My traveling group recently played at The Club at Savannah Harbor. Beautiful course with some really impressive views. To our surprise, the course had golf boards available for rent. I was skeptical at first, but decided to give it a go, and was really glad I did. It added excitement to the round and was really neat. For reference, I'm 5'5 and the tallest guy in our group rode one as well, and he's 6'5ish.

For those of you that have tried one, what did you think?

I got to try them at the 2016 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando.

Speed ranges from 7 to 14 MPH, and steering is intuitive - (a basic steering column augmented with body lean). It works, and it's fun. Of course, walkers would get a better sense of the day's turf profile, but GB gives you a lot better feel than a riding cart.

Golf Boards deliver several benefits to the 100 or so courses that use them:
  • Cost roughly same ($6,500) as a traditional two-person cart, but requires much less maintenance.
  • Vehicle Weight (empty): GB =  125 lbs. // riding cart = 950 lbs.
  • Do much less damage to turf than heavier two-person carts
    • Wide tires disperse weight of already lighter vehicle
    • Less need for secondary cart paths along holes
    • Less restrictive fairway only rules for GB helps speed play
  • Allow foursomes of skilled riders (not necessarily top golfers) to traverse 18 holes in 2 hours, 15 minutes.
  • Have been associated with spikes in 9-hole play in late afternoons.
From a business standpoint, non-golfers have found numerous additional uses. Golf Boards also get bought as utility carts for maintenance and logistics workers, and as a more-stable alternative to Segways.

Me and my son played a round on one in Florida this summer. We both loved it. They told us we could drive up next to the greens which made golfing easy. It was slow that day for a two some and the golf boards made the day a blast. We just rode around and cut up. Loved riding the edges of bunkers and side hills. Wish they had one close to us, I will play a course just to ride them now. My son wanted us to get one for home. Only negative for me is the battery life, both were running low with several holes left. We had rode around a lot extra though.

A few of us have used them at Boyne Highlands the last two years. Totally worth the $30 upcharge-they are a blast. Waiting for groups in front of you is spent riding all around.

I played a round in Tremblant Quebec (downhill ski area) with one.  It is a great idea, maybe not for a course with lots of steep elevation changes!
It was a bit of an adventure going up some of the hills, had to bail our on a couple of them; C of G was way too high.  On the flat fairways - tons of fun.
If you are a snow boarding fan, you will love it.

  That's what it's all about right?   "We just rode around and cut up. Loved riding the edges of bunkers and side hills." Not really playing golf, just cutting up, what a joke and a determent to the game.

Thanks for sharing. Of course your not really on topic, but thanks. My country club looked at them and decided they didn't want them, if you feel the same make sure your country club doesn't get them either.

As for the places that have them I think it's a great way to expand the game. My son doesn't play golf, so I paid around $80 just for him to ride around. I think the course was glad to get the extra $80.

This looks like a way to change it up. I have yet been to a course that had these. But I would absolutely rent them.

Yeah!  Bah Humbug!  I can't stand the thought of having something that might increase the pleasure of the game of golf for someone.  

I tried a golfboard for the first time last season.  The course is extremely hilly with very long walks between holes.  I normally walk most courses, but I would have to think twice on walking that course.  The golfboard was a ton of fun.  I used to skate and snowboard and it was extremely easy to get used to the board.  The golfer in our group that didn't have boardsports experience caught on very quickly and was zipping around the 'practice area' after a few minutes.  The battery life was great for us and it made the round even more enjoyable and definitely more memorable.  I'd definitely ride a golf board in lieu of a cart anytime.  (That being said I will continue to walk whenever feasible. )

A few courses here in Atlanta have tried them.  None of them still have them in inventory and I think I know why.  To say these things are 'challenging' to use might be the understatement of the year.  I was a multi-sport athlete and at 41 years old I'm still in the gym 5-6 days per week.  I found them incredibly difficult to use.  Now I will say, part of the problem is that courses in Georgia are extremely hilly.  If you were on flat surfaces like Florida or the Midwest my opinion may change some.

I spoke to the pro at a course that tried them recently.  He said they got a nice bump in rounds because people were eager to try them......ONCE.  Very few people tried again.  And the maintenance on them was crazy because people were constantly hitting curbs and trees.  Hate to sound so negative because I really liked the idea.  But there is no way I would pay to try again.  I like my cart just fine and its not nearly as much work.

I took the term 'cut up' to mean something like carving, like you do on a snowboard.  Just the process of turning.  I didn't take it to mean actually damaging the turf.  It sounds like we have different interpretations of how the golf boards were used in his instance.

Golf boards should have significantly less wear to the turf than a golf cart would, so even if someone was going around in circles i don't see it damaging the turf.  I know that I didn't always take the most direct route to my ball because i enjoyed riding the board, and I even rode in circles a few times because it was fun.  I never saw any imprints or wear from going in circles.  Even with my extracurricular activities we finished in 3.5 hours on a long course.  (I just want to make sure that no one thinks i was slowing down pace of play.)  That being said i definitely didn't take the golfboard too close to the greens, bunkers, or any other 'delicate' areas.  I had pretty good control but nothing where I'd push my luck.  The course I played didn't have any adjoining fairways to be a distraction, but I'm aware enough of my surroundings to know the right time to screw around and the wrong time.  I'd say that anyone who would be reckless or distracting on a golf board would probably be reckless or distracting in a golf cart as well.

That's part of the selling point of the golfboards, they don't tear up the course like a golf cart does. This is the reason some courses, like the one I was at, let you ride up to the collar of the greens. The weight of the boards is much less than a golf cart. Plus you only have one passenger instead of two. Maybe you should check out there website and find out the full benefits. The course we were at like many other courses around the country is looking for ways to attract golfers to keep it open. For us, that's what it was. This is not normally a course I play when in that area but I did because of the golf board.
If the course is crazy busy and full of 4 somes we would have probably had a different experience. In our case, we were a 2 some in behind a couple of 4's. Normally we would have been itching to go thru, but with the golf board we just enjoyed our time out.
You can play crazy fast on these. Drive up to the ball then up to the green, can't wait to try it again.

Tried one in San Antonio last year and loved it.  The learning curve was about 2 holes, and after that, I was flying.

It was fun for about 9 holes. Then I got bored of it. They need to be faster.
We figured out the more vodka you pour down your neck the more fun they got. But I donít think I would do it again.

i have taken them out a couple of times and they are fun but clearly not widely adopted. I think they do help to speed up play (or at least provide entertainment when the course is backed up). Would I take them out with my buddies if the course we are playing that day offered them-yes. Do I expect my Club will start using them-0% chance.

We had them at the course I used to work at and I don’t recall any of our low cappers having a good round on them myself included (humble brag indeed.) Not to say they weren’t fun or useful in getting 18 holes in teeing off at 7 I’m the summer. They were just too much work to move around to play well for us.

They are fun, but they are annoying as they dont have adequate space for drinks and such.

Rented one at Aspen Lakes in central oregon in 2014. Tons of fun. Convenience of riding with focus of walking. 1525387840876.jpg

I played Gamble Sands a few weeks and rode one.  I got a kick out of it big time.  Would definitely ride one again.

Question, are most courses ok with you pulling up with that thing? I would imagine a lot around here would not for liability reasons. Iíve always wanted to try one haha

Forever Changing at this point.......

I was at a course earlier this year and a person had their golf board on a platform attached to a trailer hitch.  It reminded me of the platforms that elderly people use for their Rascals.
