27/08/15 - 24 Club Car Buggy’s Delivered to Houghwood Golf Club

August 27, 2015

This year we have supplied the local Lancashire Golf Club, Houghwood with 24 brand new Club Car I2 Golf Buggy’s. Houghwood Golf Club is an organisation which we have done business with for the past few years, regularly helping out by supplying them with extra buggy’s when needed through our event hire options. However after a number of issues with reliability in the past, the club has this year decided to switch to Club Car with their new fleet of buggy’s purchased from Carryway.

In the world of golf Houghwood is a relatively young course, having opened just over 20 years ago. However in just over two decades the course has grown to be considered one of the finest in the area. When we recently visited the club we were taken back by the stunning views which look right out to the Welsh hills and Lancashire plains, and equally impressed by the quality of the course and greens. The club’s convent location has also surely contributed to its popularity, especially for society and corporate golf days, for which Houghwood is especially popular. Located between Wigan and St Helens, Houghwood can be reached by car in under an hour from both the major cities of Liverpool and Manchester.

With this year’s new fleet of Club Car golf buggy’s Houghwood has opted for nothing but the best, and each of the cars purchased comes fitted with Club Car state of the art Visage system. When speaking to Peter Turner, the clubs Managing Director he explained how he had found the Visage system a huge help. Due to the geo fencing, which allows you to easily set which areas the buggy’s can and cannot drive into (cutting the power if the buggy strays too far) they are able to hire the vehicles year round as they don’t need to worry about sensitive areas being damaged. Health and safety is also less of a worry for Peter as potentially dangerous areas for the buggies such as steep hills can be fenced off digitally. The ability to lock the buggy’s down at night has also reduced the insurance costs for the club, and on top of all this the golfers love the GPS course mapping shown on the LCD display above the drivers head.

Testimonials

Paul Bush OBE – Director of Events, VisitScotland

The Carryway operation was run very professionally and smoothly and to a very high standard. Their knowledge and attention to detail with the complicated planning and logistics involved were exceptional; they were a pleasure to deal with and I can highly recommend their services.

Rachel Mitchell – Senior Manager for Golf Events, IMG Golf

It has been a delight to deal with Carryway, who were our Official Golf Buggy Supplier for The 2019 Solheim Cup. They combine efficient logistics with a professional approach to every aspect of delivery, and the equipment our event benefited from was both functional and stylish. A big thank you to a wonderful Partner.

Dave Player, Team Brit Racing – CEO

The Carryway buggy was a lifesaver – and that’s no exaggeration! We were racing in the Aston Martin Le Mans Festival, which is a 45 mins support race just before the start for the big 24hr race. Our garages were about 2km away so getting all our gear to/from the pitlane for the race was made so simple because of the buggy! And it would have taken (the team) ages to get there and back! We are enormously proud of our new buggy and the livery made for it. It helps us stand out and helps raise our profile, not to mention being an essential team donkey.”

Simon Widowson – Event Men

Thank you Carryway for supplying the buggy for us at Chatsworth this year. All went well and no issues at all – it was a definite improvement on the equipment supplied last year by a different company. Happy to use you again for next year .

Daryn Cochrane – Head of Golf & PGA Professional, The Westerwood Hotel & Golf Resort

Thank you for the excellent customer service that we recently received from Hugh Healy, Carryway Support. Hugh was very thorough and had excellent communications with us regarding our buggy fleet at The Westerwood Resort – nothing was too difficult for him.

Caring For Life / Charity – Carl Rayner

Our open day event is a very important day for us, and it makes life much easier to have a relationship with a company (Carryway) that we can rely on each year.

Carryway are always a pleasure to deal with and their drivers are always friendly and professional. It takes a little bit of worry out of my job knowing that I can rely on your good service.

Many thanks to the team, especially Adam who was friendly, helpful and professional.

Nick Rushworth – Golf Operations Director, MacDonald Linden Hall

It is a pleasure to work with Carryway, the service and support they provide has been first class. We originally signed up for 14 brand new buggies for one year to sample working with the company.

We were pleased with the service and the product provided and have since signed up for the next few seasons and hopefully with many more to come after that.
