Geraint’s Background

I have worked in the turf care industry for over 25 years, including work at the following locations:

  • I worked as a greenkeeper at 2 of the 18 hole championship golf courses at The Vale Resort & Spa. I was later promoted to Assistant Head Greenkeeper and worked there for a total of 12 years.
  • In 2006, I became Head Groundsman at the Wales National Centre of Excellence, where £12 million had been invested in facilities. I was responsible for the development and maintenance of 6 international rugby and football pitches.
  • In 2012, I was appointed Head Groundsman at the state-of-the-art facility in Newport called Dragon Park. This is the Wales National Football Development Centre, where I was responsible for the maintenance of 2 international standard natural grass pitches.
  • I have maintained pitches used by The British Lions, Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid, plus many others.

Working at these venues for such long periods of time have enabled me to manage turf in all environmental conditions and for all levels of use.

Geraint’s Achievements

I hold City & Guilds qualifications and a NVQ Level 4 in Sports Turf Management.

I have been fortunate enough to work at various prestigious football grounds in the UK. I was most recently involved in the design and construction of the Football Association of Wales’ new facility at Colliers Park in Wrexham, North Wales.
