A video of last year’s Masters’ champion Bubba Watson driving across the fairways, water hazards and sand traps of Phoenix’s Raven Golf Club in a $20,000 (before customizations) BW1 hovercraft went viral this week. This tricked out cart includes all the features of a regular cart – canopy, space to hold clubs, etc. – and doesn’t leave a trace on the green or fairway. It also has the added power of turning every golfer on the course a shade greener than the green.
Although interest in the hovercraft golf cart has spiked significantly since the video was released Tuesday, reports say the hovercraft was the result of a viral marketing campaign created by Oakley and Neoteric Hovercraft, Inc. and was never intended for the market. Sadly, normal golf carts will have to do for the average golfer…for now.
