Walton Heath invests £1 million
in Toro fleet deal
Club signs first five-year agreement with Toro and Reesink
Walton Heath Golf Club has signed its first five-year package deal with Toro after seeing the benefits a Toro fleet would bring to the course and its members.
With its Old Course having ranked in world top 100 lists every year since the inception of the rankings in 1938, Walton Heath Golf Club knows a little something about consistently providing excellence. This is part of the reason they opted for a Toro fleet deal.
Club chairman Dr Alastair Wells says: “Having a fully modern fleet means we can maintain the courses to a very high standard. For example, the uniformity of cut and reliability are always going to be better with new Toro machines, plus there are financial benefits.”
With a package deal we can retain cash as the cost is spread out over five years, which was one reason why we made the switch from buying machines on an annual basis.

“We had machinery demonstrations from a number of leading brands, however it became clear that Toro was the way to go,” continues Dr Wells. “Toro and Reesink Turfcare are such reputable companies for one but added to that is the fact that Toro equipment is first class.”
The comprehensive fleet deal includes four Toro Greensmaster TriFlex Hybrid 3420s, two Groundsmaster 4700-Ds, four Reelmaster 6700-Ds and a further two Multi Pro 5800-Ds, three Workman HDXs and one Workman MDX.
With the new deal spearheaded by course manager Michael Mann, this significant investment in Toro is only one part of the club’s efforts to improve and develop the course.
“The two courses here at Walton Heath are highly regarded across the country, in part due to the great tournament history they have, but also because of our continuous efforts to make improvements,” continues Dr Wells.
This new agreement with Toro and Reesink is just the start of further development in the club, which we believe will see improved results.
We are delighted to have cemented our long-term relationship with Walton Heath Golf Club following the club’s due diligence process. Our local representative, Mike Taylor, supported by the Reesink South East team engaged in a busy evaluation process with course manager Michael Mann and his team. After the hard work put into the selection process, we are immensely pleased to have the club reconfirm their confidence in us and the Toro brand.
