Golf surfing has arrived
October 8, 2015
“Tokatee is a perfect fit for GolfBoarding with its undulating landscape, gorgeous scenery and charming, rustic heritage,” says Jeff Dowell, President of GolfBoard. “As an Oregon-based brand, we also enjoy partnering with our state’s best, most iconic courses.”
Conceived by Bally Total Fitness Founder Don Wildman and legendary big wave surfer Laird Hamilton, GolfBoarding is an entirely new way to traverse the golf course and is changing the way golfers experience the game. The four-wheel drive board allows users to turn by simply transferring their body weight in a carving motion akin to snowboarding or surfing.
“GolfBoarding has been extremely well-received by our loyal following of golfers,” says Mark Giustina, owner of Tokatee Golf Club. “The partnership marries tradition and the future of the game in a way that will make golf more attractive to players of all ages.”
Powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, GolfBoards are ultra-durable and built with a safety-first and user-friendly mantra to provide golfers a more active and engaging alternative to riding in a cart.
Advanced technology allows GolfBoarders to customize board settings and configurations to their riding preference including adjusting speed settings from 6 to 10 mph via a simple, one-touch switch. Available since April 2014, GolfBoard is now offered at more than 120 courses in the US, Canada, and Mexico.
