Deal gives islanders high quality machines
Royal Jersey Golf Club is seeing an immediate return on the £250k it spent on a new fleet of turfcare equipment.
The club has been a major part of life on the island for the past 137 years and its new deal has seen it take delivery of two Greensmaster TriFlex Hybrid 3420 mowers, two Reelmaster 3550-D fairway mowers, a Multi Pro 5800-D sprayer, a Groundsmaster 3500-D rotary mower and five Workman MD utility vehicles.
Ben Blampied-Smyth, course manager at Royal Jersey, says the Reelmaster 3550-D and Groundsmaster 3500-D are his favourites in the new fleet.
“The new Reelmasters are great,” stated Blampied-Smyth. “We have undulating fairways here, so they’re fantastic at hugging the contours of the course.
“The Groundsmaster is also a favourite, proving to be very versatile. It’s particularly good at cutting the tee banks and getting under the bushes, leaving a high quality cut every time.
“We’ve bought a five-year finance deal, which has allowed us to stay on budget.”
