5 reasons why golf is in recovery
3. A golf course construction company is investing £150 million in its Staffordshire facilities
It’s common that golf course machinery companies either build small golf courses (Ransomes Jacobsen has an award-winning three-hole course in Ipswich) or have links with major venues, but JCB has so much confidence in the market that it has announced that its machines will build the company’s own £30 million, 18-hole golf course.
The venue will predominantly be to boost business relationships between JCB staff and their customers, but the company believes the course will be of such a high standard that it could attract professional events.
