Newquay Golf Club, in Cornwall, has dramatically improved its turf care with the help of Toro.
Since Dan Kendle, head greenkeeper at Newquay, arrived at the links in 2014, he has been steadily adding Toro to his arsenal and, slowly but surely, Newquay’s turf has gone in the right direction.
“When I arrived the turf was in a very sorry state,” said Kendle. “There was a lot of disease scarring on the greens and the sward was very weak. It’s a hard working course, open 365 days of the year and it needed a lot of improvement.”
Kendle praised the impact of the pedestrian aerator, the Toro ProCore 648, in particular.
“One of the early arrivals, the ProCore is one of our most invaluable pieces of kit. With interchangeable tines, it will do anything and everything when it comes to aeration.”
