NOTORIOUS FOR SPOILING good walks, golf now spoils its participants with good—if not great—rides. Amenities on today’s golf cars include plush leather seats, quick acceleration, a locking under-seat trunk, lifted suspension, LED headlights and taillights, custom tires, Bluetooth speakers and a graphic touchscreen (Club Car Connect) to relay battery life, mileage and distances to the hole or home or other spots in the neighborhood.
All this—and much more—is available on the Club Car Onward. “It’s as much about lifestyle as it is about golf,” says Abbie Randel, the vice president of operations for Colorado Golf & Turf, Club Car’s exclusive Colorado distributor.
With a growing number of private clubs allowing members to ride in their own carts, the highly customizable Onward has become the model of choice for members who live near their clubs. Why waste gas or let someone valet the BMW when you can head to the club or the neighbor’s house in your sleek Blue Onyx, Candy Apple Red or other metallic-hued Onward?
The latest model, the electric Onward HP Li-Ion, features a 3.1 kW hour Lithium-Ion battery that never needs watering or service. Its 375 Amp controller powers the 29hp motor to deliver outstanding hill-climbing power and acceleration that will not diminish during the six years for which the battery is warrantied. CG&T can even program the drive mode to econ, normal or sport to maximize its performance to your liking.
An eminently customizable Personal Transport Vehicle (PTV), the Onward HP Li-Ion comes in two-, four-, and six-seat models. They share the CG&T showroom floor with street-legal (on roads 35 mph or less) Low Speed Vehicles (LSVs) such as the Villager and the Current. The latter, a mini flatbed truck, delivers packages in Vail Village as the town tries to eliminate the exhaust, noise and traffic caused by gas-powered delivery trucks.
On the golf course, there will always be golfers who prefer traversing the course on foot. For them, Club Car makes the Tempo Walk. The electric, hands-free, remote-controlled bag carrier has been spoiling golfers at Bethpage State Park, Torrey Pines, Desert Mountain Golf Club and locally at Cherry Creek Country Club. coloradogolfandturf.net; 303-761-3332
