Forget your golf cart, there’s a new way to get around the course!
Have you heard of the Golf Board? It’s basically an electronic surfboard with a handle that carries your bag and can get you around the golf course in a jiffy. In 2014, the Golf Board won “Best New Product” from the PGA, which brought it recognition in the golf world. 130 courses now offer these boards, instead of your usual golf cart, including golf courses in Hawaii.

These boards come at a price, but that’s no problem for resort courses or professionals. Rickie, Rory, Henrik, and Jordan, all got their Golf Board on in Abu Dhabi this week. They were participating in some fun, friendly competition before the real game starts for the HSBC Golf Championship. Everyone is getting pumped for this tournament, since this is the first one of the year that Rory will be playing in.
This is definitely a great way to make the game of golf more exciting for young golfers. Who wouldn’t want to glide skate board style across green fairways? Sounds dope! Hopefully the Golf Board will be coming to local courses soon, so we can all be “surfing the earth” on these babies!
