Valley Golf Course Embraces Future with High-Tech Golf Cars 

by Lauren Vargas

Quintero Golf Club in Peoria has become one of the first courses in the country to implement a new fleet of state-of-the-art golf cars from Textron Fleet Management.

Each of the ninety vehicles is equipped with a touchscreen video monitor that allows players to track their GPS location on the map, place food orders delivered to the course, keep score, communicate with the golf shop, and more. Perhaps most importantly, it helps the crew keep track of the pace each golfer is playing.

“We have an app downloaded on our phones and computers, so we know where our players are at any moment. If a group is going slower than the pace of play, we get an instant alert and can send a team out to move things along,” says Mike Poe, general manager at Quintero Golf Club.

“There are so many advantages to these new golf cars for both the players and the crew, it was a really easy decision to make this switch.” Noting the vehicles operate on lithium batteries, which take a fraction of the time to fully charge and help preserve the environment, he adds, “It’s really an unbeatable energy saver.”

Quintero, ranked by Golf Digest among “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses” for the 2017 and 2018 seasons, was the highest-ranked course in Arizona on the list.
