MEDIA RELEASE FROM SMITH POWER EQUIPMENT
Smith Turf Equipment for Steyn City
Golf Data has taken delivery of a range of equipment from Smith Power Equipment (SPE) for the soon to be opened Steyn City Golf Course. Steyn City, on the urban edge of Sandton, Gauteng, is the result of well-known South African businessman Douw Steyn’s vision to ‘build a city like no other on the African continent – a lifestyle estate founded on the principle of community and quality of life.
Steyn City’s golf course, which is now complete but not officially
open, matches the vision. “It has magnificent views and numerous water features including dams and creeks. But, most importantly, it is a user-friendly course with wide fairways and a network of walkways, which will encourage everyone to play or to just walk and enjoy the spectacular environment,” says Golf Data’s Fanie Bester.
He adds that the entire development exudes excellence and building and maintaining the golf course demands the same level of service and expertise. “For this reason we had no hesitation in getting our new equipment from SPE which not only has outstanding products, like Toro, Club Car and Kubota, but has proven over many years that they back these products up with an equally excellent level of service and support,” Bester says.
To date Golf Data has taken delivery of: TORO – 4 X flex 21s, 1 sidewinder 3500, 1 X utility spray rig Workman 3300, 3 X zero turn rotary mowers; KUBOTA -1 X STV 32 Tractor; CLUB CAR: 7 X 500 series carry-alls.
SPE director Lionel Coetzee who has worked with Golf Data for decades says that his company never takes for granted this excellent relationship. “We deeply appreciate the business we have got from Golf Data over the years and will continue to give them the best possible service that we can. We look forward the Steyn City opening and to working closely with them in the future,” Coetzee concluded.
