The highest compliment we receive is a referral from one of our clients.
"We are pleased to write this reference letter for The Henderson Company. Two years ago, we hired Chaz and his team off the recommendation of our architect on retainer, Jim Cervone. They constructed 3 new greens and installed over a thousand yards of cart path. We found the entire Henderson staff to be very knowledgeable, professional, and co-operative throughout the entire construction process. In addition, after construction completion, they have been responsive and thorough in addressing any minor issues associated with the project. We look forward to using the Henderson Company in the future. We would recommend the Henderson Company to you without hesitation."Paul Schell - Golf Course Director - Lake Shore Country ClubPaul Schell Lake Shore PDF
"To Whom it May Concern: I am writing to recommend Henderson and Company, Inc. as an outstanding golf course construction contractor. Several years ago, the Bucknell Golf Club hired Mark Fine to create a master plan for our golf course. He recommended a church pew bunker on our third hole. This was to honor Mr. Emil Loeffler, the original architect for Bucknell Golf Course. Chaz Henderson was hired for this project because of his familiarity with the church pew bunker at Oakmont Country Club in Pittsburgh, PA. Henderson and Company did an outstanding job in the design and construction of our church pew bunker here at Bucknell Golf Course. The project was completed in a timely manner and on budget. I would recommend him without reservation for any project you are considering."Charles E. Lincicome, CGCS - Superintendent - Bucknell Golf ClubBucknell Golf Club PDF
"During the last few years, my firm has had the opportunity to work with Mr. Chaz Henderson of Henderson & Company, Inc. Throughout this time frame, I have found Chaz to be a straight forward, honest, and hard working contractor. I would not hesitate to invite his company to bid any of my projects as I am confident that they would be performed to the highest quality in a timely manner. Of particular interest, in our past association is a project involving the construction of nine new golf holes at the Blue Ridge Trail Golf Course in Mountaintop, PA. These golf holes were constructed on a beautiful but rugged piece of property in the Pocono region. The original contractor was relieved of the work due to the fact that he was not properly performing to his contract. The course was left in a complete state of disarray from not being finished and not being protected from months of weather without any stabilization. Henderson & Company was hired to finish the work on this project. The finished product is an outstanding composition of golf holes that are fun to play. Chaz’s company was able to finish the work with excellent results, on the time line agreed upon with the owner, and on budget without excessive change orders. They even repaired numerous areas of the original work that needed attention. I am aware that this course has retained Henderson & Company to return to the course to perform new projects on areas of the facility that were not worked on previously. As stated above, Henderson & Company is welcome to bid any work that is generated from my firm. I am confident in their ability to perform above expectations. Upon review of this letter, should you have any other questions, do not hesitate to give me a call."Daniel Schlegel, ASGCA, Principal, Schlegel Golf Course DesignDaniel Schlegel - Schlegel Golf Course Design PDF
"I am writing this Letter of Reference on behalf of Chaz Henderson and the work he and his company performed in the fall of 1998 and the spring of 1999 as part of a Ron Forse and Jim Nagle designed Master Plan Renovation at the AW Tillinghast designed Valley Country Club. The scope of the work entailed the building of three USGA Spec greens, the renovation and/or construction of seventy bunkers, the modification or construction of several tees, and the construction of several earth features to enhance the strategic playability of the golf course. The work was completed on schedule and was greeted with resounding approval by membership. There are two camps in golf course renovation work. The first involves bringing in a big company, blowing up the golf course, and getting the work done as quickly as possible. The second option is to bring in a smaller company, cause less disruption, and try to remain open while the coursework in completes. Chaz’s willingness to keep to a tight footprint throughout the process allowed us to keep the course open and in turn keep the members only slightly inconvenienced throughout the entire process. I credit Chaz’s personality as the biggest reason that I enjoyed working with him. He is genuinely interested in respecting the classic architecture that he is renovating, and is intent on seeing that the work in completed correctly. I have always found him to be approachable, and I appreciate that he is responsive to any concerns set forth by architects or the membership. Chaz enjoys what he does and that is reflected in the product that he produces. I have been able to maintain a relationship with Chaz to this day and I will continue to recommend his work to anyone looking for a golf course renovation contractor."Eric Reed, Golf Course Superintendent, Valley Country ClubEric Reed PDF

"Over the past ten years, Henderson & Company has completed various renovation work at Blue Ridge Trail Golf Club, a 27 hole facility in northeast Pennsylvania. The work has ranged in scope from simple drainage to construction of greens, tees, bunkers and major water features. Chaz has been great to deal with and his work outstanding, within budget and on time. After previously working with contractors who have their own agenda, it was refreshing to work with someone who is easy to communicate with and has a passion for what he does. He will work closely with the Superintendent and Architect to bring their vision to fruition. I highly recommend Chaz and his company to any golf course who is considering renovation work. If anyone would like to discuss his work in more detail, please feel free to contact me."Duane Schell, Golf Course Superintendant, Blue Ridge Trail Golf Club Duane Schell Blue Ridge Trail Golf Club PDF
