Richard Stanley, Course Manager at Doncaster Town Moor Golf club has returned to his local Ransomes Jacobsen dealer, Golf & Turf Machinery and purchased additional turf maintenance equipment from the Jacobsen brand.
The course is situated in the centre of Doncaster Racecourse and is a free draining heathland course, playable all year round and reputed to be one of the best winter courses in South Yorkshire.
Richard's latest acquisitions are a HR5111 bat-wing rotary for maintaining the rough and an AR3 triplex rotary for the semi-rough.
"I've been running an older HR5111 for the past seven years and it's been bullet-proof, absolutely trouble-free," he said, "so there was no reason to change. It's in use three full days a week cutting all rough areas to 3". The AR3 has the reliability of the HR5111, but stripes up the semi-rough leaving a great presentation.
Doncaster Town Moor Golf Club has occupied the site since 1923 and in recent years the clubhouse, Neathherds House, was demolished to accommodate the building of the Doncaster Dome complex. The membership relocated on a temporary basis initially and then managed to purchase the former Doncaster Rovers Supporters Club building negotiating a 60 year lease.
