John and the team at Turfgrass assisted me with the design, construction and management of my residential practice facility. They produced some of the best playing surfaces I have experienced which is why I rate them as a trusted golf development firm.

The team at Turfgrass, who developed and now maintain the golf academy at my home, have helped to replicate tournament conditions year round.

This level of conditioning and consistency has helped me prepare for tournaments over the past 13 years including 3 Major Championship victories.

My relationship with John Clarkin of Turfgrass has been invaluable in better understanding the relationship between the agronomics of a golf course and how it actually plays. This has helped enormously in my broadcast work for FOX Sports & for course features on CNN’s Living Golf show.

Turfgrass did a superb job in project managing the re-modeling work of the new golf course at Dromoland Castle.

Their professional approach to schedules and deadlines ensured the new course opened on time and within budget. The results are of the highest quality and the course is receiving fantastic reviews.

Through their overseeing of the construction they have helped to create a stunning new course.

Since 2003, Turfgrass have assisted us on our agronomic development and plan for a more sustainable course maintenance program.

In 2008, Turfgrass designed and developed a research station on site with the focus on water conservation and seed selection. The three years of data helped us develop a renovation case study which Turfgrass transformed into reality over the last 18 months.

Turfgrass has been a reliable and professional partner in all phases of our project, understanding our agronomy future goals, including the project management of our renovation and our recruitment process.

Together with Robert Trent Jones II we appointed Turfgrass to be part of our team responsible for establishing Lϋbker Golf Resort.

During the construction, grow-in and maintenance, Turfgrass provided environmentally sound solutions for our turf issues, while taking into consideration the budgets and environmental constraints which arose on the course.

This helped Lϋbker Golf Resort win the coveted “Best New International Golf Course 2008” award by GOLF Magazine, USA for 2008 and for Lϋbker Golf Resort to make a “dramatic” new entry as number 14 into the top 100 golf course rankings in continental Europe 2009 by Golf World Magazine.

Turfgrass did an excellent job and I have every confidence in deploying their services to any new existing golf courses worldwide.
