A Golf Cart Hovercraft sounds exactly the kind of thing that will wreak havoc in a golf course, but actually it’s better for the terrain and grass. Here is a little proof of Bubba Watson riding something similar to this around. We don’t see no damage. In fact it looks like soooooooooo much fun.
Remember the Garia LSV, a golf cart that’s actually legal for driving in the streets? Well, think of this as the water version, so you can drive your cart straight into the lakeside course instead of taking a boat there. Or something like that.
Why use a hovercraft in the golf course? Mostly, because you crave attention being an overgrown manchild. Partly, because the Golf Cart Hovercraft is just all manners of awesome. Being a proper hovercraft, it can glide over sand traps and water hazards just as easily as it can maneuver through fairways and roughs. That means, no more taking the long way while you drive around the course — as long as trees and buildings (and, well, people) aren’t in your way, you can just take the straight path.
Powered by a 65-hp twin-cylinder Hirth engine and a nine-blade axial-flow ducted fan, it can ride 9 inches off the ground at speeds of up to 45 mph, with backwards hovering up to 25 mph. Features include a four-person cabin, a lift-up roof, an open rear compartment sized to hold a pair of golf bags, motorcycle-style handlebars, and a skirt system with individually handmade segments. Hull is constructed from fiberglass and urethane foam composite.
The Golf Cart Hovercraft is available from Hammacher Schlemmer, priced at $58,000.
