North Carolina Golf Course Owner Relies On U.S. Battery Products To Keep His Golf Car Fleet Running Longer

When you own and operate a golf course, managing your overall operating expenses becomes a big priority. This is the case for Dennis Watkins, general manager and owner of the Lakewood Golf Club in Statesville, North Carolina.

Watkins has been in the golf course business for more than 40 years and knows that a large part of any course’s operating expenses goes into maintaining and operating a fleet of golf cars. “The batteries we use in our golf car fleet are my life-blood, so I use U.S. Battery US2200 six-volt batteries because they outperform any other brand of I’ve tried in my 40-years in this business,” says Watkins.

As the golf course’s owner and operator Watkins works hard to get as much use out of his fleet of 70 golf cars, which in turn helps lower his overall operating costs. “I make sure that the water levels are above the battery cell plates and I maintain a strict maintenance schedule,” says Watkins. “Compared to other brands, I can consistently get four seasons out of U.S. Battery products before they need to be replaced.”

“I’ve used other competitive brands that cost the same, but the failure rate always left me stuck with unusable batteries. Some have only worked for 24 months. In my experience, U.S. Battery’s US2200-XC2 deep-cycle batteries give me the most value of what I expect to get out of my golf car fleet.”

U.S. Battery’s US2200-XC2 is the company’s most popular six-volt deep-cycle flooded lead-acid battery for the golf car industry. With its exclusive XC2™ formulation and Diamond Plate Technology® the US2200-XC2 has the highest initial capacity, the highest rated capacity, and the ability to reach peak capacity in fewer cycles, than any other battery in its class. Aside from its performance, the US2200-XC2 batteries also feature extra heavy-duty connector lugs, a tough polypropylene exterior case, and the company’s positive locking SpeedCap® venting system for easy maintenance and durability in a variety of conditions.
