I have seen more and more of my colleagues at work using electric scooter to commute from train station to the work place (about 2km away). Some of them look big and tough enough to accommodate a golfer and a cart bag!

You can find my other types online, here is the "typical" specs:

  • Motor: 1000W/ 1600W Peak
  • Battery Pack: 48V 12Ah 
  • Top Speed: 50km/h (mode, terrain, riding style, weight dependant)
  • Max Km: 35km
  • Range: 35 km/h (mode, terrain, riding style, weight dependant)
  • Wheelbase: 97cm
  • Max Rider Weight: 120kg
  • Charging time: 6-8 hours
  • Charging Voltage: 220-240v
  • Price around: $500 - $600 AUD

Now that's some serious power.... a comparable two passengers golf cart runs at 3,3000W, at least 10 times heavier and cost at least 6 times more... and more importantly not portable. As me and my bag run around 100kgs (under the weight limit), this present a good alternative to hiring a golf cart. My calculation suggest it will take less than 20 golf cart hires to pay for the scooter.

 

What are my chances here that this will work?

Tyres are far too narrow meaning they would dig in more and damage course and no sensible golf club worker would allow that to be ridden on course.Omo.

Unless you play on a particularly flat course, I suspect that it will not last for 18 holes. Do the maths to compare with a Parmaker or similar and I think you'll find it's a bit light on battery capacity.

A few of the guys at my club have something similar to this, but I think they spent $900-1100 to get the better models. Some of the guys carry their bags and a couple of them attach a cheap trolley and then tow them.

 

Seems like a good idea.

My club pro was selling ones similar to this about a year ago.  

 

They seem to go alright.

Thanks for the replies, yeah, bit afraid the course won't let me use it (after forking $500) and power wise it is pretty powerful, and you are only carry a person, instead of two persons....

That's very interesting!!! Was it in Australian golf club? Will check out the brand name... movebuggysuper .... Looking at the model you got they aren't that different from generic - no name electric scooter...

 

Edit: managed to find the manufacturer - http://monobuggy.dk/ 

 

-- price is $2,500 AUD... bit more expensive than I what I got in mind. And they mentioned that "...We have documentation for the wheel pressure pr. sq. cm (the pressure is less than a normal Golfcar with 2 persons) so no damage to the Fairway...."

It says 35km, assuming 6-7km course, max 10km to account for my bad hits, seems quite plenty of margin of error...

Sunshine GC in melbourne.

They were selling for about $800 or so from memory. Ive also has a go on the golf skateboard and that actually requires some effort to ride around. Also costs a packet at $5k

I wanted to take one for a test run but they only had an instore display model.

I could rock that I reckon.

Ozdevil sized golfers need not apply though I reckon, dont think they'd have enough juice to get through an entire round.

It says up to 35km depending on terrain and load. Even a fairly short course will have you doing at least 10km. Then the question is load, comparing a big Aussie with a bag of clubs to a little Asian guy rolling along level paved roads. I'm just a bit doubtful it will have enough capacity.

Perhaps compare the specs to one of those skate caddies.
