Burhill Golf Club played its part in the preparations for the 2018 Ryder Cup, by sending one of its greenkeepers to help get the golf course looking immaculate ahead of golf’s greatest spectacle.
Fabian Maisonny, working closely with the greenkeeping team at Le Golf National in Paris, focused on keeping the fairways and closely-mown areas looking perfect for the world’s best golfers.
Enrolled in the R&A Greenkeeping Scholarship Programme, 31-year-old Maisonny qualified to be part of the Ryder Cup preparations through his work helping at the French Open the last two years, held at the same course.
Europe won a hotly contested match against the USA, but some might argue it was the venue that stole the show with a course set up for great matchplay with amazing grandstands and viewing areas.
Burhill Golf Club General Manager, Dubravka Griffiths, said: “It’s fantastic that Fabian was able to play a part in the success of the Ryder Cup.
“I’m sure the experience of preparing a course for the world stage will help to further his career and help us enhance Burhill’s existing reputation for outstanding course standards and maintenance year-round.”
Burhill Golf Club has two championship golf courses and currently hosts the regional stage of The Open Qualifying Series.
