Enhancing Practice Facilities: Crowborough Beacon Golf Club

Published: 12 June 2024

At Perfectly Green, we pride ourselves on supplying top-quality artificial grass solutions for a variety of applications. Our recent collaboration with Crowborough Beacon Golf Club in East Sussex is a testament to our commitment to excellence. The project, driven by Luke Jenkins, the Golf Course Manager, and executed by Gary Bateman, Maintenance Manager, involved fitting three new practice nets with our Diablo 35mm grass as the base surface. This blog outlines the details and highlights of this successful venture.

Project Overview

Crowborough Beacon Golf ClubCrowborough Beacon Golf Club, renowned for its picturesque course and top-notch facilities, sought to enhance its practice area with new nets for its members. An important objective was to provide the whole area with a  durable, realistic surface that could withstand the rigorous use associated with golf practice. Luke Jenkins spearheaded the project, emphasising the need for a high-quality solution.The choice of Diablo 35mm grass was made after reviewing the many landscaping grass options available from Perfectly Green.

After careful consideration, Diablo 35mm grass was chosen for the surface of the practice nets, providing an excellent base for the hitting mats. This particular type of artificial grass is known for its realistic appearance, durability, and ability to mimic the feel of natural grass.

  • Luke Jenkins says - 'We are really happy with the Diablo grass. Thanks for the advice on laying it as it went down very easily and the joins arent visble. It was the best price we had been quoted for the job and a higher spec astro turf than we were going to use origanaly. Im very please we went for the 35mm pile as from a distance and close up it blends in the the natural  surroundings of the golf course (which is really important for us). I would highly recomemnd your company and will be using you in the future for other projects'

Customer service has always been a priority for us at Perfectly Green, so we are always happy when you are!

Diablo artificial grass

Key Features of Diablo 35mm Grass:

  • Realistic Texture: The grass blades are designed to replicate the look and feel of natural grass, offering a true-to-life practice experience.
  • Durability: Made from high-quality materials, Diablo 35mm grass can withstand heavy foot traffic and repeated use, making it ideal for high-usage areas like practice nets.
  • Low Maintenance: Unlike natural grass, Diablo 35mm requires minimal upkeep, ensuring that the practice nets remain in top condition with little effort.

Installation Process

The installation of the practice nets was entrusted to Gary Bateman, Maintenance Manager at Crowborough Beacon Golf Club. His expertise and attention to detail ensured that the project was completed to the highest standards.

Installation Steps:
  • Preparation: The practice nets framework was constructed to create a stable structure and base for the netting, hitting mats, and new Diablo grass.
  • Laying the Grass: The Diablo 35mm grass rolls were carefully laid out and joined, ensuring a smooth and even surface.
  • Securing the Surface: The grass was securely fixed in place to prevent any movement or lifting, providing a reliable base for the hitting mats.
  • Hitting Mats: To enhance the functionality, hitting mats were laid on top of the Diablo grass, giving golfers a dedicated spot to practice their swing.
