La Quinta Golf & Country Club, situated just outside Marbella on Spain's Costa del Sol, has taken delivery of 80 RXV golf cars from Green Mowers, the E-Z-GO distributor located in Burgos in the north of the country.
La Quinta's 27 holes of magnificent golf were designed by Manolo Pinero and lie in a fertile valley bordered by the Sierra Blanc mountains and the Mediterranean Sea. There are three nine-hole courses, San Pedro, Ronda and the latest addition, Guadaiza, which allow alternative combinations of 18 holes to be played.
Back in January this year Troon Golf were appointed to manage the 20-year old La Quinta resort with Scott Evans appointed to the role of Director General, Antonio Pineda as the golf course superintendent and former Financial Controller Jose Luis Gomez assuming the role of Club Manager.
During the recent handover of the buggy fleet Jose Luis Gomez commented,"We are determined to provide the absolute best playing conditions on the Costa del Sol here at La Quinta and following consultations with Troon Golf, we have agreed a four-year renovation plan for the courses, which includes overhauling our irrigation system, upgrading all of our machinery and investing in the quality of the courses.
"We have in excess of 55,000 rounds a year and encourage the golfers to use golf cars, whenever possible. This speeds up play and actually creates less compaction than footfall, which is good for the course.
"As part of our drive for quality we have recently invested in a new fleet of golf cars, 80 in total, which are the very latest electric RXV models from E-Z-GO. They were supplied by Green Mowers, who have a service depot close by and their support has been first class; one of their representatives visits every two days to ensure that we have no issues. We also purchased a Refresher vehicle for the convenience of the golfers when playing the course.
"The carts are superb, especially the innovative braking system and the automatic battery filling, which reduces daily maintenance checks. Overall they are very good golf cars, competitively priced and ideal for contributing to the quality image at La Quinta."
