Construction of new all-weather practice tee

Following a competitive tender, MJ Abbott was awarded the contract to construct a new all-weather practice tee and pathway for long-standing clients The Grove. The design of the new practice tee was undertaken by the original golf course architect, Kyle Phillips.

The scope of work included:

  • Removal of existing tee
  • Topsoil strip
  • Preparation of base for tee and path
  • Installation of timber edging boards
  • Installation of Type 1 sub-base blinded with granite dust
  • Supply and installation of Huxley Premier Tee Turf 2 for the tee and Huxley Premier Leisure Turf for the pathway
  • Adjustment of existing irrigation system to accommodate the new tee
  • Turfing to immediate surrounds.

Phillip Chiverton, Course Manager at The Grove, commented: “In just two weeks, the entire practice area was transformed and is now drawing highly positive comments from all who know it and use it. I am happy to report also that the project was carried out on time, within budget and to the high standards of care and professionalism that The Grove has come to expect from MJ Abbott during an association that has now exceeded 12 years.”
