About Us

Brett Herlocker is the owner of South Georgia Turf Management. He and his wife Ashley have been married for 13 years and counting. Brett and Ashley are originally from Douglas, Georgia, but have been in Valdosta for nine years. They have three children: Eliza—eight, Ryder—six, Rowan—one, and baby number four who is on the way!

Brett began playing golf when he was six; he loved being outdoors and quickly grew to love being on the golf course. When he was fourteen, he started his first job working on a golf course, and his love for turf grew from there! Brett would go on to the University of Georgia to study Turfgrass Management and receive his bachelor’s degree in 2008. After graduating, Brett and Ashley moved to Savannah, Georgia where he became the assistant superintendent at The Landings Club.

In 2013, the Herlockers decided they were ready to move closer to home, and Brett was fortunate to become the assistant superintendent of Kinderlou Forest Golf Club here in Valdosta. While working full-time at Kinderlou, Brett started South Georgia Turf Management in 2015. In 2021, Brett and Ashley decided it was time to fully commit to South Georgia Turf Management and went full time with their business. They feel blessed to have watched it grow since then! Brett says, “I truly love the challenge each lawn presents and enjoy meeting each customer I come into contact with. It is very rewarding to watch a lawn come back to life and to see how satisfied the customers are when they get the lawn that they have always wanted.”

South Georgia Turf Management is fully licensed and insured, and we look forward to working with you to make your lawn as flawless as possible.
