First Club Car buggies make it to Gleneagles
The first Club Car vehicles for use in The 2014 Ryder Cup are on site at Gleneagles Hotel, Scotland, to assist pre-event operations.
With two months to go until one of the world’s largest sporting events tees off, the Official Supplier to The 2014 Ryder Cup has delivered the first 40 vehicles, of more than 300 that will be supplied in total, which will be used during the event.
As part of its dedication to The Ryder Cup, Club Car’s northern England business partner, MTS Golf & Utility, recently opened a new Scotland-based facility in Cumbernauld – just 30 miles from Gleneagles Hotel – from where the bulk of the vehicles will be delivered.
The presence of Marc Dufour, Club Car CEO, at the new facility’s official opening underlined the significance of this new venture. He was joined by MTS Group’s Managing Director, Peter Watson, who said: “After analysing the market in 2013, we realised the golf car needs of Scottish golf clubs weren’t being met.
Club Car, the world’s largest manufacturer of small-wheel, zero-emissions electric vehicles, is also an Official Supplier to The European Tour and has been named main provider to The 2015 Solheim Cup which will be held at St. Leon-Rot Golf Club, Germany.
