Jacobsen Provides PGA TOUR Stops with One-of-a-Kind Support

Jacobsen, a Textron Company is introducing its biggest piece of equipment yet. The Jacobsen Turf Support Vehicle is a specially designed truck with a 32-foot trailer that will travel to nearly 20 PGA TOUR events providing equipment and on-site event support.

The vehicle will provide a central gathering place where superintendents and course volunteers will have access to the resources that will make their job easier including on-site equipment maintenance, new product demonstrations, equipment training, and consultations from Jacobsenís agronomist, Dr. Milt Engelke.

Vollie Carr, a 23-year veteran of Jacobsenís PGA TOUR support, will be traveling with the trailer and, alongside local Jacobsen dealers at each TOUR stop, will provide support before, during and after each event. Stops include the Ford Championship at Doral Golf Resort in Florida, the Heritage at Harbor Town in Hilton Head, S.C., and the International in Castle Pines, Colo.

And itís not just business; the Turf Support Vehicle will be a place for superintendents and course volunteers to relax, watch TV, grab a bite to eat and network with their colleagues in the industry.

When the vehicle is not traveling the PGA TOUR circuit, it will be used for field days, local shows and as an educational showpiece.
