Upgraded golf course fleet promises huge fuel savings

Bowood Golf & Country Club has bought a fleet of more than 20 vehicles worth over £260,000 to work on 80ha of countryside in Wiltshire.

Ransomes Jacobsen dealer TH White supplied an AR522 five-unit rotary mower, an LF3800 light-fairway mower and an Eclipse 322 greens mower.

Course manager Jaey Goodchild, who also bought a diesel-powered Smithco Super Star bunker rake, said: "We use the AR522 on tee surrounds, semi rough and areas around the club house."

The club has also replaced 16 petrol-powered golf buggies with 20 of E-Z-GO's latest electric RXV golf cars, said estate manger Charles Leather.

"They have resulted in a significant saving on fuel costs," he added.
