Golf Course Equipment

  • Just follow the signs…

    For a golf course to run efficiently and smoothly, golf course signage is a must. Of course, everyone on a golf course is there to have a fun time and to relax but there are certain rules and regulations that must be adhered to. This ensures everyone has the best time possible on the golf course and that all health and safety issues are addresses. Things like repairing divots, where trolleys should be kept and rules pertaining to dogs are all vital pieces of information that needs to be given to golfers on the course and the best way to do that is through golf course signage.

    Every golf course needs golf course signage and here at FMW Distinct you’ll find all your golf course signage needs. Here on our website you can purchase all your golf course signage for the benefit of both staff and customers. Covering everything from rules to follow on the green to directional information, we have all the golf course signage you could ever need.

    All of our golf course signage is aesthetically pleasing and will only add to the style of your golf course. Take a look at some of the golf course signage we have here on out website and you’ll see exactly what you mean. Our golf course signage isn’t obtrusive or garish but presents the information needed in an understated but effective way.

    If you are looking to give your golf course signage an overhaul or are changing the look of your golf course completely you’ll find our golf course signage options just what you need.

  • The truth about divot boxes

    Golf is fun, relaxing and an entertaining way to spend an afternoon but proper respect for the golf course is just as important. Repairing divots you cause in the course as you go is one way to show appreciation and consideration for the course, the club and for your fellow golfers.

    Most golfers cause divots when they play. It’s a common occurrence and happens to both new golfers and seasoned players. You are after all swinging a very large club at a particularly small ball! It shouldn’t be anything to be ashamed of; however, golf etiquette dictates that you should always endeavour to fix the divot by using the divot boxes provided in order to keep the course in tip top condition. If you’re a little unsure of how to fix your divots and are a little wary of using the divot boxes provided then let us give you some helpful tips and advice on how to keep the gold course looking brand new.

    Most divot boxes on golf courses contain a mixture of sand and grass for you to use. Simply fill the divot hole with sand and replace the grass on top, ensuring it is level with the rest of the course. If you create a divot on the fairway, replace the clump of grass you hit and put it back into the hole. If you can’t find the lump then simply fill the hole with sand from one of the divot boxes. And that’s it!

    See, divot boxes aren’t that scary after all J

  • Taking care of the green | Divot Boxes

    Being part of a golf course is being part of a community where you all dig in and help out. This might take the form of complementing/giving advice with regards to a fellow golfer’s swing or putting technique and it could also be in the form of taking care of the golf course itself.

    Any divot holes made by golfers, and in fact any kind of damage to the green that occurs whilst a golfer is playing, be it with a club, shoe or the impact of the ball, should be repaired by the golfers to keep a healthy, even putting green for their fellow golfers.

    Most golf courses have a variety of divot boxes scattered around different parts of the green and encourage their golf club members to repair any divots on the green themselves, using the mixture provided in the divot boxes. Of course, the greenkeepers and grounds staff carries out this procedure on all of the tees across the course of the year but by members and visitors using the divot boxes provided, it improves the recovery time of the divot and longevity of the tee.

    Here at FMW Distinct, we have a range of divot boxes for you to choose from for your golf course. Here are two of the most popular divot boxes we currently sell on our golf course equipment site:

    Recycled Plastic Wood Effect Divot Box £83.95

    This UV Stabilised Dark Green recycled plastic divot box is stylish and comes supplied with a matching divot scoop.  The message on the divot box reads 'Please use the mixture in this box to repair your divot mark'

    divot boxes

    Practice Green Large Divot Box £99.00

    This larger divot box provides the perfect solutions for practice grounds, and higher usage areas.  It’s also an ideal fill up point for divot bags and holds 50 litres. It consists of a UV stabilised polyethylene construction with a hinged lid and wide mouth for ease of access and is both water tight and durable.

  • That old bugaboo lawn aeration | Golf Course Equipment

    When you talk about aerification or lawn aeration with golfers, they often see it as an inconvenience to their game. The little holes in the green seem to drive golfers mad and they seem to lay the blame on aerification when the game doesn’t go their way. (Although it’s likely that they should probably just practice their putting a bit more…) We jest!

    However, lawn aeration is nothing more than a short-term disruption but has many more long-term benefits for golf course users that need to be taken into consideration. Without those little holes that you see dotted about the golf course, the ones that cause you so much turmoil, the golf course greens would eventually die.

