Site of 14 Open Championships since 1892, Royal St George’s in Sandwich, Kent, was the first course outside Scotland to stage golf’s oldest Major championship. It is the latest in a growing number of Open venues to partner with Bernhard Grinders.
Adam White, Mechanic at Royal St George’s, said: “We’re amazed by the speed and intuitive design of the Bernhard system, not to mention the dramatically improved quality of cut. We feel confident that our mowing fleet is now in the safe hands of Bernhard Grinders and the greenkeeping team is thrilled with how much easier it is to optimise machine performance.”
Steve Nixon, International Sales Manager for Bernhard, said: “We’re excited to see Royal St George’s has quickly become a Bernhard convert and is realising such significant benefits from our products. We like to say that when you regularly sharpen with our grinders it’s like having a new mower every month.”
The club, ranked 29th in GOLF Magazine’s 2013 Top-100 World rankings, purchased Anglemaster 4000 and Express Dual 4000DX (with Express Relief) models.
As the premier version of the industry-leading Express Dual, the Express Dual 4000DX is renowned for its ease of use, lightning-speed, reliability and safety-first features. The need for lapping is eliminated, thereby reducing maintenance costs while enhancing turf health.
Matching the speed, ease and accuracy of its Express Dual counterpart, the Anglemaster 4000 grinds bedknives to within one thousandth of an inch. It comes standard with the new, ultra-durable SuperBlue grindstone. Mounting of bedknives is simple and the unique central-grind position ensures the reel and bedknife work in perfect harmony.
Well known by the professional golf Tours worldwide as the leading blade sharpening machines, Bernhard Grinders ensure maintenance equipment at ‘Top 100’ mainstays, as well as daily-fee, private, resort and municipal courses, is always in ideal cutting condition.
