Ransomes Jacobsen, the Ipswich-based manufacturer of turf maintenance equipment, provided tournament support at the recent Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open held at the Castle Stuart Golf Links near Inverness.

The European Tour event was won by Jeev Milkha Singh with a 12 foot birdie putt at the first extra hole during a sudden-death play-off with Francesco Molinari.

Course manager Chris Haspell and his team use Jacobsen SLF-1880 light fairway mowers on the links and these were supplemented with four additional machines plus Cushman utility vehicles. Technical staff from the company’s European headquarters inIpswich, were also present to help with the increased maintenance requirements.

Commenting at the conclusion of the event he said: “Having additional technicians on site is fantastic during the week, especially when they have a wealth of knowledge like the guy from Jacobsen. Without the availability of the additional 1880s along with the run-arounds it would make the week much harder to run. We really appreciate the support that Ransomes Jacobsen afford us and look forward to their continued support next year should it be needed.”
