Golf Pathways on Par at Ladbrook Park

Here at PlaySmart, we pride ourselves in providing the UK’s very best surfacing solutions. But our repertoire extends far beyond servicing just school and park playgrounds.

We’ve provided for plenty of unique sites over the years, like the scenic Ladbrook Park Golf Course in Solihull. Having had the pleasure of working with them three times now, what exactly has the course required?

Golf Pathways with JungleMulch

A difficult task for many golf clubs is maintaining the pathways that go from green to tees, as players will typically take the shortest possible route. This requires a lot of maintenance throughout all weather conditions, including fixing the ground and reseeding certain areas.

The perfect solution to this was JungleMulch.

Before installation, PlaySmart carried out a site visit to measure the area and to advise on the groundwork preparation. In order to reduce costs, Ladbrook’s staff were happy to complete all edging and groundworks themselves.

From the range of blends and primary colours JungleMulch is available in, they chose Rustic Blend on the tee area, which consists of a red and brown mix. For the pathway, they chose JungleMulch Original, a blend of red, yellow and brown.

What did Ladbrook have to say about their finished golf pathways?

“We have used PlaySmart three times in the last three years for our pathways all exceeding over 175m2. The first path is now in its third year and still shows no sign of wear and it carries buggies as well as trollies.
Not only is JungleMulch pleasant to the eye and complements our grounds, our members all love the feel when walking on the surface, as they say it has a soft bouncy feel.

The surface is porous so there are no puddles or mud, it is therefore clean and low maintenance. By the current look of the surface, it seems it will last a long time and we feel we made an excellent choice.

We look forward to working with PlaySmart again in the future.”
