Country Music Legend George Strait
March 13, 2017
Country singer George Strait, known as the “King of Country” joins Garia luxury golf cars as a new brand ambassador. The singer drives a street-legal Garia Via, equipped with lithium batteries, which allows the Via to reach speeds of 25 miles per hour (40 km/h).
George Strait says of his Garia, “What I really really like about the Garia is that the interiors are so beautiful…very classic, and classy. From the steering wheel, to the beautiful leather seats.” The Garia Via offers luxury features such as sport seats, windshield, a refrigerator, and a champagne bucket. The singer adds that, “It’s a really fun car to drive.”
The Danish-made golf cars are not only known for their good looks, but for their performance as well. The cars feature double wishbone suspension, automotive grade glass, and a hill holder function that automatically engages the parking brake, which no doubt comes in hand in the Country singers Texas hill-country neighborhood, which boasts a top ranked golf course as well.
George Strait is no stranger to the world of golf. In 2011, the singer purchased Tapatio Springs Golf Resort and Conference Center, a 250-acre golf resort that lies 25 miles northwest of San Antonio, Texas together with a friend. As an avid golfer, it seems natural that the “King of Country” would drive a golf cart fit for a king.

For over a decade, golf carts have essentially been indistinguishable from one another, and paid little attention to the needs of the pro golfer. For a small group of Scandinavian designers, this realization became the stepping stone for the design of world’s most exclusive golf car, which would soon be known as the Garia.
Though innovation, research, and an unwavering passion for design, Garia has completely reimagined the traditional golf cart. Crafted from only the highest quality automotive materials, and through the most revolutionary design in the industry, Garia creates vehicles that perform even better than they look. Recognized as much for its functionality and usability as for its modern Scandinavian aesthetic, the Garia is not just your average golf cart. It’s a golf car.
Founded in 2005 by Anders Lynge and Søren Bak, Garia is a privately held company headquartered in Denmark, with a subsidiary in the U.S. and sales offices in UK and Asia Pacific.
