New greenkeeping equipment for Lanark

 

Lanark Golf Club, located in the Upper Clyde Valley in Scotland, has recently taken delivery of an Eclipse 322 greens mower as part of a larger machinery package from Jacobsen. The mower maintains the course’s 18 greens and short nine-hole course. The delivery was facilitated by local Jacobsen dealer, Fairways GM.

 

Lanark Golf Club currently operates a fleet of Jacobsen machinery, consisting of a Tri-King for tees and surrounds, an LF3800 light-fairway mower, an LF570, an Iseki 5470 and a Turfco 1530 widespin top dresser. An Eclipse 322 greens mower and an AR522 for rough are new additions this season.

Jim Lyons, the club’s long-standing head greenkeeper estimates that the Eclipse 322 has saved the club 45% on diesel costs, whilst also keeping the club’s neighbours happy.

“They seem very pleased that the noise has now been reduced, as the electric Eclipse 322 is a very quiet machine,” he said.
