Bowood switches to “exceptional” Club Car


Bowood Hotel, Golf and Spa Resort, the luxury retreat in Wiltshire, UK, has chosen Club Car as its new supplier of golf vehicles and installed a fleet of  state-of-the-art Tempos.

The PGA partner venue has an 18-hole golf course and a PGA Academy and performance studio, nestled in the heart of the Bowood Estate – home to Bowood House & Gardens – and is complemented by five-star boutique-style accommodation and an award-winning spa.

Jeff Condliffe, General Manager at Bowood, said: “We switched to Club Car because of their reputation as the best in the business, and the new cars have already made a big difference.

“We went with lithium-ion batteries so we’re saving money on charging costs, and we can easily get 36 holes from one charge.

“Our customers are loving them. They look sharp and really stand out when you see them on the walk in. It elevates the experience for our golfers, and the service we’ve received from Club Car and the dealer, Hunt Forest, has been exceptional.”

The Tempo cars, which deliver outstanding hill-climbing power and acceleration, are branded with Bowood’s livery and customised in a dark blue finish.

Andy Bourke, Club Car’s Regional Sales Manager UK, Ireland, Scandinavia and Iceland, said: “It gives us great pride to hear that a venue as prestigious as Bowood Hotel, Golf & Spa Resort is so happy with the decision to switch to Club Car, from both a product and a service point of view.”
