A family-owned golf course equipment manufacturer in Rugby has once again been asked to supply one of the world’s biggest golf tournaments.

Tacit, in Moat Farm Drive, will be supplying the Ryder Cup with flagsticks, pins, cups, greenkeeping equipment and other items.

The Ryder Cup will be held at Gleneagles, Scotland, from September 23 to 28.

Managing director of Tacit, Tim Webb, said: “It is a privilege to be able to supply the equipment for such a prestigious event.

“The company has grown from three to 30 people and trades all over the world.

“We are very proud of what we do here.”

The business was originally started by Richard Webb and his wife Margaret.

Richard was born in Rugby and later went on to play rugby for Australia.

The company is now run by his son, Tim, who played rugby for Wasps.
