Autumn finance for UK golf clubs

8.01am 11th September 2012 - Corporate

John Deere Financial has announced two new finance programmes for UK golf club customers this autumn.

These include a ‘buy now, pay later’ scheme designed to help the cash flow of clubs who may need immediate delivery of new machinery, but who want to wait until next year to pay, when their annual membership subscriptions are due. With this first scheme, clubs may order any new golf and turf machine from John Deere dealers at any time from now until 31st October 2012, with no need to pay until March 2013.

The second scheme runs from September 2012 to the end of April 2013, with customers making 1 + 1 annual payments at zero per cent interest for new golf and turf equipment orders placed with a dealer between now and January 2013. The finance is not taken up until delivery of the order, so clubs can choose to start paying for their new equipment at any time to suit their budget.

“Finance is more important than ever for golf courses in the current economic climate,” says John Deere Limited’s turf division sales manager Joedy Ibbotson. “Fixing their machinery and maintenance budgets, or deferring payments until membership subscriptions and green fees come in, means clubs can manage their budgets and costs more effectively. Alternatively, tailor made repayment schedules can always be arranged to match a club’s cash flow or other business objectives.”

Eligible equipment for both programmes includes John Deere walk-behind and ride-on cylinder and rotary mowers, compact and utility tractors, turf aerators and sprayers, and the full Gator utility vehicle range.

Other credit profiles are available on request, and the availability of finance is subject to status and to the usual terms and conditions – further details are available at or from John Deere dealers nationwide.
