Since the beginning of the 2000s, Hørsholm Golf has dedicated itself to a year-long strategy to phase out the general Agrostis and first-year Poa Annua grass types and replace them with Festuca Rubra.
Agrostis and Poa Annua demand a lot of resources including fertilizer, pesticides, water etc. Festuca Rubra is more winter resistant and uses less water, fewer fungicides and requires less maintenance. Festuca Rubra has helped us to extend our golf season, which is a clear advantage for the players.
