Master The Perfect Putting Surface With Second Hand Lawn Tractors

As the Sun set over Augusta on Sunday, Adam Scott sunk a 15 foot birdie putt to achieve a feat no other Aussie had ever managed before. He became the first Australian master of golf, beating the veteran Angel Cabrera after a sudden death playoff lasting two holes.

The 2013 Masters had gone to a second playoff in a row for the first time since the Nick Faldo’s consecutive Masters wins. It gave us the chance to see the vast expanse of greenery of this historic course in a different light. Augusta National is one of the most natural courses on the golfing calendar, loaded with magnolias, junipers and azaleas, it is the envy of course designers and green keepers around the world.

Every single Masters week inspires amateur golfers to drag out their clubs and head straight up to the local golf club; often after a winter of hibernation. Believing somehow that the Bubba Watson shot around the trees is possible, or that we can serenely drop an iron shot within a few feet whilst under pressure on the final hole. The seemingly impossible brilliance of these golfers is the greatest of inspirations, yet there is more inspiration lingering on this classic course.

The one thing that we learn when watching the best golfers in the world strolling down Magnolia Lane is that a golf course is a living thing and needs constant maintenance. Lined with trees, shrubbery and the all important grass from tee to green that we all rely on. Obviously, like that almost impossible shot that won the Masters for Bubba Watson in 2012, we can never exactly replicate the perfection of what we see at Augusta National.

Gain The Immaculate Green With Second Hand Tractors & Mowers

 What we can find is our own piece of tranquility, wherever the golf course may be - John Deere tractors from Balmers can help you find it. With second hand tractors available you can get the perfect tee to green, without the usual expense. Riding Lawn Mowers offer you the balance between a great cut and reduced fuel consumption and noise. Those immaculate greens can be available to any course, with tyre tracks greatly reduced through alternating direction of travel daily. The adjustable seats and steering mean that the perfect greens can be achieved in comfort.

The second hand tractors on offer at Balmers give you more than the perfect putting surface, with our fairway mowers the answer to any difficult to maintain course. You won’t have to find yourself cursing the imagination of a course architect, as this Precision Cut Fairway Mower, with all-wheel drive and a double-acting steering cylinder, cruises over slopes and around dog legs to leave you with that perfectly striped fairway.

These easy to maintain second hand tractors can offer you peace of mind, as well as peace and quiet out on the course. Diagnostics are always at your fingertips and all maintenance checks are located in the same place, eliminating the time spent searching for issues on complicated tractors. All of these features are here to help you be the master of your own course, even if we can only dream pulling on that green jacket.
