“On behalf of the Greens Committee, Board of Directors and especially the members of the Traverse City Golf and Country Club, I would like to thank you for an outstanding job installing our new irrigation system.Your crew was not only professional and organized but also worked tirelessly day in and day out to complete the project ahead of schedule. We received many positive comments on how your crew was able to work long hours every day and still make the course enjoyable to play during a major renovation.

Please feel free to use the Club as a reference for future projects as we would be happy to spread the word on how satisfied we are with your services and our new system.

Thanks again for the awesome job!”

“In July 2013, Thielen Turf Irrigation undertook the largest turf irrigation project ever completed in the state of Michigan. The project, the installation of a computerized system in Dow Gardens, a 110-acre botanical garden in Midland, Michigan, was completed in just over four months. The two wire system included 182 electric valves, all run off two Toro Sentinel Controllers, 1,500 sprinkler heads, and 160 quick couplers.Thielen Turf workers, under the supervision of Ben Thielen, were extremely efficient and, at all times respectful of the guests who continued to enjoy the Gardens during the construction. I was especially impressed by the communication during the project as Ben continually kept our management staff updated on what was being planned for the coming days and was always willing to adapt when events dictated it. In addition, the cleanup on the project was timely and very well done. On several occasions it was difficult, at day’s end, to see where they had installed pipe.

Having dealt with Thielen Turf in the past, we were pleased when they presented the most competitive bid. They did nothing, during this extremely large project, to diminish our enthusiasm. It is with great confidence that I recommend Thielen Turf to you and assure you that we will be working with them for all of our irrigation needs in the years to come.”
