Jayne Leyland shows seminar attendees trial plots at the Castle Course as Barenbrug’s 12-month roadshow reaches its final stop at St Andrews

Specialist grass seed breeder Barenbrug has rounded off its 12-month seminar tour of the UK by making St Andrews Links Castle Course the final pit-stop in its roadshow.

A year ago, Barenbrug took to the road to bring its expertise and practical experiences direct to turf professionals in a series of events held at key trial and customer venues.

The first pit-stop in the company’s year-long seminar programme was Druids Glen Golf Resort in County Wicklow, where the preliminary results of its groundbreaking Irish golf greens trial were revealed.

Since then over 250 greenkeepers, groundsmen and turf professionals have attended events at the likes of Manchester City Football Club, Carnoustie Golf Links in Angus, Scotland, and the London Golf Club in Kent.

Along the way, Barenbrug has lifted the lid on its latest trial results and practical findings, while also giving delegates the chance to gain firsthand insights from the host venue’s course and grounds managers, and benefit from the contributions of top guest speakers.

After stopping off for the penultimate seminar at Furness Golf Club in Cumbria, Barenbrug bowed out at the legendary St Andrews Links. With the greenkeeping team having recently paid a visit to Barenbrug’s second Irish trial site – Ballybunion Golf Club in County Kerry – for a seminar especially for Gordon Moir and his team, it seemed fitting for the ‘Home of Golf’ to play final host.

Commenting on the roadshow, research and development manager Jayne Leyland says: “A huge thanks to all who hosted, supported and attended these events – especially Gordon Moir and his team for helping us to bow out in style at St Andrews. All the events were terrifically well received and we can’t wait to hit the road again in the near future – we’re now planning our next run, so if any of our customers have a suggestion for an event, we’d love to hear from you.”

Call Barenbrug on 01359 272000 or email if you would like to suggest a roadshow pit-stop for the new seminar programme.
