Boards Add New Twist to Golf (by Brett French)
I know it’s archery season and you’d rather read about big bulls and bucks, but if you have downtime and like to play golf, check out the latest thing in individual golf carts: the GolfBoard. These electric, four-wheel drive skateboard-like devices made an appearance this summer at Big Sky Resort’s Golf Course. The weird thing about them is to steer you lean, just like a skateboard, surfboard or snowboard. There’s a handle but it just holds the throttle, a cup holder, your clubs and gives the rider a place to hang on. The company making these is already expanding into outfitting these for resorts as well as the beach.
