"About 10 years ago we decided to try and reintroduce the traditional fescues that you would expect to find, back into our green. We have had excellent results with Johnsons J Fescue and every year the composition of our sward improves.Our Greens, Tees and fairways are now regularly overseeded with J Fescue as we have been so impressed with the speed of establishment the Gromax brings"
