Despite living adrenaline filled lives in control of fast jets, all of the current Red Arrows pilots are keen golfers who take part in charity events throughout the year

British golf trolley manufacturer Stewart Golf has just announced a new sponsorship with the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows for 2018. Stewart Golf has provided each pilot with a handbuilt trolley, which will be used during the team’s many charity golf events.

In March, members of the Stewart Golf team made the journey to RAF Scampton, home of the Red Arrows to present the pilots with two red carbon fibre X9 Follow trolleys from the Signature Range and nine R1-S Push trolleys in the white and red colour combination. While at the base Stewart Golf were allowed full behind the scenes access and were even allowed to sit in on training flight briefings and critical analysis sessions.

Despite living adrenaline filled lives in control of fast jets, all of the current Red Arrows pilots are keen golfers who take part in charity events throughout the year. Two of the most enthusiastic golfers are Flight Lieutenant Mike Bowden (Red 9) and Flight Lieutenant Matt Masters (Red 8). As a result, they have taken responsibility of the two flagship Stewart Golf X9 Follow machines.

Flt Lt Bowden commented: “Stewart were in contact – it’s a British manufacturing company, of which we’re huge supporters – and as soon as we found out the X9 Follow was available in red we both agreed it would look fantastic parked in front of a jet.”

These two brands coming together may seem a little unorthodox, however, the similarities are there for all to see. The Red Arrows are quintessentially British and represent the best of British all across the world. Stewart Golf are much of the same principle as they design and handbuild all of their golf trolleys in Gloucestershire but the products are used across America, Australia and Asia.

Stewart Golf now join the esteemed sponsors of the Red Arrows and sit alongside other great British brands who operate across multiple sectors including luxury watches, vehicles and clothing.

Marketing Manager Luke Cummins stated: “Bringing these two organisations together took a fair bit of organisation and flexibility from both sides but it was definitely worth the wait. Watching how much the Red Arrows strive for perfection in their displays completely resonated with our company attitude towards customer service and product development. I must also admit the specially personalised Ping golf bags looked the business on our Signature X9 Follow machines...”
