Ride in Rhode Island at Historic Pawtucket CC

logo-1.png

Founded in 1902 by a handful of local Pawtucket businessmen, the club slowly emerged as a 9-hole club carved out of local farmland. As the club progressed it stretched to 12 holes, and by 1924, the Pawtucket Golf Club was able to enlist the services of famed golf course architect Willie Park, Jr. to expand the club to its full 18. It was after the disastrous clubhouse fire in 1954 that the club reorganized and became the Pawtucket Country Club that it is today.

With a moniker of "Fast Greens, Fast Rounds, and Fast Friends" the family-friendly club now has an 8-GolfBoard fleet to help add a new chapter to the Pawtucket CC history books as the first club in Rhode Island to offer GolfBoarding to their members. Yet another reason PCC is the place to be.

Contact the club at 401-725-2918 for more information.

TimberStone GC in Caldwell, Idaho is First Public Course to Offer GolfBoard

Timberstone-Golf-Caldwell.png

Farmland was turned into fairways in a test of willpower and determination that spanned several years. That determination finally became TimberStone Golf Club, the first public course in Idaho to offer GolfBoarding.

Billed as a proud landmark of the Treasure Valley, the Idaho Statesman recently published a piece by Chris Langrill extolling the virtues of GolfBoarding at TimberStone. Kelly Christensen, Head Golf Professional and Co-Owner of the facility, focused in on the fun-factor for his customers. "People come off the course and just rave about them," he said. "It's just such a unique way to play."

Scott Syms, Idaho Territory Manager for GolfBoard, and 25-year PGA Member reminds people "...when golf carts were introduced into the golf industry the attitude was: ‘That’s not golf. Golf is walking.' " Syms predicts GolfBoards will go mainstream in the very near future.

GolfBoard Finalizes $1,000,000+ Financing Agreement

Become A Shareholder - Offer Extended to 4/7/2017

PRESS RELEASE - UPDATED: APR 3, 2017 06:28 PDT

Bend, Oregon, April 3, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Sol Boards, Inc. of Bend, Oregon, has entered into a long-term financing agreement with Golf Capital Group (GCG) of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, to fund the rapid expansion of the Company’s managed fleet rental program. Through its new relationship with GCG, Sol Boards will significantly increase the size of its company-owned demo fleet from approximately 100 boards today to as many as 400 boards by year-end 2017.

GolfBoard has already deployed over 3,000 boards to over 300 courses worldwide. Many of these courses initially participated in a 60-day GolfBoard trial prior to making the decision to lease or purchase. Consequently, this potential 300% increase in company owned trial boards is expected to substantially increase the volume of follow-on purchases in the years ahead.

This new rental fleet financing agreement with GCG will also help accelerate the rapid adoption of the company’s new ResortBoard offering. By leveraging GolfBoard’s proprietary technology, the company expects to quickly penetrate the $15BN worldwide electric scooter marketplace.

The massive size of this adjacent market creates the potential for the popularity of the ResortBoard to eventually exceed its already highly successful GolfBoard.

“This multi-year financing agreement with Golf Capital Group will enable the company to accelerate an important growth engine by allowing significantly more golf courses and resorts to try our popular new offering,” said John Wildman, GolfBoard Chairman and CEO. “Our company’s growing demo fleet will also provide high-margin recurring revenue, which we expect to contribute millions of dollars to the company’s bottom line over the next few years.”

As part of this financing agreement, Golf Capital Group has the non-exclusive rights to develop ResortBoard rental centers throughout the southeastern US. These “Surf the Earth” shops in Oklahoma, Texas, Florida, and other southeast states will provide a valuable brick and mortar footprint, as well as further accelerate the company’s rapid growth.

Sol Boards, Inc. is now completing a second-round equity capital raise through its ongoing 506(c) offering which is being extended through Friday, April 7, 2017. The company has already raised approximately $1.6M so far this year, and anticipates reaching $2M by the close of the current offering.

For information on how to become a Sol Boards, Inc. shareholder and support the expansion of its revolutionary GolfBoard offering, as well as a global transformation in personal transportation, go to the company’s fundraising campaign page at https://www.startengine.com/startup/golfboard-2 .
