Club Car has expanded its UK golf distribution network in response to a dramatic increase in demand for the Company’s Car vehicles. Kevin Hart, Club Car business development manager, said, “Golf car users will benefit from a more regionalised network of Club Car distributors. The aim is to build up a network of up to 8 distributors with regional responsibility across the UK.

“As part of Club Car’s commitment to our new distributor network, it is a great pleasure to welcome Martin Lucas to the team. Martin brings with him 20 years experience of the ground care and golf industry.”

Club Car is to be the official supplier of golf cars to the European Tour in 2001/2. Hart explained, “The highlight of the year will be our involvement as the official supplier of golf cars to the Ryder Cup 2001 and sponsor of the European team. Club Car customers will be flying in from around the world to watch this magnificent tournament at the Belfry”.

Club Car has announced the launch of its new IQ 48 volt electric golf car. More golf club owners and operators grow to appreciate the benefits of using not just golf cars but electric golf cars in particular. The IQ car builds on the legendary strengths of the 48 volt ‘regen’ vehicle and reasserts Club Car’s position as industry leader. The new system combines established Club Car features with new technology to deliver the most advanced electric golf platform.

Kevin Hart stated, “The new IQ system can be tailored to ensure optimum performance of the IQ car for individual courses. The system will result in simplified fleet management and hassle free monitoring of the car which will translate into improved vehicle up time and lower running costs.

“The new IQ car promotes Club Car’s dominant position in the marketplace and extends Club Car’s reputation for innovation while building on the dependable features that have been our legacy.”
