is the UK's independent market leader in turfgrass research and is the National Centre for consultancy in Sports and Amenity turf.  They carried out an annual inspection in August this year and were greatly impressed with the condition of the course.  Highlights of the report are contained within the following excerpts from the executive summary.

    The full report is downloadable below


    • The course was in excellent condition with detailed presentation despite the difficult position during spring..

    • A slight increase in the organic matter content of the upper soil profiles of the greens has occurred.

    • Greens 1 - 4 & 16 - 18 are subject to increased traffic through evening and winter play, compromising the consistency of the surfaces.

    • Good capital expenditure in a new top-dresser and sweep 'n' fill brush will facilitate less disruptive top dressing appications. 

    Members are urged to read the full report via the link below as it shows once again how highly Largs Golf Club is rated by the leading industry professionals.

    During a recent previous visit the Inspector indicated privately that Largs Golf Club was placed within an elite group of four inland courses - Loch Lomond, Ladybank, Killermont and Largs which they regard as exemplary. Of that group Largs' readings showed as number 1.

    The greens team constantly seek excellence and are motivated by positive reaction and it is good to see their efforts acknowledged by a body such as STRI.

    Members are encouraged to spread the word that Largs Golf Club is in great condition and is here to make you feel most welcome.
