Fairway is one of the parts of a golf course. The ball should land within this area. Back in the old days, there were not clear cut fairways. Modern fairways have two parts including the landing zone and the fringe linking the green and the fairway. The surroundings dictate the size and shape of the fairway. However, it should be designed strategically with the game and maintenance in mind.

You can contact a used turf equipment supplier to learn about mowers for other areas. This article covers the features of 7700A PrecisionCut™ Fairway Mower.
