Windy Knoll GC is soon to offer hovercraft carts

By and |  July 9, 2013

On Sat. July 27, Windy Knoll Golf Club in Springfield Ohio will be the first course in the United States to feature two Neoteric Golf hovercrafts for use as golf carts.

World Golf Hall of Famer Nancy Lopez and LPGA player Paige Mackenzie will be on hand for the arrivals, along with Tim Rosaforte of NBC, Golf Channel and Golf Digest, who will serve as emcee for the news conference and dinner that follows the gold event that day.

Managing Director of Windy Knoll, Pete Duffey got the inspiration for the hovercrafts after seeing a YouTube video of PGA tour star Bubba Watson cruising the fairways in his “BW1” hovercraft.

“We wanted to be able to offer something no other course could,” Duffey said. “A way to further put Windy Knoll Golf Club on the map of public destination golf courses. It was an easy decision. When we saw them on YouTube, we said ‘We gotta have those!’”

Each Windy Knoll hovercraft will feature a 65-horsepower engine capable of reaching speeds up to 50 mph, side-by-side seating for up to four passengers, a lift-up roof, room for two golf bags and sand bottles.
