Gleneagles Golf Resort in Scotland has recently renewed its five-year exclusivity deal with turf maintenance machinery manufacturer Toro and its distributor Lely UK.

The Perthshire resort plays host to the prestigious Ryder Cup in September 2014, with the updated Toro equipment particularly helping prepare the PGA Centenary Course for the three-day tournament’s matches. The King’s and The Queen’s championship courses will also continue to benefit from Toro machinery.

Commenting on the continued partnership with Toro, Gleneagles golf courses and estate manager Scott Fenwick says: “We’re delighted to have renewed our contract with Toro, which will see us through to the Ryder Cup in 2014, and beyond. As we prepare to host one of the world’s greatest sporting events, it’s even more important that our courses are in the best possible condition. Our continued work with Toro will help to achieve this.”

The Toro Company’s corporate accounts manager Andrew Brown adds: “We are delighted that Gleneagles has once again entrusted Toro and our distributor Lely UK to provide the quality of products and service the resort has come to rely on over the past eight years. The Ryder Cup will be an ideal opportunity for Gleneagles to showcase the exceptionally high standard of course preparation it offers to members and guests from all over the world, and Toro is honoured to play its part in that success story.”
