Sports Turf at Merrist Wood
There are fantastic opportunities both in the UK and overseas for people who are trained and qualified in sports turf… so if you are passionate about sport and would love to work outdoors then this is the industry for you.
Most sports played involve the use of grass or turf surfaces, including football, rugby, golf, cricket, horse racing, and all these surfaces need to be looked after. Our sports turf courses will equip you with the skills necessary to build, maintain and manage quality turf surfaces to a high standard, whilst also offering excellent employment prospects.
You will have access to an adjoining 18 hole golf course, specialist sports turf machinery and close links with the sports turf industry and employers. Our teaching staff also have excellent knowledge of the industry and are dedicated experts in their field.
