Club Car appointed preferred golf car of the Presidents Cup
CLUB Car has been appointed preferred Golf Car of the Presidents Cup 2011 and will be providing over 200 golf and utility vehicles to tournament organisers, players and broadcasters during the event at Royal Melbourne in November.
“ This will be the biggest single golf event in Australia over a 20 year period and I’m delighted that we are able to play a part in staging and supporting it,” said Kevin Gates, Vice President, Asia/Pacific at Club Car
NBC Sports Golf Channel will make exclusive use of Club Car Turf Utility Vehicles during the event. Over 40 Club Car Turf 2 Utility Vehicles will provide transportation solutions to the production crews and cameras across the facility.
“Given the significance of The Presidents Cup 2011, we’ve opted to supply all vehicles to the event brand new – we see no point in supplying anything less than new, premium product to this premier event” added Club Car CEO Gary Michel from his office in Augusta Georgia. “ The Presidents Cup 2011 at Royal Melbourne will provide a wonderful opportunity for us to demonstrate our willingness and ability to support world class events in any part of the world.”
Vehicles for The Presidents Cup 2011 will begin arriving in Australia in September and will be prepared, dressed with Presidents Cup 2011 livery and stored in preparation for the tournament.
