Green-keepers put groundbreaking ideas into action

March 31, 2017

During November last year we (approved Bobcat and Club Car dealers and hire providers MTS Group) held our first knowledge share day working in conjunction with BIGGA. The event which was held at the Westerwood Hotel and Golf Resort, Cumbernauld was attended by over 30 Scottish greenkeepers who on the day had a variety of working demonstrations showcasing how our range of compact plant equipment and specialist attachments can be used to reduce costs and increase efficiency. Equipment such as the Bobcat Tree Spade, Mulching Head, Trencher and Tree Transplanter were all shown as working demonstrations to educate the attendees on how they can make short work of labour intensive tasks.

Iain Black, Managing Director of the MTS Group explained, “By creating awareness of the capability of the attachments outside of their traditional home of construction, the ground care community are now leveraging new ways of working, and being able to hire a Bobcat with a number of attachments has been of real benefit to a number of clubs.”

Course Manager, Ronnie Myles at Buchanan Castle Golf Club has found the Bobcat Tree Stump Grinder and Tree Transplanter attachments of great use over the seasonal course maintenance. Ronnie explained “We had worked with MTS for a number of years for our golf buggy hire, however it was only after visiting them at BTME that we learned about the specialist Bobcat equipment they offer. We had over 30 diseased trees which had to be felled and the Bobcat Stump Grinder made short work of removing their stumps. At the same time, we also hired the Tree Transplanter attachment to plant 30 new trees to replace the ones removed. By hiring both attachments at the same time we were able to reduce the overall cost by only renting one Bobcat loader from MTS Group.”

At MTS Group we are both approved dealers and hire providers for Club Car and Bobcat. We operate from four locations throughout the UK including Wakefield – West Yorkshire, Cumbernauld – Lanarkshire, Birtley – Co. Durham and Leigh – Lancashire.

Andrew Fairnie – Golf Services Manager, The Gleneagles Hotel

Our guests have high expectations when they come to golf at Gleneagles, and the classic aesthetics and high quality finish on the Club Car vehicles have met their needs perfectly.

The GPS system in particular has been very popular – in addition to providing course information, it even allows golfers to email themselves their score card to review at home.

Nick Rushworth – Golf Operations Director, MacDonald Linden Hall

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.

We were pleased with the service and the product provided and have since signed up for the next few seasons and hopefully with many more to come after that.
