Carryway are the Official Golf Buggy Supplier to The 2019 Solheim Cup

March 19, 2019

 

We are excited to announce that Carryway will be supplying and supporting The 2019 Solheim Cup held at Gleneagles Hotel, Scotland between the 9th -15th September. As Official Suppliers, Carryway will be joining event Partners such as Ping, Rolex, VisitScotland, Highland Spring and John Deere.

At Carryway we will be responsible for the coordination, delivery and support activities related to the supply of over 200 Club Car golf and Club Car utility vehicles.  This sizable fleet will consist of 14 team buggies for players and caddies, however, the bulk of the vehicles will offer transport solutions to the vital support teams. Our vehicles will be tasked with “keeping the wheels turning” at the event, ensuring teams such as the Security, Medical Support, Media and TV along with Course Marshals and Scorers have the transport solutions they will need on site.

The Solheim Cup, which has taken place every two years since 1990, is contested over three days by two teams of 12 players, comprising the biggest names in women’s golf from Europe and the USA.

This year’s Solheim Cup will embody themes of experience, equality and innovation and aims to raise the profile of women’s golf by engaging both traditional golf fans along with the wider sports audience.

Organisers are aiming to set new attendance and viewing records at this year’s tournament, beating the records set during The 2017 Solheim Cup in Iowa where the USA retained the trophy by beating Team Europe 16 ½ to 11 ½ points.

Sarah Black, Carryway’s Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to be involved in what will be one of the biggest women’s sports events in 2019, and  we look forward to working with the team in helping deliver the best Solheim Cup to date.”

2019 is shaping up to be our most successful year to date for Carryway event bookings, both for corporate and sporting fixtures. Following significant investments in the fleet of vehicles, infrastructure and event support services, we are very positive to see our calendar filling up with exciting tournaments, festivals, exhibitions and sporting events.

Preparation for The 2019 Solheim Cup has already begun with our team working with the event organisers IMG to finalise logistical and operational details as well as the themes for this year’s Captains’ cars, which will be centre stage throughout the event and the build-up.

As we embark on this exciting journey we will be documenting every stage of the build-up, preparation and supply over the next few months. Be sure to check in to our news section or follow us on social media to keep up to date with our progress as Official Solheim Cup Suppliers.

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.
