Toro fully understands that any mechanical product will need maintenance and repair on a regular basis, and occasionally an unforeseen problem may need additional time or resources to rectify. How to deal with those moments of additional stress and the need for extraordinary efforts is the measure of how well the support systems perform.
Most Toro replacement parts can be delivered within a short period of time. Should a repair of greater magnitude be needed, replacement machines are provided expeditiously. Assuring the staff has the equipment they need to maintain the golf courses when they need it is Toro’s top priority.

This ensures that the St Andrews Links team can react immediately to the challenge with the tools and service they need, should Mother Nature or other unforeseen circumstances affect maintenance needs.

It’s the understanding and close partnership of the St Andrews Link Trust staff and The Toro Company that ensures that the best is always provided, and that in all situations and under all challenges, the legend is maintained to the highest standard of excellence.
