Singapore: Jebsen & Jessen Technology – Turf & Irrigation (JJ T&I), a division of the technology business unit of diversified industrial conglomerate Jebsen & Jessen Group, has clinched a 10-year agreement with Thailand’s newly unveiled Stonehill.

Building on an existing package of equipment and irrigation solutions sealed in 2018 to support all areas of course maintenance, this new agreement advances their partnership to achieve a higher level of synergy over the next decade.

Located north of central Bangkok in Pathum Thani, Stonehill, which celebrated its opening in July, is a private golf club designed by Kyle Phillips.

A 7,815-yard par-72 course covering 340 acres, Stonehill is set to become one of the most prestigious clubs in the region and an international-level sporting landmark.

In October, Stonehill hosted the Bangkok leg of the inaugural LIV Golf Invitational. JJ T&I provided a full suite of support services, including Toro equipment, equipment health checks, on-site technical assistance and volunteers during the tournament.

With the 10-year agreement, both JJ T&I and Stonehill will collaborate more closely over an extended period of time to ensure a well-maintained golfing venue.

Stonehill will be able to access support from JJ T&I’s team of technical service experts; the newest products and technology (such as electric/lithium projects or new software) as they become available; and support for myTurf Pro – Toro’s proprietary fleet management software.

Stonehill’s staff members will also get the opportunity to partake in formal training and learning trips to selected clubs during tournaments to gain skills and expertise.

“We are proud to further build our relationship with Stonehill to meet their turf and maintenance needs,” said Philipp Hoffmann, Regional Director, JJ T&I, a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

“Since 2018, JJ T&I has provided Stonehill with our industry-leading experience and comprehensive range of high-quality Toro equipment, and we are well placed to be part of their growth journey for the next decade as they establish themselves as a world-class golfing destination.”

Darren Moore, Stonehill’s Director of Agronomy, said: “Every step of the way – from design to construction – we have selected the most high-quality options and ensured adherence to internationally accepted standards.

“We have found a trusted partner in JJ T&I and we look forward to further leveraging JJ T&I’s range of innovative equipment and irrigation solutions, and trusted technical expertise, to maintain the greens and guarantee the best golf experience for Stonehill’s esteemed guests.

“Course maintenance is a never-ending battle that has many routines and we expect the highest standards of turf maintenance machines and supplier. It gives me great peace of mind knowing we can expect that level of excellence from Jebsen & Jessen and Toro for the next decade to come.”
