The History of Club Car

During his career, Robert V. Glaser had a role as part of a team responsible for making high-end investments, one of these investments being the American electric and gas-powered golf and UTV manufacturer Club Car.

Club Car was founded in 1958 in Houston, Texas before it was purchased by Bill Stevens, Jr., who would go on to move the company operations over to Augusta, Georgia shortly thereafter in 1962. To this day, Club Car’s primary headquarters remains in Augusta.

In 1978, Club Car was once again purchased, this time by an executive group from EZGO that sought to run its own business. It was during this time that Club Car would cement its status as a rival in the golf cart industry, thanks in part to the efforts of William Dolan, an EZGO co-founder.

Club Car yet again switched hands when it was acquired by Irish industrial manufacturing company Ingersoll Rand in 1995. The company would go on to merge with Bobcat, expanding its product line beyond golf carts into utility vehicles.

Today, Club Car has a worldwide distribution network which includes more than 600 distributors, dealers and factory branch locations.
