To whom it may concern:

STM provide a level of service and commitment which go way beyond their contractual obligations, they take complete ownership and run the site as if they own it.

They source industry experts to run their teams and set themselves the highest standards in order to always exceed the customers expectations.


Devonvale Golf & Wine Estate

Reference letter to STM:

It has been 5 years since we outsourced our golf course maintenance to STM. The improvement to our course year to year has been outstanding and the reason why we have renewed our contract with them for another 3 years. The course is looking great, but it is their attention to detail that satisfies us most.

STM - Letter of Recommendation

It gives me great pleasure to highly recommend the services of STM.

Since acquiring their services from December 2010 to date, they have proved that we can depend on their consistency and discipline - without which, no golf course could be in the condition we find ours today!

Their attention to detail, and constant improvement of the course not only earns us the daily compliments of both members and guests to our Club, but has also helped us achieve the prestigious ranking of among the top 110, and one of the top 50 best-conditioned golf courses in South Africa.


Highland Gate - Golf and Trout Estate

To whom it may concern.

Southern Turf Management have been involved with the completion and maintenance of our Ernie Els signature golf course for approximately 9 years. They have proven to be a valuable asset to Highland Gate over the years, as not only do they fulfill their contractual obligations to us, but are always willing to go the extra mile.

STM are a service orientated company, and I am often pleasantly surprised at the lengths they go to add value to our estate.

During the summer part of 1997, I met the Directors of Southern Turf Management, Kosie Mentz and Derrick Bolton, during a trip to the President's Cup in Washigton DC. Their passion, commitment and love for both the game and turf grass maintenance industry was evident. At the time Kosie was the Head Greenkeeper at Fancourt.
