GolfBoard's unique and proprietary features make it best-in-class
Ease of use and safety is optimized by an on-board computer that monitors speed and controls braking. The rider simply releases the thumb throttle, and the board immediately decelerates and comes to a complete stop. Then an automatic rear axle parking brake locks the board in position even on the steepest hill. This provides you a stable structure to step off, and won't allow the GolfBoard to roll away even if you come to a stop at a tricky sidehill shot.
Commercial Rental and Personal Use Options
GolfBoard riders have the ability to select either high speed or low speed modes of operation. For the Commercial Use Board, low speed is a gentle 5 mph, allowing first time users the ability to practice turning and operating the board with security and confidence. Once new users have perfected their GolfBoarding skills, they can advance to a maximum speed of 10 mph.
For personal use, GolfBoard offers an optional high performance package with low speed of 7 mph, and a maximum high speed of 12.5 mph on flat terrain, plus up to 14 mph down hill. This 25% to 40% increase in maximum speed also provides faster acceleration for those riders looking for a more adventuresome experience.
4 Wheel Drive Posi-Traction System
The GolfBoard is driven by front and back gear boxes providing power to all four wheels. This proprietary 4 wheel Posi-Traction feature provides solid climbing ability even on the steepest hills while simultaneously reducing turf wear.
The GolfBoard is primarily controlled using an ergonomically designed one-touch thumb throttle which allows the user to smoothly accelerate and decelerate. The throttle mechanism also features an intelligent LED battery charge level indicator. A Hi / low speed option mounted on the Stability Bar allows the user to set their maximum speed preference, along with a forward / reverse function that provides optimal maneuverability.
Industrial Strength Motors & Enclosed Drivetrain
The GolfBoard uses the highest quality industrial grade electric motors and fully enclosed drivetrain to ensure reliability and low maintenance. Built to handle
high-power industrial applications, the GolfBoard's motors are expected to be maintenance free for several years before requiring a simple and low cost replacement.
Genuine Turf Tires
The GolfBoard utilizes tires specifically made for golf course use. Produced by the world's leading manufacturer of turf equipment tires, GolfBoard's gentle-on-the-turf tires provide maximum traction while minimizing turf wear. With the GolfBoardss lighter weight distributed over the same surface area as much heavier equipment, there is substantially less impact and pressure on the turf than a fully loaded golf cart.
TOTALLY TURF FRIENDLY
Every golfer loves playing on turf that is healthy and beautifully manicured. Day in and day out Golf Course Superintendents everywhere do battle with the forces that try to undermine their ability to produce these desired pristine playing conditions.
Ironically, it’s the action of the golfers themselves that frequently causes the most amount of turf damage. Foot traﬃc and golf cart wear are the greatest contributing causes of damage to fairways.
Out of strict concern for minimizing injury to turf, the GolfBoard has been engineered to make the smallest possible degree of turf impact. With approximately the same PSI as a golf cart (6lbs per square inch), but only 25% of the footprint, the GolfBoard can reduce turf wear by as much as 75%.
The psi of a person walking is far greater than the psi of a golf cart or a GolfBoard. But psi alone is not the main cause of turf damage, it's redundant golf cart traﬃc patterns. The GolfBoard is much smaller and more maneuverable than a golf cart, which eliminates damaging recurrent traffic patterns, which helps keep grass healthier and superintendents happier.
