Dubai: Yas Acres Golf & Country Club, Abu Dhabi, has just received 45 brand new golf carts. Each cart is fully equipped with the latest Club Car Connect GPS system, allowing golfers to have accurate yardages to the pin as well as offering access to a host of other features.

The golf carts arrival couldn’t be more perfectly timed with the onset of the warmer summer months and top temperatures often exceeding 40˚C. Up until now, all players have been required to either carry their own bags or have been provided with a trolley to navigate the world class nine-hole golf course.

Commenting on the club’s acquisition of some of the industry’s most advanced golf carts, James Durkin, Golf Operations Manager at Yas Acres Golf & Country Club said: “We are delighted to have received our fleet of carts and to be able to add value to our members and guests experience. While we have seen a fantastic reaction to ‘walking only’ throughout our soft opening, we recognise that we are fast approaching the summer months and a golf cart is a necessity to make the most of this fabulous nine-hole course.

“Our partners at Luxury Carts and Club Car have worked tirelessly to deliver the fleet of golf carts in time for the summer, for which we are very grateful, and will allow our members and guests to get the most out of their summer golf.”

Future plans

Durkin continued: “Moving forward, the cart fee will be included in the price of the green fee, and as we come out of the summer season, we will be giving golfers the option to walk in non-peak times to allow them to continue to enjoy the health benefits that have been enjoyed by many. The fleet vehicles are equipped with all the amenities that you would expect, including the latest GPS system through Club Car Connect, allowing all golfers to view yardages with pinpoint accuracy.”

Simon Lupton, Sales Director at Luxury Carts, said: “We are delighted to supply a fleet of Club Car golf carts to Yas Acres Golf & Country Club, who are one of the region’s most prestigious new golf courses. We are committed to providing the highest level of service and support to the club in order to deliver a premium experience to all their golfers.”
