After an exciting new partnership in 2018, GolfBoard is
set to make its return at the 2019 World Am! The first patented all-wheel drive personal transport vehicle for golf, GolfBoards took the game by storm when they were named Best New Product at the 2014 PGA Show.
We are proud to announce GolfBoards will again be at a different World Am host course each day of the tournament, including the Saturday skins game at True Blue, providing a total of 40 lucky participants the opportunity to “Surf the Earth” during their round. Last year, the lucky golfers selected to ride GolfBoards a two stroke reduction on average in their gross scores compared to players riding in carts. The opportunity to ride the course and ‘be one with the earth’ was a fun and exciting proposition for both rookie and veteran participants.
Don’t let the allusion to surfing scare you off. A GolfBoard is stable and extremely easy to operate. The base of the board is a wide, stable platform to stand on, and learning to steer, which you are able to do with minimal effort, is easy. By the time you enjoy a little pre-round training, navigating it around the course quickly becomes second nature.
And since a GolfBoard has 25% of the footprint of a golf cart, you can take a direct path to your ball around greens. According to the GolfBoard representative in Myrtle Beach;
“GolfBoards are a perfect transport for tournament play by giving the player the independence to ride directly to his own ball, at his or her own pace, with their own thoughts, focus, and attitude. And for some players, the ability to remain standing between shots and not constantly having to get in and out of a golf cart, can reduce muscle stiffness and aches and pains to the back and knees. As shown from the 2018 World Am, golfing with a GolfBoard can actually improve scoring! And we expect to see great scoring from Team GolfBoard again at this year’s at the Myrtle Beach World Amateur.”
Golf hasn’t offered many “fun” innovations, but the GolfBoard will increase your enjoyment of the game. And for those of you wondering, yes, a GolfBoard comes complete with a drink holder.
So, how can you win a chance to use a GolfBoard during the World Am? Once course assignments are complete, if you are playing a layout where the boards will be available, you will receive an email to signup. So be on the lookout for the email and make sure you enter for a chance to win a round on a GolfBoard.
If a course you play isn’t selected, have no fear. GolfBoards have been a part of the Myrtle Beach market for a few years as True Blue, TPC Myrtle Beach and World Tour Golf Links have them available full time. You can even book them for a practice round by clicking here.
Golf adopts change slowly, sometimes grudgingly, but GolfBoards are here to stay. Simply put, they are a “Faster, Fitter and Funner” way to get around a golf course.
There will be a GolfBoard booth at the World’s Largest 19th Hole, so make sure you visit and learn how you can “Surf the Earth.”
