Yamaha Golf-Car Company reports that it has been chosen as the golf car provider to Greensboro National Golf Club in Summerfield, N.C., according to company president Tom McDonald.
Yamaha installed 82 of its newly-released Drive2 electric fleet golf cars – equipped with the innovative YamaTrack GPS system – plus beverage units, a multi-passenger car and utility vehicles as part of the agreement.
According to McDonald, “Yamaha and Greensboro National share the common priority of providing golfers with the ultimate comfort and convenience during their round, while offering the latest in golf car technology, and we are very grateful for the opportunity to partner with this wonderful facility.”
Opened in 1995, Greensboro National Golf Club meanders over 225 acres of rolling Carolina terrain dotted by 300-year old oak trees and 50 acres of lakes and ponds. The club is known for its uncompromising customer service, superior course conditions, pure bent grass greens and first-class food and beverage options.
Amenities abound at Greensboro National, including a multi-purpose clubhouse, bar and grill, large driving range, swimming pool and the prestigious Rick Murphy Golf Academy. There are also a variety of club membership opportunities and residential offerings that feature acre-plus home sites within a 355-acre subdivision with outstanding views.
Greensboro National owner, Herbert B. Parks, factually stated that, “Partnering with Yamaha is the 2nd best decision we have ever made here at Greensboro National. The first was when we bought the course!”
The Yamaha Drive2 golf cars installed at Greensboro National are equipped with the YamaTrack GPS high-resolution touch screen system which provides the golfer with vivid hole diagrams and fly-overs, precise golf course yardages, advertising, tournament scoring, two-way messaging with the golf shop and food & beverage ordering. The Drive2 cars also come equipped with dual USB ports for increased golfer connectivity, function and flexibility.
YamaTrack is a cloud-based fleet management utility that allows the course to monitor pace-of-play, ensure proper fleet rotation and security, and even set geofences to control golf car traffic around greens complexes, rain-soaked turf or any eco-sensitive areas. In addition to the on-car benefits and fleet management utilities, YamaTrack offers integrated software programs that support a variety of golf course operations, including tee-time reservations, food & beverage management, inventory control and customer profile information.
In order to maximize YamaTrack’s performance on their Yamaha fleet, Greensboro National installed a dedicated Wi-Fi network setup, a special router in the cart barn that can handle up to 100 connections and new fiber optic high-speed data running to all of the above.
