Club Car Webinar Focuses On Best Practices For Golf Car Fleet Maintenance
Augusta, Ga., June 22, 2012 - "Golf Car Fleet Maintenance: Protecting Your Investment," a webinar hosted by Club Car to communicate best practices to golf course owners, operators, managers and superintendents, is now available for superintendents, owners and operators who were not able to attend the event. Club Car, one of the most respected names in the golf industry for more than half a century, is a brand of Ingersoll Rand.
"Carefully maintaining your golf cars is one of the most cost-effective investments a facility can make," said Randal Crook, Club Car technical services manager, who led the webinar. "A well-maintained fleet makes a statement about your facility, lowers repair costs and affects the lease price for your next fleet."
Crook was joined on the webinar by Stephen Tucker, a longtime golf course superintendent and the past president of the International Golf Course Equipment Managers Association.
"We know that residual value has a huge effect on our monthly payment, which is one of the main reasons we try to keep our fleet in excellent condition," Tucker said. "The other reason is that our members expect a clean, well-maintained cart that they know is not going to give them any issues during their round."
The webinar covered a wide range of maintenance issues including proper battery charging procedures, front-end alignment, golf car rotation and daily fleet inspections.
