Enjoy a Summer Breeze on a GolfBoard at LongBow in Mesa, Arizona

logo-1.png

Cold and Snowing where you are? Maybe you should pack up and head to Longbow Golf Club where summer breezes are still going on. Our newest Showcase Course, Longbow's expanding fleet of 16 GolfBoards are attracting players from around the area and around the country.

A Ken Kavanaugh layout originally built in 1997, the course was redesigned in 2001 and now offers 2 different membership levels, both of which include GolfBoard use at no extra charge!

Bob McNichols, General Manager, said they originally were looking to encourage a new demographic of golfer who was interested in a new experience. "We needed to expand our fleet simply based on demand. We would sell out on the weekends and didn't have any left for other golfers who requested them," he said. 

Longbow does about 37,000 rounds per year and has seen an increase in younger players since offering the GolfBoards. They brought the boards in to make it more fun and have seen it appeal to all ages and genders.

Longbow is managed by OB Sports Golf Management. Reserve your Longbow tee time by calling 480-807-5400 and enjoy your summer breeze on a GolfBoard!

GolfBoard: The Right Stuff For Golf

It's been said the golf industry is the Number 1 producer of gizmo's and gadgets. So much so that the editors at GOLF Magazine regularly devote an entire section to golf stuff. Entitled STUFF WE LOVE, they pour over different offerings of the latest and greatest products for the game and offer their top 25 choices for their loyal readers and lovers of golf.

The November 2017 issue once again brought the editors together to generate this hallowed list. Naturally we were intrigued by the pick of Jeff Ritter, their Digital Development Editor, who called the GolfBoard "...an absolute blast." Hope to see you in Orlando again, Jeff!

 "I first tried a GolfBoard last January on a lush patch of lawn at the annual PGA expo in Orlando, and I've been looking for a course where I can hop on for the full experience ever since.' (Click  HERE  Jeff!) 'The boards are simple to use and, most important, an absolute blast. (This game is supposed to be fun, isn't it?) My hunch is that these will provide plenty of it...' –Jeff Ritter

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.

Just Doing Our Part to Help Grow the Game

In an effort to help grow the game we all love, we created something for the sport that tackles many of the gripes people have about it:

"It takes too long to play golf."
GolfBoard speeds up the game, allowing players to play a complete round in 2 1/2 to 3 hours.

"Golf is boring."
The GolfBoard is breathing new excitement and fun to golf, without changing the game.

"The GolfBoard is too hard to ride."
In less than 5 minutes you will be riding the GolfBoard with ease and be ready to play.

In an era of gadgets and gimmicks to try and persuade people to play golf, the GolfBoard rises to the top as the Best of 2017:

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.
