About JCL Turf Services

Value – Experience – Innovation

JCL Turf Services began in 2008 and in 2015 acquired distribution of Maredo equipment in Canada. JCL works with key distributors across Canada to provide sales and service for this innovative equipment line. Pat Differ is a former golf course superintendent at Point Grey Golf Club and Ledgeview Golf Club in Abbotsford BC and has been active in the turfgrass business since 1973.

The Maredo owner and master designer Marinus Reincke in the Netherlands has a long history in the turf management business dating back to the Vertidrain which was his fathers invention and design.

Pat Differs background in soil and plant chemistry has seen him active across Canada, into the USA and across Europe doing seminars on plant and soil management going back to the introduction of biostimulants to the golf world in general in the late 80’s. Tissue analysis using them Karsten NIR spectrometer was innovation in the making back them and now, the same can be said with the Maredo equipment which is a game changer saving time and money for users.
