Turfdry Team Receives High Praise From Lockerbie Golf Club

Turfdry received an Initial enquiry from Lockerbie Golf Club in April 2018, when the club became aware of the possible availability of grant funding for much needed fairway drainage improvements. Turfdry responded with a submission of budget costs on the basis of a Google Earth desktop study.

Several quotes were received by the Golf Club, but as there was no specification issued the club had to try to compare ‘apples and pears’. The grant funder was keen for a local contractor to be used but the local contractor who had priced the works went out of business, enabling Club Captain, Elena Coppola, to approach Turfdry, who would have been the club’s first preference based on their specialism and track record. The club paid for a ‘refundable’ site visit by Melvyn Taylor (M.D.) and Stuart Wormleighton (Turfdry Site Manager) in December 2018, to assess the drainage problems and meet the management committee.

Turfdry Return to Sundridge Park Golf Club for Fairway Drainage Project

After the resounding success of the greens drainage works carried out by Turfdry on all 18 greens of Sundridge Park’s West Course in 2015 & 2016, the club had engaged Turfdry to begin two phases of greens drainage to cover all 18 holes of the East Course. However, wet winters have contributed to increased fairway drainage issues on the West Course’s fairways, leaving many of the newly dry greens stranded. Consequently, the club opted to delay the drainage works to the East Course by twelve months in order to focus its efforts on the West Course, installing fairway drainage in key problem areas over four holes.
