Bali, Indonesia: Jacobsen has hosted a three-day dealer training event at Bukit Pandawa, Bali’s newest golfing facility.
Eight dealerships from around Southeast Asia attended the event where full training was provided on a range of machinery. Products included the Jacobsen Truckster XD and SprayTek, the Eclipse greens mower and the LF570 fairway mower.
The gathering got underway with a welcome reception at the Meliá Bali Resort in Nusa Dua followed by a full day of product training and discussions.
The event concluded with presentations from Jacobsen about communications, marketing and other support that is available for dealerships in the region.
Reflecting on the dealership training, Chuck Greif, Managing Director for Jacobsen in the APAC region, said: “This event is part of a global effort to provide our dealerships with an intimate knowledge and understanding of the Jacobsen product range.
“The technology and engineering at Jacobsen is always advancing, so it is vital that we keep our dealer staff informed and up-to-date with this information.
Don Ellsworth, Golf Course Superintendent at Bukwit Pandawa, was pleased to host the training days at the newly-opened golf course in Bali.
He said: “It was an achievement for us to open the course and the clubhouse in time to be able to host Jacobsen. To have so many people attend the event was a joy for us to see. A lot of hard work has gone into developing this new facility, and it was fantastic to see it come into its own.
“It has been a good experience to host this event. Jacobsen is a renowned brand across the world, and we hope that the name Bukwit Pandawa will also become a well-known and highly regarded facility within the golf industry. We are very proud to be associated with Jacobsen and we look forward to developing our relationship further in the years to come.”
