Club Car, the world’s leading manufacturer of golf cars and utility vehicles, embarked on an interesting adventure this summer. In partnership with Visit Wales, Club Car provided a vehicle to a Welshman and an American who travelled through 15 villages in Wales.

Kevin Hart, National Account Manager for Club Car, commented on the unique project “What a great idea! It’s original and really gets the message across to “visit Wales”. It was certainly something different for Club Car to be involved in and with the Ryder Cup coming to Celtic Manor in 2010, and our heavy involvement in the event, it seemed a great project to support”

The Club Car vehicle used for the journey was a homologated, road registered, Precedent Villager 4 electric. Based on the sleek new styling of the Precedent golf car, the Villager 4 offers a smooth ride, agile steering and room for 4 people. Inspired by the Precedent golf car, the electric Villager 4 is equipped with a fresh, new design, SportDrive technology and the IQ System, which offers programmable speed and brake options. The Villager 4 combines style and performance to provide the most efficient, environmentally friendly and comfortable ride on the market. This particular vehicle was loaned from De Vere Slaley Hall, near Newcastle on Tyne, where they have 37 in operation.

A Cart Across Wales is part of an advertising campaign for Visit Wales to increase tourism to the country. Cody Bonham, Account Executive for TEQUILA, Visit Wales, the creative agency behind the project, commented “When visit Wales approached us looking for an idea that was a bit different we set to work coming up with a number of ideas and finally decided on ‘A Cart Across Wales’. I think it is definitely a fun and unique idea and we owe huge thanks to Club Car for making it possible”
