The Green, Green Grass of Home

8.33am 25th June 2010 - New Products

Many homeowners shy away from covering their gardens with tennis courts and swimming pools, despite their sporting passions. Yet, your garden is the perfect place for cultivating your sporting talents. And, when it comes to golf, practice is the key.

A golfing area can complement your garden and increase the uniqueness and value of your home.  It offers an exclusive feature that will impress and entertain guests, whilst giving you a great place to grow your own golf skills.

Providers of putting greens, driving ranges and chipping stations to some of the world’s most exclusive golf clubs and professional golfers, Huxley Golf now offers a range of exciting installations for home-owners. Based on their high-quality, low-maintenance all weather surfaces, which are designed to act like real grass, beautiful bespoke greens can be created for your garden.

David Colclough, PGA Technical Lead for Coach Education, says: “We use Huxley practice greens at the PGA National Training Academy at The Belfry because they provide first class surfaces all year round with minimal maintenance.  Regular practice and quality tuition will improve your golf and being able to practise at home means you’re much more likely to easily fit practice into your busy life.”

Both you and your home could benefit from fantastic facilities, such as:

Although the thought of dedicating part of your well-tended garden into a sporting practice area can seem a little daunting, unlike the fixed size of a tennis court, golf practice greens are entirely flexible and can be sympathetically installed around your garden’s much-loved features. It is even possible to create bunkers and a new landscape as the turf can follow undulations and slopes.

Alison Nicholas, U.S Women’s Open Champion 1997 and European Team Captain for the 2009 and 2011 Solheim Cup, says: “By using high quality artificial turf, you get the realistic look and feel which blends in with the rest of your garden, but also provides the great surface that golfers can only achieve on a course or driving range.  I can thoroughly recommend Huxley Golf products to golfers of all standards who want to improve their game.  They have a superb range of training and practice aids.  We use them regularly at my golf academy and I also have a Huxley Putting Green and Huxley Rotanet at home.  The artificial surface means you can maintain it less and spend more time enjoying your garden, not having to look after it.”

With a Huxley green at home, you’ll be part of an exclusive crowd that includes the likes of golf celebrities Sir Nick Faldo and Ian Woosnam OBE, cricketing legend Sir Geoffrey Boycott and numerous other celebrities such as England football World Cup star James Milner. You can also be assured of a great surface that is the trusted choice of top golf clubs and associations around the world, including St Andrews and The PGA’s National Training Academy at The Belfry.

Huxley Golf have installed golf greens for putting practice worldwide, for a wide variety of properties such as front gardens of village cottages, back gardens of modern estate homes and even on balconies of Georgian terraces!  Other installations have seen practice greens located across the world in the delightful grounds of country estates, in beautiful open gardens with stunning sea views and on the side of mountains.
