The Royal St. George's golf course in Kent, England - which recently hosted the British Open - keeps meticulously maintained greens and fairways, even when the site is not hosting any major tournaments, according to the Shropshire Star.

Graham Royden, the head greenskeeper at the course noted that gardeners can keep their grass looking as good as his.

"The big difference between the course here at Royal St George’s and garden lawns is that we use a different type of grass seed and spend literally hundreds of hours tending the turf," Royden told the news source."But, that said, a few simple tips can help any gardener achieve near perfect results."

These products are available to all lawncare and golf enthusiasts, as the new models of John Deere tractors can range in size and power. The agricultural giant offers vehicles that come with 24 horsepower or a more powerful version with 543 horsepower, according to the company website.
