Loyal at the Royal

Royal Belfast Golf Club renews five year agreement with Brodericks.
The oldest golf club in Ireland, the Royal Belfast, has signed a successive five-year exclusive preferred supplier agreement with Brodericks Northern Ireland, the Ransomes Jacobsen dealer for the province.
Assistant course manager Harry Creighton (right), speaking recently after taking delivery of further turf maintenance equipment valued at over £100,000 said, "We have received excellent support from Brodericks over the past five years and this, coupled with the Ransomes and Jacobsen product line up, has provided a package that suits our requirements perfectly.
With the tradition here at Royal Belfast it is vitally important that we maintain the highest standards for our members. We are fortunate to occupy beautiful and mature parkland setting on the edge of Belfast Lough which benefits from superb views to the Antrim hills beyond. We are proud of the high level of presentation that we achieve and this latest equipment and the efforts of the greenkeeping team will ensure that these exacting standards are maintained."
The 18-hole, par 70 course was constructed in 1925 to a design by H C Colt, an eminent course architect of the time, who also designed the Royal Portrush course. It remains largely unchanged to this day.
