Redmond Walsh - President at East Clare Golf Club

East Clare Golf Club employed the services of Greg Evans in October 2013. The background to employing Greg was that our Greens had deteriorated greatly over the previous18 months which was affecting membership numbers and Society bookings. The greens were slow during the Summer, and during the Winter and Spring were ravaged by fusarium.

Greg undertook an Audit of our Greens and produced a comprehensive Report detailing the issues which needed to be addressed to arrest the decline. The main issue identified by Greg was serious compaction on our sand based greens which he advised would take up to 3 years to correct. The Club then engaged Greg on a contract to produce a 3 Year programme to resolve all issues surrounding the Greens. We are now 9 months into this programme and the results are amazing. The Greens are now running at 9 on the Stimpmeter and we did not suffer any outbreak of Fusarium during the Winter or Spring.

Compliments from members and visiting golfers are now a daily occurrence. Greg is "hands on" and visits the Course on a regular basis to ensure that our new Greenkeeper is adhering to the plan. He has introduced a daily works programme for the Course Manager which is easy to manage. East Clare Golf Club has no hesitation in recommending the services of Greg Evans Golf Course Solutions as he has transformed our Greens in a very short space of time.
