ORLANDO, FL (January 22, 2018) -- Club Car®, a global leader in golf and utility vehicles and a brand of Ingersoll Rand®, is launching Tempo Connect, a stylish new golf car with enhanced technology and new entertainment at the Club Car Booth #2928 at the 2018 PGA Merchandise Show on Jan. 24 - 26, 2018.

The new Tempo Connect is designed with automotive styling and connected technology for an enhanced ride and experience. Club Car’s proven engineering, industry-leading durability and reliable comfort are evident with a new sleek front cowl, rust-proof aluminum frame, new alloy wheels, premium comfort seats and a spacious dashboard.

Club Car launched its new Tempo and Tempo 4Fun vehicles, as well as Tempo Connect system, at 2018 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, FL

The Tempo Connect is the first golf car that includes both Visage Fleet Management, an industry-leading connectivity platform for golf operators to simplify operations, control costs and maximize course efficiencies; and Shark Experience, the premier in-car course entertainment system exclusive to Club Car. 

“The Tempo Connect delivers unprecedented connectivity, content and customization to the course, all in an effort to move the game of golf forward, said Mark Wagner, president of Club Car. “This is a milestone year for Club Car as we celebrate 60 years in the industry. We are pushing the limits of our offerings beyond the car by integrating new technology and entertainment that adds value to the consumer, and fleet managers to improve their operations.”

About Tempo Connect

Tempo Connect includes a standard built-in, high-definition touchscreen display and built-in speakers with Bluetooth connectivity that includes an electronic scorecard, 3D flyovers, hole overviews and a rangefinder as well as GPS Zone messaging system and much more.   

Tempo Connect features Visage Fleet Management with integrated car and course controls for golf course operators and their staff to monitor fleet performance from anywhere. Golf course operators can track their entire fleet and even spot slow groups before they affect pace of play. Plus, Visage Fleet Management can prevent cars from driving on tees and greens to reduce maintenance cost and time.

It also features Shark Experience, which in partnership with Greg Norman Company and Verizon allows Club Car to deliver, the premier in-car course entertainment system, exclusive to the new Tempo Connect golf car. Shark Experience engages golfers in a modern, fun and social way so they can enjoy live sports, music, Greg Norman golf tips, dynamic yardage information and more for an all-in-one entertainment experience.
