Golf car companies combine in local acquisition

Posted online

Ozark-based Clear Creek Golf Car and Vehicles LLC has acquired a local competitor.

The company announced in a news release yesterday that it purchased Ozark Golf Cars and Utility Vehicles. The deal closed Jan. 15 for undisclosed terms, said Trey Hathcock, marketing director for Clear Creek.

The acquisition brings Ozark Golf Cars owner Spencer King and team on board with Clear Creek. King has joined Clear Creek in a leadership role, and eight employees from Ozark Golf Cars have combined with the workforce of Clear Creek, which now employs 122, said Hathcock.

"Due to the success of both of our companies, it only made sense to merge with Clear Creek Golf Car,” King said in the release. "For years, we were direct competitors with Clear Creek, but their values are clear, and they are awesome, and that’s what excites me the most. I’m eager to see what the future holds."

Ozark Golf Cars, which was founded in 2005, in 2019 purchased King Karts in Clinton and sells E-Z-Go and Yamaha golf cars, along with the Cushman utility/industrial line.

"Spencer King built and ran a great business for nearly 20 years. He brings some great relationships, along with a lot of knowledge and experience, over to the Clear Creek family,” said Brian Cheever, CEO of Clear Creek, in the release. “The addition of the E-Z-Go and Cushman product lines is huge for Clear Creek, but we are equally excited that Spencer will be coming on board as a Clear Creek team member, as are his employees, who are also exceptionally good at what they do."

For Clear Creek, the Ozark Golf Cars deal is the fourth acquisition in three years, according to the release.

Clear Creek in September purchased Russellville, Arkansas-based Pappy’s Outdoors, according to past reporting. That followed recent purchases of Oklahoma City-based Justice Golf Car and a Club Car distributor in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Clear Creek now has 11 stores in three states, according to the release.
