Brocket Hall goes Orange with a hint of Green and Blue
By Peter Driver
Brocket Hall Golf Club's turf maintenance fleet has taken on a definite orange hue following the latest delivery of equipment from local dealer, Ernest Doe and Sons.
Course manager John Moorhouse has added more Jacobsen equipment including the latest AR3 surrounds and approaches mower; an AR250 fine cut rotary mower for surrounds and semi-rough; an LF4677 seven cylinder, light fairway mower; and a further Greens King VI, making a total of five on his fleet.
However, it didn't stop there; John also purchased another Cushman Turf-Truckster utility vehicle which joins the other three on his fleet for spraying and top dressing duties; and he also added a Turfco WideSpin 1530 top dresser, a Wiedenmann XF deep aerator and a New Holland TN75S tractor.
"When making our purchasing decisions we always look at all the equipment on the market, making value judgements that best suit our requirements for the two fine courses here at Brocket Hall", John said. "As a manufacturer, Ransomes Jacobsen has a complete range of all the major equipment for course maintenance and their dealer, Ernest Doe, has access to many other items, which gives them an advantage of being almost a one-stop shop. Their back-up support is good and we have an excellent working relationship with Steve Bush at their Bennington depot.
"Our aim is to provide golfers with the ultimate golfing experience and to do this we have to provide the utmost service levels right across the business. Quality equipment, trusted business partnerships supported by good after sales is how we continue to achieve this."
