Ransomes Jacobsen secures 800,000-euro golf course deal

An Irish golf course has bought more than 800,000 euros (£732,117) of Ransomes Jacobsen course maintenance equipment.

The 300-acre Bunclody Golf and Fishing Club, which opened in March this year bought equipment including pedestrian greens mowers, tees mowers, light fairway mowers, semi-rough rotary mowers, bunker rakes, utility vehicles, top dressers and a greens roller.   

Ransomes exclusive dealer for Ireland — Kevin Broderick — sold the equipment, which has a retail value of nearly £750,000.

Bunclody course superintendent Duncan O'Shaughnessy said: "The package we have taken from Kevin Broderick has given us a comprehensive range of course management machines that are ideal for our requirements here. With a great design and top notch equipment, our aim is to provide a golfing product that is the best in Carlow and Wexford, giving golfers the premier experience in the region."

The 7,164 yard course has eight greens staff including a full-time mechanic.
