Yamaha Golf-Car Company Announces Participation in 2018 Golf Business TechCon

Kennesaw, Ga. (September 20, 2018) — Yamaha Golf-Car Company is proud to announce its participation as a presenting sponsor of the second Golf Business TechCon, being held October 11-12, 2018 at the ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, NV. Golf Business TechCon, hosted by the National Golf Course Owners Association, is the only event specifically designed around golf course technology—last year’s event sold out before the doors even opened. 

“This is our first visit to TechCon and we couldn’t be more excited to connect and collaborate with our peers in efforts to harness technology to enhance the player experience,” said Tom McDonald, Yamaha Golf-Car Company President. “We can’t wait to show what technology Yamaha has to offer, like our new YamaTrack® YTX™ fleet management system and much more!” 

"NGCOA appreciates the support and involvement of so many great companies in the golf industry,” said Jay Karen, Chief Executive Officer of NGCOA. “Our sponsors allow us to give our members and other industry professionals the best event experience, and we're grateful for those relationships."

With three tracks comprised of 25 educational sessions (including training and hands-on demonstrations), Golf Business TechCon puts golf course owners, operators and other industry professionals front and center with the latest tools, techniques and companies currently transforming golf course operations. Attendees can experience first-hand what Yamaha—the official golf car company of the NGCOA—has to offer at booth #1.

About Yamaha Golf-Car Company
The Yamaha Golf-Car Company builds from the 60-plus-year legacy of the Yamaha brand to manufacture the most innovatively engineered and highest quality golf, utility, and specialty vehicles in the golf industry—in Newnan, Georgia since 1985. Yamaha was the first to develop Electronic Fuel Injection technology in a golf car (producing the best gas mileage and smallest carbon footprint); the first golf car with fully independent, four-wheel suspension (producing the smoothest ride in the game); and the first gas-powered car that is almost as quiet as an electric one.
