The Turfmaster

After 17 years of managing multi-site golf courses for both American Golf and Crown Golf, Laurence Pithie has set up his own company Turf Master One Ltd. He will now be focusing on golf course consultancy and training within the industry, both here in the UK and Europe.

With nearly 40 years of golf course management experience, Laurence is able to offer a more personal approach to clients, working with both management and maintenance teams within clubs or organisations to help maintain and improve golf courses within a sustainable environment, while helping to achieve both agronomical and financial objectives.

Laurence will be offering comprehensive workshops and seminars to course owners, managers, head greenkeepers and colleges in ‘effective golf course management’ providing training in areas from aerification to water management.  During the past year he has published a short book and a comprehensive maintenance manual on golf course management.  A second book on ‘Seasonal Requirements for Golf Course Management’ is due for publication in August.

Laurence can be contacted on 07774 414207 or via e-mail:
