No.1 electric trolley brand, PowaKaddy, has announced details of its exciting electric trolley rental offering for 2019, with its PowaKaddy Rental GPS set to provide golf club professionals and resorts with an even greater opportunity to boost trolley hire revenue.
Helping to deliver a super-fast return on investment, the GPS rental fleet promises to offer PGA Professionals not only a higher charge-out rate, but also a more technologically advanced product that can help increase retail sales.
Since its introduction to the market this year as the world’s first GPS Rental Electric Trolley, the PowaKaddy Rental GPS has revolutionised the way golfers manage their game, providing accurate distances to the front, middle and back of greens all on a stunning intelligent digital 2.8” widescreen display, located conveniently on the handle of the trolley.
As well as coming with PowaKaddy’s 36-hole Lithium battery, which is the thinnest and most powerful design on the market, the PowaKaddy Rental GPS also boasts wireless Bluetooth capability which enables PGA Professionals to keep their fleet updated with any course changes.
PowaKaddy recorded a 40% increase in rental units in 2018, with numerous clubs and resorts across the UK and Europe experiencing a surge in revenue generated through electric trolley loans.
Commenting on the rental fleet, PowaKaddy’s CEO, David Catford, said: “The PowaKaddy Rental GPS trolley is proving incredibly popular. By offering our accounts a premium electric trolley solution, PGA Professionals are able to double their investment in as little as two months. Most accounts sell these trolleys to the consumer after the first year whilst they are still in great condition and with the transferrable warranty intact and at a profit based on what they paid! It’s also an ideal way for golfers who are thinking of purchasing a GPS electric trolley to try before they buy.” continued Catford.
2014 Ryder Cup and 2019 Solheim Cup venue, Gleneagles, recently committed to PowaKaddy’s rental programme and will utilise 35 PowaKaddy Rental GPS trolleys to service golfers across its three championship courses in 2019 and beyond.
Commenting on the announcement, Golf Operations Manager, David Blackadder, said: “Here at Gleneagles, we pride ourselves on providing the best possible golf experience and by aligning with the UK’s electric trolley market leader, we’re excited to be able to improve this even further.
“We currently have a fleet of 35 PowaKaddy FW3 rentals which have been hugely successful so we are very excited to be upgrading to the PowaKaddy Rental GPS. Visitors who are unfamiliar with any of our three courses will benefit hugely from the trolley’s industry-leading GPS functionality.”
Moortown Golf Club in Leeds has long been benefitting from PowaKaddy’s rental offering, with Head Professional, Martin Heggie quick to sing the scheme’s praises. “I’ve had a fleet of PowaKaddy rental trolleys for many years and the addition of GPS and an umbrella holder on this year’s trolleys has seen a 25% increase in revenue in the first two months. The fleet of six will be paid for in three months – my best investment of the year.”
Available to order from PowaKaddy Area Sales Managers now, the new PowaKaddy Rental GPS rental scheme is set to offer clubs and their PGA Professionals a host of additional benefits in 2019, including:
