Bromborough Golf Club, located in part of the Leverhulme Estate on the Wirral Peninsula, has recently had a smart upgrade to its course pathways with a Terrabase Classic no-dig, resin bound, permeable surfacing solution.
Existing gravel pathways at the 100-year-old golf course in Birkenhead needed regular repair to make good potholes and replace loose stone that had migrated into the surrounding grass. The club was looking for a decorative, hard-wearing paving with no loose gravel that would require little maintenance and provide good access around the course for all. Good permeability was also important to ensure that the paths remained water free in wet weather.
Thelwell Flooring Ltd, an NCC Addagrip approved contractor, offered a Terrabase no-dig surfacing system to provide a long-lasting solution which could be installed with minimum disruption and without the need for an asphalt base.
The Terrabase system consists of a heavy gauge geotextile fabric and a gravel stabilised grid topped with either a Rustic or a Classic resin bound finish. The Terrabase system is installed onto a base build-up of type 3 MOT, topped with a 30mm depth of finer compacted limestone, offering fast installation with minimum groundworks.
The client was looking for a red paving option and selected a Terrabase Classic system using a Stonebound 6mm Vanstone Red aggregate blend to offer a smooth, seamless, porous finish.
Work was carried out in June and July 2021 to the satisfaction of the client and Thelwell Flooring were invited back in Sept 2021 to install more Terrabase Classic areas on the course.
