Bubba and his hover cart!

The small, recreational hovercraft that I've seen are LOUD. Unless they find a way to quiet them up a lot, I don't think it'll catch on.
Gotta be a lot of fun to goof around on, but then, we have enough goofballs driving carts like maniacs as it is. Now let's turn them all loose in the hazards and on the greens and hope for the best? Don't think so....
I could see Trump or some other Billionaire, with stacks of bills laying around buying one, and using it on their own course. But highly doubt this could ever become manufacturable; cost effective enough to make sense within a production environment.
In order to be successful, they would need to make/sell these for a slight premium over the existing club cars. Basically they would need to get this hover cart in the sub $20K range... Closer to $12K to make sense. And I find that to be a difficult task, and one that is highly unlikely.
lol I can see the drunks flying through sand traps with this thing, creating sand storms and messes all over the course. Also doing donuts in any/every pond would be pretty annoying. I'll be damned if I'm setting up on the other side of a hazard if I have to hear a hover craft on the lake behind me while the guys are waiting for me to play my shot so they can cross the lake.
Hilarious idea, but it will never be mainstream.
