Context

Adlington Golf Centre in Cheshire has undergone major construction works to create a brand new 9-hole par-3 course. With a new bypass rendering the old site non-viable it was back to the drawing board for David Moss, Owner and Managing Director.

As well as the new course, the 125-acre site also features a 40-bay driving range, 9-hole pitch and putt.

The site has been seeded wall-to-wall with Johnsons Sports Seed mixtures from DLF, which are delivering strong coverage as the course prepares to open to the public.

“When we built the previous Par 3 course in 2003, we used seed from DLF and that’s where my working relationship with John Hughes really began” explains David Moss. “With the new course constructed as a like-for-like replacement, John and I decided to stick with the same mixtures we had used previously in order to minimise the changes in both playability and appearance.”

MJ Abbott Ltd commenced the major works in May 2018 and by October it was ready for seeding – with Johnsons Sports Seed, J Rye Fairway and J Green mixtures. “While these are the same mixtures as we’ve used before, we now benefit from the improved cultivars thanks to the DLF breeding programme. J Green has always given us fast, true greens while the Rye Fairway mixture has proven to be very hard-wearing on the high-traffic areas. Both have continuously delivered strong colour for fantastic presentation. We are delighted with how the ‘grow-in’ phase has progressed, with reps, suppliers and the course architect alike, all commenting on the impressive coverage and appearance.”

“We have also incorporated some DLF Wildflower mixtures into the outlying habitat areas to add colour, diversity and interest.” Here, John recommended a bespoke mixture of species-rich grassland plus wildflower.

Testimonial

“With years of consistent results under our belts across the two courses and driving range, there was no question that we would turn to DLF to deliver the reliable results we needed on this project. The seed coming through strong, once again, means we’re on track for opening the new course this August.”
