Green Circle
Woodlake Park Golf Club
During 7 years of Symbio on our USGA greens, we have developed as high a quality of fescue/bent putting surfaces as anywhere in Britain. Our greens budget including top-dressing and seed is less than £5,000. I rarely need to use fungicides, and fertiliser use is at an absolute minimum. This is 'real sustainability.
Howard Wood
Owner/Head Greenkeeper

Resister
Vale of Glamorgan Golf and Country Club
We've used Symbio’s ''sustainability'' for the last 3 years and have reduced fertiliser inputs on both The National and Lakes greens to less than 75 Kg of N per hectare a season. Our putting surfaces are superb all year round
John Borja
Golf Courses Manager

MycoGro Complete fertilisers
Perranporth Golf Club
We've had great success with Symbio over many years on our fescue links greens which hardly ever get fed ! We have also not used a fungicide for years.
Billy Mitchell
Head Greenkeeper

ThatchEater
The Parc Golf Club
Before we used Symbio, our parkland greens were very poor in all aspects. After 5 years with Symbio, using their 'sustainable approach' for quality turf, the greens are continuously in very good condition despite the huge amount of rounds played. We now have bent dominated swards that are improving rapidly all the time.
Les Pearce
Head Greenkeeper

Symbio VermiCompost
Orchardleigh Golf Club
We used Symbio Vermi-Compost on our irrigation free fairways and despite the dry summer the results have been excellent with steady growth. Our Symbio greens have also performed to the very highest standard with little fertiliser. The bents really prefer this regime. We are proud of our environmental approach throughout the whole golf course.

Symbio Fungi Booster
West Middlesex Golf Club
"We had really bad fairy rings on our greens and I spot treated with Fungi Booster. I went on holiday for 3 weeks and when I came back Wow! The area was all green and had fully recovered".
Charles Gobi
Head Greenkeeper

ThatchEater
Rushmere Golf Club
'Since working with Symbio, we no longer need to undertake expensive and disruptive hollow-tine aeration to manage thatch.
Pat Swinn
Head Greenkeeper

Symbio Aquacept
Links Golf Club  
'With regular spot treatments of  Symbio Liquid Fungi Booster and Symbio Aquacept, symptoms of Fairy Ring and the associated dry patch disappeared within fourteen days'
Rob Boyce
Course Manager

Green Circle Ely
City Golf Club
'Since starting with Symbio Green Circle two seasons ago, I have noticed a significant increase in root mass and root depth in the greens. The increase in microbial activity after application gets the greens off to a fast start in Spring.' –
Andy Baker
Course Manager

BioBrewer
RAC Golf and Country Club
We have worked with Symbio since 2003 since then root depth and mass have dramatically improved and our greens have become colonised with bent grass. Fungicide, fertiliser and water inputs have reduced, we have less disease and dry patch, fairy rings have disappeared and our members are very happy with the greens throughout the year
Bob Wiles
Course Manager

ThatchEater
Rushmere Golf Club
'Since working with Symbio, we no longer need to undertake expensive and disruptive hollow-tine aeration to manage thatch.

'Biological breakdown of thatch with Symbio ThatchEater and Fungal Compost Tea has improved the performance of our putting surfaces. It has also enabled me to minimise disruptive and labour intensive practices for physical thatch removal.'
Robert Rowson
Golf and Estates Manager

Orchardleigh Golf Club
Our Symbio greens have performed to the very highest standard with little fertiliser. The bents really prefer this regime. We are proud of our environmental approach throughout the whole golf course.

I am very happy with my Symbio programme; we have used less fertiliser and had less disease than ever before.

Symbio PhytoGro is an excellent all round product.

Ingleby Barwick Golf Club
I’ve used Symbio PhytoGro for the last two seasons with virtually no disease and good colour throughout the winter. I can strongly recommend this product.

Mycorrhizal SeedCoat
Ayr Racecourse
We have been using Mycorrhizal SeedCoat on our seed for the past two years and have seen a marked improvement in the speed and strength of recovery in the track following our 28 days racing here each year - all year round. In addition to its green credentials which are important to us, this product consistently delivers exactly what it promises.''
Katherine Self
Clerk of the Course

Resister
Spey Bay Golf Course
Since we started working with Symbio our thatch has nearly gone, we have converted the greens from poa annua to predominantly fescue, reduced fertiliser inputs and fungicide applications by 4 or 5 a year. With reduced budgets, had we not been on a Symbio Program I doubt if we could have produced our greens to the exceptional condition at present.
Andrew Shade
Head Greenkeeper

Mycorrhizal Inoculant
Machrihanish Dunes Golf Course
"Symbio`s range of organic products fits in very well with our minimal approach and SSSI legislation at Machrihanish Dunes. In particular the Symbio Mycorrhizal Inoculant allowed for rapid seed germination and extended root depth on a pure sand, sterile medium."
Euan Grant
Course manager

Symbio GreenCircle
Ely City GC
Since applying Symbio GreenCircle to the greens, root depth and density have improved dramatically'.
Andy Baker
Course Manager

Symbio MycoGro Complete Fertilisers
Worplesdon Golf Club Symbio
MycoGro 5.0.29+4Mg is a very good spring starter and autumn fertiliser, it gives an even colour and slow consistent growth lasting 4-6 weeks. I have found this product one of the best on the market.
Brian Turner
Course Manager

Symbio Thatch Eater
Craggan Golf Course and Trout Fishery
I used Symbio ThatchEater for the first time last season with excellent results; we achieved a reduction in the thatch layer, saw a large increase in finer grasses (bent /fescue) and a healthier, denser sward with little or no disease.
Fergus Laing
Course Manager

Symbio MycoGro Complete Fertilisers
Carrbridge Golf Club
Symbio MycoGro 5-0-29 is probably the best fertiliser that I have used, both in the Spring and the Autumn. The grass sward is dense and healthy and has increased the bent / fescue percentages by at least 50%. MycoGro 10-0-10 +4Mg has also done an excellent job for us.
Michael Mann
Course Manager

Marriott Forest of Arden
The Arden course at the Forest of Arden has hosted the British Masters and gets constant use for corporate golf with green fees at upwards of £100 per round so the playing surface must be excellent all year. The construction is a mix top dressing over soil that does not naturally drain well and USGA specification greens. Rob has worked to improve the soil biology for three years and incorporates Symbio ThatchEater and Compost Teas into his management programme. The thatch degrades and feeds the microbes added in the compost tea. The soil is now friable, open, draining and full of life. On the surface fairy rings and fungal dry patch have disappeared. Living soil allows Rob to core with smaller tines, scarify less and apply less top dressing, fertiliser and importantly for revenue spend less time physically
managing the surface.

Parc Golf Club, Newport Gwent
The Parc is a members club with a lot of green fee golf. When the USGA specification greens were chemically managed thatch built up to 5 cm in depth. Disease especially fusarium was rife and some of the greens could not sustain 100% grass cover. Carl Hicks and Les Pearce started to degrade thatch biologically in 2003, and immediately fertiliser inputs dropped by over 100kg N per year. Thatch is now less than 1cm. Disease is much reduced and fungicide applications have reduced from 5 to 2 by per year and the sward is now dominated by agrostis. Aeration is mostly by sorrel roller, Carl no longer hollow cores saving up to 60 tonnes of top dressing per year. The savings in fungicide, top dressing, fertiliser and wetting agent more than pays for the cost of improving soil biology.
