NatraTex Colour® surfacing
The Rolls of Monmouth Golf Club is located at the Hendre, Monmouthshire where it was once the childhood home of Rolls Royce co-founder Charles Stewart Rolls. The 6733-yard course offers spectacular views of the Welsh countryside and wildlife, making it one of the most outstanding golf courses in the whole of the UK.
With parts of the course Grade II or Grade II listed, it is important that any work carried out is in keeping with the estate's red brick and Bath stone.
NatraTex Colour® was specified to be used for the surfacing of the routes used by pedestrians, which were also required to support access for heavy vehicles for greens cutting and maintenance.
NatraTex Colour® Red was chosen as it is sympathetic to the estate with its red colouring.
It was laid on the 15th hole of the course, and stands out from afar but has the appearance of having been a part of the grounds since the Rolls family inhabited the Hendre.
NatraTex Colour® is a fully bonded, coloured hard landscaping material. It is made in the same way as its sister product NatraTex Cotswold®, but with extra coloured pigment added into the mix to give it a brighter finish.
NatraTex is an alternative to conventional tarmacadam, resin bound paving and other aesthetic hard landscaping materials, but shares similar characteristics with conventional tarmacadam being laid at the same depth and sub layers (base and binder course).
