Pestovo Golf and Yacht Club, situated 28 km from Moscow, has recently upgraded its fleet of golf cars, with the delivery of 25 E-Z-GO RXV buggies by local E-Z-GO distributor Golf Technology.
These new state-of-the-art people movers replace the former fleet of 20 E-Z-GO TXT vehicles, which have been at the prestigious golf club since it opened in 2007.
Pestovo is a new and unique concept to Russia featuring an 18-hole championship golf course, a golf academy, sumptuous clubhouse, one- and two-bedroom residential apartments, a yacht club on the banks of the Pestovskoye reservoir and extensive recreational facilities.
The course was designed by David and Paul Thomas and constructed by the Russia-based Protcion company, a US$ multi-million development company, which constructed the Forest Hills Golf Club, also situated on the outskirts of Moscow.
Speaking at the handover of the equipment, Boris Shumskiy, Deputy Chief Director at Pestovo said: "We liked the old TXT's a lot, but the golfers are very happy with these new RXV golf cars. We will also be using E-Z-GO for our municipal and greenkeeping services around the estate."
Vladimir Potapov, Import Manager for Golf Technology added: "Our client is obviously delighted with these new golf cars. The old TXT's have served the club very well, but the new fleet features the latest design technologies making them more efficient and more cost-effective to operate."
Golf Technology are also the Russian distributors for Ransomes Jacobsen products and this year delivered a Jacobsen AR522 articulated rotary mower to the club.
