Bernhard and Company – manufacturer of Bernhard Grinders, the world’s finest blade sharpening systems for turf mowing machines – was pleased to support the team at le Golf National for the second edition of the Paris Legends Championship from 28th to 30th September 2017.

 The Golf National used Bernhard’s Express Dual 5000 and Anglemaster 3000DX precision grinders to ensure greens remained in pristine condition throughout the tournament.

 Ranked among the Top 5 European golf courses by pundits across the globe, le Golf National is the permanent home of the French Open for which Bernhard and their partner Macdis provided tournament support too.

 The tournament support provided for the Paris Legends championship in September this year involved 3 days of preparing, sharpening, and conditioning 52 cutting units to get the golf to its pristine condition ready for the first day of practise, presenting a perfect opportunity to rehearse for next year’s biggest event Le Golf National has known: the 2018 Ryder Cup.

“The Golf National is a prestigious venue in Europe we are very happy to support. We are looking forward to working with Alejandro and his team to help them prepare for the most famous competition of the year.” says Steve Nixon, Global Sales Director for Bernhard. “We’re honoured to play a key role in ensuring turf conditions are close to perfect for what will be a key year for Le Golf National’s fantastic course.”

“Bernhard Grinders have been a mainstay in our maintenance facility for years,” adds Alejandro Reyes Superintendant, le Golf National. “Our team depends on their unmatched precision, ease of use, reliability to make our course shine not just for the world’s best professionals, but for play by members and guests on a daily basis.”

TPC Sawgrass (THE PLAYERS Championship; Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.), Wentworth Club (BMW PGA Championship; Surrey, England) and the London Golf are other facilities benefitting from Bernhard’s trademark Express Dual and Anglemaster machines.

The Express Dual reel grinder sharpens without requiring disassembly of the mower. Its touch screen for EDS, speed loading system and automatic traverse, guarantees rapid turnaround and improved work shop safety. The unique Bernhard sharpening system eliminates the need for backlapping, producing a more accurate finish and reduced maintenance costs.
