Reduced Course Wear
Seasoned golfers know all too well the damage caused by traditional golf buggies on golf course turf.
This is where the uniquely engineered Golf Skate Caddy™ steps in and makes its low impact on the world's golfing fairways.
Golf carts and other vehicles impact and wear down the turf by compacting the soil and damaging the grass itself. Several studies have analysed this damage, and by looking at the results of the 'pressure' on the green, it becomes clear why the Golf Skate Caddy™ creates less impact and reduced wear on the golf course fairways than more traditional modes of transport.
How is the Golf Skate Caddy™ gentler on the course?
The Golf Skate Caddy™ impacts the green less than a golf buggy because the surface area of the tyres making contact with the grass are significantly smaller, reducing the overall footprint resulting in less wear and soil compaction. The actual impaction per square metre compared to a golf buggy is potentially 82% less on the surface area of the golf course and similar to or less than a golfer walking with a golf trolley. Now that’s amazing!
Due to the relatively small ground contact area and a ground force pressure similar to a golfer on foot it has been demonstrated that the Golf Skate Caddy™ offers a significant reduction in course wear and tear, resulting in less maintenance compared to current popular modes of course transport. This means more time for golf and more people playing on the course - Both important key factors that make a real difference.
In essence, it makes sense for both clubs and players to take charge, and tee up with the Golf Skate Caddy™
