The TPC Myrtle Beach is the second golf course on the Grand Strand to offer GolfBoards, joining True Blue Golf Club, which began offering them last November. Both facilities have started with four.
A GolfBoard is a fun alternative to a golf cart for individual players that resembles a hybrid of a skateboard, surfboard and snowboard.
Clubs go on the front of the battery-powered GolfBoard, which has four-wheel drive, a stabilizing handlebar and thumb accelerator button. A user steers the board by shifting weight – similar to a skateboard or surfboard. The board immediately slows to a stop if the accelerator button is released.
Golfboards are easier on the turf than golf carts, allow users to get closer to greens and allow them to burn more calories with the movement required to steer.
TPC Myrtle Beach is offering the GolfBoards for a fee comparable to a cart fee. It was named the “Best New Product” at the PGA Merchandise Show when it was introduced in 2014. GolfBoards can be reserved by calling TPC Myrtle Beach at 843-357-3399.
