Custom cars drive modern approach at The Astbury
The Astbury Golf Club has taken delivery of a new fleet of tailored vehicles, as it extends its partnership with Club Car, the world’s largest manufacturer of small-wheel electric vehicles.
The dozen electric Tempo cars, each fitted with a long-lasting Lithium battery, have been designed to fit with The Astbury’s approach to host the modern golfer.
With several accessories fitted, including dual mobile phone charging points, the vehicles are a mix of industry-leading durability and premium comfort.
The Astbury Golf Club has now partnered with Club Car for more than eight years.
Daniel Hodson, of Hodson Consultants, who has been working with The Astbury Golf Club since October 2019, said: “These new vehicles match our ethos at The Astbury – people should be playing golf to enjoy themselves.
“To push golf into the 21st Century has meant allowing people to be on their phones and these vehicles will enable them to have their devices charged all day. We are embracing the needs of modern-day life.”
The Astbury Golf Club reopened in May 2021 under new owners Faro Capital, who are investing in converting the venue into a luxury golf and lodge resort. Since then, it has welcomed 200 members and hosted 100 corporate and society events.
The development of 300 new lodges is taking place at the site and the club leased a six-seater Club Car Utility vehicle to chauffeur clients around the venue.
The course itself offers a challenge for golfers of all abilities; the Par 71 6,500-yard course has immaculate putting surfaces with subtle undulations that will test the skills of even the very best putter.
Tom Storrar, who joined The Astbury Golf Club as Director of Golf in March 2021, said: “It’s a business partnership that we have with Club Car, not just a service to customer one. Club Car vehicles are a robust product that spend their time on the course and the Lithium battery provides a long charge, which is especially beneficial.”
He also added: “The support we have received from Club Car cannot be faulted, while the after sales care and service process is unmatched.”
Club Car supplies many of the world’s leading golf destinations with its wide range of vehicles, and is an official supplier to the European Tour, the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) and St Andrews Links Trust.
