New mowing pattern for Green Approaches

The photo below is of a John Deere light weight fairway mower which is currently on demonstration at the golf club. The five eighteen inch wide cutting units are set at a height of cut of 12mm. The mower is being used on the Green surround and Approach to the Green. The mowing pattern of the Approach to the Green has been changed in both size and shape on holes 8, 9, 12 and 18 with the approach coming out some twenty five metres from the Green. If successful the mower will help to enhance the mowing presentation and aesthetics of the Approaches and also improve the quality of the sward through the use of the improved specification of the cutting units.
