In the Spring of 1963, Bill and Bea Nadler (who at the time owned a Harley – Davidson motorcycle dealership) were given the opportunity to begin selling Harley-Davidson’s emerging New Line of Golf Cars. Bill, who loved all things mechanical took a chance and brought golf cars to the Fox River Valley and Nadler Harley-Davidson Sales was born. After two years of handling both motorcycles and golf cars Bill decided to strictly be in the golf car sales and leasing business. In 1967 their son Keith joined the company as a mechanic and soon after headed up the Parts and Service Department. With Keith’s dedication Nadler Harley-Davidson earned the reputation of having the finest service around.
Selling the original three-wheeled Harley-Davidson golf car, Bill traveled the Chicago area promoting the new concept of golf cars being used on a golf course while Bea stayed in the shop to handle day to day operations. During this time Bill established friendships that fostered loyal customers, many of whom continue to turn to Nadler Golf for their golf car needs today!
As time passed Bill and Bea’s son David joined the company in 1974 after graduating from Illinois State University. Eventually David became Sales Manager and his commitment to understand and meet the needs of his customers helped grow the business even more. In 1979 their daughter Karen, after several years of part time participation in the business, came on board full time as Office Manager to join her brothers.
In 1981, the second generation officially formed Nadler Golf Car Sales and established a partnership with Club Car, the leading manufacturer of motorized golf cars in the country. Nadler Golf Cars Sales not only successfully expanded their distribution of golf cars they also began selling and leasing utility and other transportation vehicles to both golf courses and private individuals.
As time passed, and two of the third generation had joined the team, it was again time to pass the reign. In 2013, Eric (David’s son) and Matt (Karen’s son) were ready to take the lead. Though the day of
Harley-Davidson has passed, the tradition of quality and service the Nadler Family established so many years ago has not. As a result, Nadler Golf continue to sell the finest golf car value in the Midwest.
