Stewart Golf provide Europe's first fleet
Of their top end X9 Follow
British trolley manufacturer Stewart Golf has pulled off quite a coup as it has announced Europe’s first fleet of X9 Follows with Austria’s prestigious Kitzbühel Golf Club taking delivery of 30 machines. Nice work chaps!
Stewart Golf CEO Mark Stewart visited Kitzbühel and met staff and members of the golf club to gather feedback on the fleet. Every machine was handbuilt at Stewart Golf’s new factory in the UK and fitted with their individual fleet number to allow easy identification.
While at the club Mark Stewart interviewed Martin Kerscher, President of Kitzbühel GC and golf industry stalwart. When asked “why he chose the X9 Follow for Kitzbühel?” he replied:
“They are the best golf trolleys you can have. They have everything we need.”
The versatility of the X9 Follow’s design fits perfectly with the course layout and landscape. With several water features, bridges and undulating terrain, the ability to easily switch to remote mode allows players to negotiate the course with ease.
One particular challenge for golf trolleys in Austria is the dramatic terrain in which courses often sit. Kitzbühel Golf club is no different; set in the beautiful Alps with amazing scenery, it offers golfers some of the most idyllic playing conditions anywhere in the world.
When asked how the trolley coped with the hilly terrain, Martin Kerscher remarked: “Yes perfectly, it’s the little piece at the back of the trolley, the stabiliser which makes all the difference.”
CEO Mark Stewart said: “We are delighted to deliver this fleet to such a prestigious golf club. The premium nature of the X9 Follow means that it is not usually an option for most clubs to purchase a fleet, and even fewer to provide them free of charge to members.”
Due the popularity of the X9 Follow at Kitzbühel Golf Club, the fleet of X9 Follows looks set to grow in the near future to ensure they are always available for members to use.
