  24th PGA CUP POWERED BY PGA PARTNER CLUB CAR
               Fleet of 32 Club Cars in operation at The Carrick on Loch Lomond
Club Car, the world’s leading supplier of golf cars and utility vehicles, is supplying a fleet of 32
vehicles for the 24th PGA Cup at The Carrick on Loch Lomond which takes place from 18-20
September 2009. The versatility of the range has allowed everyone from the TV and media,
tournament officials, health and safety officers, PGA VIP’s and of course, the team captains, to benefit
from the comfort, durability and ruggedness of Club Cars vehicles.

Club Car has enjoyed a long association with the PGA, which has a rich heritage in supporting events
such as the Ryder Cup, Solheim Cup and PGA Cup, as well as numerous PGA National and Regional
tournaments across the UK.

Simon Higgingbottom, Tournament Director for the PGA Cup, commented, “Club Car’s support is
vital for high profile events such as these where every aspect of the tournament has to run like
clockwork. The Club Cars will be clocking up some serious mileage over the next few days!”

Kevin Hart, Business Development Manager for Club Car UK, added, “We are delighted to once
again lend our support to such a prestigious event. The PGA is staging a world class event at The
Carrick and it is a privilege to see our cars in operation, especially the legendary Captain’s Car.”

Captain of the U.S. PGA Cup Team, Brian Whitcomb, has also been made to feel very much at home
on the banks of Loch Lomond, commenting that, “I am a Club Car guy at home so this feels great.”
Brian is the PGA Professional at Lost Tracks Golf Club, Bend, Oregon.

Gary Allis, will also feel comfortable in his Captains Club Car; his home club, the Belfry, also
benefits from a large fleet of Club Cars. Alliss captains Team GB&I for the second time at The
Carrick and knows the importance of being able to watch a variety of matches across the course, “As
Captain it is imperative I know what is happening in all of the matches so the Captain’s car is a vital
member of the team. I need to be close to the action and get a feel for how certain players are handling
the situation and what their form is like.”
