Golfstream, the leading UK powered golf trolley and spares business, has just celebrated its first birthday with a strong winter and signs of a record-breaking spring and summer.

The Canterbury, Kent-based business has recently opened accounts in Germany, Spain, Sweden, Denmark and France and even while the UK was covered in snow enjoyed sales as strong as it had previously experienced in June.

Following demand from customers, Golfstream has increased its range of spares by 20% during the year with British-made clutches, electronics motors and gearboxes sitting alongside batteries and chargers as the most popular items.

Visits to the company’s website are also up by 40%, with a 50/50 split between trade and consumer inquiries, and by holding £100,000 of spares in stock at any one time fast turnaround times are guaranteed.

Golfstream’s Derek Richford says: “We’ve had a really good year despite the economic downturn and the golf market experiencing terrible winter weather, so we’re delighted with the way things are going.

“Our customer base is growing daily with new Pros and consumers and we’re opening accounts across Europe and internationally. To experience summer sales in the depth of an horrendous winter was extremely promising and demonstrates that our commitment to good stock availability and fast turnaround times is paying dividends.”

As well as launching its own Golfstream Revolution Trolley at the Golf Europe show, Golfstream has also recently agreed to distribute the all-new e-CADDY range of electric golf trolleys.
