The Royal Jersey Golf Club has become the latest course to sign an exclusive supply agreement with Sherriff Amenity. The three year agreement covers the exclusive provision of fertilisers and chemicals.

With the links overlooked by Mont Orgueil castle and the French coast, The Royal Jersey Golf Club has ‘postcard’ views from every angle. Having been part of the idyllic island for 136 years it is also immersed in rich history.

The club received its Royal warrant in 1879 from Her Majesty Queen Victoria before being converted into a mine field during WW2 when the Germans occupied the Channel Islands; of which the remnants can still be found along the opening hole where two gun emplacements are situated, making this one of the most intimidating first holes in golf.

Ben Blampied-Smyth has the task of maintaining a fine reputation and first-rate course standards, but given the current challenging financial climate, maintaining a course to such high standards is not an easy feat. However, the exclusive agreement with Sherriff Amenity helps Ben receive quality products and vital technical assistance from a trusted supplier.

“We are delighted to have signed a three-year agreement with Sherriff Amenity. From now on all of our products will be purchased from them, which guarantees us fixed prices over a three year period – it’s great for our budgets,” said Ben.

Ben, who holds a degree in Turf Science and NVQ level 4 in golf course management, has struggled to find a compatible supplier during his three years as Head Greenkeeper at The Royal Jersey, mainly due to the club’s location.

“The problem that we have on the island is that we are very limited to resources. A lot of the suppliers we previously used wanted me to pre-order our products and the delivery charges are quite high too. Sherriff Amenity has all the products I use and more. So instead of going to various suppliers on the Island and having to wait for various delivery times, Sherriff Amenity provides me with everything I need. Plus if I order over a certain amount they do the shipping for free which being on an island is a massive advantage.”
As Ben suggests, The Royal Jersey will benefit from volume group purchases and lower delivery costs, but will they will also be provided with a high level of technical support and the latest in new product technology available within the amenity arena.

“Sherriff Amenity provides a great service and products; if I’ve got a problem Rebecca will recommend two or three products and she will honestly tell me the advantages and disadvantages according to what I’m looking for. She will also give me feedback from other clubs that have used the products I’m interested in.”

Commenting on the agreement, Rebecca Turner, Sherriff Amenity’s Account Manager said: “I’m always pleased to help and give Ben advice where I can. We have established a great working relationship and, as with all our customers, I look forward to continuing our relationship with The Royal Jersey over the next few years.”
