Club Car extends long-term backing of European Tour

Golf’s European Tour has extended its long-running partnership with electric vehicle manufacturer Club Car.

The two parties have signed a new four-year partnership. Club Car has been an official supplier of the European Tour since 1999 and has also held the same position at every European edition of the Ryder Cup since 1997.

During the 2019 season, over 100 Club Car vehicles will be used at Tour events around the world. Some 550 vehicles were used during the 2018 Ryder Cup at Le Golf National in Paris.

Marco Natale, vice-president, EMEA at Club Car, said: “The European Tour’s range of tournaments provides Club Car the perfect platform to showcase the quality and reliability of its vehicles to millions of spectators.”

Club Car is also an official supplier of golf cars to the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) and the PGA of America.
