Augusta, United States: Club Car has received Golf Digest’s 2016 Editors’ Choice Award for Best Golf Car for the Precedent i3 in the Best Club Transport Category.
The Editors’ Choice Awards were created to recognise the ‘Best Things in Golf’ with an emphasis on lifestyle properties, products and services.
Golf Digest selected the Precedent i3 electric model for several reasons, including the new, efficient battery charging system, which reduces energy consumption, and the car’s built-in connectivity that appeals to players.
The Precedent i3 is the first golf car with Connected technology as a standard feature. The editors touted this feature for its ability to offer precise yardages to the flag, a view of hole flyovers and real-time tournament leaderboards.
The award also recognised the benefits the Precedent i3 offered golf facilities, from the goodwill of satisfied customers to the ability to capture players’ emails (via scorecards) for future marketing efforts.
“This award reinforces our focus on experience-centric technology and innovation for both the operator and golfer,” said Marc Dufour, President and Chief Executive Officer of Club Car, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
“Golf course operators have long recognised Club Car as the leading brand in technology. This honour provides credibility from a golfer’s perspective that Club Car is enhancing the on-course golf experience.”
Singapore: Cho Minn Thant has highlighted the ‘sense of solidarity’ displayed by Asian Tour members at this week’s Annual General Meeting.
