Historic venues prepare for Open Championships

12.20am 7th June 2005 - Corporate

Pinehurst Number 2 and the Old Course at St. Andrews are rich in history and familiar to golf’s legends. In addition, both are familiar with The Toro Company (NYSE:TTC), which provides commercial maintenance equipment and irrigation systems to both venues as well as to golf courses worldwide. Toro has built strong relationships with golf courses for nearly a century and Toro equipment has cared for Pinehurst Number 2 since 1927
“Professional tournaments continue to raise the bar in golf by ensuring the game’s most rigorous and fair tests of skill,” said Mike Hoffman, president and CEO of The Toro Company. “As the game evolves, so does Toro. We are committed to developing innovative solutions to help achieve optimal course conditions, and we are proud to partner with Pinehurst and St. Andrews to provide superior golf experiences.”
“Toro works hard to eliminate the problems that keep superintendents up at night,” Hoffman added. “This is especially critical for those managing at the championship level, but equally beneficial for the average course in a competitive environment or a private course with demanding members. One of our latest innovations is an aerator with tires that does not run over the cores. What sounds so simple actually translates to easier clean up and less mess on the green. It’s a difference golfers notice and superintendents appreciate.”
