Gullane course manager hails Toro performance

STEWART DUFF, the course manager at Gullane – host venue for the 2018 Scottish Open and Ladies Scottish Open – has hailed Toro for the impact the machinery had on the conditioning of the links for the events. Among the pieces of equipment which arrived at the East Lothian venue for the two big weeks were the Reelmaster 5010-H hybrid fairway mowers and the Workman GTX Electric utility vehicles, while the club’s own two Toro ProCore 648 pedestrian aerators and a Toro ProPass 200 topdresser came into their own with the seeding and sanding in the recovery programme.

“The RM5010 mowers are just a great piece of kit,” said Duff. “The quality of cut and after-cut appearance are superb and it’s quiet. Plus, the electric motors mean there is no chance of oil leaks.  The new electric Workman, meanwhile, was completely quiet and really comfortable, with little extras like phone chargers and places to store bits and bobs. We currently have a fleet of utility vehicles which is not Toro, but we will certainly be changing it to be so.”

At Gullane, Duff and his team also used the Toro Greensmaster Triflex Hybrid 3420 mower, six of which he used on a daily basis to cut tees and aprons.
