Heritage Links, a division of Little Rock-based Lexicon, Inc. that specializes in golf course construction and management, has acquired Maine-based Environmental Solutions, a golf course irrigation, drainage, site design, and construction firm.

Terms of the private transaction were not disclosed.

“This partnership positions Heritage Links to grow our footprint in strategic markets while also expanding our resources, knowledge and expertise,” said Jon O’Donnell, president, Heritage Links.

“Most importantly, this acquisition will allow us to provide our clients with even greater service and an unmatched level of expertise in the industry. The company’s founder, Warren Michaelsen, has built a thriving business that is well-known and respected throughout the golf course irrigation world, especially in the Carolinas and the Southeast. We are thrilled to welcome them to the Heritage Links family,” O’Donnell added.

Environmental Solutions was founded in 1986 as Irrigation Systems of Maine Inc., in response to a demand for irrigation system installations and service in the area.

The company grew its offerings over the years to include golf course irrigation installation and service, golf drainage systems, golf-site construction and golf pump stations. Today, Environmental Solutions employs a staff of nearly 40 and has revenue around $10 million.

“We have enjoyed a long working relationship with Heritage Links, and we are pleased to merge our teams,” said Michaelsen. “This partnership will allow us to collaborate on key projects in the U.S. and beyond and expand our offerings while retaining our company’s footprint and staff. We are excited for all the new opportunities this collaboration will bring.”

Heritage Links is a charter member of the Golf Course Builders Association of America, offering a diverse range of services, including new course construction; renovation and restoration; irrigation installation; sports field construction; and construction management.
