Turf Maintenance LIVE! a unique turf care event with an emphasis on working demonstrations and up close inspection of the new season’s products returns for 2017.
The collaborative event by eight of the industry’s leading innovators will be held on Wednesday, April 26 and Thursday, April 27.
Location is The Worcestershire Golf Club at Malvern Wells and those involved are GKB Machines, Husqvarna, Iseki, Jacobsen, Martin Lishman, Rigby Taylor, Wessex International and Wiedenmann UK.
The event, featuring working machines and equipment that are not static as in exhibition halls, targets groundsmen, greenkeepers, contractors, local authority personnel, estate managers and schools as well as amateur and professional clubs.
A TML organiser said: “The Worcestershire Golf Club is a superb venue as it’s within striking distance of the M5/M50 intersection and Three Counties Show Ground it’s pretty accessible. We’ve had good indications of people travelling not just locally but from Shropshire, Herefordshire, Warwickshire, Staffordshire, Gloucestershire, Bristol, South Wales and Oxfordshire so there should be a quite a buzz.
"We’ll be showcasing some of the latest technology with a serious amount of diverse kit on view, so there’s plenty of incentive to make a day of it.
“We’re indebted to two associate sponsors – The IOG and BIGGA - both of whom will be awarding CPD points to attendees.
"Starting time on both days is 10.00 with free registration and bacon rolls. Lunch is provided at no charge and those who can’t make the morning can come along grab lunch and do the afternoon session."
