Liphook GC's new pathways are a big hit

LIPHOOK GOLF CLUB has made some improvements to their course that will improve both the golfing experience and its aesthetic appeal.

The club has installed new pathways around the clubhouse and throughout the course utilising the Blinder Eco Path system which has been developed out of recycled rubber crumb.

The change arose after course manager David Murdoch, began searching for ways to improve the course and he decided to put in the extremely environmentally friendly and hard wearing Eco Path surface.

“I worked with Blinder Eco Path on the order and nothing was too much trouble, even though we were working on another project at the time and as a result, the spec changed while we were in negotiations,” explained Murdoch.

“The installations process itself was extremely impressive with the order of over 400 square metres being completed in a day.

“The great thing is that it looks so natural and people do mistake it for woodchip in resin and, particularly where we have it going through the trees it looks fantastic.”

Penny Long, of Blinder Bunkers, added that this type of path had been developed to help clubs in an area that they often face difficulty.

She said: “Everyone who sees the new paths are extremely impressed with them and it offers a solution to an area where many clubs struggle.”
