Costa Blanca, Spain: Las Colinas Golf & Country Club, one of Continental Europe’s Top-100 Courses, is catering to an increasing demand for first-class service with the addition of 45 new, top-of-the-range Club Car vehicles to extend its overall buggy fleet to 70.
Speaking with a positive market outlook, Cristobal Guerrero, Managing Director at Las Colinas, said: “We are pleased to develop our successful relationship with Club Car and align our services with projected demand from European golfers. This is a significant investment and one we have made to further enhance our guest experience.
“We have made strategic decisions to advance the resort’s facilities for both visitors and property owners, and this is just another example of our commitment to excellence.”
The Troon-managed resort in the middle of Spain’s fastest growing golf destination is the first venue in Europe to have implemented Club Car’s new Precedent i3 vehicles, launched in early 2014.
Regarded as the premier product in the market, the new models include the latest Visage GPS and touch screen technology, which come as standard.
The solution links with the club’s operating system to communicate up-to-the-minute fleet performance information and diagnostics, and provides clubhouse services on the course.
Operators can now receive, in real time via smartphone, tablet and computer, enhanced information on battery status, service notifications and detailed diagnostics that can help mitigate and prevent maintenance issues, while also administering full car control, including speed restrictions, zonal markings and staging.
Golfers using the new cars will also be able to get hole-by-hole flyovers and GPS distances to pins and points of interest, as well as create electronic scorecards to keep a detailed track of their scores.
Such advantages ensure the course and club run as efficiently as possible, and that property owners, golf members and daily players continue to experience pioneering levels of service and comfort.
The full fleet will be in operation from July 1 and with the standard cost of hire for 18 holes only €30, Las Colinas remains one of the most competitive in the area for golfers.
Club Car is an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
The tranquil setting of Las Colinas has become a much sought after destination for travellers and investors from around Europe, the Gulf Cooperation Council and China.
