Toulouse, France: Ransomes Jacobsen and its French branch, Ransomes Jacobsen France, have signed a preferred supplier agreement with Golf National for the next five years following a tender late in 2015.
The prestigious golf course, which belongs to the French Federation of Golf and will host the Ryder Cup in 2018, has demonstrated its confidence in Ransomes Jacobsen France, who has supplied equipment since 2010.
Opened to the public in 1990, the venue hosts multiple national and international competitions every year, including the French Open. It consists of three courses: the 18-hole Albatross championship course; the 18-hole Aigle course and the nine-hole Oiselet, mainly used for training.
Two years from now, Golf National will host the Ryder Cup on the renovated Albatross course. It will be unveiled at the end of June for the 2016 Open de France.
To ensure that all of the courses are maintained in pristine condition, a total of 70 items of turf maintenance equipment will be delivered shortly, including 36 mowers, 21 utility vehicles and 13 miscellaneous products.
One of the main contractual commitments made by Ransomes Jacobsen and its French branch concerns the preparation and support for the Open de France.
This obligation will take the form of regular technical training for the Golf National staff to ensure the correct use and maintenance procedures for the entire fleet in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications.
In the run-up to the event, the products will be tested in tournament conditions for a week and 24-hour technical support will be provided by representatives from both Ransomes Jacobsen in England and France during the entire week of the Open.
Furthermore, a number of additional tournament support machines will be assisting the intensive maintenance essential to the smooth running of the competition.
Ransomes Jacobsen is an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
