Hawaii's Golf Courses Now Offer GolfBoards, Because Hawaii is Basically Heaven

Until they figure out how to make a golf course on top of the Pacific Ocean, riding around on GolfBoards in Hawaii will remain the only way to infuse surfing into our golf game.

The Los Angeles Times reports two of Hawaii's courses are changing the game when it comes to course conveyances. 

According to the report, both Mauna Kea Golf Course and Hapuna Golf Course offer patrons the option of boarding around 18 holes rather than bumping around in those suddenly archaic golf carts.

While there is suddenly less space to stick your beers purchased at the turn, you have to admit that adding something of a sport within a sport looks like a great deal of fun.

Here are a couple of videos that illustrate how to make your time in paradise that much better:

As mentioned in the above video, the benefit of such a vehicle is that you are constantly standing, which does add the benefit of keeping the various golf muscles warm.

For example, the legs are prepared to kick that golf club when you shank your drive well into the rough.

As for prices, the Mauna Kea Golf Course states at its website: “Carve your way through your next round with this fun new way to experience the golf course. Golfers: $25, 9 holes or $35, 18 holes. Non-Golfers: $35.” Hapuna Golf Course offers a flat rate of $35 for golfers or non-golfers.

The rate at Mauna Kea includes the cart fee, so the GolfBoard is an added expense for those who want to add a bit more excitement into the usual endeavor of getting to your ball.

Now this won’t make you a better golfer or even all that better at surfing. It will however put a smile on your face, which is exactly why we vacation anyway.
