Macclesfield, Cheshire, England: Campey Turf Care Systems has strengthened its team with the appointment of product specialist Jason Moody.
Moody, who will cover Wales, the Midlands and West Cheshire, brings almost three decades worth of greenkeeping experience to the Campey team.
“We’re very happy to welcome Jason to the Campey team. We always aim to give customers advice from a place of experience and Jason is in a great position to do that because of the knowledge he has gained during his time as a greenkeeper and working in sales,” said Julia Campey, Managing Director at Campey, a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
Moody started in the industry at the age of 16 as an apprentice at Royal St David’s Golf Club, where he stayed for seven years.
He continued honing his skills at Botley Park Hotel where he took on the role of Deputy Course Manager for the construction and grow-in of the new course before becoming Course Manager.
Five years as Course Manager at Canterbury Golf Club and two years in Hertfordshire followed before Moody moved back to North Wales to be closer to his family. Over the next 13 years, he gained sales experience and returned to greenkeeping at Plassey Leisure Park in Wrexham, before taking on a new challenge at Campey.
“This is a fantastic opportunity,” Moody said. “I hope my knowledge and experience can bring something to the business. I’m very excited about the new challenge ahead.
“I’ve been aware of Campey during my career and they’ve helped me throughout as a greenkeeper. I’ve seen the evolution of the company through my career and the impact they’ve had on greenkeeping. When I started in the industry, we were dressing greens by hand with wheelbarrows. Now we’re using Dakota top-dressers!”
