“We chose O’Brien after liaising with their in-house team and looking through their array of successful projects, it gave us the peace of mind and confidence to know we were making the right choice. We haven’t been disappointed so far. The pitches are well underway and due to be seeded shortly, the clubhouse construction has started, O’Brien has been nothing but helpful, accommodating and productive, we look forward to seeing the end results.”
