John Deere will be the official supplier of golf course machinery for the 2015 Solheim Cup, at St Leon-Rot Golf Club in Germany. The event takes place from 18-20 September 2015.

“The Ladies European Tour is pleased to extend its relationship with John Deere, which has been an excellent partner during the past six years,” said Mark Casey, LET director of operations and director of the Solheim Cup. “Our experiences working with them during the 2011 Solheim in Ireland have driven us to want to partner with them again.”

“We know from experience that the enduring strength of the John Deere brand is based on the quality of its products and customer service, and therefore we are delighted to have John Deere as a strong partner on board,” added Eicko Schulz-Hanssen, general manager of St Leon-Rot.

Karsten Biber, Deere & Company’s sales and marketing manager for turf products in Europe, also said: “We are very pleased to add The 2015 Solheim Cup and The 2015 PING Junior Solheim Cup to what has already been a fruitful relationship with the Ladies European Tour – particularly because the 2015 event will take place at the St Leon-Rot Golf Club, which is close to Deere & Company’s European headquarters in Mannheim and the German sales branch.”
