The first ever Capillary Hydroponics green with Geothermal system has been installed at Gothenburg Golf Club, the oldest golf club in Sweden
Gothenburg Golf Club is one of the most successful elite golf clubs in Sweden with several world-class professionals and amateurs members, and they were looking for a way to putt on natural greens that held PGA tour speeds and performance all year long. EIGCA Bronze Partner, CapillaryFlow, has the only system in the world that can utilize geothermal solar energy to heat up the root-zone in a hydroponic system to enable grass to grow year-round in colder climates and withstand frozen ground conditions.
“This is a game-changer for our elite players and members alike, to be able to use natural greens 1-2 months longer in fall and 1-2 months earlier in the spring is fantastic! The added advantage of a hydroponic system to keep greens speeds and uniformity at tour level is amazing” – says Ola Lindgren, Head Coach for the men´s Swedish Golf Federation National Team.
