We are happy to appoint Carr Golf as our investment to a service which brings objectivity, specialist and scientific expertise, and highly relevant experience to the many challenges of golf course maintenance. We will keep control over the long term while having a consistent and expert outlook on the course each day.”
Aindriú Jackson, who has over 20 years’ experience in course maintenance, construction and agronomy, joins Carr Golf from Macreddin Golf Club, Co. Wicklow where he was General Manager. Aindriú and fellow Regional Superintendent Iain Ritchie lead a team of over 60 greenkeepers and mechanics to delivery course maintenance solutions to over 20 golf courses in Ireland. 500,000 rounds a year are played at venues managed or maintained by Carr Golf.
