Cutting-edge donation


Admiring the John Deere greens mower the Gore Golf Club recently bought are (from left) Drummond and Etheridge golf and turf sales representative Adam Sweetman, of Christchurch, Gore Golf Club president Drewe Carran, Mataura Licensing Trust board member Bryan (Bunny) Burgess and greenkeeper Dave Kowalewski.

The Mataura Licensing Trust recommended The Trust Community Foundation approve a $70,000 grant to pay for the mower.

Mr Carran said the club’s greens were very good but the new mower was going to make them even better.

“It’s the ability to cut grass at 4mm. The smoother the better, the faster the greens are.”
