A growing number of top clubs and resorts are signing up for the excellent electric trolley rental fleet programme offered by PowerBug, one of Europe’s leading golf trolley manufacturers and the only one to offer a five-year product warranty.
Windsor-based PowerBug has grown into a major player within the electric golf trolley market in a very short space of time, with its rapid ascendancy in little over a decade all down to innovative designs, rugged build quality, excellent customer support and an industry-leading five-year warranty.
Another area PowerBug has pinpointed as a real growth opportunity is the rental fleet market, with the company’s excellent rental scheme effectively providing the ideal opportunity for stockists to offer a ‘try before you buy’ programme and get PowerBug’s increasingly popular electric trolleys in front of a wider golfing audience. The brand is quickly gaining market share here, with Whitefield Golf Club’s rental fleet of 45 PowerBug Pro-Tour Mini Lithium trolleys earning glowing feedback from both members and staff. Now members and guests at The Berkshire can try out PowerBug trolleys over the club’s two prestigious Top 100 courses, while the highly regarded Vale Resort in South Wales is giving golfers the chance to put a PowerBug through its paces over the longest golf course in Wales. Greenmeadow Golf & Country Club in Cwmbran is another Welsh club to sign up to a rental scheme that allows potential customers to experience the benefits of a high-quality trolley for themselves. The brand also offers a generous ‘Buy-Back’ scheme to ensure that clubs are able to keep their rental fleets right up to date, to the benefit of all parties.
The news of further success in the rental fleet market comes hot on the heels of other developments and investments that underline PowerBug’s determination to further strengthen its position in the electric trolley market. Distribution channels have been broadened out to include more retail partners than ever; the website has been revamped to make it as user-friendly and informative as possible; and the company has recently appointed Steve Harden to the role of Sales Director. Harden brings 18 years of golf industry experience to the brand having worked as a PGA Professional at Bearwood Lakes, East Berkshire Golf Club and Pinheiros Altos and more recently as owner and operator of golftrolleyshop.com, the largest independent golf trolley retailer in the UK. “I am fortunate to have worked with all the leading trolley brands during the last six years running golftrolleyshop.com and can safely say that the proposition PowerBug has to offer is second to none,” Harden enthuses.
With such commitment to progress and an industry-leading 5-year limited warranty on all its electric trolleys and lithium batteries, it is easy to understand why PowerBug is quickly becoming golf’s ‘go to’ electric trolley brand.
