Master Greenkeeper bids farewell to the fairways to transform Lakeland lawns
1st Oct 2017
A greenkeeper who is one of only 72 globally to hold a ‘Master Greenkeeper Certificate’ has left the golf course behind to focus on improving domestic lawns in the Lake District.
Colin Parish MG, the former Course Manager of Ulverston and Morecambe Golf Clubs, joined Lawn Master earlier this year. His area covers the South Lakes and Lune Valley.
Colin has worked in greenkeeping for more than 36 years beginning his career as an Assistant Greenkeeper at Heysham Golf Club. He attained Master Greenkeeper Certification in 2005, becoming the 40th greenkeeper in the world to achieve the accolade which is awarded to members of the British & International Golf Greenkeepers Association who reach the highest standards of greenkeeping and golf course management.
Colin has customers from Millom in the west, to Ingleton in the east, Ambleside in the north and Lancaster in the south of the area who are benefitting from his expertise. Colin provides bespoke lawn treatment plans and a range of services which improve a lawn’s heath, appearance and durability, such as aeration, scarification and overseeding.
“I’m enjoying the challenge,” Colin said. “I’m using the same professional products, machinery and turf maintenance practices that I used on the golf course, but in a domestic setting. I’m enjoying working with homeowners, and their gardeners, to ensure their lawn stays in great condition all year round.”
