About Muirfield Sports
Beginning in 2001, and through a lifelong attachment to the great game of Golf, Jim Lawrence founded Muirfield Sports, which has maintained a determined mandate to design and create the ultimate in Synthetic Turf Putting Greens and Lawnscapes through both their Florida and West Coast offices. Coupling an extensive background in Golf, both as a longtime PGA Golf Professional and several forays into actual golf course architecture with noted architects such as Ed Seay, Palmer Course Design, Clyde Johnston and Robert Walker, furthering his passion for golf design, Jim has enthusiastically brought true realism to their projects for the passionate golfer at their dream homes.
Really……would not all passionate golfers absolutely love to have a Putting Green, but have never progressed apparently due to mundane offerings? With aspects of distinctive elevation, contoured Tiers, Bulkheading, Pot Bunkers, Turf Moguls and an actual Apron cut, our Greens seem to have the spirit of something from Pete Dye, Tom Fazio or the phenomenal Tom Doak, of Pacific Dunes and Cape Kidnappers fame.
Admittedly our work is not the fastest, but certainly the most tedious and constructed by highly trained, actual golfers who appreciate the perspective of great courses, we adapt the mandate that we are creating a 20+ year project, and always seem to exceed the client’s expectations.
Before we ever turn a shovel our project designs are truly something to marvel at in golf course architectural formatting, and many times provide a great framed memory at the project site of how it all began.
Jim Lawrence – Owner & CEO
A unique career as a PGA Golf Professional, golf industry equipment executive and an extensive Synthetic Turf design and installation background has provided Jim the ultimate perspective for masterful creations of Synthetic Golf Projects and adjoining Lawnscapes. After a tenure of managing the west coast for industry icon Fieldturf, Jim founded Muirfield Sports (named after his favorite golf venue; the revered Muirfield in Scotland), based on the principle of providing his clients the ultimate in realism with their artificial putting greens. Taking a personal involvement in each project assures that all of our clients benefit from his vast golf experience, while allowing a superb working relationship to their wishes and budget. Certainly his adjoining Lawnscapes mirror the same devotion to detail and creative.
