Ransomes Jacobsen opens golf course at Ipswich HQ

Turf equipment manufacturer Ransomes Jacobsen has opened a golf course at its headquarters in Ipswich.

Managing director David Withers thanked James Edwards of Swan Golf Designs, the architects of the course; Rainbird Europe who supplied the irrigation system; Tarmac Topsport providers of all the rootzone material and Barenbrug for the grass seed types used around the course.

Withers also thanked Golf Environment Organisation for their support; as well as Mike Wood for his guidance on indigenous planting for the lake and surrounds, and Grassform, who were the main contractors for the construction.

This has been a great project, and we are so pleased with the result, which reflects the quality of the team we put together," said Withers.

"We have about 1000 visitors a year coming through our Ipswich facility and we can now demonstrate our machines as well as our acknowledged environmental leadership.

Ransomes Jacobsen was a sponsor for Horticulture Week's Landscape & Amenity Awards.
