Fresh start for The Henley as rebrand includes new Toro deal

The Warwickshire club is aiming to be one of the best courses in the region

By ECG Newsdesk

It’s all change at The Henley after it appointed a new course manager and agreed its first ever machinery package deal with Toro as it aims to achieve its full potential.

Until recently, the club was known as Henley Golf and Country Club, but it has just completed a comprehensive rebrand and is now looking to forward to a bright future following the appointment of Adam Moss as its course manager just eight months ago.

POTENTIAL

“There’s a lot of potential in these 250 acres and 18-holes and my job is to help realise that potential,” said Moss. “There wasn’t the proper equipment to do a good job to start with; in fact when I first went into the shed I wondered where all the equipment had gone.”

Moss is now aiming to create a premier facility and, with that in mind, has helped the club agree a new deal with Toro for machinery to suit the parkland course.

He continued: “We have a five-year plan with the aim to create a premier golf club for the Midlands. We needed machines that would suit the site and bring out the best in it. Having used Toro before I was confident they could cope with its challenges and I could rely on them to help get the job done.”

DELIVERY

The club recently received delivery of a 28-strong fleet made up of greens, grounds and fairway mowers, aeration equipment, UTVs, sprayers and two TYM T503 tractors.

Lely Turfcare’s Jon Lewis along with local dealer Redtech advised Moss on the mix of machinery that would be best for the club.

He added: “The demo proved me right that Toro was what we needed to get the course back on track. The quality was evident and when we coupled that with the support from Lely and Redtech, to be honest, no one else came close.
