What our clients say about us
“The works undertaken were completed to a very high standard. We are delighted with the results and would have no hesitation in recommending this contractor to others."
Barbara Belfield-Dean - Bursar
The Rayleigh Club
"As the owner of the Rayleigh Club, and having had Turfdry install drainage to both our championship members course and our pay & play course, I can honestly say that both courses have gone from being only playable 8-9 months per year to 12 months a year; in fact, the only closure we have had since the drainage was installed has been due to frost.
The product works and works well, the planning and services given are exceptional, and I would recommend both to anyone looking to make their golf course an all-round better playing surface. We have found that not only are the fairways much dryer, the growth we are experiencing since the drainage has been installed is also much thicker and healthier.
To me, the ultimate proof is that we now have over 50 people waiting to join the members course as they are aware that they are pretty much guaranteed all year round golf, and I’m certain there cannot be many golf clubs that can boast that fact. "
Jamie Saitch - Owner
“The fields at Freeston are excellent and probably one of the best around for school fields. Many of our visiting schools regularly moment on how good they are particularly through the bad winter months. Many games remain playable due to the excellent state of our fixture, whereas many of our opponents have to call fixtures off. This has obviously made a big difference in allowing outdoor lessons to remain outside.
I was here before 2003 and the difference is considerably noticeable. Thank you for the excellent job your company did. We are still benefitting from it and will do for a number of years."
Lee Hudson - Head of PE
"The Turfdry installation has been a revelation."
John Heyworth - IOG Volunteer Sports Groundsman of the Year 2013
Reepham High School
"Reepham High School & College has a new 16 acre sports ground which provides marvelous facilities for its students and community. The project which saw this field converted from a rough rural field to the landscaped sports ground with drainage and almost billiard top finish is down to Turfdry, who were extremely impressive from beginning to end by the professionalism of the company as well as the knowledge and commitment of its Managing Director. I certainly have no reservations at all in recommending them."
Chris Hassell, Headmaster
Woodside Sports Partnership, Haringey
"I’ve inspected the field and the pitches, despite recent heavy rain, are in excellent condition. The work seems to be to a high standard and the spoil created has been incorporated into the surrounding borders with no ill effect."
Dave Thomas, Vice Principal & Development Manager
"I'm very happy indeed with the greens drainage, and so are all the members. Firmness of the greens is good and we can get machinery on when it's not normally possible at this time of year".
Tony Sharman, Course Manager
Birchwood Park Golf Club
"The drainage is working wonderfully and the appearance of the course has improved dramatically as a result. In the two years since the drainage we've had no closures."
Rob Holland, Head Greenkeeper
Woburn Golf & Country Club
"The combination of modern equipment and experienced manpower enabled an intensive drainage system to be installed quickly with minimum disturbance".
Gary Leadbeater, Head Greenkeeper, Marquess Course
Dashwood Primary School

- Design of the new drainage system
- Grading of the site of the new field
- The drainage scheme
- Final landscape seeding to area
All of the work started and was completed on time to a very high quality."

Emma Gillan - Area Manager North (Physical Activity), London Borough of Barking & Dagenham
Thorndon Park Golf Club
"I am delighted to say that the greens are recovering well but being tested to the extreme in these wet conditions! I think the installation went well, with minimum disruption, and I would be grateful if you could pass our thanks on to all concerned for making it such a seamless operation."
Giles Thomas - Club Manager
Chilwell Manor Golf Club
"The work has been most successful. Tested by a fall of 3 inches of snow followed by a night's rain, the water drained through the system perfectly. Our members have been most complimentary about money well spent and I am pleased to advise our complete satisfaction."
Gordon Lumbis - Greens Chairman
"I commissioned Turfdry to undertake the construction of four high quality football pitches two at Dagnam Park and two at Broxhill Park. Both constructions involved extensive cut and fill and the installation of a drainage system that was designed in each case to be fit for purpose.
I have found the attention to detail and professionalism of this company to be of the highest standard, this has resulted in the construction of four very high quality pitches with the minimum of disturbance to those using the parks. They also showed a high degree of care when required to ensure that no harm came to any of the local wildlife during the construction process. This included mammals birds reptiles and amphibians.
The customer care was of a high degree and they always ensured to meet every wish of the client and they were always very easy to communicate with when required. During the project Turfdry demonstrated the ability to undertake works to a high standard with the minimum of input from the client.
I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone considering constructing or renovating sports pitches."
Martin Stanton, Parks & Open Spaces Manager

"The sports field drainage has proven very successful."
Jane Farrow, Senior Architect, W S Atkins Consultants, Oxford
"As president and on behalf of Hellingly RFC, I would like to express our thanks to you and your team for the excellent work carried out on our first team pitch in September (2017). In the past 5 seasons we have had to cancel an average of 8 home games over the winter period, we haven't cancelled any this year, and Saturday was the hardest test and the pitch stood up to the task.
The fact we can play games through the winter is marvellous as it also helps the club with bar revenue after the game and keeps all aspects of the club alive. Thanks again for your help, and please use us as a referral."
Steve Wennington - President, Hellingly RFC CIC
