One of my best friends Nick is a huge golf lover.
He is a middle aged men he likes to play old-school so I wondered what would he say about our latest golf vehicle the ES-Board.
Let me use his words instead of mine. "The Southern California breeze is blowing in my face as I’m sitting aboard one of the David's single-rider electric vehicles. It’s exhilarating, to say the least.
My firs impressions were that these scooters can really speed up play. With no one ahead to slow us down, our group played 18 holes in less than three-and-a-half hours. That’s an hour ahead of pace. And we took our time. That’s because after you shoot, you can drive directly to your ball without needing to drop off a playing partner at his or her ball -- as you might need to do while driving a traditional cart. It can be a significant time-saver. Plus with the speed of the scooter, you can make it to your next shot in a matter of seconds.
Turning tight corners was never an issue. Nor was going over bumps. What was another delightful feature is that this scooter had 3 wheels so I was not forced to play with the two-sided kickstand every time I got off the scooter like others were on their two wheelers.
What I liked best about the golf scooter is that it helped me focus more on my own game. Driving only to my ball, I had extra time to figure out which club I needed to hit next and where I wanted the ball to land. Believe me, I’m slow to adapt to things. But I will take the scooter out again for a golf round, at the next opportunity.
