Mercedes-Benz And Garia Wants To Make Golf Cart Look More Like A Car

With the exception of a small number, golf cart generally looks the same. You know, the same, boring boxy cart with an impossibly straight bench seat for two, has room for two full-size golf bags around the back, and perhaps, a couple of cup holders. Already, that sounds beyond boring, doesn’t it? However, that may change, if Mercedes-Benz and Danish golf cart maker Garia have their way. And the fairway-going vehicle that’s going to bring about the change would be the Mercedes-Benz Style Edition Garia Golf Car which it creators billed as “a real sports car.” Continue reading Mercedes-Benz And Garia Wants To Make Golf Cart Look More Like A Car

Batman Tumbler Golf Cart

we don’t do many golf carts here, but if we do, you can be sure it will be one heck of a (golf course) ride, like this Batman Tumbler Golf Cart that is currently on eBay going for a cool $17,500. it is listed as “used”, but still, it looks kind of too cute to resist. described by its seller as “one of a kind”, this Dark Knight’s golf course ride of choice started life as an EZ-Go Golf Cart and was stripped down to the frame and four cup holders (!), and after which, custom frame and sheet metal, along with sculpted, molded cowl are fitted to it. it took its creator some 30 grand to turn that the boring EZ-Go ride into one that you see here and according to the seller, it spent a quarter of its time on a studio lot, with the rest of time kept indoors as a display (which we would gladly do if we have that kind of money to drop).

GolfBoard – Skateboard For Golfers

hitting those dimpled white balls on the fairway is fun, but traveling between those strokes ain’t one of them. seriously, if it is that fun, electric golf carts wouldn’t be invented to shorten the agony of the short in-between walks. however, golf cart can get dull pretty quickly too and for a moment it seems that the option for on course transportation is pretty much closed until the Golf Cart Hovercraft came along. but that’s well beyond most average dude’s reach (it’s 58 grand, btw), which means the golfing transportation industry is still in dire need for some serious shake up. and shake up it sure has now; in the form of the GolfBoard, a purposed built motorized skateboard for golfers.

Mercedes-Benz Vision Golf Cart

as you can see from the design sketch above, this is pretty much a concept, but not as one would have expected from luxury car maker Mercedes-Benz. it is a golf cart, albeit being a concept, it is still a cart unlike any others. the concept sketch pretty much speaks for themselves, but one thing that you are probably not aware of is, this vehicle is the result of a crowd source effort initiated by Mercedes-Benz. calling upon golf and automobile fans around the globe to chip in their vision of what the golf car should be and the best, most unusual, most innovative and promising concepts were pulled together to create the Mercedes-Benz Vision Golf Cart. while bearing a car-like form, the Mercedes-Benz Vision Golf Cart, like any of today’s golf cart, is electric driven and juiced by a battery pack that is kept continuously charged by a solar module setup on its roof (too bad if you prefer night golfing though) – though conventional plug-in charging is also supported.

The Golf Cart Hovercraft

forget about the pimped up Pennwick Custom Golf Carts. if you really want absolute style when you are hitting the fairways, The Golf Cart Hovercraft by Neoteric Hovercraft is the way to go. when pro golfer Bubba Watson’s Oakley BW1 hovercraft first made its debut, you couldn’t own one even you have the cash to spare, but thanks to the good people at Hammacher Schlemmer, you can now own one for just $58,000. no kidding. the craft is ready for your taking as long you have the money; all that’s left to do is to find a golf course that will tolerate a vehicle that’s capable of gliding over sand traps and water hazards with its whirling 65 horsepower twin-cylinder Hirth engine. the Hirth engine drives a nine-blade axial-flow ducted fan, enabling this amphibious vehicle to hit 45 mph (72 km/h), while keeping it hovering at a comfortable 9 inches off the ground, thereby keeping the lush greeneries beneath out of harms way (though we can’t say the same for the sand trap).
