The Toro Company and the EGCOA have announced their renewed partnership whereby The Toro Company continues to be recognised as the preferred supplier of turf maintenance equipment and irrigation to the European Golf Course Owners Association (EGCOA). The EGCOA membership currently numbers approximately 600 golf course owners across 24 European countries.

As a worldwide leader in providing golf maintenance equipment and irrigation systems, Toro has deepened its relationship with an organisation that shares a common commitment to the game’s continued growth and success. The European Golf Course Owner’s Association is dedicated to serving the needs of golf course owners throughout Europe and helping build stronger business models through education initiatives, best-practice sharing, and partnerships with other leading industry stakeholders such as The Toro Company.

“We strongly believe that the Toro – EGCOA partnership is a great fit. Both parties are committed to growing the game of golf in Europe,” said Brad Hamilton, director of golf marketing for Toro International. “Owners and superintendents around the world count on Toro for innovative products that provide reliable performance, helping them increase course playability and profitability. We are excited to continue our partnership with an outstanding organization that continues to grow within the industry and we look forward to working to meet the needs of EGCOA members.”

“The EGCOA is delighted to continue the partnership with Toro,” said Marcel Welling, president of the EGCOA. “We believe Toro is committed to the highest level of service for golf course owners in Europe, and the quality they deliver helps owners improve the management and cost of their maintenance operations. Toro’s wealth of knowledge is valuable for all owners, which we’ll continue to tap into through our strong relationship.”

With 107 distributors in 122 countries, The Toro Company provides a comprehensive range of innovative turf equipment and service solutions to make turf maintenance easier and more efficient for professional users. Toro is also the current preferred turf maintenance equipment and irrigation systems partner for the National Golf Course Owners Association (NGCOA) in the United States.
