Textron Specialty Products will be the official golf car supplier to PGA European Tour Course who specialise in the ownership and management of tournament course under the auspices of the European Tour. The exclusive three year agreement was signed at Stockley Park Golf Course.
“I am delighted that we have renewed this agreement for a further three years,” said Paul Kimberley, sales and marketing manager for PGA European Tour Course. “We have received excellent service from Textron over the last three years and that has been a major factor in renewing this contract. E-Z-GO golf cars will be supplied on a pan-European basis and will be used in Portugal, Spain and the UK and also at our new German resort at Fleesensee Hotels and Sports located between Berlin and Hamburg which opened on 28th April.”
