Golf Skate Caddies, what’s all the fuss about?

Word on the street is the game of golf just got cooler (as if that’s possible, right?) No longer do you need to squish into a caddy and follow two balls down the fairway. Golf caddies just got an update of the super-cool persuasion. Introducing the Golf Skate Caddy™; the first single player golf transportation product that combines board sports with golf.

Although this might sound like a gimmick, these new caddies are revolutionising the game of golf for the better – and Ringwood Golf is the first golf course in Victoria to have the Golf Skate Caddy™ on offer for hire. Equipped with the latest technology, these bad boys can increase play by 50 percent for 18 holes. That’s right golf fans; the Golf Skate Caddy™ can move up to six players per tee time. The classic two person caddy restricts players on where they can drive and which balls to follow. The Golf Skate Caddy™ provides golfers with independence and the freedom to travel the flight path of the ball and really get to know the hole to set up the perfect shot.

When it comes to actually using one of these vehicles, the Golf Skate Caddy™ will have you hangin’ ten on the course. And yes, it’s as fun as it sounds. By using a side stance similar to a snow or surf board, players lean their body’s weight left or right whilst holding onto the specially designed mono handle for stability and use the trigger controller to accelerate or brake.

The Golf Skate Caddy™ not only makes golf a more independent sport, it makes it more accessible too. People with joint issues, hip or knee replacements can play golf using the Golf Skate Caddy™ and enjoy the freedom of cruising down the fairway. Golfers of any age and ability can also play some sweet tunes as they tee off, with the Golf Skate Caddy™ allowing them to play music and connect to their smart phones.

These caddies also get the green thumbs up too. Traditional caddies can cause damage on the golf course turf, the Golf Skate Caddy™, however, does not. Because the surface of area of the tyres making contact with the grass are significantly smaller than those of a traditional caddy, the overall footprint results in less wear and tear on the course.
