For more than a century, the greatest moments in golf have been shaped by Jacobsen mowers. One visit to the new website at and you'll discover why: Jacobsen are passionate about tradition, energized by innovation and committed to giving you the highest quality of cut possible. Like maintaining your turf, crafting the world's best-performing mowers is a job that's never done. And at Jacobsen, they can't imagine doing anything else.

Since 1921 Jacobsen mowers have been the glimpse of orange in the distance on golf courses and sports fields worldwide, and in 2021, the company celebrates 100-years in the turf industry.

Recognising the company's milestones and achievements over a century is important, but the focus on the future has never been stronger. This began with the relocation of manufacturing to the Turf Care Center of Excellence in Ipswich, England, where metal has been transformed into machines for 187 years at the Ransomes factory.

No one at the company expected the 100th year to come off the back of one of the most challenging many have had. Business is being conducted in different ways, with face to face meetings virtually non-existent, but this year Jacobsen are excited to launch several new online experiences including a brand new standalone Jacobsen website.

Vice President of Turf Simon Rainger explains: "As we move into our second century, we have a vast amount of exciting news and content to share including the launch of the new standalone Jacobsen website, and the introduction of the Eclipse 360 ELiTE and AR530.

"These are both very exciting products for us, and especially the Eclipse 360 ELiTE which is continuing our proud tradition of manufacturing battery powered machinery, but taking a big step forward using the latest lithium-ion technology.
