Birmingham, England: Former Ryder Cup venue The Belfry Hotel & Resort has extended its partnership with Club Car, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
The luxurious resort in the English Midlands has taken delivery of 80 state-of-the-art Precedent i3 vehicles, which are set to take golfing experiences at The Belfry to the next level.
Golfers will be able to hire one of the new vehicles across the three courses at The Belfry ‘and experience the ultimate in comfort, stability and experience while playing on the world-famous Brabazon, PGA National and Derby layouts’.
The Precedent i3 vehicles provide a host of benefits for golfers with the inclusion of its market-leading Visage technology. The in-built GPS system provides accurate yardages for each shot, as well as a full flyover of the hole as you move on to the next tee.
The interactive touch screen also allows golfers to keep updated with live leaderboards, while its innovative two-way communication system gives the opportunity to order food and drink wherever you are on the course.
The new vehicles also provide benefits for The Belfry team, specifically relating to the Visage system’s ability to limit access of the vehicles to certain areas of the course, protecting teeing areas and approaches.
In addition, the technology enables the Course Manager to monitor pace of play across all three courses.
Ian Knox, Director of Golf at The Belfry, said: “We are delighted to have extended our partnership with Club Car. Here at The Belfry, we always want to align ourselves with leading brands that aim to provide the ultimate golfing experiences, and Club Car certainly fits that profile.
“We have a long-standing relationship with Club Car, while the staff at the company’s official distributor, CaddyCars, have always provided excellent service and first-class vehicles that any golfer visiting The Belfry can rely on.
“The new fleet certainly delivers the next level of experience for guests on any of our three courses and provides advanced monitoring systems to help ensure everything runs smoothly.”
Kevin Hart, Sales Director Golf, Club Car – Europe, Middle East and Africa, said: “The Belfry is the only venue to host The Ryder Cup on four separate occasions, while Club Car has acted as the Official Supplier at every Ryder Cup since 1995.
“This shared heritage of successfully delivering one of the world’s biggest sporting events, along with the importance of providing an unrivalled level of customer service, has helped to establish a successful relationship between The Belfry and Club Car and we look forward to continuing this partnership.”
