When pro and amateur golfers alike hit the fairways, more often than not they’re focusing on weather conditions, the layout of the course and the competition. While these people know a good 18 holes when they play a course, chances are most golfers spend little time considering the ins and outs of golf course development and grounds maintenance.
For those involved in the behind-the-scenes work of creating pristine putting greens, perfect fairways and challenging rough, however, maintaining golf courses and developing and manufacturing equipment for turfgrass professionals is a huge industry where precision and perfection are essential.
One company involved in the behind-the-scenes work of golf course maintenance is equipment manufacturer Jacobsen, A Textron Company. Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, the organization designs, engineers, manufactures and sells equipment to turfgrass professionals who maintain some of the finest golf courses and sports facilities throughout the globe. Jacobsen’s line of products includes walking greens, riding greens and fairway mowers, a full line of commercial rotary mowers, as well as utility vehicles, sprayers and aerators.
