SUBJECT
Title
Action on the Yamaha Motor Finance Corporation, U.S.A. Equipment Lease for Golf Carts for Santa Clara Golf & Tennis Club (SCG&TC)

Report
BACKGROUND
The current Municipal Master Lease Agreement, dated July 6, 2016, for eighty (80) electric golf carts used at the Santa Clara Golf & Tennis Club (SCG&TC) extends through the period indicated on the Exhibit A-Equipment Schedule, which refurbished vehicles are at the end of their expected life in August 2018. American Golf Corporation has received a proposal from Yamaha Motor Corporation to provide a new Exhibit A to the Master Lease Agreement to replace the refurbished eighty (80) YDRE & three (3) YT2A golf carts with a new fleet for a new annual lease cost of $64,320, and a total not-to-exceed amount of $257,280 over a four-year term beginning August 1, 2018.

DISCUSSION
The SCG&TC current golf cart fleet is six years old. Approving the lease agreement documentation will allow SCG&TC to provide a fleet of new golf carts for up to four years beginning August 1, 2018, at a favorable lease rate of 4.520%, with a lease close out option if SCG&TC course is closed after 12 months of execution date (August 2019). This will allow flexibility at the currently undetermined SCG&TC closing date and provide patron golf cart service.
