Adare Manor, located near Limerick, recognised as “Golf Resort of the Year” at the Ireland Golf Tour Operator Association (IGTOA) Awards 2018, has taken delivery of a new fleet of golf and utility vehicles, citing the Club Car brand as that most befitting the resort’s luxury status.
Club Car, an Official Supplier of the European Tour and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, supplied a new fleet featuring 25 Precedent golf cars to service the redesigned golf course at Adare Manor, which recently joined fellow Club Car customers Royal County Down and Royal Portrush among Ireland’s top five courses.
Andy McMahon, Director of Golf Operations at Adare Manor, said: “We are a five-star venue and our key focus is to deliver the highest possible service. We chose Club Car because its quality, reliability and after-sales service make it the superior brand.
“The aesthetic is paramount at Adare Manor, and with the upgraded seats and alloys, the integrated cool box, raincover and black roof, we have received a sleek and high-spec product that is well suited to our world class resort.”
The 25 golf cars feature Club Car’s market-leading connectivity solution, Visage. This ‘connected’ GPS system formed an important part of the decision for Adare Manor, due to its unique features that can support maintenance of the resort’s pristine new golf course, while also offering guests the greatest range of in-car services on the market.
Visage not only enables staff to remotely control the golf car fleet, create no-drive zones around delicate areas of the course, and monitor pace of play, but the in-car touchscreen also gives golfers precise shot and distance information, flyover video graphics of each hole, and a live leaderboard during competitions.
The fleet, delivered and maintained by local dealers Buggyman, also features a range of utility vehicles to assist with resort operations, including one Transporter 6, one Café Express, and two Housekeeping Utility vehicles.
Kevin Hart, Director of Golf Sales EMEA at Club Car, said: “The fact that Adare Manor, one of the finest resorts in the world, sees Club Car as the brand of choice is a powerful testament to the quality of our product and the service we provide.”
The last 12 months have seen Club Car bolster its strong reputation across the “Emerald Isle”, with other esteemed venues such as Carton House, St Anne’s Golf Club, Palmerston House Golf Club, all located near Dublin, as well as Dromoland Castle Golf & Country Club, near Limerick, all taking delivery of Club Car fleets.
