The golf bikes are here

The golf bikes are here

  •  

    Remember a couple months ago when we were talking about new products from the PGA Show, and there was a photo of a golf bike -- specially made to carry a light golf bag? Well, they have arrived. Troon Golf bought some and "rolled" them out at the Westin Kierland in Scottsdale. It's a pretty flat course, so I'd say that's a good choice -- but it also gets darn hot there in the summer! Here's the story: http://www.pga.com/news/golf-buzz/bicycle-golf-debuts-kierland-golf-club-in-scottsdale-ariz?cid=social_20140514_23877344

    I think I would rather walk.

    One of the senior ladies at our course rides a golf bike now and has for a few years......does not help her pace of play......but she does get a lot of exercise and she is in great shape....will have to get a picture of her one day......she even has an umbrella attachment for the hot humid days in Charleston.....

    Maybe a big tricycle designed to carry a golf bag.

    Cool idea...

    Personally, I would walk.

    Say it isn't so.   Next,  one built for two

    Looks like a chance to fall over a couple of times for sure.

    Agreed. I don't need more stuff on the course. Less is more.

    I agree with Mark less is more, It's not gonna help the game then why bother ?

    Count me in, not my idea of fun.  Rather be walking.

    To each their own seems to be the best course of action. We could all do with more exercise and it's got to be better for us than using a cart.

    I like the idea: exercise but faster than walking, can go any where on course with your clubs, and you can play faster than cart or walking. But where do I keep my beer and cigarettes ? ;)

    hmm... I agree on flat courses this could be useful but I can only think of 1 or 2 courses in my area that are flat enough for such an idea. I think people are on the right track but just not useful enough for hilly courses.

    I can see my 11 year old trying to stunt ride with one of these rigs - A wheelie down the fairway after a good drive...

    The course I work at is pretty flat, so these things might be fun to try out.  But I like walking with the three wheeled push cart.  And I am sure some *** fool would try and jump a pond and end up drowning himself.  But still a nifty idea, they get five points for creativity.
