PRO Supplier

Martin Guy Developments (MGD), a golf services supplier and maintenance contractor, has signed a rolling 12-month preferred supplier agreement with Sherriff Amenity. The agreement covers exclusive provision of fertilisers, chemicals and grass seed.

MGD has earned an enviable reputation in the UK golf industry for being able to renovate and maintain golf courses to a standard well in excess of usual expectations whilst still keeping a keen control on costs. The company is a preferred golf services supplier to over ten courses across Essex, Hertfordshire and the southeast, including Braintree Golf Club, West Essex Golf Club, Rickmansworth Golf Course, Bushey Golf and Country Club, Stevenage Golf Course, Windmill Hill Golf Course and Nazeing Golf Club.

The agreement that has been reached will ensure that MGD will not only benefit from volume group purchases, but will also be provided with a high level of technical support and the latest in new product technology available within the amenity arena.

“Working with Sherriff Amenity gives us the ability to work with the best products for our business, whilst being able to provide quality golf courses,” said Martin.

“We chose Sherriff following 2-3 years background research work into different suppliers and products which we were using at the time. Sherriff was the company that could help us the most, and who could supply us with an unrivalled range of products within the time frames we required them.

“The agreement is working very well because they work hard to understand our business and to tailor-make their supply service to fit that. I would have no hesitation in recommending Sherriff. We have total confidence that we are getting the best products we can possibly get to maintain our golf courses.”

"The only thing with the husky and the echo is that the trigger looks like it could catch on something and snap off.  I notice that the latest stihl long reach hedge cutters have the same sort of arrangment.  It may just be me be pedantic.  "

"in the £300 and under bracket i think the Husky 520RJX is the best value for money compared to power and low vibrations -- same power as the Sthil FS90 but half the vibrations and £100 less -- ignore th retail price -- most dealer will do for around…"
