THE GOLFBOARD LOOKS FUCKING AWESOME

9 Sep

 

I get very excited watching this. I hear all about how golf is on the decline these days and courses are closing down on the daily and it’s sad because I love golf. There’s a lot of talk about increasing the size of the hole so that the game becomes easier, people have more fun, and rounds take less time. I’m not all that sold on that idea because golf isn’t supposed to be easy and there would basically be a big asterisk next to any solid score you post on a large-holed course. But this? This is genius. An incredible way to make the game more appealing and fun without changing the game itself. Not exactly the most practical idea because the amount of mishaps, injuries, and liability would be through the roof but hey, I don’t own any golf courses so I’m 100% on board.

Upon further thought, I guess this is less a great idea and more a gimmick — a cool one for sure — but one that won’t do much if anything at all to save the decline in golf’s popularity because let’s face it, a lot of old people golf and old people can’t and won’t ride electric-powered skateboards. I guess old people aren’t really the issue though because they’re already golfing. If it’s an attempt to make golf seem cooler to the younger and future generations then maybe it’ll do something. But do we really want the golf course overtaken by extreme youngsters more interested in shredding up the course on the GolfBoard than actually playing golf? I say no.
