Club Car Fleet Driven by Solar Power

Rome, Italy: Club Car is set to mark 26 years of driving the Ryder Cup by using solar power to charge cars on location for the first time.

As the Worldwide Supplier of the Ryder Cup, Club Car has shipped and assembled a fleet of 550 golf and utility cars to assist with the build and delivery of this week’s event at Marco Simone Golf & Country Club.

For the first time in Ryder Cup history, the majority of the fleet will be charged using a bank of solar panels.

“To have been so heavily involved with one of the biggest sporting events in the world for such a long time is a great honour for Club Car,” said Kevin Hart, Golf Sales Director EMEA with Club Car, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

“We’ve been preparing and working towards this event for the last four years. And our team looks forward to seeing the iconic red and blue team cars in action, as well as the hundreds of cars that support tournament operations behind the scenes,” added Hart.

The large fleet consists of six red and six blue team golf cars, driven by captains Luke Donald and Zach Johnson and their respective vice-captains, plus hundreds more golf, turf and utility cars to assist with almost every area of the Ryder Cup from media and broadcasting to security and medical transportation.

Paul Dunstan, Ryder Cup Operations Director, said: “The service Club Car gives us is first class. It’s a very complex site – much like a small town – with a large number of grandstands, hospitality facilities and event infrastructure.

“The best way to navigate the site quickly and efficiently is to use the vehicles Club Car provides.”

Club Car supplies many of the world’s leading golf destinations with its wide range of vehicles, and is an official supplier to the DP World Tour, the Professional Golfers’ Association of Great Britain & Ireland and St Andrews Links Trust.
