About Middlewich Machinery
Groundscare and Turfcare Machinery Cheshire
I am Peter Hough, owner and director of the business.
Turf care has always held an interest for me – I studied Land Based Technology at Reaseheath College near Nantwich – but my passion developed when I started my first full time job at an Agricultural & Plant Dealer. Having gained valuable experience, I went on to work for High Legh Golf Course in Knutsford, expanding my knowledge and understanding of turf and grounds care.
I’d been bitten by a turf care bug and decided to set up on my own. I wanted full control and responsibility for supplying reliable equipment and exceptional service. At the age of just 19, it was just me, my van, my spanner and determination to offer a better service than anyone else. I worked hard to get each job, approaching prospective clients myself and taking every job I could get, gradually building my client base.
To begin with I took work in both Agriculture and Horticulture. My spare time was spent on the golf course, playing reasonably well but always striving to improve. If you want to play well, you need to put in the hours and pay attention to the details before you take your swing. Turf care is the same. Care and attention will provide an enviable finish. It needs expertise and experience to achieve good results.
Already somewhat fanatical about turf care, my instincts caused me to take a deeper interest on the golf course than most players. In 2012, I decided to turn my machinery business focus to golf courses and sports clubs. This had nothing to do with finding the countless balls I had lost while trying to improve my handicap. If you play either golf or football, you’ll know that the quality of the ground can make a difference to your game. As a business, the reputation of the club will be measured by many, through the quality of the ground. I decided to offer a turf care machinery service to golf and sports clubs befitting of the perfection expected by their investors and players.
