Thank you to the BIGGA Scotland Members who made the time to attend the MTS Group knowledge sharing session and product demonstrations at the Westerwood Golf Resort in Cumbernauld Scotland on the 30th November. The day provided all with the opportunity to learn about the Bobcat specialist plant machinery and how the equipment can lend itself to golf course management, providing alternative methods to increase quality and reduce job time whilst managing cost and expenditure.
Thanks to the Westerwood Golf Resort part of the Q Hotels Group, our team was able to demonstrate the products in a like environment, which was of huge benefit to the attendees. Stuart Cameron, Head Greenkeeper at Airdrie golf club who was in attendance, explained “The day was great, it was really good to have the opportunity to see the machinery actually working and it gave me a much better idea of how the equipment could benefit us at Airdrie golf club, as opposed to just seeing it in a brochure or in a video.”
All appreciated the versatility of the compact Bobcat loaders along with the ease of which the wide variety of interchangeable attachments could be utilised. The strength of the Forestry Mulcher and Stump Grinder made short work of the tasks in hand. The Tree Transplanter demonstrated the ease and speed now available through utilising machinery. Other plant machinery displayed included a number of excavator’s ideal for course maintenance, both Bobcat and AFT Turf Trenchers and the Bobcat Wood Chipper.
In addition, the attendees had the opportunity to explore the advantages of the new Club Car’s Carryall utility vehicle range, in particular the diesel 4wd Carryall 1500, which was of particular interest thanks to its more rugged capability’s making it better suited to the turf industry.

It is a pleasure to work with MTS Golf and Utility Vehicles, the service and support they provide has been first class. We originally signed up for 14 brand new buggies for one year to sample working with the company.