    To have a healthy and vibrant golf course green, you need to be taking preventative maintenance such as lawn aeration through the use of relevant golf course equipment, and unfortunately, this type of process is best done during the summer when most people want to be out playing golf! But needs must and lawn aeration is a vital process in producing healthy turf.

    golf course equipment

    Lawn aeration achieves three important objectives:

    • relieves soil compaction
    • provides a method to improve the soil mixture around the highest part of a green's roots
    • reduces or prevents the accumulation of excess thatch

    The condition of a golf course has a lot to do with what goes on below the surface and a healthy green needs deep, healthy roots which demand oxygen. In good soil, they get the oxygen from tiny pockets of air trapped between soil and sand particles.

    The soil can become compact over time, due to heavy foot traffic from avid golfers and also golf course equipment such as mowers, which means the air pockets become crushed. This means the all-important roots don’t get their all-important oxygen and they weaken, wither and die. Lawn aeration is the mechanical process of creating air space in the soil that promotes a healthy rooting system for natural turf!

    Here at FMW Distinct, we have the right lawn aeration golf course equipment to keep your green looking healthy and vibrant.

  • Specialist Turfcare Tools

    One of the most flawless things in the universe, apart from Beyoncé obviously, is a well-maintained golf course. A properly taken care of golf green should and does look impeccable. It’s truly a wonderment to behold but it takes so much time and effort to get it looking spick and span. But taking care of a golf course green isn’t just about how it looks. When a golf course is perfectly maintained and looks the part, it plays the part too. When you’re playing golf it’s extremely important to have a well-groomed course.

    The sport of golf is all about technique, minute movements and the roll of the ball, so a poorly maintained green, that is uneven, patchy and either too dry or water logged can ruin the game. Investing in quality golf course equipment, particularly specialist turfcare tools, is the only way to ensure that your golf course green will be pitch perfect!

    Here at FMW Distinct, we have a range of specialist turfcare tools and golf course equipment for you to create a flawless green that Queen Bey herself would be proud of. Take a look below at some of the products we have on offer:

  • Using golf course equipment with safety in mind

    When buying and using golf course equipment, it’s important to ensure you follow all necessary health and safety procedures as some kinds of golf course equipment can be hazardous if not used properly.

    golf course equipment

    With that being said golf courses are relatively safe places to work and not a lot of accidents occur in relation to other industries or fields but still, care should be taken. When using all kinds of golf course equipment you should keep in mind the following:

    • Safety starts before you start the engine or pick up a piece of equipment – ensure you’re prepared beforehand.
    • Make sure you have been given all information you need to complete a job and are comfortable with it.
    • Never operate or use a piece of golf course equipment you have not been trained on.
    • Always check your golf course equipment before you start the engine or begin use.
    • Use proper personal protective equipment (PPE) such as safety glasses, hearing protection, and sturdy work shoes or boots.
    • Check warning labels for specific hazards.
    • Before putting the golf course equipment away look for any damage and make sure it’s reported.

    By keeping these points in mind there’s no reason why any mishaps should occur with golf course equipment on the green or anywhere else on the golf course – and the chances of an accident occurring are significantly reduced.

  • Taking your game home | Golf Course Equipment

    If you can’t put in the dedicated hours or practice, you’ll never be the next Rory McIlroy or Tiger Woods, but we appreciate for a lot of people, it can be extremely difficult to get to the golf course as much as you’d like. Family, work and other commitments constrain you and obviously in the grand scheme of things, practicing your golf swing at the course gets pushed down your list of priorities. If your schedule is jam-packed, a lot of the time, you don’t want to be driving to the golf course in your down time. But what if there was a way that you could practice at home? Well, with our range of home golf course equipment you can!

    golf course equipment golf course equipment

    Our home golf course equipment allows you to perfect your game from the comfort of your own home. No more dashing from a late meeting, to the golf course and then desperately trying to make it home in time for dinner. “Honey,” you can say, “dinner was delicious and now I’m going to go into the garden and practice teeing off.”

    Having your own home golf course equipment gives you the chance to practice every aspect of your game in an environment you feel safe and comfortable in – and you can spend more time at home with your family in the process!
