Last week saw us supply over 40 additional golf buggies and utility vehicles for a one day event at the spectacular Newcastle golf club, Close House. Each year the club puts on a host of charity competitions and events, however the Have a Heart Trophy which took place on the 18th May is by far the largest of the year. The event raises money for the children’s heart unit at the Newcastle Upon Tyne, Freeman Hospital, and sees both of the clubs courses in full use as 200 golfers tee off on the day.
This year’s 2015 trophy welcomed over 50 celebrities who came along to show their support for this fantastic cause. To name just a few, the famous faces included the club’s attached tour pro Lee Westwood, Ant and Dec, and Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer, all of whom were more than happy to let us get a quick shot of them using their Club Car golf buggies.
At Carryway we sent buggies from our Yorkshire, Cumbernauld and County Durham depots to help make up the vast fleet required to ensure every golfer had use of a buggy. Close house also made use of 5 extra petrol utility vehicles for green staff to use as run-around’s during the event. The Carryall 550 vehicles provided had already seen almost as much of the limelight as some of the events guests, having previously been used at the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles Hotel in Perthshire.
In addition to this fleet Carryway also sent two brand new Club Car Precedent golf buggies, which would be donated as prizes in the clubs hole in one competition held on the 9th hole of both the Colt and Filly courses.
This year’s event has proved a huge success and managed to raise £70,000 more than last year, with the total figure raised over £300,000. We would like to thank all at Close House for the hard work which goes into this event, allowing the money to be raised to support The Children’s Heart Unit each year.

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.
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.
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.”
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 .
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.
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.
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.
