Augusta, Georgia, United States: Club Car headed to the 2021 PGA Show with its new, industry-leading second-generation Tempo Lithium-ion vehicle, Tempo Walk autonomous caddie and connectivity solutions on display.
“The PGA Merchandise Show is an event we look forward to every year,” said Mark Wagner, President of Club Car, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation. “The ability to connect with our customers, highlight our support of the game and showcase our product offering is a great way to start the year.”
The new, second-generation, Tempo Li-ion vehicle that launched last summer was on display. The all-new battery system boasts industry-leading range in a zero maintenance package; ensuring golf course operators have confidence in the single-charge range while reducing their total cost of ownership.
Throughout 2020 the golf industry had to react to Covid-19 and the social distancing requirements. Club Car’s Tempo Walk instantly became a big success for golf course operators by adding a unique golfer experience and new revenue opportunity; the stylish, hands-free caddie ensured golfers were able to enjoy the game while adhering to CDC guidelines.
Demand for in-vehicle entertainment and connected golf cars continued to rise during the global pandemic. Club Car Connect saw record growth in 2020 with more cars equipped with GPS connectivity and in-car entertainment through the Shark Experience.
Golfers have taken to on-course entertainment with one in four golfers streaming music on course. Club Car’s Shark Experience provides golfers with the industry’s most comprehensive entertainment offering, from music to video.
Lastly, Club Car announced its title sponsorship of the Club Car Championship at The Landings Club.
Wagner said: “We are excited to deepen our relationship with the PGA Tour by the addition of the Korn Ferry Tour event title sponsorship. The Club Car Championship at The Landings Club allows us to showcase our Onward line of consumer vehicles within The Landings Club, the greater Savannah area and to all the fans of the PGA Tour.”
This title sponsorship builds on Club Car’s 30-year relationship with the PGA Tour and creates a new opportunity to reach golf enthusiasts.
For over 60 years Club Car has been an integral part of the game of golf. As the official golf car of the PGA of America, TPC Network, and US Kids Golf, Club Car is active in a wide variety of grow-the-game initiatives and industry partnerships.
