Club Car has been named as the Preferred Supplier of Golf Cars and Golf Utility Vehicles to The 2008 Ryder Cup and The European Team at Valhalla Golf Club, Louisville, Kentucky, USA, from 19-21 September.

It is the sixth consecutive Ryder Cup that Club Car has been involved with and this year will see the biggest fleet of cars to date, with 300 vehicles in operation helping to get the captains, players, team officials, the media and spectators into the thick of the action.

Primarily this fleet will consist of two and four-passenger Precedents and two and six-passenger Carryalls. Nearly half of these will be used for TV crews and the remainder will cover everything from rules officials, chief marshals and scoreboard officials to services such as shuttle buses, catering and even ambulances. Of course, Club Car will also provide the now famous branded captains and team cars.

Nick Faldo, European Ryder Cup Captain, said, “The new car looks great and I’m sure it will be put to good use as everyone knows the importance for me being in the thick of the action when key matches come to a close.”
