Golf Course Construction, Drainage and Maintenance

White Horse Contractors sets the industry standard for golf course construction, golf course drainage or maintenance.

“White Horse Contractors has worked with us and for us on many new and established golf courses during a 20-year period and I have never known a better or more efficient company with which to deal.”

With a series of high profile clients, the White Horse Contractors team has completed golf courses across the UK and Europe with services including:

  • Golf course drainage and water feature consultancy and design
  • Primary and secondary golf course drainage installations
  • Irrigation reservoirs and water harvesting
  • Lakes, ponds and water features construction
  • Tees, greens and bunkers
  • Buggy paths and walkways
  • Renovation and maintenance


Rain can frequently result in unwanted water flows and pools. Our golf course drainage techniques provides controlled removal of this excess surface water.

Our specialist trenching machines cut minimum-width drainage trenches to a laser controlled depth and grade, lay a collector drain into the clean, spoil-free trench and convey trench arisings directly into low ground-pressure transport to be removed, or used elsewhere.

Finally we use our low ground-pressure backfilling units to deposit permeable fill, to ensure that no contamination to the existing turf occurs. All this is undertaken in a single operation and with minimal disturbance to the golf course playing surface itself.

“This was an excellent job. White Horse Contractors listened to our requirements and was thoroughly professional in its undertaking. The ‘course closed’ sign is a distant memory. The company will be back as our programme continues.”
