Golf in the Texas Hill Country: John Deere Golf
What is golf like in the heart of Texas Hill Country? There’s a 200-acre chunk of property out in the middle of the Hill Country, with a golf course as the centerpiece. The golf course, Boot Ranch, sits on about 300 acres, of which 100 acres are maintained turf area.
As you can imagine, maintaining this course would be extremely difficult without the proper equipment and resources. Designed by Hal Sutton, Boot Ranch is a spectacular layout, with various species of wildlife inhabiting this Audubon certified course. Between the record droughts and water shortage, the golf course implemented a 6-mile pipeline all the way back to town to start using that water.
About three years ago, Boot Ranch started using John Deere golf course turf equipment, which has since made their jobs a lot easier. Watch this video to learn more about how their maintenance team is leveraging turf equipment as part of their successful operations!
