Macroom Golf Club in Co Cork, Ireland is situated in the centre of the town, and is accessed through the impressive castle arch, the former entrance to the Demense - the grounds belonging to a mansion - of Lady Olive Ardilaun. The club has recently purchased a Jacobsen Fairway 305 from local Ransomes Jacobsen distributor Kevin Broderick Ltd.
The Fairway 305 is a medium weight four-wheel drive, five unit fairway mower with excellent reliability and productivity. The floating head cutting units follow ground contours and rear roller brushed ensure a clean finish. Four-wheel drive is a standard feature providing greater traction and a fully adjustable suspension seat gives the operator a comfortable work station.
Kieran Morris is the head greenkeeper and leads a team of six greenkeeping staff at the 18-hole, 6,038 yard course. Commenting on the Fairway 305 he said,
"At almost 3 metres, the width of cut on the 305 is impressive. That translates into very good productivity, but the highlight is its quality of cut. The finish it leaves is excellent."
