Lancashire’s Bentham Golf Club has chosen a Wiedenmann Terra Spike GXi8 HD to help its team make the most of weather windows.
The course has seen additional member traffic, prompting the purchase of a deep aerator. For head greenkeeper, Shaun Conway it marks another positive step for the northern club.
“Immediately after installation we got all tees spiked with 20 mm tines to 10 cm with 5 degrees of heave,” he said.
“Next day, one of the lads started tackling the fairways to 15 cm. You don’t need extra spanners; it’s a tool free and runs quietly and quickly. The speed is just great, it buys peace of mind that the job will get done.
“After the initial phase, the aeration programme going forward is to be out little and often. The speed and easy operation mean every three to four weeks.
“Even across the summer, we can get some discreet work done without golfers knowing.”
Bentham Golf Club is supplied by local dealer Balmer’s Garden Machinery, at Burnley.
