Turf Care Products Canada and the Toro Company have initiated a 10-year partnership with the Pulpit Club in Caledon, Ont., in which the club will exclusively use Toro equipment and irrigation systems at both of its 18-hole courses.

The Pulpit Club will also serve as a Toro equipment and irrigation training centre. The partnership among a manufacturer, turf equipment and irrigation distributor, and golf club is a first in Canada.

“This partnership is the next step in our 30-year relationship,” Tim Trimper, Turf Care’s president, said. “We’re thrilled about the opportunity to work with The Pulpit Club as a best-practice Toro equipment and irrigation training centre for industry professionals across the province.”

Turf Care has had a long-standing relationship with The Pulpit Club as the exclusive distributor of Toro equipment and irrigation systems in Ontario and Quebec.

Set amongst the rolling hills of Caledon, the Pulpit Club (formerly Devil’s Pulpit Golf Association), has generated incredible accolades during its history. Established in 1990, the club is the only private facility in Canada with two courses rated in the Top 25 in the country. The Pulpit and Paintbrush were created by Dr. Michael Hurdzan and Dana Fry.

Rebranded The Pulpit Club in 2021 with a new, ambitious leadership group at the helm, the club is committed to enhancing its world-renowned golf courses, with a vision of becoming the ultimate four-season destination for those seeking time well-spent outdoors.

“Toro’s world-class equipment and irrigation systems will help us deliver on that commitment,” Rob Roxborough, general manager at The Pulpit Club, said.

Rob Wright, superintendent at The Pulpit Club since 2015, is excited about the partnership.

“Our relationship with Turf Care as our distributor has been a very positive one, and I have no doubt that it will continue to grow as we embark on this exciting journey together.”

Credited with keeping the award-winning courses in top shape, Wright and his team have “the utmost confidence in Toro’s quality turf and irrigation equipment, along with Turf Care’s amazing service and support.”

“Partnering with The Pulpit Club, two of Canada’s premier courses, has been an aspiration of ours for years, and we are so grateful to be a part of their vision for the future,” Bob Golden, golf sales manager, The Toro Company, said.

Golden worked closely with Brian Dawson, district sales manager at Toro, to craft the partnership.

“We are excited to prove our equipment and irrigation technologies on two of the most spectacular and distinguished golf backdrops in Canada,” he said.
