Club Car is helping drive business at golf courses large and small thanks to its renewed partnership with the UK Golf Course Owners Association (UKGCOA).

The manufacturer may be best known for its fleets at resort courses, but it is helping UKGCOA members of all sizes.

“Golf course owners are often surprised to find out just how much additional revenue they can make from even a small fleet of just five to 10 golf cars,” said Kevin Hart, Club Car Sales Director Golf for Europe, Middle East, India and Africa.

“At a time when clubs and courses are having to work really hard to add value to both their member and visitor experience, a small fleet of high quality vehicles can help differentiate a facility and bring in valuable additional revenue.

“Of course, it requires an investment on the part of the golf course, but it’s an investment that delivers a return and positions the course as a leader in quality and experience.”

Club Car is the world’s largest manufacturer of small-wheel, zero emissions electric vehicles, making its world-renowned Precedent golf cars and utility vehicles at its factory at Augusta, Georgia, USA.

Colin Mayes, Chairman of the UKGCOA, a growing organisation with nearly 200 members, said: “The UKGCOA is focused on driving the golf course industry forward through collaboration, and that includes working with partners that can make a difference to our members’ businesses.

“Our members include public pay-and-play courses, private members’ clubs and multi-venue groups and resorts. While these courses might be different sizes, they are all looking to provide a memorable customer experience and make their operations profitable.We are grateful to Club Car for their professional support of the UKGCOA and of our members’ businesses.”
