GolfBoards available at True Blue, TPC Myrtle Beach
The Hammock Coast Golf Trail understands that playing golf in South Carolina’s Lowcountry is about having the best all-around experience possible, down to the very vehicle carrying you around the golf course. That’s because right now, when you book a Trail round at either True Blue Golf Club or TPC Myrtle Beach, you can request to use a GolfBoard when you play.
What is a GolfBoard, you ask?
GolfBoard is a surf- and skateboard-inspired motorized vehicle that allows a player to steer and cruise the course by shifting his or her weight one way or another. They are safe and easy to use for players of all ages, and max out at 11.5 miles per hour, slower than a standard golf cart.
In November 2015, True Blue became the first course on the Grand Strand to invest in GolfBoard, after the Oregon-based company was given the Best New Product Award at the 2014 PGA Merchandising Show. Since then, TPC Myrtle Beach has followed suit. True Blue Head Golf Professional Bart Romano said, “They’re a lot of fun. It’s a completely different way to enjoy a round of golf.”
If you’re booking a package through the Hammock Coast Golf Trail, GolfBoards can be booked as part of your reservation, or you can call the pro shop or email in advance. They do have a calendar for booking. There is also a $29 fee the day of play. In addition, you must watch a five-minute safety video and there is a liability waiver.
Romano said, “Pretty much everyone enjoys it when they ride it,” adding of what makes the GolfBoard experience truly unique is that “when you’re riding them, you’re not really thinking so much about the golf. You ride up to your ball. You hit your shot, and when the other players are hitting, you can’t wait to jump back on and ride around. Whether you hit a good shot or a bad shot, it’s kind of irrelevant. You’re just enjoying a different way to get around a golf course.”
