Intermountain Golf Car History Began in 1983 with Ray Homer
In 1983 Ray Homer went to work for a major golf cart Distributorship focusing on golf cart sales, service, and rentals in the Salt Lake Valley. He worked as a mechanic in the service department. Ray became skilled in the fundamentals of the golf car industry and also developed important relationships in the golf community.
In 1985, Ray started his own golf cart dealership and Ray’s Golf Cars was born. Initially, his new company dealt only in used golf carts. At that time where no new golf car dealerships were available as all three of the major U.S. golf cart manufacturers already had dealerships in Utah. But eventually the Club Car distributor for Utah closed their doors for business, providing a great opportunity for Ray. After meeting with Club Car, a deal was struck and Ray’s Golf Cars became Utah’s factory authorized Club Car distributor.
Ray succeeded in operating his own new golf vehicle distributorship and has presided over that company.
We observed IGC grow from a small one-man operation to a thriving regional business.
From a One-man Start-up to Five Dealerships in Three States
Over the past 37+ years that small start-up company has experienced outstanding growth. In 1992, the company’s name was changed from Ray’s Golf Cars (a partnership) to Intermountain Golf Cars, Inc. (a corporation).
IGC currently employs over 60 employees who manage and carry out it’s daily business operations. IGC has sales and service facilities in Sandy and St. George Utah; Idaho Falls (Chubbuck) Idaho, and Mesquite and Las Vegas, Nevada. Nearly half of the company’s employees are trained golf car technicians. Intermountain Golf Cars, Inc., operates five locations and a service van throughout the Intermountain region.
Success Builds Upon Success
Today, Ray Homer continues to direct the company as President. Drew Homer serves as Vice President and General Manager.
In 2003, IGC relocated it operations and corporate headquarters from Murray to Sandy, Utah.
“From the beginning, we at IGC have worked hard to develop expertise in the sales, service, and golf cart rentals and related functions, such as selling parts and accessories, and customizing golf and utility carts, compact vehicles, and other related transportation items” said Ray Homer.
In the early 1990’s, IGC served as regional management for a national golf car fleet management company know as Golf Car Systems. This company purchased and subleased golf cars to municipal and private golf courses. This system is very comprehensive and includes an extensive maintenance and service program for maintaining a quality fleet.
