Royal Dornoch, the Scottish links course, has invested £500,000 in new machinery, prompting Lely’s Toro national sales manager Jeff Anguige and area manager George Macdonald to pay a recent visit to seal the deal.

Commenting on the new arrivals, course manager Eoin Riddell says: “We stick with Toro because of the machines’ productivity and reliability, as well as the great back-up service from Lely and Toro. These benefits make our jobs much easier. Because – whether it’s the wider cut of our rough mower, the generous size of our sprayer tank or the technological advancements of the new greensmowers – we can get out on the course at 5am and be finished within four or five hours. That’s the most important thing – course presentation and playability, and golfers never knowing you’ve been there. So it was an easy decision to continue using Toro.”
