Motocaddy, the brand leader in powered golf trolleys, has introduced an advanced version of its hugely popular S1 model featuring downhill speed control and the UK’s first electronic parking brake.

The new S1 DHC electric trolley incorporates the same features as the latest 2016 S1 model, but can maintain a constant speed while moving down a gradient – thanks to a special single motor that offers downhill braking coupled with an electronic parking brake.

The motor automatically adjusts its power output to control the rate of descent without the golfer having to make any adjustment to the pre-hill speed setting, while the exclusive parking brake will hold its position even on the steepest of slopes thanks to a proven solenoid braking system.

As well as the obvious advantage of greater control on undulating golf courses, the latest Motocaddy S-Series trolley is significantly lighter in weight than previous dual-motored models boasting similar functionality for demanding terrain.

“A growing number of customers were asking us for a downhill control model,” said Neil Parker, Sales Director. “It’s proved itself in markets where golf course gradients are often more severe and we believe demand here will be significant.”

The S1 DHC trolley is available with Lithium battery only at a RRP of £499.99, or £549.99 for the Extended Lithium version. For more information on all Motocaddy trolleys, bags, batteries and accessories, please visit www.motocaddy.com.

It could take the form of a chartered private jet to Augusta to watch The Masters next April; staying in a luxury condo with its own chef, chauffeur and spa therapist whilst playing exclusive courses nearby. Or, perhaps a VIP trip of a lifetime to The Ryder Cup at Hazeltine National this September to watch 2016 Major winners Danny Willett and Henrik Stenson competing in a European team hoping to retain the trophy.

The couple regularly use the ClubstoHire service when travelling to play golf in Puerto Banus, Spain, which is how they heard about the new ClubstoBuy service. (more…)

Thousands of golfing holidaymakers who enjoyed playing a few rounds with new rental clubs last year, can now buy the clubs they used direct from the hire company who supplied them at ClubstoBuy.com.

Six years after making it affordable and convenient for travelling golfers to rent golf clubs abroad and avoid heavy airline charges, ClubstoHire.com is launching an after sales service to meet demand from satisfied customers who paid an average of €40 per week for a set in places such as the Algarve in Portugal to Cape Town in South Africa.

The No.1 golf club rental operator worldwide with 26 locations in 12 countries and almost 250,000 customers since it began, is now offering its used inventory at ClubstoBuy.com.

Used clubs from leading golf brands such as TaylorMade, Callaway, Mizuno and Wilson Staff are on sale at competitive prices to rival any club resale specialist. The site went live this week.

A customer survey conducted by ClubstoHire.com, the No.1 golf club rental operator worldwide, has found that over 96% of golfers plan to take two or more golfing holidays during the next two years.

And of the 2,300 travelling golfers who took part in the survey, two-thirds (66%) indicated that they intend to take as many as three or more golfing holidays over the same period. Most rental customers have a handicap of 18 and above.

The results point to continued growth in the golf travel industry and are welcomed by ClubstoHire as it looks to expand a service that has helped travelling golfers save an estimated £2.7m (€3.5m/$4m) in airline excess charges over the past five years. (more…)
