Margarethenhof Golf and Country Club is an extensive resort complex in Bavaria overlooking the Tegernsee, a large inland lake, close to the border with Austria. The facility operates a fleet of 20 E-Z-GO electric golf cars, 15 standard RXV models and five Freedom derivatives.
Since opening in 1984, the 6,022 metre, par 70 championship course has been rated one of the most attractive in Germany. In 2012, the course was rebuilt and extensively improved and from the tee on the third hole (the highest in Germany) it is possible to catch a view of Munich.
Marco Hank is the Golf Manager, a position he has held for the past four years. Previous to his arrival at Margarethenhof he spent nine years in various golf management positions and prior to that a further nine years in winter sports marketing.
Commenting on the E-Z-GO fleet said, “The RXV golf car is an excellent vehicle and has performed really well for us here at Margarethenhof. They all have the battery fill system, which enables us to maintain them easily as it is extremely important that the batteries are kept in peak condition. I also like the fact that you don’t have to apply the brakes, they engage automatically when the vehicle stops. The Five Freedom models are upgraded versions of the standard RXV and come with lights and integral bag covers.
“We’ve always had a good experience with E-Z-GO; we had their TXT carts previously and they certainly complement the image of the resort.”
The hotel features 35 luxury rooms with significant coverings of wood reflecting the modern style of Bavaria. There are plans to add an additional floor to increase the accommodation to 50 rooms. A conference suite, sauna, first class restaurant and a newly constructed Pro Shop complete the facility.
Adjacent to the hotel is the new Lanserhof health centre, which represents a Euro 70 million investment by the owners. One of only three centres in Europe, the other two are in Innsbruck and Hamburg, the Lanserhof is a centre for rest, regeneration and revitalisation contained within a spacious and spectacular building designed by multiple award winning architect Christoph Ingenhoven.
“This is a tremendous commitment by our owners to build a world-class wellness centre,” Marco Hank added. “It has 70 luxury rooms and can accommodate just 100 guests with 120 staff to look after them. Our partnerships with valued suppliers are vitally important to us and the E-Z-GO product reflects the image we project across the resort.”
