SURF THE EARTH ON THE GOLFBOARD

The most innovative invention for golf since the graphite shaft, the GolfBoard is forever changing the way golfers experience the game. Powered by an environmentally friendly lithuim-ion battery, the GolfBoard is an easy-to-ride vehicle that adds a new level fun and excitement for golfers of all ages, allowing golfers to ‘Surf the Earth’ in a way that feels similar to snowboarding, surfing, or skateboarding.


MAINTAINS THE TRADITIONS OF THE GAME
Golfing with a GolfBoard, or ‘GolfBoarding’ as we like to call it, changes the golfing experience, without changing the spirit and traditions of the game—we strongly feel the GolfBoard will help bring more interest to golf and as a result increase the number of passionate players to the sport. 


FAREWELL TO THE 5 HOUR ROUNDS
The GolfBoard dramatically increases the pace-of-play. After conducting extensive time trials—the average round on the GolfBoard is 2:37! 

Making it possible to play 36 holes in 5 hours.

PRODUCT DETAILS


GolfBoard: Product Details

The GolfBoard has never-before-seen features on electric skateboards including:

4 Wheel Posi Traction

The GolfBoard is driven by gear boxes front and back, rather than unreliable chains and belts. This never before seen feature on a board insures safety, reliability and low to no maintenance.

Drivetrain

The GolfBoard uses a 4 wheel drive posi-traction drivetrain. Housed on each end of the board are industrial grade gear boxes which provide power to all 4 wheels reliably and evenly. This never before seen feature of a powered golf device insures safety, smooth operation, and nearly zero maintenance requirements. Four-wheel-drive traction is guaranteed to provide solid transport even on the steepest hills. Turf professionals embrace the GolfBoard based on its low impact on the turf, as compared to regular golf carts.

Intuitive Control

The GolfBoard is controlled using either an ergonomically designed thumb throttle or wireless handheld remote, which allow the user to smoothly accelerate and decelerate, reverse direction, and power the GolfBoard on and off. The controllers feature an intelligent LED meter, providing details of when the GolfBoard battery needs to be recharged. They are specially designed to allow for intuitive, gentle and smooth acceleration and braking.

 

4" Turf Tires 

The GolfBoard utilizes tires specifically made for turf use. Produced by the world’s leading manufacturer of turf equipment tires, GolfBoard’s ‘gentle-on-the-turf’ 4x11 tires provide stability, no-spin traction, and ground clearance perfectly suited for Surfing the Earth. With their reduced surface area and minimal tread design, there is substantially less impact and pressure on the turf than a fully loaded golf cart.

Powertrain

The GolfBoard uses the highest quality industrial grade electric motors, drives, and on-board intelligent equipment to ensure complete reliability and long life. Built to handle high-power industrial applications, the motor controller on the GolfBoard provides the utmost in reliability. We’ve designed custom controller firmware to ensure ultimate control for each GolfBoard. As an added safety feature, the controller will automatically lock the GolfBoard’s wheels when you come to a stop. This provides you a stable structure to step off of, and won’t allow the GolfBoard to roll away if you come to a stop on a steep hill to play a tricky sidehill shot!

GolfBoard riders have the ability to select either ‘high speed’ or ‘low speed’ modes of operation. Low speed is a gentle 5 mph for the Commercial Use Board, with a maximum speed of 10 mph. This Board provides new users the ability to practice turning and operating the board with security and confidence. The Personal Use Board has a low speed of 7 mph with a high speed maximum of 14 mph.

Ride Quality and Handling

The GolfBoard is the only board available with our proprietary "Spring Deck.” By utilizing a flexible and adjustable spring plate on each end, the GolfBoard is the first powered board with a highly effective shock absorber, allowing for an extremely smooth ride.

The Spring Deck gives the GolfBoard amazing suspension and flex, while still allowing for a secure and rigid mounting location for the lithium battery and industrial control electronics.

Design to have the lowest possible center of gravity, the GolfBoard is extremely stable and provides a truly surf like experience. One of the most innovative features of our board is a suspension system that can be quickly and easily adjusted to the preference and weigh of each rider. The low center of gravity allows beginners to step on the board with confidence and enjoy balance and stability like a pro. The adjustable suspension allows the GolfBoard to be tuned for each individual’s size or riding style.

 

 

Batteries

Power for the GolfBoard is provided by the same lithium batteries found in the latest luxury electric automobiles. Manufactured by a world leader in intelligent lithium battery design, the GolfBoard’s battery is at the leading edge of lightweight, long lasting and safe lithium battery technology. Providing ample power for regular golf course use, the GolfBoard’s battery also allows for fast recharging times between rounds.

In contrast, lead acid batteries in regular golf carts require tedious maintenance and full replacement after only 2-3 years. The GolfBoard’s battery is completely contained, requires zero maintenance, and lasts far longer than their lead-acid counterparts.

The GolfBoard can travel well over 18 holes between charges. Depending on conditions, such as rider weight, turf conditions and grade, a GolfBoard can go up to 18+ miles on a single charge. The battery powerhouse is designed to give users confidence and is sized to carry a heavy rider (250+ pounds) over 18+ holes on some of the longest and steepest courses in the world.

The GolfBoard is Easy on Your Turf

Every golfer loves playing on turf that is healthy and beautifully manicured. Day in and day out Golf Course Superintendents everywhere do battle with the forces that try to undermine their ability to produce these desired pristine playing conditions. Turf disease, insects, inclement weather all wreak havoc on thriving grass plants that make up the golfer’s playground.

Ironically, it’s the action of the golfers themselves that frequently causes the most amount of turf damage. Foot traffic, golf cart wear injury, and un-repaired divots and ballmarks are all forms of golf course injury caused by players.

Out of strict concern for minimizing turf injury, the GolfBoard has been engineered to make the smallest possible degree of turf impact. With approximately the same PSI as a golf cart (6lbs), but only 25% of the footprint, the GolfBoard can reduce turf wear by as much as 75%.

The psi of a person walking is far greater than the psi of a golf cart or a GolfBoard. But psi alone is not the main cause of turf damage, it's redundant golf cart traffic patterns. The GolfBoard is much smaller and more maneuverable than a golf cart, which eliminates damaging recurrent traffic patterns, which helps keep grass healthier and Superintendents happier.

NEW REVENUE STREAMS FOR COURSE OPERATORS

The GolfBoard has proven to make golf more popular and courses more profitable:

 

Attract New Players - Golf is a game that players quickly come to love, but largely still undiscovered by a new generation of potential life long fans. GolfBoard appeals to the younger action sports crowd looking for adventure, excitement, and fun.

Increase Frequency Of Play - The avid player is GolfBoard's biggest fan. With a GolfBoard you can complete a round in half the time, so you can play twice as often.

Differentiate Your Course - GolfBoarding is an entirely new sport that most every golfer is eager to try. A rental fleet of GolfBoards provides an unique new offering that will attract players from other courses and keep them coming back for more.

Guest & Media Buzz - Nothing generates more media attention and positive word of mouth than a new GolfBoard program. Your members and guest will help spread the word about just how much fun they had.

Increase Rounds Played - After years of declining popularity, GolfBoard has proven time and time again to put courses back on track for strong growth. Many early adopters of GolfBoard have seen over a 30% increase in rounds played.

Generate More Revenue - While the overall goal of GolfBoard is help courses attract new players, plus provide their members and guests a unique new way to enjoy the game, one of the greatest benefits is to a course's bottom line.

 

Golf course owners think the future growth of the game will come from GolfBoard.
