Formby Golf Club is now the proud owner of a new Gambetti Pro 300 tractor-mounted sprayer after winning Rigby Taylor’s 2017 Autumn Fungicide Promotion.
In addition, and as part of the promotion, the Liverpool club’s course manager Paul Swift has won an expenses-paid trip to the GCSAA convention and trade show in San Antonio, Texas.
The formal presentation of the sprayer was made at the recent BTME exhibition where Formby Golf Club secretary/manager, Stuart Leech, along with Paul Swift and members of the club’s greens committee, were congratulated by BIGGA chief executive Jim Croxton.
Also attending the presentation was Rigby Taylor representative David Weir, who recommended the fungicide programme (based on Bayer’s new Exteris Stressguard fungicide) to the club. David will also be travelling with Paul to the USA.
There were five runners up in the competition – Moor Hall GC, Hindhead GC, Ralston GC, Enfield GC and Leicester City FC – and each club will receive an Evolution knapsack sprayer and their course/grounds managers a Bayer Helly Hansen waterproof jacket.
