Conceived by Bally Total Fitness Founder, Don Wildman, and legendary big wave surfer, Laird Hamilton, GolfBoarding is an entirely new way to traverse terrain and is forever changing the way golfers experience the game. The four-wheel drive, electric board allows users to turn by simply transferring their body weight in a carving motion akin to snowboarding or surfing.
GolfBoards are durable and built with a safety-first, user-friendly mantra to provide golfers a more active and engaging alternative to passively riding in a cart. Advanced technology allows GolfBoarders to customize board settings and configurations, including adjusting speeds from 5 to 10 mph via a simple, one-touch switch.
There are two versions of the GolfBoard: a commercial-grade GolfBoard ideal for rental fleet use, and a personal use SportBoard available to be customized with a wide selection of custom fender colors, graphics, wheels, and decks. Plus, a high-performance package providing a top speed up to 14 mph depending on the terrain. Dozens of individual golfers – including PGA Tour stars and A-List celebrities – have purchased GolfBoards for personal use at their favorite courses. Affordable personal and fleet leasing options are offered.
Courses offering GolfBoards for rent have improved pace of play, generated more rounds played, and reduced course maintenance costs, increasing revenue and profits. GolfBoard is now available at 250 courses in the US, Canada, Mexico, United Arab Emirates and Indonesia, and has distributors in Switzerland, Australia and the United Kingdom. There are nearly 2,000 GolfBoards currently in service, and Sol Boards Inc. is expecting to nearly double its global footprint by the end of 2017.
