Speedcut sandbanding the driving range at Burgess Hill Golf Centre, West Sussex

Burgess Hill Golf Centre in West Sussex has just had its 28 bay two-hectare driving range sandbanded by Speedcut Contractors.

Sandbanding was installed across the range following sandslitting along the length which they carried out three years ago.

“The operations have greatly improved drainage on the range,” said head greenkeeper Damon Roberts. “Speedcut have always carried out a very efficient service for us.”

Speedcut contracts managerKevin Smithsaid: “Burgess Hill Golf Centre is in a beautiful location and we have a very good working relationship with Damon and his team.

“This sandbanding is tertiary maintenance to keep the surface performing at its optimal drainage level.”

Burgess Hill Golf Centre offers a championship nine-hole golf course and is home to the PGA Professional South Region Short Course Championships.

The course has USGA-spec greens, maintained to the highest of standards with ponds, ditches, and subtle undulation providing variety for those playing a sociable nine – and ideal for those focused on improving their game.

With the 28-bay floodlit undercover driving range players can practice from dawn to dusk regardless of the weather.
