The Metropolitan Golf Club is one of Australia’s premier golf courses and is located on Melbourne’s world famous Sandbelt. It is renowned for its large, firm and fast greens that are hand-mown right to the edge of the greenside bunkers. The club is undertaking a major project to rebuild all putting surfaces over the next few years.
STRI Australia was appointed to provide agronomic advice and laboratory testing during this exciting project. The club had high expectations that the new putting surfaces would perform consistently and to the standard the course is known for. To ensure expectations were met the project required extensive planning and testing.
