Fusing skateboard fun with golfing sensibility, the Golf Skate Caddy raised eyebrows at several Australian golf tournaments, with host of TV’s The Golf Show Ossie Moore embracing the new technology.

“I’ve ridden the GSC at several Pro-Am tournaments, and the first question people ask is ‘You’re not going to ride that, are you?' followed three seconds later by, ‘Can I’ve a go?’," the 55-year-old Queensland pro golfer said.

The GSC’s agility and speed have been the biggest drawcards, making it more appealing than a traditional golf cart. “I think it would particularly appeal to the 18-35 age market, and does not require any special skills or former surfing or skateboard experience,” he said. “It doesn’t lock up when braking, there is a fitting for the umbrella, sand bucket and drink holder along with LED lighting both rear and front.”

And it’s quiet too.

“I could duck around the place and get closer to the ball than I could in a cart. It was also quieter than a traditional golf cart, which I wasn’t expecting." As a professional player and Coordinator of Golfing at The Grand Golf Club on the Gold Coast, Ossie also said the GSC left less of an imprint on the course. “It was friendlier on the golf course in terms of impact,” he said. “And, after using the GSC, it was easily loaded into the trunk of the car and charged through a normal household power point.”

After using the prototype Ossie said he had been eagerly awaiting the release of the commercial product.

“To clarify, I have NO financial interest in this product or the company involved in producing or marketing the Golf SkateCaddy,” Ossie said.

As one of the few privileged golfers who have had the chance to trial the new, cutting edge GSC, Andy Webb has concluded it’s a definite “winner”. “It’s the same game with a new dimension,” Andy, who is originally from Maryland in the US and currently living near Sydney in Australia, said. “It’s a truly unique way to get around the course and actually enhanced my experience of the game by providing a sense of exhilaration and freedom.” Andy said he found the GSC easy to ride thanks to its wide stand and ergonomic handle. “At first I thought I’d have to have really good balance, but that wasn’t the case at all,” he said. “It was really sturdy and easy to manoeuvre. It was great fun, easy to ride and really simple.”

“Exhilarating, easy-to-ride and economical…”.

That’s how Bali bomb victim and President of the Queensland Amputee Golf Association Ben Tullipan described the GSC after being given the opportunity to test-drive the innovative golf-transport device on the Gold Coast, Australia.

Ben, who was Australia’s worst injured survivor in the 2002 blast, lost both his legs in the attack and suffered severe burns to his body.

He took up golf in 2007 as part of his rehabilitation and as a form of recreation. While the GSC has not been specifically designed as a disability ride, Ben said its simple-to-operate technology; sturdy design and adrenaline-inspiring ride would appeal to other amputees and open up the game of golf to a wider range of players. “Riding the GSC made it easier to get around the course and get closer to the green than a traditional golf cart,” Ben said. “It made the game a bit more enjoyable and was a lot faster to finish 18 holes than in a normal cart.”

Not only that, the "thrill" of the ride added another dimension to Ben’s golf game. “It was a bit more fun than my usual game of golf. It took me back to my childhood, and riding a skate board,” he said.

“It was really easy to get the hang of, and I had an absolute ball surfing the fairways." And with the GSC cheaper than a traditional cart, Ben said it could also help drive more people to the game.

“It will make golf more affordable,” Ben said. “The cost of a traditional golf cart is very expensive. Even to hire a cart adds a considerable cost to your game, and that adds up. The GSC would be a more affordable option for a lot of people, and bring more people to the game.”
