Stylish Autonomous Technology Delivers Fun and Fitness for Golfers
Club Car, a brand of Ingersoll Rand
AUGUSTA, GA (June 28, 2018) -- Club Car®, a global leader in golf and utility vehicles and a brand of Ingersoll Rand®, is launching Tempo Walk, a stylish new hands-free autonomous golf caddie unit that provides golfers with the enjoyment of walking the course, enhancing play and fostering health and wellness.
The new Tempo Walk offers state-of-the-art wireless technology including GPS yardage and hands-free remote control to maneuver easily around the course.
“Tempo Walk is the perfect blend of tradition and technology, bringing a new golf experience to the course; one that will excite golfers and provide a fun, healthy experience for 18 holes,” said Mark Wagner, president of Club Car. “The Tempo Walk further underscores our commitment to move the game of golf forward, particularly for the thousands of golf courses that attract a significant number of health-conscious walkers and are looking to generate a new revenue stream for their operation.”
Constructed with a durable aluminum frame, Tempo Walk contains a lithium ion battery which holds a 36-hole charge. It moves up to 7 mph and weighs 95 pounds. Additional technology features include a USB port and touchscreen tablet with GPS yardage. Traditional golf car offerings – a cup holder, cooler, divot repair and sand bottle, are also included. With a compact frame size, four Tempo Walk golf caddies can fit into the space of one golf car, another benefit for course operators.
“The Club Car Tempo Walk is a win-win. Golfers who enjoy walking the course get a caddie-like experience, and course operators get a fresh, functional and environmentally friendly cart option to offer customers,” said Susan Casagranda, the president of Torrey Pines Club Corp, one of the first courses to use Tempo Walk. “The Tempo Walk has resonated well with our golfers, and has given them a fun way to enjoy a round of golf.”
Tempo Walk complements Club Car’s award-winning Tempo Connect, 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.
