Leo-Zeo Turf chosen for Regnums new golf development in Ankara
Irish Turfcare Ltd. are delighted to announce that Leo-Zeo Turf has been selected as the soil amendment of choice for Regnums latest golf development in Ankara, Turkey. Designed by EIGCA member Tim Lobb, Regnum Golf Country will be Regnums fifth, 5 star golf development and going by the stringent standards already implemented by the Regnum Group, there is no doubt that this latest project is also set to become a world class facility.
The golf course is currently under construction by the main contractor Golf Tek. Progress is going well with rootzone placement using Leo-Zeo Turf due to take place this summer.
Although a relatively new product, Leo-Zeo Turf has had tremendous success to date. Having undergone a series of testing with European Turfgrass laboratories, the product was first launched in 2018, and was immediately used in a number of pitch renovations for some of the UKs premiership football clubs with amazing results. Also in 2018, Leo-Zeo was tried and tested by more than 50 golf course managers throughout the UK and Ireland with excellent results every time.
When it came to decision time for Regnum, it was a very easy choice as tests have proven that as well as amending sand to meet with all the physical requirements outlined in the USGA specifications, Leo-Zeo also has the ability to improve CEC, promote rooting and improve both nutrient retention and uptake. All of this means healthier turf with less leaching of nutrients which means cost savings with less damage to the environment.
