MTS Support the 2016 Have a Heart Charity Golf Event at Close House

June 2, 2016

Once again MTS Group has been on hand to support the annual Have a Heart charity golf day at Newcastle’s fantastic Close House Golf Course. The star studded event featured over 50 celebrities including Ant & Dec, Alan Shearer, Lee Westwood, Ronan Keating and Iain Wright to name just a few, all who gave up their time to turn up and support this fantastic cause. Close House hosts a number of charity golf events throughout the year on its two 18 hole courses, however the Have a Heart golf day is certainly the largest.

This year’s golf day featured over 100 Club Car golf and utility vehicles with an additional 90 event hire buggy’s and Carryall utility vehicles having been supplied by MTS Group for use on the day, making this our largest ever event. Every guest had the shared use of a Precedent golf buggy for the day and a fleet of Carryall utility vehicles were used for ferrying stewards and other staff around the facility. All of which were shipped in during the week prior from our Birtley Depot with the assistance of our other Depots in Scotland, Wakefield and Lancashire.

In total this year’s golf day was able to raise over half a million pounds for the Children’s Heart Unit Fund (CHUF) who in 2015 were named North East Charity of the Year. This brilliant charity helps children with life threatening heart conditions by supporting both them and their families. We at MTS were proud to have played a small part in contributing towards this cause by offering a £500 donation. Again for another year would like to thank all at Close House who contribute towards to success of this event, allowing the money to be raised to help support the CHUF charity.

Testimonials

Andrew Fairnie – Golf Services Manager, The Gleneagles Hotel

Our guests have high expectations when they come to golf at Gleneagles, and the classic aesthetics and high quality finish on the Club Car vehicles have met their needs perfectly.

The GPS system in particular has been very popular – in addition to providing course information, it even allows golfers to email themselves their score card to review at home.

Nick Rushworth – Golf Operations Director, MacDonald Linden Hall

It is a pleasure to work with MTS Golf and Utility Vehicles, 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.
