Between 2008 and 2011 an ambitious project was launched for the replacement of the fairway and tee turf. All 27 holes were converted to Bermuda turf. The work was very quickly carried out thanks to innovative applications and after years of on-site testing. The selected grass, called “Riviera”, stands out for its fast “green up”, i.e., the capacity to take on a green colour after the winter months, and ensures perfect fairways and tees during the warm season.
The fairways, cut every other day to a height of 10 millimetres, are truly spectacular and highly appealing to players. It must be underscored that thanks to this transformation, the use of phytochemicals has been eliminated and the amount of watering required has been considerably reduced. Finally, autumn inter-sowing with perennial Lolium blends, ensures a lush green playing surface even during the winter months.
