Cars at Golf’s Ryder Cup To Be Solar Powered For First Time

Club Car, a global leader in golf, consumer and utility vehicles, is using solar power to charge fleet vehicles on location for the first time at the Ryder Cup, the leading golf event that pits Europe Versus the US.

“To be the Worldwide Supplier of one of the world’s premier sporting events for such a long time is a great honor for Club Car,” said Kevin Hart, Golf Sales Director for Club Car in EuropeMiddle East, and Africa.

As the Worldwide Supplier of the Ryder Cup, Club Car has shipped and assembled a fleet of 550 cars to assist with the staging and support of the event being held September 25 – October 1, 2023 at Marco Simone Golf & Country Club in Rome, Italy. The large fleet consists of six red and six blue team cars, driven by captains Luke Donald and Zach Johnson and their respective vice-captains, plus hundreds more golf, turf and utility cars to assist with almost every area of the Ryder Cup from media and broadcasting to security and medical transportation.

For the first time in Ryder Cup history, the majority of cars in the fleet will be charged using a bank of solar panels.

“This is the first time we’ve had solar-powered charging points. It ties in with our sustainability policy and commitment to be carbon neutral by 2040,” Dunstan added.

“We are excited to support the Ryder Cup in their work to achieve their sustainability goals.  Using solar power to charge the Club Car fleet is a significant step in fulfilling their commitment,” said Hart.
