Lincolnshire based turf grower Tillers Turf are pleased to announce the arrival of Anthony Darker as their "Specialist Turf Manager". Based at Springwood Farm near Lincoln, Anthony will lead the production and ongoing development of both the Golf turf and "Flora" range of wildflower turf products.
Bringing ten years of greenkeeping experience to the team, having formerly been first assistant at Elsham Golf Club, Anthony is well known in the industry for his tireless conservation efforts and was instrumental in Elsham Golf Club winning the much coveted "Operation Pollinator Award", and most recently he was awarded the individual accolade of STRI "Conservation Greenkeeper of the Year".
Anthony takes over the role from Richard Owens who now takes up the position of "Technical Manager", offering advice and support to Course Managers, Landscape Architects and Specifiers amongst others.
Richard says, "It's great to welcome Anthony to the team here at Tillers. His experience in the golf industry will be a real asset to the company and his passion for both nature and wildflowers is quite clear to see by what he achieved during his time at Elsham. I'm looking forward to working with him".
