Built with the Fibersoil Turf process (natural turf on reinforced sand), these pitches were played every evening by the Club Members and had been applauded by the most famous players in the world, participating in international tournaments hosted by GRPC.
Despite extensive use in such an arid region, the fields-several years after their construction-show no damage (no holes, no divots, etc.) and remain supple and firm while offering a remarkable resilience, without requiring any special maintenance.
