Club Car Extends Premier Partner Sponsorship of NGCOA
Hughes Calls Manufacturer’s Commitment to the Association “Unprecedented in the History of Our Organization”
CHARLESTON, S.C. (Dec. 17, 2007) – Club Car will continue its industry-leading support of golf course owners and operators as the NGCOA’s exclusive Premier Partner, according to Mike Hughes, CEO of the NGCOA. The announcement of the multi-year sponsorship extension was made today at NGCOA headquarters here and at Club Car’s annual sales meeting at Reynolds Plantation in Greensboro, Ga.
“Club Car’s commitment to the association and our members is unprecedented in the history of our organization,” Hughes said. “We look forward to building on the success of the last six years in ways that will continue to help our members and enhance the Club Car brand.”
Under terms of the agreement, Club Car, which became the NGCOA’s first exclusive Premier Partner in 2002, will continue to work with the association to provide products and services that support the growth of the game and the success of members’ businesses. In addition to its support of educational programs and networking opportunities at the national and chapter levels, Club Car also provides assistance to NGCOA members through the Club Car Solutions Network. The Solutions Network gives owners and operators access to a wide range of complementary products and services, including those offered by Club Car parent company Ingersoll Rand.
“Owners and operators play a vital role in the health and vitality of the golf industry,” said Robert McElreath, Club Car’s vice president of global marketing. “We’re excited about opportunities to continue to strengthen our partnership with the NGCOA in ways that strengthen the game.”
