Golf Students Get To Grips With Putting Green At The University Of The Highlands And Islands
Golf Management students at The University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI) recently had a unique opportunity to help install a new putting facility at North Highland College.
The installation, a 30ft by 15ft all-weather putting green from world-leading supplier Huxley Golf, will enable students year after year to practise their short game on a high quality, consistent and true surface, even when weather conditions would have traditionally put pay to any play.
Established in 2001, the BA (Hons) course in Golf Management at UHI, was the first honours degree programme of its kind in the UK combining academic and practical aspects to deliver a fully-rounded approach to a career in the sport. Students are at the college from September through to May each year, arguably the worst time of the year to expect to be able to practise outside. A real grass putting green was not a practical option for the University in terms of maintenance or cost and so Huxley Golf were approached to provide a solution.
Huxley Golf provides premier all-weather surfaces for golf around the world. Clients include training and coaching establishments, golf resorts, ranges and academies, as well as many well-known golfers and golf courses, including several Open Championship and Ryder Cup venues.
