Green Tending To Denver Golf's Greens

Posted: Jan. 3rd, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

In an effort to save money and help improve the environment, Denver's golf courses have ordered new green tending equipment to maintain its greens and be cost effective. Denver Parks has invested their money in Jacobsen products and plan to save over $250k over the next 5 years on fuel and repair costs while also doing good on nature.

In an effort to catch up on deferred capital equipment purchases, Denver Parks and Recreation’s Golf Division recently made a significant investment in a fleet of Jacobsen,  turf maintenance equipment. The fleet, which includes mowers, fairway mowers, rough mowers, trim mowers and utility vehicles, will be used on Denver’s seven municipal golf courses and throughout several of the departments parks and green spaces.

 

Pamela C. Smith, Esq. CGCS Director of Agronomy for Denver Parks and Recreation says the decision to invest in Jacobsen mowers was both environmental and financial. “Not only were we looking to do the right thing environmentally, we also wanted to reduce costs,” said Smith. “Because of the advanced technology of the Jacobsen mowers, we were able to meet both objectives.”
