Royal Birkdale chooses John Deere walk-behinds
"We had demonstrations of all the main hand mowers on the market, but our seven full-time greens staff preferred the John Deere machines because of their simplicity and user friendly features," said Chris.
"We've had a John Deere 2500 greens mower here for the last three years, so we know we can rely on good parts and service back-up from the dealer.
"We'll be getting the new mowers delivered this March so that the staff can get used to operating them for major competitions," he added. "These include the 2005 Amateur Championship in May/June and the Weetabix Women's British Open in July."
