The West Lancashire Golf Club pride themselves on making sure they are improving standards all the time. So, when Course Manager, Stuart, started his role at the course 4 years ago he spotted some obvious improvements needed to the wooden sleeper steps around the greens, and they needed to be anti-slip.
The steps had become very worn, with some having old anti-slip materials on them, but some not at all.
It was also noted by the Health & Safety consultant that some sort of plan needed to be put in place, to not only replace the wooden sleepers but, also to increase the anti-slip area within each step.
Having previously used GripClad at another Golf course, Stuart had an idea of what the solution to the problem would be, and so recommended GripClad to the club as a company that could help them achieve the standards of safety they needed.
After a call with GripClad’s Director & Technical Advisor, Barry, they were able to decipher exactly what was needed to get the steps safe and looking good again. Not all the sleeper steps would be the same size with some of the small tees only having meter wide steps, but we were able to cut the material to the correct size leaving minimal waste costs.
The club has since embarked on a 4-year replacement program of their sleeper steps and each year the staff seem to be able to fit these quicker due to the fact that our GripClad product comes pre-cut to size and the screws and glue needed for fitting is also supplied.
West Lancashire Golf Club are now into their 3rd winter of step replacement and Stuart says:
“I believe not only do the new steps improve the surrounding areas but the GripClad product itself enhances the area as well as making it far safer in the wet, slippery conditions and therefore we look forward to continuing our relationship with GripClad.”
