Links At Union Vale Gets 'Golfboards'

UNION VALE, N.Y. – GolfBoarding has arrived at The Links at Union Vale.

GolfBoard – named the “Best New Product for Golf” at the 2014 PGA Merchandise show, has delivered its first fleet in the Hudson Valley region at The Links.

“If every golf course offered GolfBoards, golf would be the most popular sport in the world,” said Stina Steinberg, Golf Digest global golf director.

The Links at Union Vale is an 18-hole championship golf course that is “forever changing the way golfers experience the game,” said Robert Caeners, its general manager. “GolfBoarding is safe, fun and easy for everyone to learn. Your golf game will never be the same after you play a round on the GolfBoard.”

Powered by an environmentally friendly lithium-ion battery, the GolfBoard – created by 83-year-old Don Wildman – is an easy-to-ride vehicle that adds a new level of fun and excitement for golfers of all ages, allowing golfers to “Surf the Earth” in a way that feels similar to snowboarding, surfing or skateboarding.

The GolfBoard is a cross between a skateboard and a cart and is built specifically for golf from the ground up. It is a four-wheel-drive, gear-driven, posi-traction golf transport vehicle. The user is always in full control of both the speed and direction, and the integrated thumb throttle controls the speed, while the user controls the direction through body movement.

“It is as intuitive to operate as it is fun to ride,” Caeners said. “GolfBoarding changes the golfing experience without changing the spirit and traditions of the game.”

Due to the popularity of the GolfBoard, Caeners recommends golfers make sure to reserve one when they call for a tee time. He added there is a 15-minute training session required before using the GolfBoard for the first time, so golfers should make sure to arrive early.
