Colorado Avid Golfer Player's Corner

That's How He Rolls

By Abbie Randel - August 9, 2018

This August Colorado Golf & Turf is celebrating 35 years as the Colorado Club Car Distributor. During this time Colorado Golf & Turf has received many Club Car distributor awards including the prestigious Black & Gold Elite partner every year since its inception in 2014. This award is only for select partners who successfully build the Club Car brand and reputation and exceed targets for growth. This has all been made possible by the committed and driven team at Colorado Golf & Turf and of course, by the leadership of the founder and current President, Tom Bauerle. This is a wonderful article about the history, dedication and integrity of CGT, published this month by Jon Rizzi at Colorado Avid Golfer.

Club Car’s Carryall® Utility Vehicles Win Rental Editor’s Choice Award


By Abbie Randel - November 7, 2016

Club Car’s Carryall® Utility Vehicles Win Rental Editor’s Choice Award
It’s great to earn recognition for your product line from a strategic market. And even better when the people who use the product play an important role in that recognition.
That’s the story for Club Car’s rental-ready Carryall® utility vehicles.
Rental, a nationally recognized magazine serving equipment rental professionals for 38 years, has selected the Carryall product line as a recipient of one of its 2016 Editor’s Choice Awards.
 
Audience engagement was important
The Rental editors use several factors in their award decision, including innovation and utility for the rental market. But audience engagement is equally important. The winning products received the most interest from end-users and rental professionals on the ForConstructioPros.com website over a 12-month period.
“Products chosen for this honor are those that construction professionals have shown active interest in, so it follows they’ll be looking for them at their preferred rental source,” said Jenny Lescohier, editor of Rental.
“This is an important recognition for our Carryall utility vehicles,” said Mary Sicard, Resorts & Rental marketing leader, “and an honor for the entire Club Car team.”

Strategic growth vertical
“Rental is one of our strategic growth verticals,” she said. “And one of our industrial rental companies is our largest customer.”
“That the recognition is linked to a construction-oriented website makes the award even more significant,” Mary continued. “One of our major competitors offers recreation vehicles to this market. Carryall utility vehicles are built for real work, and the interest shown by construction companies bears out the success the vehicles have enjoyed.”

Meeting the needs of rental houses and contractors
“We have worked very hard to create vehicles and support services that meet the demanding needs of rental houses and contractors,” said Jeff Miller, strategic accounts and custom solutions leader. “We are honored that a leading industry publication like Rental has recognized our success.”
Both the two-passenger Carryall 1500 and four-passenger Carryall 1700 utility vehicles are built on long-lasting rustproof aluminum frames. They are engineered for extreme conditions and for top-down serviceability. The products are backed by the industry’s only dedicated rental support team.

Why Use Distilled Water?

Deep Cycle Battery Maintenance

By Abbie Randel - July 27, 2016

There are several important steps to properly maintaining your deep cycle batteries. You obviously know they are a financial investment, so why not take proper care of them to get the most life as possible. All steps of battery maintenance are critical and none of them should be over looked. One of the simplest choices to make is using distilled water to fill your batteries.

The electrolyte in a flooded deep cycle battery is a solution of acid and water. Using distilled or deionized water is recommend because it is free from additional minerals you would find in water such as regular tap water. Adding chemicals and minerals can significantly decrease the life of batteries. Distilled water should be the only things you ever replenish in your deep cycle batteries. Never add additional acid or electrolyte solution, this can also diminish the battery life. Distilled water can be purchased at any grocery store and is very inexpensive. Here at Colorado Golf & Turf, we offer free distilled water - just bring your own container!  A clean squeezable sports water bottle works great or battery fill bottles can be purchased at a local auto parts store, or right here in our parts department.

Here are a few additional tips on battery maintenance.
1. Clean your Battery First
  • Alaways wear safety glasses and rubber gloves when working with batteries
  • Make sure the battery caps are on tightly
  • Use a solution of baking soda and water (1 cup baking soda per gallon of water)
  • Rinse solution off of battery terminals - do not allow this solution to enter the battery
2. Check the Electrolyte Level of Each Battery (every one to two weeks)
  • Batteries should always be filled AFTER a full charge, UNLESS they are 'dry' and the plates are exposed.  In that case, fill with just enough water to reach the top of the plates, this is considered the minimum level of water.
  • Once the batteries have a full charge, check and add water if needed
  • Only add water if necessary - the water level should be 1/8″ below the bottom of the fill well
.Fill the Batteries
  • Use only distilled water - for the reasons above.
  • Add water until the electrolyte level is 1/8″ below the bottom of the fill well
  • Do NOT overfill batteries. Overfilling batteries and then charging can cause the batteries to bubble over and spill the electrolyte solution. Not only is this messy, it can be harmful if this solution is not properly rinsed from the skin. 
4. Replace the Battery Caps
  • Clean up any spills around the battery cells
  • Be sure not to allow any additional debris to enter the battery
  • Replace the battery caps back onto the batteries


Battery Watering Systems or Single Point Watering Systems (SPWS) can also be purchased to simplify this process.  They are a series of tubes connected to each battery with a single pump which is placed into a container of distilled water and pumped into each battery simultaneously and will stop pumping when batteries are at the proper level above the plates.
