Turnhouse Golf Club, on the west side of Edinburgh, are always looking to improve the golfing experience for their visitors and members.
Through the years they have made many improvements to the course and recently decided to tackle the age-old (and very common) problem of slippery steps around the golf course.
They had tried to tackle the problem previously, using various solutions, mainly cheap ‘quick fixes’, but none have worked long term, so they decided to look for a more robust, and ‘tried and tested’ way of fixing the problem, they looked at various products, but still weren’t sure what the best solution was.
So, they decided to contact GripClad who they had heard of through other golf courses over the years and had received good feedback from people who had used GripClad’s products before.
The Course Manager, Gavin, contacted GripClad’s Director & Technical Advisor, Barry, and discussed their problem and ways of correcting the problem.
“GripClad were a very easy company to work with.”
After gathering some advice from Barry on what was best for the steps on Turnhouse’s course, Gavin decided to order some GripClad cleats material.
“I gave Barry the dimensions of our sleepers and they did all the cutting for me so the product was ready to use when it arrived. The product is simple to use with and just a few tools – we used adhesive on the back of the cleat and then screws ever 12 inches along both edges.”
At the same time they refurbished their steps as well, with new timbers and infill.
“It was a great product for my team to use, so simple.”
Straight away they received very positive feedback from the membership saying how good the steps were and that the product enhanced the whole golf course. A few months on, and they are very pleased with how well the material has worked throughout the winter months, with no golfers slipping on the steps!
“We decided to get it fixed once and for all and we used GripClad Cleats, a fantastic product, I would fully recommend them.”
