Simon’s Background

I have worked in the turf/golf industry for over 30 years, including work at the following locations:

  • Hartley Wintney Golf Club, where I originally started training
  • Edgeborough School in Surrey as Head Groundsman
  • The 5 Star Pennyhill Park Hotel in Bagshot as Estates and Golf Course Manager
  • Milford Golf Club in Surrey for 7 years as Golf Course Manager

In 1999, St Mellion International in Cornwall approached me to offer a job as Estates and Golf Course Manager, meaning I was managing 2 championship golf courses and a large timeshare village.

St Mellion is also within the top 100 golf courses in the UK and is used as a European tour Venue. I them moved to Harleyford Golf Club and was able to get the course in such a great condition that it won a HSBC Gold medal in 2008.

Simon’s Achievements

I have been named among the top 10 british greenkeepers.

I am a fully qualified assessor for the greenkeeping industry and have recently been added to the local BIGGA (British & International Golf Greenkeepers Association) committee, helping organise education and training for local greenkeepers and golf clubs.

In 2008, I was asked, along with 10 other people to represent the UK greenkeeping industry at the worlds largest show and conference on golf course management, which I proudly did.

What Simon Can Do For You

With all of my experience, I can help you with any issues that your lawn has, including, but not limited to:

  • Chafer Grubs
  • Leatherjackets
  • Red Thread
  • Fusarium
  • Moss
  • Weeds
  • Casting Worms

I will explain what type of fertiliser is best suited for your lawn, as all lawns are different, therefore require different feeds programmes.

There has been large advances in technology in the turf industry over recent years, including products that will reduce how often you need to cut your grass.

My knowledge and passion for great-looking, healthy turf will provide you with one of the best greenkeepers who could work on your lawn in the whole of the UK.
