John Deere renews partnership with LET
Posted on Tuesday, 23rd January 2018
Ladies European Tour chairman Mark Lichtenhein attended the opening day of BTME 2018 to announce John Deere would remain the Tour's official supplier of golf course maintenance equipment.
LET tournaments, including the Solheim Cup at Gleneagles in September 2019, will be supported by John Deere equipment through the company's European golf dealer network.
The announcement was made by Mark on the John Deere stand at BTME 2018 on Tuesday 23 January.
He said: "We are delighted that John Deere has decided to extend its relationship with the Ladies European Tour for the next two years, beyond the 2019 Solheim Cup at Gleneagles. This is a testament to our enduring partnership since 2006 and demonstrates the alignment of our brands and our joint objective to ensure a bright future for the women's game."
John Deere officials will also continue to work closely with the LET's agronomists, with the goal of helping to produce better quality playing surfaces across the continent.
Carlos Aragones, European turf sales and marketing manager for John Deere, said: "We are also delighted that what has already proved to be a fruitful relationship with the Ladies European Tour is continuing to grow. The strength of the John Deere brand is based on the quality of our products and customer service, and we are very proud to be associated with both the LET and the Solheim Cup.
