With customer demand for golf buggies continuing to grow, many clubs and resorts are choosing to install buggy paths around some sections or all of the course. These paths provide golf clubs with a number of key benefits, including:
However just like any road or path over the years the weather and frost will take its toll, and potholes and other damage will begin to appear. This can be a real problem for clubs as repairs can often prove costly and areas of the course can be difficult to reach by large machinery. However, we were able to provide Glasgow based golf resort The Westerwood Golf Hotel & Spa with a simple and cost effective solution.
Our Bobcat compact loader and surface planer attachment were able to make short work of stripping the top layer of material from the damaged paths. The same material (now loose and broken up)was then easily raked neatly into position where it could be easily compacted using a Bomag 80 roller also provided by MTS. Once the work was completed the paths surface was smooth and compact, ready to be used once again by the fleet of Club Car buggies at the Westerwood. This method of repair proved highly cost effective, and was simple and time efficient to complete. Thanks to the compact size of the Bobcat loader accessing the required areas of the course was also not a problem, somthing which may have been an issue when using a larger surfacing machine.
