Course manger Robert Patterson renewed the clubs deal with John Deere and bought the machines on a five-year credit finance deal from Alpha Plus Groundcare.
The club has traded in 19 older models as part of the deal, which will see four new hybrid greens mowers, four walk-behind greens mowers, two fairway mowers, a semi-roughs mower, a tees and surrounds mower, two compact tractors, an aerator, five utility vehicles and a Pro Gator joining the fleet.
The club, at the Bridge of Don, Aberdeen, is the sixth oldest in the world and is ranked in the UK’s top 20 best courses.
Patterson said: The Walker Cup will be the biggest tournament we’ve ever had here. The course is pretty much set up already, so it’s just a case of trying to polish it all up for 2011. The course has improved over the years, the presentation in particular is the best it’s ever been, and a great part of that can be put down to the use of newer and better machinery.
