Carr Golf to manage course maintenance operations at Mallow Golf Club

The club becomes the 24th golf facility to join Carr Golf’s maintenance portfolio.

Dublin, Ireland, June 2024 — Carr Golf today announced that it is now managing golf
course maintenance operations at Mallow Golf Club in County Cork.

This multi-year partnership will focus on the comprehensive modernisation of the club’s
maintenance practices and central fleet to deliver tournament-ready conditions year-
round and bolster its stature as one of Munster’s premier parkland courses.

Furthermore, Carr Golf’s certified professional advisors will help Mallow’s greenskeepers
meet the ever-growing number of environmental regulations and directives.

Located in the Blackwater Valley, Mallow Golf Club is known for its challenging but
enjoyable championship layout on a rolling landscape bordered by native trees and
mountainous scenery.

Carr Golf has developed bespoke, data-driven maintenance and agronomic plans to elevate the
playability and presentation of the par-72 course – while maintaining long-term sustainability.
Improvements are tracked and measured against key performance indicators set against
industry benchmarks.

Also, as the largest independent purchaser of maintenance machinery and materials in Ireland
and the UK, the company is tasked with identifying and acquiring cutting-edge equipment
essential for modern course care.

Paul Farrell, Interim Chairman and Trustee at Mallow Golf Club, said: “The Trustees, together with Interim Course Chairman, Denis O’Donovan are pleased to work alongside our staff and new partners Carr Golf to improve our course presentation and conditions. We are enhancing our reputation as a hidden gem and stellar test of parkland golf in Munster, through embracing new working practices and upgrading of our machinery fleet and facilities. This is an exciting opportunity to take Mallow Golf Club to the next level.”
