Pro-Turfcare Ltd is a family run business which was formed in 2014.
William and Martin Headley have worked in the industry all their working lives. William, straight from school, started working for his brother Ian and his company Strathclyde Sportsturf Management back in 1978 upto 2014 when his brother Ian suddenly passed away.
Martin left school in 2004 and immediately also started working for the business whilst also attending Elmwood College in Fife. Martin carried out his SVQ level 2 and level 3 greenkeeping qualifications and spraying certifications. During his time at Elmwood College he had the chance to spend time and learn at the home of golf, the Old Course at St.Andrews Links.
After Ians recent passing William and Martin decided to start their own company Pro-Turfcare Ltd so they could continue the great work and reputation build up by Ian and themselves at Strathclyde Sportsturf Management. They couldn’t see themselves doing anything else as it’s a job they love doing. Taking on the client base from Strathclyde Sportsturf Management William and Martin looked forward to exceeding customer expectations and welcoming new ones in the future.
The company now over 5 year old at the time of writing this has expanded in size which lead to the hire of close friend Robbie Cruickshank who himself has worked in the greenkeeping industry the majority of his working life mostly at Carluke Golf Club. Robbie liked the idea of visiting many different sites around the country and facing different challenges each day and has fitted in nicely taking great pride in his work and sharing the same values William and Martin share. William wife Lynn even helps with the paperwork side of the business a few days a week allowing William, Martin and Robbie to get out on site and provide the high level of service their customers have come to expect.

Prior to Pro-Turfcare taking over the care of our green, the usual comments from visitors were along the lines of how heavy it was. ” I couldn’t get them up ” was the usual statement. What a transformation! We now have a fast running, free draining and smooth surface which is praised by visitors and members alike. We even have had the comment that it was like playing indoors The service and support from Billy and Martin is excellent and I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who wants a good playing surface.
