Manila, Philippines: The Jacobsen Eclipse 322 and Eclipse 2 greens mowers were among the star turns at the Philippine Golf Course Management Conference, the second event in the Asian Golf Industry Federation (AGIF) series of Turfgrass Management Seminars and Field Days in 2016.
Hosted at The Orchard Golf and Country Club, a Golf Facility Member of the AGIF, more than 110 golf course superintendents, course maintenance managers, golf directors, club managers and golf industry partners attended the event in which Jacobsen was a sponsor.
The two-day seminar was presented by the AGIF and consisted of a series of presentations from well-known golf course representatives including Jose Dagdagan, General Manager at Ayala South Links in the Philippines, Jack Imperial, Tournament Director of the Philippine Golf Tour, and The Orchard’s Golf Course Management Director Denis Nuevo.
The second day of seminars included field demonstrations and an equipment exhibition.
Jacobsen supported the event as a sponsor together with Philippines dealer, Formost Machineries and Resources Inc.
The Jacobsen Eclipse 322 and Eclipse 2 greens mowers were on display on the putting green of the course, and demonstrations were conducted by Josh Gagnuss, Product Support Manager.
Commenting on Jacobsen’s sponsorship of the event, Chuck Greif, Managing Director Asia Pacific, said: “We are delighted to have been a part of this year’s Philippine Golf Course Management Conference. Jacobsen has a commitment to supporting educational initiatives within the industry, and we continue to build strong relationships with AGIF and golf course professionals in doing so.
“The demonstration of our Eclipse 2 greens mower was also very successful. Many attendees showed a great interest in the mower’s impressive productivity and quality of cut, and a number of demonstrations at various golf courses have been set up as a result.”
March saw the staging of the AGIF Turfgrass Management Exposition in Pattaya, Thailand. Other similar events this year will be held in Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan and Vietnam.
