Golf Club de LaLargue, a Swiss Club but located in the Alsace region of France, have recently appointed a new General Manager, Graham Stewart, and developed a strategic business plan to develop and enhance the club into one of the top clubs in the region and the country. A major part of this is to review and improve the condition and presentation of the golf course.

After initial discussions, Braemar Golf presented a solution to LaLargue which met all their criteria. This has involved Braemar teaming up with John Clarkin and Julian Mooney of Turfgrass, the leading golf course consultancy. The scope of services will involve an audit of the entire golf maintenance department and how it manages the golf course, as well as supporting the team to develop and implement improved agronomy programmes and elevate the condition and presentation of the golf course for the members and guests. In time, beneficial changes to the golf courses are also to be considered.

Graham Stewart commented “the club have prioritised the golf course as a key area to improve as part of a longer term strategic plan. The Board and I required the best knowledge and skills, but importantly experience of the market LaLargue operates in. Keith and Braemar have taken all this on board and delivered LaLargue a solution which met all our criteria. The Board and I are looking forward to working with Julian, John and Braemar on this project and to seeing positive results to achieve our vision”.
