Solheim Cup Signs Up With Club Car

7.30am 10th May 2007 - Corporate

Organisers of The 2007 Solheim Cup have entered into a new agreement with Club Car, which will remain the official supplier of golf cars and golf utility vehicles to the 2007 Solheim Cup at Halmstad Golfklubb, Halmstad, Sweden, from 14-16 September.

“Club Car performed a valuable service at The 2003 Solheim Cup when it was last held in Europe. Everyone has fantastic memories of the Club Car team transforming the captain’s golf car overnight so that the injured European captain was still able to get around the course and guide the European Team to victory,” said Steen Scherff, area manager for Club Car in central and northern Europe. “We look forward to working with The Solheim Cup once again this year. Supporting the game of golf is key to us at Club Car.”

John A. Solheim, chairman and CEO of PING, added, “I‘m very pleased to see Club Car involved in The Solheim Cup once again. I have always enjoyed the work Club Car has done. When I‘ve tested golf carts there has been no question that Club Car is the performance leader. It’s good to see someone who has a great product and keeps improving it.”

With just over four months until The Solheim Cup takes place at Halmstad, time is running out for spectators to purchase tickets. The organisers are encouraging the public to ensure they purchase tickets well in advance to support Helen Alfredsson and her team and to avoid any disappointment. To book tickets on-line go to or call +46 (0) 771 4444 10.
