To further its commitment to the Pinehurst Resort in the Sandhills of North Carolina, John Deere announced that it has finalized a long-term agreement with the establishment. As a result, Deere is now its Preferred Equipment Manufacturer.
Revels Turf & Tractor, a distributor of John Deere golf and turf equipment, will also provide services and machine support for the products used to maintain the Pinehurst Resort courses. This includes Course No. 2 and Cradle Short Course.
"We are honored to enter this long-term agreement with Pinehurst Resort, one of the most iconic golf destinations in the world," said Manny Gan, director of global golf at John Deere. "John Deere is committed to leading the industry in technology and precision turf solutions. Since entering the golf industry in 1987, our commitment to golf has resulted in our equipment being used by the best golf courses in the world, which now includes Pinehurst Resort."
Pinehurst Resort has hosted more single golf championships than any other location in North America. John Deere and Revels & Turf and Tractor will now help support these events, including the 2024 and 2029 U.S. Open Championships and the 2022 John Deere World Championship.
"This agreement will unite the rich legacies of Pinehurst Resort and John Deere," said Bob Farren, CGCS, director of golf course and grounds management at Pinehurst Resort. "Pinehurst is well known as a premier golf destination, with a reputation of delivering championship conditioning levels for not only major championships but for its members and guests as well. Our agronomy team looks forward to working alongside John Deere and Revels Turf & Tractor to leverage the top equipment and turf solutions to deliver a best-in-class golf experience to every guest at Pinehurst Resort for years to come."
