Harris Golf Car Testimonials

Harris Golf Cars enjoys working with all our clients from individuals to golf courses, and that includes a few names you may recognize…Brett Favre, Bo Jackson, Bret Bielema, Kirk Ferenz, and Fred Hoiberg!

Palatine Hills Golf Course

Palatine, Illinois

Palatine Hills began using Yamaha golf cars in 2020. Our customers have been extremely happy with the look and performance of the cars. They often mention the console which has plenty of room for beverages, range finders and phones. Each side has a lined compartment and USB port. This feature makes it very convenient for each golfer to charge their devices.

When the cars need service, the Harris Golf Cars staff is quick to respond. Their mechanics are very professional. Prior to leaving they always ask if we have any other services needs.

The final piece to the puzzle is our Harris Golf Cars Sales Representative, Steve Olken. Throughout the process of getting our new cars, which was challenging due to Covid, Steve continually kept us up to date as to the status of our cars. Since then, he checks in frequently and is quick to respond to calls or emails.

I would recommend Yamaha Golf Cars and Harris Golf Cars for your golf course!

Wilmette Golf Club

Wilmette, Illinois

I am the General Manager at Wilmette Golf Club, a municipal facility in the Chicagoland Area. We purchased a fleet of 70 Electric Golf Cars in 2017 and were among the first in the area to have the Yamatrack GPS system. The service from Steve Olken, Bob Simmons and all of the staff at Harris has been exceptional. Any issues that we may have had were taken care of right away with little hassle.

The Yamatrack system is an excellent GPS system and a great value. Our golfers often describe our golf cars as fancy because of all of the features that they have. We also upgrade our beverage cart unit to a new Yamaha gas model. It has run without issue for two straight seasons.

When considering all of the factors that go into a purchase or lease of a new fleet of golf cars, you must consider the benefits and the affordability of the Yamaha Cars. The staff at Harris Golf Cars will make sure that you are taken care of and all of your questions are answered.

Prairie Bluff Golf Course

Crest Hill, Illinois

When our current lease on our fleet of golf cars was coming due at Prairie Bluff Golf Course, we decided to switch and actually purchase our next fleet of cars. We looked at all makes and models to determine which would be best for our needs. We decided on the 2021 Yamaha Drive 2 QuieTech EFI golf cars. Everybody that tested it loved the features, but it was the QuieTech technology that really sold the vehicle. There was barely any noticeable noise difference between this golf car and the electric cars that we had. The combination of the QuieTech technology and the greater trade-in/resale value of the gas cars made the choice an easy one.

Throughout the process Steve Olken was available to answer any questions that I or anyone at the park district had. Mr. Olken worked with us the entire time to get us the best deal, including getting us the best trade-in for our used electric cars.

Having 80 golf cars means that during peak times we usually have all of our cars our on the course at one time. If a golf car goes down, we need it to be repaired and Bob Simmons and his crew at Harris Golf Cars are always available to make sure that down time is kept to a minimum.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the Yamaha golf cars, Steve Olken and his team at Harris Golf Cars

The Village Links of Glen Ellyn

As the owner of its fleet of golf cars, The Village Links of Glen Ellyn has always performed a meticulous due diligence prior to selecting the best golf car for the facility. The 2017 YAMAHA Drive2 EFI Quietech Gas Golf car proved to be the obvious choice not only for its thoughtful features, but mostly for the Quietech technology. The difference in noise output is undisputable, and was immediately noticed by our Guests. We even had a few Guests compliment us on the decision to move to electric! We were actually considering moving to electric before we experienced Quietech. Given the relatively minute difference in noise output, and the elevated trade in value of gasoline cars, the choice was an easy one to make.

When you are required to deal with as many different vendors as a golf course operator does, you really appreciate those who are prompt, accurate, and reliable. Steve Olken and the crew at Harris Golf Cars have long been at or near the top of that list. Service is consistently delivered on time, and as promised. On the rare occasion there may be a delay, we are notified well in advance.

We often have our entire fleet on the course at the same time, so down time with cars is a big concern for us. Bob Simmons and his crew at Harris are very reactive, and get the job done right the first time. They work closely with our on course mechanic, and eagerly provide him with any information necessary to keep our fleet up and running.

I would, without hesitation, recommend you seriously consider the YAMAHA golf product and Harris Golf Cars.

Our relationship with Harris Golf Cars began in 2005, and it has been nothing but positive ever since. The Yamaha electric carts have been a great addition to the club. The classic look and design, along with the overall comfort level add to the experience at Conway Farms Golf Club.

Having worked with Scott Harris for ten years now, I can tell you he is an honest, trustworthy and fair business man. Anytime we are in a jam or need some help, he always lends a helping hand.
