Keeping your Members / Golfers Moving

September 19, 2017


A big challenge that golf clubs around the UK faces is recruiting new members. Retaining them is an even bigger challenge. There are many causes for this, but one of the reasons why even regular golfers give up the game is the sheer physical strain that playing 18 holes can take. The stress of long walks around the golf course can take a toll on golfers’ health and they may hang up their clubs prematurely.

The Solution – Golf Buggy Hire

At MTS Golf, we have a solution. We believe that introducing a golf buggy rental for your members can significantly reduce the strain of the long walk (often over 4 miles) around the golf course required when playing 18 holes.

Encourage your members to focus on the fun aspect of golf by introducing golf carts at your club. This will keep them motivated to stick around the club for longer every time they visit your club. What’s more, they will soon realise that the use of a golf cart significantly reduces the physical strain so they can focus all their energy on playing their game and improving it further.

Make your Members Enjoy Golfing

In fact, this one move can help you in retaining the interest of lifelong golfers who may have otherwise given up the game owing to their age. According to a study by Sports Marketing Surveys Inc., the average age of regular weekly golfers in the UK rose from 48 to 63 between the years 2009 and 2014.

When you add a golf buggy rental fleet to your club, you will help fulfil the requirements and demands of your existing members while also answering the desires of the new members.

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.
