To whom it may concern

In the years 2010 – 2011, we carried out a new links style18-hole golf course called University Golfclub Paderborn. Mr. Conor 1 Walsh had been the lead shaper on this project.

I forced the construction company Brehmer Golfplatzbau to choose Conor as a lead shaper and he exceeded the expectations. He worked not just as a lead shaper but also as site manager for the construction company. The construction company and myself felt lucky to choose him for this job. He worked to our utmost satisfaction. The course is wonderfully shaped, fdl of character and real eye-catchers.

Conor understood perfectly what kind of style the client and myself had been looking for. He is easy, works quick and is able to work with different kind of machines.

Thus I’m very pleased about the shaping work of Conor and I can strongly recommend him to anyone who is seeking an excellent shaper for links style golf courses.

Dear Conor,

On behalf of Handsworth Golf Club I would like to thank you for the bunker refurbishment program that you recently completed. The whole project has been a great success from start to finish. Your shaping expertise is clear to see and many of the alterations you suggested have worked extremely well. At our first meeting we agreed that the infrastructure was most important and that has been achieved with drainage, bunker blinder and sand all working well.
The timeline that you completed all workings was impressive and testament to good working practices and the quality of your workforce. The fact that you refurbished 68 bunkers in twenty-one days is proof of the skill and commitment of your employees and shows a commendable work ethic.

Many thanks for all your hard work and Handsworth Golf Club are very happy to associated with Conor Walsh Golf Ltd.

Harborne Golf Club

Conor J Walsh Golf Ltd was chosen as our preferred contractor for the restoration of 20 greenside and 15 fairway bunkers at Harborne Golf Club.

This involved some delicate re-shaping without losing the original Harry Colt style of what we have and this was completed in a very short space of time of 4 weeks.
The feedback from our membership has been fantastic during this process especially as the course was made playable everyday and with absolute minimal disruption along with Conor and his team being extremely respectful of golfers during their work.

Hopefully the Club will be in a position to begin stage 2 of the bunker restoration work at Harborne in October 2017 and I will not hesitate in recommending Conor J Walsh Golf Ltd to the Club again and to anyone who is seeking his services for their golf club.
