All-weather turf company Huxley Golf is helping European Tour Professional Marcel Siem to build a new golf facility in his native Germany.
In a drive to encourage more people to take up the game, and practice throughout the year, Siem has taken on the services of Huxley Golf to lay down the all-weather surfaces at a new academy in Germany which is set to open next month.
Siem said: “Practice is undoubtedly the key to success in any sport, and golf is no different. I installed a Huxley Golf green at my home in 2016 to enable me to practice my short game whenever I wished, even when my schedule meant I didn’t have much time or the weather was bad. I was, and remain, incredibly impressed with the realism of the surface compared to natural grass. It’s also been a real asset to my home as somewhere to have fun with colleagues, friends and family.”
Paul Chester, General Manager at Huxley Golf, said: “We believe that Germany will be an increasingly important market for our premium all-weather surfaces, with all indicators showing a healthy growing participation in the sport by women and juniors in particular. We can think of no-one better than Marcel, a national hero in Germany, and a fantastic ambassador for golf across the world, to work with and we look forward to it immensely.”
Marcel Siem joined the European Tour in 2002, having turned professional two years previously. He has won four European Tour events and has represented his country in the World Cup and won with Bernhard Langer. Visit www.marcel-siem.de
