Heckmondwike’s Carpet Scores A Hole In One


A Country Club in Hertfordshire has experienced a surge in wedding bookings and an increased uptake in golf memberships after a stylish new carpet from Heckmondwike was installed as part of a complete renovation.

Following a re-design of the golf facilities at Bushey Country Club, 152m2 of Sticks & Stones Fibre Bonded carpet tiles was specified by ID-Architecture in Charcoal to provide an attractive yet durable flooring solution for the busy golf club.

These hardwearing specialist entrance carpet tiles were used throughout the golf changing rooms, lobby, members lounge and café because it is able to withstand the wear and tear caused by heavy footfall, spiked golf shoes and dirt brought in from the golf course.

Ian Darlington, Architect at ID-Architecture, said: “The country club is a popular wedding venue, as well as a prestigious golf club, so we needed a floor covering that was visually attractive and would look its best every day of the year. We chose Sticks & Stones in Charcoal because the striking diagonal motif created an appealing aesthetic and the robustness of fibre bonded carpet means that it will retain its appearance and will be easy for the club to maintain.”

Sticks & Stones is widely specified for leisure facilities because it is renowned for its durability and its ability to protect carpets by intercepting dirt and moisture trodden in from outside, which is a common issue for golf clubs which are open all year round. The golf club will also benefit from the robust construction of fibre bonded carpet which will not ravel or fray and offers excellent thermal and acoustic properties.

Abby Chandler, Marketing Manager for Heckmondwike FB, said: “Sticks & Stones was the perfect choice for Bushey Country Club, as it has very appealing aesthetics, yet can withstand the high traffic of this busy club, which has almost two thousand members. Since the golf club is also used as a wedding venue, customers will have peace of mind that the floor will look its best on their special day, whatever the weather outside.”
