Huxley Golf Proud To Partner With HCEG

3.11pm 26th November 2021 - Course Development

The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers at Muirfield commissioned Huxley Golf to create an all-weather practice tee of the highest calibre for what is one of the world’s most prestigious clubs dating back to 1744. Known for its masterful layout and stunning location, the course remains as challenging today as it ever was. Having hosted the Open Championship 16 times, it will continue to make history when it welcomes the world’s top female golfers for its first AIG Women’s Open Championship in 2022.

The Huxley Golf team, led by Hugh Fraser for this project, replaced an existing hard practice area with a new and expansive all-weather one, measuring 12ft (3.6m) by 138ft (42m). The company’s renowned Premier Tee Turf 2 was used to update the facility to be the best that it could be. This surface has an exquisitely dense pile which provides an attractive and hardwearing surface that is quiet, comfortable and realistic to play off. The installation was carried out on schedule in just a couple of days and, of course, golfers could enjoy the facility immediately.

Course Manager, Colin Irvine, commented, “We pride ourselves on the quality of our facilities and service and are focused on ensuring that members and visitors alike have an enjoyable and memorable time, every time they visit. That’s why we have taken the opportunity to update our practice area, thus ensuring that the customer experience on all aspects of our beautiful course is second to none.

“I had not worked with Huxley Golf before but I knew from my industry peers that the company has the best all-weather golf surfaces on the market so I was confident they would be the perfect match for us here at Muirfield.

“I am absolutely thrilled with the result. It looks good and it plays well. I have no doubt that our members and visitors will appreciate the exceptional quality of this specialised golf surface which offers a realistic grass-like feel to the golfer.

“I was also delighted with the overall service delivered by Huxley Golf. From initial enquiry through to completion, I received efficient, reliable and friendly support throughout. Huxley Golf has my unreserved endorsement, and I would be pleased to call on them again.”

Hugh Fraser added, “It was a great privilege for us to be selected by The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers to help the team there realise their ambition for their practice area which I’m sure will help to draw generation after generation to this most revered sporting venue.”

For over half a century, the name Huxley has been synonymous with premium all-weather golf surfaces and products. Endorsed by the UK’s leading golf organisations as well as many legendary golfers and celebrities and their coaching teams, the Hampshire-based company’s artificial golf surfaces are in use all around the world at top-flight courses, resorts, and training academies.
