Club Car reports that the first vehicles for use in The 2014 Ryder Cup are on site at Gleneagles Hotel, Scotland, to assist pre-event operations. With two months to go until one of the world’s largest sporting events tees off, the Official Supplier to The 2014 Ryder Cup has delivered the first 40 vehicles, of more than 300 that will be supplied in total, which will be used during the event.
Club Car’s northern England business partner, MTS Golf & Utility, recently opened a new Scotland-based facility in Cumbernauld, 30 miles from Gleneagles Hotel, from where the bulk of the vehicles will be delivered.
Marc Dufour, Club Car CEO, was at the new facility’s official opening, joined by MTS Group’s Managing Director, Peter Watson, who said, “After analysing the market in 2013, we realised the golf car needs of Scottish golf clubs weren’t being met. This knowledge, combined with The Ryder Cup contract, proved the catalyst for opening our Cumbernauld facility and are looking forward to being the hub of the event’s fleet and logistical needs.”
