Welcome

Noel MacKenzie, Sports Turf Consulting Ltd

Hello and welcome to Sports Turf Consulting Limited.  My name is Noel MacKenzie and I am the owner and Principal Consultant of Sports Turf Consulting and my aim is to provide high standard technical assistance in the field of sports turf maintenance advice to my clients.  

As an Independent Agronomist my ethos is to avoid any commercial links or tie-ins so that you, the client, is assured of my independence from commercial pressures or benefits.  I offer a range of support packages for turf managers and grounds staff and their employers to assist sports and golf clubs / facilities in the private and public sectors.  I maintain membership of RIPTA as proof of this independence to our clients.

Sports Turf Consulting’s client base is a rich mix of golf clubs, local authorities, schools (both public and private) and sports clubs (both single sport and multi-sport).  I have also worked at strategic level with Hackney Council supporting them through the development of the Olympic Park and Olympic Legacy demands.  I work on Football Foundation, Rugby Football Union and Sport England grant funded projects in the construction and development of sportsgrounds.  Please have a look around my website and explore how I work with clients in a general sense, although I would stress that every client is different and requires their own individual service package.

I really enjoy my work helping people and have dedicated my career to enriching my understanding of turfgrass science and the art of preparing and maintaining surfaces to support grounds staff and greenkeepers in achieving better sports surfaces for their players.  The following pages set out some of the approaches used and the typical work we undertake in more detail, but if you have any questions please feel free to use the email link below.

Welcome and I hope you like our site.
