Fulwell Golf Club is a thriving, progressive club just 12 miles from the center of London and near to English Rugby Union's Twickenham stadium. A parkland course built with traditional push up greens, it boasts tree lined fairways and is of championship length. Immaculately maintained, it provides an enjoyable challenge for golfers of all standards.
The club purchased its first Wiedenmann machine in summer 2010 - a Terra Spike XP - and subsequently has gone on to purchase a further four Wiedenmann machines in as many years. Fulwell was one of the first venues to take delivery of the Core Recycler (June 2013).
Fulwell traditional has two maintenance weeks - May ad August - where the principal task is to hollow core fine turf areas using 12mm tines to a depth of 50 mm at spacings of 40 mm.
Prior to buying the Core Recycler, their best result was 1 1/4 hectares of greens and 3/4 hectares of tees/aprons carried out by a team of seven working flat out. In a perfect week they would aim to complete 18 to 19 greens and possibly two to three tees or aprons. Two hectares of output would be the best they could hope to achieve
In the first maintenance week using the Core Recycler with, on average, a team of 3 1/2 staff, output increased dramatically. They completed 20 greens, all 18 teeing areas, some of which have four or five separate tees (3/4 hectares of tees), 1.2 hectares of aprons, and a hectare of run offs. It took just that initial week for the Fulwell squad to become comfortable and competent operators.Features may include:
