Hi, I’m Josh, your local Lawn Master representative in Peterhead, North Aberdeenshire. Some of the areas that I cover include: Fraserburgh, Elgin, Newburgh, Ballindalloch, Aberlour, Ellon, Banff, Inverurie, Turriff, Buckie, Lossiemouth and other surrounding areas.

Josh’s Background

I have been a greenkeeper in Aberdeenshire for over 25 years, working at a total of 6 different golf courses which are:

  • Alford Golf Club where I started my greenkeeping career.
  • Peterhead Golf Club where I worked as 1st Assistant.
  • Newmachar Golf Club where I worked for the first time as Deputy Head Greenkeeper.
  • Fraserburgh Golf Club where I worked as Deputy Head Greenkeeper.
  • Longside Golf Club where I worked for the first time as Head Greenkeeper.
  • Insch Golf Club where I worked as Head Greenkeeper.

From all of the golf courses that I worked at through my career, Longside Golf Club was particularly challenging because the water table was always high and the river Ugie regulalrly burst its banks and flooded the course. This common problem at the course gave ma a lot of experience in dealing with turf where drainage needed to be as good as possible.

Josh’s Achievements

I am a fully qualified greenkeeper with SQV Level 3 qualifications in Sports Turf & Amenity Horticulture. I achieved all of my turf qualifications at Elmwood College and have since continued to further my professional development through various courses and opportunities offered through BIGGA (The British and International Golf Greenkeepers’ Association).

What Josh Can Do For You

With all of my experience in turf management, I can create a lawn treatment plan that will resolve all of your lawn problems, such as:

  • Poor lawn drainage
  • Leatherjackets
  • Red Thread
  • Fusarium
  • Moss
  • Weeds
  • Casting Worms

It’s important to understand that all lawns are different and therefore every lawn I deal with has a bespoke plan to rectify its problems. On your free quotation, I will explain your lawn problems in detail, and the exact steps required to rectify them.
