The Netherlands' biggest golf resort Golfbaan Spaarnwoude buys new Ransomes machines

The largest golf complex in the Netherlands has updated its fleet of Ransomes Jacobsen course maintenance equipment.

Golfbaan Spaarnwoude, the 66-hole complex situated 25 minutes from Amsterdam city centre, uses contractor Oranjewoud Realisatie to manage its tees, fairways and roughs.

They have purchased two LF-4677 seven unit fairway mowers, a TR-3 tees mower with grass boxes and an HR-6010 rotary mower for maintaining the roughs.

The equipment was supplied by Jacobsen’s Dutch distributor Van der Pols.

The 27ha of fairways, and 35ha of rough host 1.7 million rounds of golf a year on a variety of courses for players of different levels.

Oranjewoud project manager for sport Jaap Schuurman said: "Of course productivity is important at this very busy golf course. Capacity is required to keep up with the pace, but the quality of the job has been the centrepiece of our long-lasting relationship with Spaarnwoude. With this investment, our fleet is now modern and fully up-to-date, and we are equipped with the latest technology to again raise the quality level at the course."
