The Home of Golf remains home to a full fleet of Toro turf maintenance machinery after St Andrews Links Trust recently renewed its partnership with Toro and its distributor Lely UK for a further five years.

Spanning seven courses, 117 holes, around 900 acres, 230,000 rounds of golf a year and 600 years of history – the needs of St Andrews Links are immense. Toro is proud to be an official supplier to the world’s most renowned golf venue and play a part in keeping its hallowed courses in pristine condition.

Commenting on the recently renewed deal, Euan Loudon, chief executive of St Andrews Links Trust, says: “We have had a long and successful relationship with Toro and are delighted to be renewing the agreement with them as an official supplier.

“Maintaining the historic courses at St Andrews Links, including the Old Course, in top-class condition is our prime duty and working closely with Toro has been key to achieving arguably the best conditioning on the courses in modern times. We look forward to developing the partnership with innovative new approaches and technology to ensure that we continue to set the benchmark for effective and sustainable management of links courses.”
