Royal Jersey Golf Club spends £224,000 on Toro equipment

Royal Jersey Golf Club, situated on the east coast of Jersey in the Channel Islands, has spent nearly a quarter of a million pounds on a new fleet of Toro equipment.

In a £224k five-year finance deal with local Island dealership The Jersey Farmers Trading Union (JFTU), made in conjunction with distributors Lely UK, the club has taken delivery of two Greensmaster TriFlex Hybrid 3420 mowers, two Reelmaster 3550-D fairway mowers, a Multi Pro 5800-D sprayer, a Groundsmaster 3500-D rotary mower and five Workman MD utility vehicles.

Ben Blampied-Smyth, course manager, said:  "The new Reelmasters are great. We have undulating fairways here, so they're fantastic at hugging the contours of the course.

"The Groundsmaster is also a favourite, proving to be very versatile. It's particularly good at cutting the tee banks and getting under bushes, leaving a high quality cut every time."

Blampied-Smyth added that feedback from the club's mechanic has also been great. "He's said that
the new Toro greens mowers keep the height of cut better than our previous mowers and that there has been less maintenance required on the blades."
