Smørum Golfclub enters into a 10-year agreement with ECdrive on the establishment and operation of charging stations with Smørum Golfclub. Smørum Golfclub is Denmark’s largest golf club with around 160,000 rounds per year. This consists of approx. 30,000 of the rounds are played by guests from outside, while the remaining 130,000 rounds are played by Smørum Golfklub’s members.
At Smørum Golfclub, they focus on choosing the right sponsors for tournaments, but also when it comes to other forms of cooperation. Both sponsors and business partners must fit into Smørum Golfclub’s profile and concept. The golf club has set itself the goal of achieving the 17 world goals as the first golf club in Denmark before 2023 is over.
Therefore, the choice to establish ECdrive’s charging stations was ideal for Smørum Golf Club. The electric car market is gaining ground and only getting bigger, and Smørum Golf club would like to meet that:
“In the club, we have reached approx. 70% of all the points in the 17 world goals, and we are very proud of that. In addition, we are pleased to be able to offer our members and guests charging stands for electric cars from ECdrive. We hope that it can help inspire other golf clubs and associations as well as all the car owners out there to make a greener choice,” says Keld Østergaard Christensen, director at Smørum Golfclub.
Charging points for electric and plug-in hybrid cars in Smørum city
Members and guests of Smørum Golfklub can charge their electric cars while playing golf for 4 hours. And since many of the golf club’s guests come from Copenhagen, where charging stations for electric cars are in short supply, it is extremely beneficial to be able to charge your electric car when you take a round of golf anyway. In addition, locals have the opportunity to use the charging stations at Smørum Golfklub when the club is closed:
“Smørum Golf Club is the only location in the city of Smørum that offers charging stations for electric and plug-in hybrid cars. We are proud of that, because ECdrive’s charging stations can be used 24 hours a day, and thus we can help give something back to the city and utilize the efficiency,” says Keld Østergaard Christensen.
ECdrive is the ideal match for Smørum Golf Club
ECdrive’s charging stations are user-friendly, which is a big advantage for both members and guests. Keld Østergaard Christensen also adds that the choice fell on ECdrive’s charging stands, as ECdrive comes with a strong all-inclusive solution with servicing, setting up and ongoing maintenance of the stands for the next 10 years.
ECdrive starts by establishing charging stations in 8 parking spaces, but it is the expectation from both parties that there will be more charging stations at Smørum Golf Club in the future. Keld Østergaard Christensen makes it clear that if the need for charging stations for electric and plug-in hybrid cars increases over the next 10 years, the golf club is ready to scale up to 40 places with ECdrive’s charging stations.
