John Deere Golf Announces Two New Distributors

Continuing its commitment to the golf industry, John Deere today announced two new distributors will be joining its distributor network – Potestio Brothers Equipment Inc., in Colorado and Belkorp Ag, LLC in California. Both will provide superintendents, club managers and technicians an enhanced level of service, support and value.

“Our customers in Colorado and California will be impressed with their new dealers,” said Steve Vincent, North American sales manager, John Deere. “With more than 100 years of combined service to John Deere customers, these teams are perfectly positioned to help superintendents with their equipment needs. The addition of these exceptional dealers continues to strengthen our ability to support the best courses on Earth. Both are able to provide outstanding after-the-sale service.”

Potestio Brothers, already a John Deere Gold Star Dealer thanks to excellence in service, will support Colorado golf courses. The distributor has made significant investments in an expert parts staff, as well as six mobile service vehicles and is a strong partner with John Deere Landscapes. Potestio’s family-run business is committed to relationships with the Rocky Mountain Golf Course Superintendents’ and Regional Turfgrass Associations.

Belkorp Ag, LLC will now serve the California region with its acquisition of former John Deere dealer Mid-Cal Tractor. With eight locations throughout the Central Valley and the North Coast regions, Belkorp offers exceptional parts support and mobile service.  Mid-Cal’s golf staff will now be a part of the Belkorp team, allowing John Deere to continue the trusted relationships that have been formed over the years. Additionally, as an owner of Big Sky Golf Course in British Columbia – a top golf course in Canada – Belkorp understands the needs of golf course managers, superintendents and owners.
