Lynne Stephens, Loch Haven Golf Center | Rockingham, NC

"We ordered a bearing spacer kit for rebuilding a spindle on Tuesday and we needed it ASAP. FedEx dropped the ball, not delivering it until Friday. On Friday afternoon, we realized the oil seals were not part of the kit. We called your parts department late Friday. Andy said he'd see what he could do to get it in transit. It was delivered Saturday. We need every piece of equipment working, this time of year and we want to say, "THANKS". This is a great way to do business."  

John Sharp, Sr., Quality Landscape | Rock Hill, SC

"I know how valuable a pro at the counter can be. I have requested quotes, deliveries, and help from Frank Wood and he has responded quickly, accurately, and always seems to be the right person for Quality Landscape to contact whenever the need occurs. Frank is an exceptional person in a very demanding position and I for one appreciate having him at the Charlotte Counter." 

H. Dean Baker, CGCS, Kinston Country Club | Kinston, NC

"2010 was one of those years - drought, heat and tighter budgets!!  This was also the year I got my first Toro equipment package from Smith Turf & Irrigation.  Man, what a great year!  All year long my members would tell me how great the golf course looked.  I said, "thank you," but I knew it was the result of my Toro equipment taking Kinston Country Club to the next level!"

Chris DeVane, Forsythe Country Club | Winston-Salem, NC

"When I think of Smith Turf & Irrigation, I think of quality.  Quality products, quality service and quality people."

Brian Powell, CGCS, Old Chatham Golf Club | Durham, NC

"It's critical that we use as little water as possible.  Toro allows us to micro-manage our playing surface each time we irrigate, and we're reaching the turf quality we seek for our playability goals."

Nick Lentz, Raleigh Golf Association | Raleigh, NC

"The Toro Workman Mid-Duty's reliability, fuel efficiency and comfortable ride allows us to be the most productive we can be throughout the day.  Our Toro ProCore 648's superior design means we don't drive over and crush the cores, which saves cleanup time.  It is so much faster than any other aerator on the market that it allows me to reopen more quickly and make my members happy.  Thanks Toro, for an awesome machine!"

Kevin McIntire, Lexington Country Club | Lexington, VA

"I recently switched to RED because I believe STI and Toro provide me with the best equipment and support for my maintenance operation.  Offering great products like the Toro ProCore 648 and the Toro Groundsmaster 4500 helped make my decision an easy one."

Chris Parham, Greenville Country Club | Greenville, NC

"The Toro Groundsmaster 4500-D with 9' width of cut and self-contouring decks produces unparalleled productivity and appearance in my roughs.  Our Toro Reelmaster 5210 reduced the clippings and our need for blowing, and the DPA reels are easy to set up and adjust which also saves us valuable time and labor.  These products are exactly what we need to get the job done better and faster."
