Gleneagles, Scotland: With two months to go until one of the world’s largest sporting events tees off, Club Car has delivered the first 40 vehicles, of more than 300 that will be supplied in total, which will be used during the Ryder Cup.
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.
“This knowledge, combined with The Ryder Cup contract, proved the catalyst for opening our Cumbernauld facility and are looking forward to being the hub of the event’s fleet and logistical needs.”
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.
Club Car is an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
