A breakthrough has been made for a new golf course dressing material, based on a mixture of processed sand, made from 100% recycled glass, and garden compost, according to the Waste and Resources Action Programme.
Tandragee golf course where the compost/sand mixture improved the grass
Just weeks after spreading 3mm of the mix supplied by local company Natural World Products, the soil's condition had vastly improved as did the look and playability of the fairways, according to WRAP.
Tandragee Green Convenor Brian Fyffe said: "Since using the processed sand and compost mix the quality of the soil has increased, particularly underneath the divots. We have been very pleased with the results and will make sure we spread the mix earlier in the autumn to maximise its potential further."
