 Goldie’s 2015 Wish List


For the golfer in your life that has everything, I mean absolutely everything, how ‘bout surfing the greens with the GolfBoard?    

In 2008 Professional surfer Laird Hamilton teamed up with friend Don Wildman (Founder, Bally Total Fitness) and together along with their team of designers and years of research brought this innovative and super fun alternative to the golf cart to market, launching at the 2014 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando.

The GolfBoard is electric with a solid four-wheel base and stabilizing handle extending upward from the nose.  Top speed is 12 mph and is controlled by holding your thumb to the throttle and shifting your weight from side to side.  Once acclimated to the GolfBoard, riders feel the undulations and contours of the course itself as they traverse the terrain, wind whipping through their hair, not to mention attaining a fab core workout in the process and a Zen state of mind as they carve across the greens .

Seen as a solution to speeding up the pace of play, GolfBoard’s target audience are the “millennial” golfers ages 18 to 30.  Several large golf management companies such as Troon Golf and Billy Casper Golf are offering use of Golfboard at their Resorts and facilities throughout the USA.  GolfBoard can be found locally on Cape Cod at Falmouth Country Club ~ a Billy Casper Golf facility.
