Yeah fair enough. We are agreed on the silly board thing though a2_wink.gif

Actually Phil is pretty good on a jet ski the stand up style so I would bet he could handle one of these things

Golfboard getting some love at the PGA Show! Ginella just did a piece on them.

This looks awesome, I would love to try this out. I enjoy the fact that you it keeps you active through the whole round. I don't see it as something that will replace the golf cart though. To much liability and unfamiliar users are at a higher risk of putting it in the drink.

 

Needless to say, I would definitely use it if it was affordable.

It really is kind of sad that with any new product that comes on the market (not just this one) the first thing that we all think of is how it won't work. Too much liability, going to cause injury. We never used to worry about these things as kids! If something looked cool we wanted to try it broken bones be damned! Too many lawsuits from too much spilled coffee has made life pretty boring these days. Nice to see some outside thinking on this product. Stop worrying about how it's going to hurt you.

golf courses will opt for the stand up bag holder with the stabalizing handle.  this gives the rider something to hang onto to aid in balance and steering

 

I see a future where golf designers along with a traditional course might have a 9 hole track that is part terrian park part golf course

I still think this is a horrible idea, especially with all the stupid driving people do in golf carts... The potential for injury with one of these is pretty high. Now, I do think it would be cool to buzz around the neighborhood on one of these though. However, for the price you guys are quoting it'll never happen, much more fun things I could spend that much on.

I'm not sure what's elitist about saying people should use the two legs they were given instead of sitting around on their arses all day as is the fashion these days.

 

The comments came off as elitist...big time. I golf for enjoyment and relaxation. If I want exercise, I'll run, box, or hit the gym...not walk 2.5 miles an hour.

Same, golf as exercise wouldn't do much for me. If I sweat it's a hot day not due to exertion. I suppose it depends on course design but I wear a pedometer, the difference between walking and riding where I play isn't as vast as it seems. Walking offers a straight line through the course. Getting in and out of the cart walking from paths to tees and greens doesn't. A walking day and a riding day for me is difference of 2500 hundred steps +/-. While that sounds huge it's not. If I walk around the block at work it's about 1800 steps.
