PRESCOTT, WI (May 2015) – Clifton Highlands Golf Club is the first golf course in the area to make GolfBoards available to its patrons. GolfBoards are a high-tech version of an electric skateboard. Best New Product Winner of the 2014 PGA Merchandise Show, GolfBoards add a new level of fun and excitement to this sport rooted in tradition.

The easy to ride, lithium-ion battery powered transport speeds up the game, is very intuitive to operate, has less impact on the turf than a golf cart and allows golfers to ‘Surf the Earth’ in a way that feels similar to snowboarding, surfing, or skateboarding. Controlling the 4WD, posi-traction GolfBoard is easy and intuitive; golfers simply step up onto the board and, using either the wireless handheld controller or the on-board thumb-throttle, gently engage power to the wheels and away they go. Users are in full control of the speed and braking at all times, while movement side-to-side guides the steering. All it takes is a brief training session and GolfBoarders are off to the first tee!

“We’re proud to be the first course offering GolfBoards in our area,” explained Clifton Highlands Golf Club Manager Ryan Timm. “Clifton Highlands is bringing innovation to our course to attract more people to the sport and add a new element of fun for our avid golfers.”

Clifton Highlands GolfBoards rent for $25 for 18 holes and $15 for 9. Golf cart rentals are also still available for $16 per person. Call 715-262-5141 or toll-free 1-800-657-6845 or visit cliftonhighlands.com to reserve a tee time.

It is a fairly tight course with wooded areas, water and sand coming into play.

About Golf Boards

Best New Product Winner of the 2014 PGA Merchandise Show, the Golfboard is an easy to ride, lithium-ion battery powered transport adding a new level of fun and excitement never before seen on a golf course. The GolfBoard speeds up the game, is very intuitive to operate, has less impact on the turf than a golf cart and allows golfers to ‘Surf the Earth’ in a way that feels similar to snowboarding, surfing, or skateboarding. Traversing from shot to shot across the golf course, however, has now taken on a whole new dimension of fun, action, and excitement.

The history behind the GolfBoard reads like a ‘who’s who’ in the sports, fitness, and technology world. The concept of a GolfBoard was formulated when self-described snowboard addict Don Wildman, founder of Bally Total Fitness, had the original idea to use an electric skateboard to ride the steep slopes of his local Malibu course as a fun way to ‘get in some turns’ during the summer months.

Wildman had the good fortune to befriend surfing legend Laird Hamilton while on a visit to Hawaii. A periodic golf partner to the Wildman when the ocean is too calm for surfing, Hamilton was interested in the concept and wanted to see this idea progress. Enter EV entrepreneur Star Faraon, a surfing friend of Hamilton’s who happened to have been forging the concept for an all-purpose and high performance electric mountain board. Faraon, with friends Paul Hodge (CEO) and Mike Radenbaugh (Technical Director), teamed up to develop a highly robust and rugged electric mountain board that, with the influence of Wildman and Hamilton, was refined into today’s safe and easy-to-use GolfBoard.

Print2015-JK-Product_180Orion 45Orion 25

SPARTA, TN (March 2015) – It’s hard to know what to give your favorite dad for Father’s Day.  How about a gift that’s a win-win – a product that helps dads never lose their cool. An Orion Cooler keeps food and beverages cool and looks cool too. These premium coolers are especially appealing to outdoor enthusiasts, kayakers, anglers and hunters.

Orion Coolers have a number of features and innovations unique to the premium, rugged cooler market:

  • Multi-color, camo plastic blend exteriors make every single Orion cooler unique. Pick from Forest Camo, Jungle Camo, Sky Camo or Dorado
  • YakAttack gear tracks allow for adding accessories without drilling. Add holders for fishing rods, phones, cups, cameras, fish finders, GPS and more with RAM accessory integration
  • Four aluminum tie down points at each corner that double as bottle openers and two additional tie down points on either side for secure transport
  • Low-profile, camming latches that are hinging for ease of use and snag-free when loading or using the cooler as a fly fishing casting platform
  • Lockable via padlocks on the corners, both to secure the cooler and to seal it shut
  • A grippy standing pad comes standard with all Orion Coolers providing a stable, comfortable platform when standing or sitting.
  • Strong, motorcycle-style carry handles with reinforced climbing ropes provide long lasting comfort and sure grip in tough conditions
  • MADE IN USA for quality craftsmanship and rugged construction. Orion Coolers are molded by molding experts right next to Jackson Kayaks in Sparta, Tennessee
  • Constructed with a rugged, roto-molded polyethylene shell and at least 2” of insulation  for durable performance
  • A solid thermoformed plastic tray inside the cooler allows for drainage but won’t let smaller items fall through like they would with standard wire mesh trays found elsewhere
  • A removable, Princeton-Tec AMP1 light, provides lighting inside the cooler at night or remove it for use around camp at night. This Made-in-USA waterproof light easily twists on and off and includes a flood lamp cone to illuminate the cooler contents with soft light. Remove the light and cone and you have a high power LED light for use around camp, on the boat or anywhere you need it. It also has a bottle opener on it.
  • Smart, real-world sizing accommodates common items like wine, 2 liter bottles or a case of cans that can stand upright. They also fit on common hitch haul carriers, behind a kayak seat and within airline baggage requirements (model dependent)
  • Available in three sizes for 2015 Father’s Day gifts – Orion 25, Orion 45 and Orion 65.

The Orion Cooler 25 is compact and highly portable for shorter outings and day or weekend use. It’s easily transported by canoe, car or kayak. Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price is $369.

Well suited to a variety of tasks, the Orion 45 is the most versatile cooler in the line. Striking a nice balance between portability and capacity, the Orion 45 is well suited for everything from day use to week long adventures. Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price is $449.

The Orion Cooler 65 is the right size for longer adventures and bigger jobs where capacity starts to become a priority over portability. The 65 serves groups well for multi-day trips or well attended tailgate parties. It’s easily transported by canoe, raft, truck, or even small planes and has the capacity for quartered big game, larger fish and/or food for a week. Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price is $499.

“By working with our team members, dedicated outdoorsman, and industry partners, we’ve developed coolers with unparalleled performance and innovative features to enhance the users’ experience, land or sea, no matter where in the world their adventures take them,” explained Brand Manager Damon Bungard.
