Bubba Watson’s hovercraft golf cart

Want to be the envy of everyone on the golf course without actually improving your golfing skills? Then you just need to ride out onto the green in the BW1, the world’s first hovercraft golf cart.

Pro golfer Bubba Watson teamed up with Oakley to produce the eye-catching cart, who then enlisted the help of Chris Fitzgerald, president of Neoteric Hovercraft, Inc., for the actual construction.

The final result is basically a hovercraft outfitted with some features lifted from a typical golf cart, including a canopy, sand bottle holders, and a space to hold clubs. Aside from the stylish design, the new cart also provides a much smoother ride and can float over any terrain while barely leaving a mark. It can even glide over water hazards and sand traps, though your fellow golfers probably won’t appreciate the debris it kicks up if they’re nearby.

    Let’s buy one for Obama, with enough gas to take him at least ten miles out to sea, and a locked-on nav system to point him that way.

      Sounds like a plan to me ,,,,,,,,,

    • ONTIME

      Hell, let’s just find him guilty and launch him into the sun….be worth the loot.

  • William White

    Looks cool but how fuel efficient are they and what happens if they stop on the water??? willit float??

    • OldDocBen

      They float since they are essentially a boat with a skirt.

    Cute – but it must be damned noisy. Let’s buy one for the great userper but only if it WON”T float.

  • slickzip

  • Casmige

    He’ll too-soon be out of business with all the Obama Crap-Care regulations kicking into place this year & the next.

  • OldDocBen

    As a licensed hovercraft pilot I am happy to see the market flourish but as a person this is just stupid.

  • ONTIME

    Might change the looks of the golf course and the way you get around and I might just get a caddy job just to scoot around the place….High winds might be a prob…

  • gdoggerz

    Too bad no one has money to buy one and the economy is going to collapse soon…this invention may have had a chance.
