London, England: The Toro Company has further strengthened its relationship with The PGA of Great Britain & Ireland after agreeing to become a PGA Partner in a milestone year for the American company.

Toro first entered the golf equipment business 100 years ago with a mower designed to maintain the fairways at Minikahda Club in Minnesota. Today, the US-based company has cemented itself as one of the world’s leading brands of turf and landscape maintenance equipment.

An Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation, Toro now has professional distributors, dealers and retailers in more than 125 countries, and offers a wide range of products for the golf course market.

The company’s products are currently being used around the world at notable facilities such as Carnoustie Golf Links, St Andrews Links, Torrey Pines Golf Course and Pinehurst Resort.

As part of the agreement, Toro will look to establish relationships with other PGA Partners and PGA Branded Properties to provide solutions that help golf courses maintain healthy turf and outstanding conditions for players.

The partnership will also allow Toro to support The PGA National Training Academy with its educational objectives, providing educational material from key industry experts at the continuing professional development (CPD) and degree level.

“Becoming a PGA Partner is the perfect way to celebrate our landmark 100 years in the golf industry. The PGA is at the heart of golf, and we share the same values of integrity and commitment. As a PGA Partner, we are proud to support The PGA in all of its work to advance the game and the success of the industry overall,”said Andy Brown, Senior Sales Manager at The Toro Company.

“Toro has been a valued PGA Official Supplier for more than three years, so The PGA is delighted to welcome them on board as a PGA Partner as they celebrate 100 years serving the golf industry,” said Robert Maxfield, Chief Executive of The PGA, also an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

“Many PGA Members work closely with greenkeeping staff on a day-to-day basis and through Toro they have a unique opportunity to expand their knowledge base. We look forward to continuing our relationship with one of the most trusted brands in turf landscape and maintenance. We recognise Toro as the leader in their field and the company offers a great service to PGA Members.”
