E-Z-GO in new EGU sponsorship

8.00am 9th November 2005 - Sponsorship & Events

E-Z-GO has agreed to supply the English Golf Union with golf cars for all their Championship events and will also become the first sponsor of the EGU Community.
After a successful 2005, when E-Z-GO vehicles were used at the European Men’s Team Championship and the Home Internationals in addition to the major annual national events, E-Z-GO will now become the exclusive supplier of golf cars to the EGU for the next three years. E-Z-GO will be supplying MPT utility vehicles and 2 and 4 seater shuttles for all 2006 EGU events. The cars will be maintained and transported by Leeds Golf Car Company one of E-Z-GO’s main dealers.
Lynne Fraser, EGU Marketing and PR Manager said, “2005 was a very busy year for our Championships team with England hosting the Home Internationals and the European Mens Team events in addition to the national tournaments. The support from E-Z-GO and Leeds Golf Car Company ensured we had one less thing to worry about and I am delighted that we have secured an exclusive arrangement for 2006 and beyond.”
As part of the sponsorship agreement E-Z-GO will also be supporting the EGU Community, an email-based service designed to enable golf clubs to rapidly share information with each other. Already used by over 1,000 clubs in England the EGU Community is a free service that allows clubs to offer advice and solutions to other clubs questions.
Richard Tyrrell, international sales manager at E-Z-GO commented, “It’s a privilege to receive the endorsement of the EGU. We are looking forward to building on our relationship and supporting them throughout 2006.”
