Manor House Golf Club in Wiltshire has purchased a fleet of 50 golf carts from leading manufacturer, Club Car.

The lithium battery cars each include full GPS Face touchscreens, designed to further enhance the golfer’s experience on the course. The new fleet’s improved GPS systems provide golfers with more accurate distance measurement and location services.

State-of-the-art strollers have additional environmental benefits, including lighter weight than older lead-acid battery strollers. Each battery charge lasts approximately 12 hours, allowing golfers to complete 36 holes without loss of power.

Requiring fewer charges and therefore less energy consumption, these lithium buggies should also soon be charged using the sun’s energy. The club will install solar panels on the roof of the buggy shop, further enhancing The Manor House’s ambitions to create a more sustainable golf club.

Andrew Ryan, Golf Club Manager at Manor House Golf Club, said: “This buggy fleet has been a great investment for our club. We are always looking for ways to improve the golfer experience here and become more sustainable. These strollers allow us to improve all that.”

In the style of British golf clubs, the new buggy fleet also comes with rain covers for all golf bags – to help members and guests play in all weathers. This is particularly useful for golfers at The Manor House, as the course benefits from exceptional drainage conditions and tarmac buggy paths, allowing golfers to play in all weather conditions, all year round.

In addition, all strollers have also been equipped with two USB charging ports, to keep golfers connected during their game. This should prove popular with the club’s corporate members in particular, who benefit from members-only tee times as well as use of the club’s meeting rooms.

Future plans for the new buggies include the ability for golfers to order food from the clubhouse during a round. The Manor House Golf Team plans to offer a limited selection of menu items that can be ordered using the touch screens at the 8th hole. Golfers can then pick up their order at the club’s Airstream halfway house.

Andrew Ryan added: “We are delighted to offer golfers more choice when it comes to ‘on-course’ refreshments while they play. We are testing this now and aim to launch the service fully in the early summer months.”
