The Crail Golfing Society, the seventh oldest golf club in the world, is just one of an international portfolio of clubs which has chosen to use the new Golfstream rental trolleys.
Based in Ramsgate, Kent, Golfstream is the market-leader for 100% British designed and built powered golf trolleys with its Revolution and Evolution Digital models rated as the most reliable and solid trolleys available in the UK.
With UK-made high-grade Electromech electronics, combined with an outstanding build quality, Golfstream’s trolleys are perfect for the high-use rental market.
Increasing numbers of professionals are switching on to rental trolleys as a revenue generator. At just £10 a round for half of the golfing days available in the calendar, a fleet of four Golfstream trolleys would earn £5,000 a year – that figure rising dramatically with morning and afternoon rental in British Summer Time.
As well as Crail Golfing Society, which was established in 1786, other converts to the Golfstream rental range include, Blairgowrie GC, Spalding GC and one of Tenerife’s most prestigious resorts – which has taken 50 braking Evolution Digital trolleys with lithium batteries.
Said Derek Richford, Golfstream managing director: “All our rental customers understand that working with a British supplier, with reliable British-made products and a massive spares and after-care service is the perfect option when it comes to the rental market.
“Golf professionals and clubs cannot run a successful rental business with the threat of frequent breakdown, poor reliability and the risk that spare parts might be on a slow boat from China. Unfortunately, all or some of those risks exist with some of the biggest trolley brands in golf – but not with Golfstream.”
Fast-growing Golfstream is Europe’s leading name in trolley spares and accessories and excels when it comes to producing powered golf trolleys that are designed, manufactured and assembled in the UK.
The company also carries in stock a huge range of wheels, batteries, chargers, golf bags, spares and accessories for most popular trolley brands – which the company dispatches all over Europe.
This includes CaddyCell – a best-selling superlight Lithium-Ion battery which is more than 75% lighter than a standard lead acid battery. The CaddyCell Lithium weighs just 2.1 kilos and can be lifted with a single finger.
Golfstream is partner supplier to the TGI Partnership and recently launched a bespoke Golfstream Edge trolley for the group.
