Andy, who has been associated with Rotherham Golf Club for 15 years, is committed to upholding the course’s prestigious reputation. With a dedicated team of six members of staff, he ensures the greens are in pristine condition, utilising Mansfield Sand’s MM35 Golf for top dressing. “We use MM35 Golf from Mansfield Sand because we think it is the best top dressing for the greens – and certainly the most compatible,” Andy explains.

“Every fortnight through the growing season, we apply a light top dressing of 5 tonnes. In the spring and autumn, we do a heavier top dressing, applying 30 tonnes each time.”

Mansfield Sand’s MM35 Golf, a pure silica sand sourced from the company’s Two Oaks Quarry, is renowned for its benefits, including improved recovery, firmness, smoothness, and an enhanced rootzone. “We use it mainly for smoothing the surface out,” Andy notes. “It helps drainage and the overall health of the grass.”

Andy’s relationship with Mansfield Sand spans his entire 21-year career as a greenkeeper. “We’ve had a really good relationship with the company over the years,” he says. “Louise Barrington-Earp, our rep at Mansfield Sand, has been really good. Louise visits us regularly and is always available on the phone if ever we need anything. If I ever need advice, Louise is quick to offer their assistance.”

Rotherham Golf Club’s use of MM35 Golf underlines the product’s exceptional quality and reliability. “We have never used anything else and wouldn’t need to because the product is fit for purpose,” Andy says. The superior performance of MM35 Golf ensures that Rotherham Golf Club’s greens remain smooth, well-drained, and healthy, providing an optimal playing surface for golfers year-round.
