Club Car, the world's largest manufacturer of small-wheel electric vehicles and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, a world leader in creating comfortable, sustainable and efficient environments, has been appointed the official supplier of St. Andrews Links Trust (SALT), one of the most distinguished golf complexes in the world and the Home of Golf. 

As one of the most respected brands in the golf industry for more than 50 years, Club Car will play an integral role in the operation of SALT's seven public courses, which includes the world renowned Old Course, a 29-time Open Championship venue, where golf has been played for more than 600 years.

“At the home of golf we pride ourselves on working with the very best suppliers and believe that, in Club Car, we have found the market leaders in golf car and utility vehicles,” said Danny Campbell, commercial director of SALT. 

“We have a commitment to delivering memorable experiences for every golfer at the Links and believe this partnership will help us to achieve that objective.”

“It is vitally important we maintain our impeccable standards of service for the thousands of golfers who visit the Home of Golf each year and we believe that with the new partnership with Club Car, SALT and all of the golfers that play our courses will benefit from the highest quality of service support,” Campbell said.

“This experience enables Club Car, alongside our newly established distributor in Scotland, MTS, to be able to provide the top class service and operational support required to ensure this unique relationship with SALT develops into a trusted partnership over the coming years.”
