London, England: Club Car has, once more, proved to be a driving force behind the scenes of The Ryder Cup, according to Paul Dunstan, European Tour Assistant Operations Director.

As Official Supplier to The 2014 Ryder Cup, staged at Gleneagles, Scotland, the world’s largest manufacturer of small-wheel, zero-emissions electric vehicles supplied its largest ever fleet to assist operations ahead of, during and after the 40th edition of the biennial match.

In total, more than 540 vehicles were provided by Club Car, including 40 Precedent and 490 Carryalls, for a wide variety of users, from the captains of each team, to support staff such as scaffolders, plumbers and electricians.

Reflecting on The 2014 Ryder Cup, Dunstan said: “The greatest compliment I can pay Club Car is that I didn’t have to think about them once throughout the event.

“Thanks to the reliability of its products and their outstanding on-site support network, any minor problems that did arise were dealt with expertly and efficiently before becoming an issue.

“The trust we can place in Club Car is invaluable. The strains of staging an event of The Ryder Cup’s magnitude, not to mention the week-by-week requirements of the European Tour, can be challenging, but we have yet to ask a question of Club Car that can’t be answered with consummate professionalism.”

Richard Hills, European Ryder Cup Director, said: “We value the relationship with all our partners and Club Car continues to play a pivotal role throughout the European Tour season as well as at The Ryder Cup.”
