Designed by the greatest golfer to have ever played, Jack Nicklaus, Mount Juliet Golf Club is widely regarded as being home to the leading championship parkland layout in Ireland.
Set across the 492 acres of the Mount Juliet Estate, the ‘Nicklaus Signature’ course has hosted three Irish Opens and two American Express World Golf Championships. In February 2016, the club had an ageing fleet that was becoming expensive and hard to maintain, resulting in the need for an update.
As part of its wider plans to invest in its golf courses and hotels across Ireland, Tetrarch Capital were keen to raise standards in order to continue attracting major tournaments and return the course to a playing condition that reflects its status as the number one parkland course in Ireland. The new Estate Management identified an immediate need to replace the fleet of equipment maintaining the course and grounds.
Following a competitive tendering process, Tetrarch chose Lely, now Reesink Ireland, to provide a new Toro fleet valued at over €800,000.
The clubs chose the latest advances in golf equipment, including hybrid greens mowers, to present the course. Dedicated rolling was been reintroduced to increase green speeds, providing constant tournament standard presentation.
Every aspect of course presentation was looked at, with the fleet comprising over 20 individual pieces of equipment. Between the Reelmaster 5610-D, Groundsmaster 4300, Workman MDX-D and many more, the club was able to invest in the latest fairway, trim and rough mowers, sprayer, sand dressers, tractors and utility vehicles.
The Pro Core 648 aerator, Pro Force blower and Toro Pro-Pass 200 top dresser were noted as stand out products by the then estate manager and deputy estate manager.
AND THE CONCLUSION
The new, more modern equipment proved to not only be more efficient and reliable, but enhanced the overall presentation of the course. Primarily bought for the golf course, the equipment was also used across the Estate, which as well the grounds, gardens and residential area, includes seven hectares of horse paddocks, tennis courts, trails and walkways.
With the new fleet firmly established in the estate team’s daily routine, the golf course retained its status as the number one parkland course in Ireland and continues to receive many accolades.
The speed, precision and quality of finish that the Pro Core delivers is phenomenal, and it has added greatly to our ability to aerate greens and fairways on a more regular basis and in an efficient manner.
