Surfs Up at Lincoln Hills


Guests are carving up the fairways at Lincoln Hills Golf Club. 

Normally that statement might strike fear in a General Manager’s heart, but Ryan Peterson is all smiles.

And so are the golfers.

Thirty miles northeast of Sacramento, Lincoln Hills is among the first in the area to feature the exciting GolfBoard, the first and only substantive, surf-inspired, motorized golf vehicle built specifically for golf.  Guests can’t get enough of the fun and fast experiences, cruising over the rolling terrain of the Billy Casper-designed layout atop the innovative board.

“Everyone is increasingly opting to ‘surf the earth’ on GolfBoards,” says Peterson.  “The thrill of GolfBoarding is changing the future of the game; our golfers enjoy them so much, we can barely keep them in the cart barn.”

GolfBoarding is flat out fun. 

Conceived by Bally Total Fitness founder Don Wildman and legendary surfer Laird Hamilton (pictured on the left surfing the fairways, not an 100-foot wave), GolfBoards are ultra-durable and built with a safety-first and user-friendly mantra.  

Powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, users turn by intuitively shifting body weight in a carving motion akin to snowboarding.  Golfers can even customize their board settings, adjusting speeds from 6 to 10 mph via a simple, one-touch switch.

So if you want a more active alternative to riding in a cart, give GolfBoarding a try.  You get a better workout, have more fun and play quicker all while looking pretty darn cool.
