Jacobsen and E-Z-GO Prescence at India Golf Expo

May 10, 2013

Ipswich, Suffolk, UK - April 29, 2013 - Jacobsen golf products and an E-Z-GO golf car were the centrepieces on a joint Jacobsen and E-Z-GO exhibition booth at the recent Golf Expo India held at the Oxford Golf & Country Club in Pune, India.

The event, located approximately 200 km southeast of Mumbai and150 km northeast of Goa, was held over three days and is supported by PGA India. Over 80 companies from across the golf industry were exhibiting products and services

The joint exhibition booth, in conjunction with local distributor Pro-Turf India, featured two walk-behind greens/tees mowers and an E-Z-GO RXV Freedom golf car and was the ideal opportunity to launch the new Jacobsen Super Certes, a cost-effective greens mower targeted at the golf clubs in the developing nations.

Also on display was the Jacobsen Eclipse 122F, one of the latest walk-behind mowers, packed with innovative features and a floating head cutting unit, which enables it to precisely follow undulating greens. The E-Z-GO RXV Freedom is a top spec golf car with the latest regenerative braking system and DC traction motor, providing more rounds per charge than any other electric golf car on today's market.

Scott Forrest, Ransomes Jacobsen's International Business Manager commented,
"This was an excellent show for us with around 200 visits to our booth. Among the many comments from visitors, the one that highlighted the importance of this territory was that it was "good to see Jacobsen back in the Indian market offering alternatives in both vehicles and machinery". The launch of the Super Certes was well received with over 40 requests for quotations from the army, smaller golf courses, cricket and tennis clubs. We will certainly have a larger presence next year."
