Perfect Timing for Delivery of Club Car Carts

Yas Acres has taken delivery of 45 Club Car carts.

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates: Yas Acres Golf & Country Club has received 45 new golf carts in a sign that the club intends to embrace the latest technologies from the get-go, as part of the golf course’s efforts to implement widespread best practice across the family-friendly modernised country club.

Each cart is fully equipped with the latest Club Car Connect GPS system, allowing golfers to have accurate yardages to the pin as well as offering access to a host of other features.

The golf carts’ arrival is perfectly timed with the onset of the warmer summer months and top temperatures often exceeding 40˚C. Until now, all players have been required to either carry their own bags or have been provided with a trolley to navigate the nine-hole course.

There are a range of summer deals and discounts being offered by the club, including a May Special that allows golfers to play at discounted rates all day every Monday, with prices starting at AED150 for members and AED175 for guests. From June to September, Yas Acres Golf & Country Club is offering Summer Bundles at the club starting from AED75 per round.

All the golf carts are a dark green colour in order to fit in with the natural surroundings of the course and also boast amenities, including a cooler box, sand bottles plus a club and ball washer. Action zones will keep all players and members safe whilst out on the golf course by limiting each cart’s speed in high activity and busy areas.

Commenting on the acquisition of some of the industry’s most advanced golf carts, James Durkin, Golf Operations Manager at Yas Acres Golf & Country Club, said: “We are delighted to have received our fleet of carts and to be able to add value to our members and guests experience. Whilst we have seen a fantastic reaction to ‘walking only’ throughout our soft opening, we recognise that we are fast approaching the summer months and a golf cart is a necessity to make the most of this fabulous nine-hole course.

“Our partners at Luxury Carts and Club Car have worked tirelessly to deliver the fleet of golf carts in time for the summer, for which we are very grateful, and will allow our members and guests to get the most out of their summer golf.

“Moving forward, the cart fee will be included in the price of the green fee, and as we come out of the summer season, we will be giving golfers the option to walk in non-peak times to allow golfers to continue to enjoy the health benefits that have been enjoyed by many. The fleet vehicles are equipped with all the amenities that you would expect, including the latest GPS system through Club Car Connect allowing all golfers to view yardages with pinpoint accuracy.”

Simon Lupton, Sales Director at Luxury Carts, said: “We are delighted to supply a fleet of Club Car golf carts to Yas Acres Golf & Country Club, one of the region’s most prestigious new golf courses. We are committed to providing the highest level of service and support to the club in order to deliver a premium experience to all their golfers.”
