Surf the Earth!

GolfBoard is a single rider, all-wheel-drive electric vehicle designed to liven up a round of golf. By both speeding up the game and allowing users to enjoy a surf-like experience, GolfBoard is bringing much-needed innovation to the golf industry.

This Reg CF offering is made available through StartEngine Capital, LLC. This investment is speculative, illiquid, and involves a high degree of risk, including the possible loss of your entire investment.

$285,607.50 Raised


Co-Founded by fitness Icon Don Wildman, Laird Superfood CEO Paul Hodge, and electric vehicle guru Star Faraon, GolfBoard has quickly achieved global brand recognition.

Golf is in dire need of an industry-disrupting change in order to reclaim market share of the much sought-after younger millennial crowd who are looking for a more up-paced style of play.

With $16.5M in sales, we have deployed 3K units in 7 countries with over 129K registered riders enjoying over 1M rounds to date.



Reinventing the golf experience

We’re GolfBoard, the people bringing a new, exciting advancement to the game of golf. With our single-rider device, we help golfers have more fun while they speed up and add excitement to their rounds, and provide courses a brand new way to attract new paying customers. 

GolfBoard has proven to be popular for players of all ages — with over 32% of users coming from the over 50 demographic — and has piqued the interest of golfers worldwide thanks to viral videos viewed by tens of millions. With over 129k registered users, $16.5M in life-time sales, and 3,000 GolfBoards around the world, we believe we have developed a golf vehicle that will truly bring golf into the 21st century.

With GolfBoard’s proven commercial golf market adoption and strong traction with riders young and old, moving forward we plan to widely adopt a new revenue-sharing model which we believe will produce sustainable high margin recurring revenue for our Company as well as our clients.  We will provide GolfBoards to courses for zero or minimal upfront cost,  then share the daily rental fees these revenue share boards generate. We believe this business model will result in much higher profits over the long-term, plus it will be far easier to scale adoption as courses have no large upfront fees. 

Our revenue share model is capital intensive, as we will own the GolfBoards as opposed to the client. This capital raise will allow us to further grow our company-owned GolfBoard fleet, deploying more and more GolfBoards that we already know people love to ride.

The Problem

Golf is having trouble appealing to younger audiences and lacks innovation

The 21st century has not been kind to Golf. From 2002 to 2016 the number of regular golfers dropped from 30M to 20.9M, with ratings and equipment sales suffering as well. Additionally, people have been playing fewer and fewer rounds of golf, with 20-30% overall decreases in the past 10-15 years.

This decline in golf’s popularity is largely due to the slow pace of play and inefficiencies of golf carts, which force two riders per cart to waste up to 50% of their time waiting for their partner to find and hit their ball.

In today’s post-COVID-19 world, we believe the desire for single-rider vehicles is only going to increase, as consumer preferences surrounding shared spaces are altered. Additionally, social distancing requirements in some states which restricts only one rider per cart (when not family) has increased demand from golf courses looking to augment their current fleet. 

The Solution

The GolfBoard dramatically increases the pace of play and adds a boarding twist to the game

We have developed an all-wheel drive, personal golf vehicle that brings a fresh, exciting twist to the game of golf, without changing the fundamentals of the game itself. And unlike golf carts, there is little-to-no wear and tear on the turf, much to the delight of Golf Course Superintendents everywhere.

Additionally, in the new normal of the COVID-19 world, GolfBoards allow users to maintain their personal space while Surfing The Earth on their favorite course. The GolfBoard’s simple dual grip stability bar and small non-skid deck is far easier to sanitize between rounds than a much larger golf cart.

Millennials and Gen Z — these are the key demographic groups who represent the future of golf and have a widespread interest in board sports such as surfing and snowboarding. Our proprietary 4-wheel drive lithium-ion battery-powered board offers this very important demographic a familiar window that golf course can use to help attract more Millennials and Gen Zs to a sport they may have never considered before. We’ve seen this ability to help attract new players reflected in our GolfBoard registered rider statistics, as 39% of our 129,000 users are first-time visitors to the course.

Our opportunities have also spanned into the digital realm, as we’ve developed a convenient booking app for our users, where they can log on and reserve GolfBoards ahead of time, and find courses near them that host our boards.

The Market

Tens of thousands of courses looking for a fresh way to drive new traffic

Golf Monthly reports that there are around 15K golf courses in the U.S. (and another 15K abroad). With each and every one of them on the frontlines of golf’s war to regain players, they are all on the look-out for new innovations to reclaim their customer base.

Unlike the aging market for golf overall, we believe we've found a way to capture the attention of younger audiences, with 67% of our users representing the desirable under-50 demographic. This is a younger demo with a high lifetime value that courses have been dying to attract for years.

Our Traction

$16.5M in lifetime revenue and a proven, popular product

We have successfully brought the GolfBoard from a high potential disruptive concept to a globally recognized brand. At one time GolfBoard was deemed a novelty that would appeal to younger players, but in the years since our award-winning 2014 launch, golf management companies have embraced our unique and revolutionary offering, spending over $16M on 3K+ units worldwide.

We now have over 129K registered riders, who have already played over 1M rounds on our boards. The GolfBoard new rider registry has allowed us to build up a highly valuable database of users, featuring name, age, and email address, which enables us to pursue a low-overhead, highly effective marketing strategy for the Company and our clients.

Thanks to fantastic feedback and excitement from golf industry key influencers, we were awarded best new product of 2014 at the PGA Merchandise Show. GolfDigest also selected GolfBoard for its Best Club Transport Editors Choice Award providing worldwide recognition.

The contagious attraction of GolfBoard has generated a ton of viral success since its launch 6 years ago, with tens of millions of video views featuring GolfBoarders enjoying a round on one of our best-in-class product offerings.

Our boards are now welcome at many of the top golf courses in the world which are managed by companies like Club Corp., Billy Casper Golf, Discovery Land Properties, (including The World Famous Yellowstone Club), and Troon. GolfBoard is also very popular with independently owned and operated public courses with 20+ GolfBoard Showcase courses offering availability of fleets of 12 or more GolfBoards.

What We Do

An alternative to the sedentary golf cart

We give golfers a new option for speeding up their round, by allowing them to move quickly and precisely from shot to shot, without the sedentary, inactive shortcomings of a golf cart. GolfBoarding is a fun, fast, and much fitter way of enjoying any golf course, which helps even good golfers play better. 

As compared to walking, GolfBoard allows users to be highly active while speeding up the pace of play. In comparison to a golf cart, the individual-use nature of the GolfBoard allows riders to go directly to their own ball after each shot, which drastically cuts down the time spent navigating between two golfers with shots that frequently land on opposite sides of the fairway.

GolfBoard President & COO at Pronghorn

Golf course Superintendents welcome the use of GolfBoard as it is much lighter and more environmentally-friendly than standard carts, and is therefore allowed to go much closer to tee boxes and greens. Since GolfBoarders can go much closer to the tee box and green, any golfer with mobility issues also greatly prefers our turf-friendly offering.

Most importantly, GolfBoard is great fun. Just like other high action board sports, riders turn by shifting their body weight from side to side enjoying an amazing boarding experience in the middle of their golf game. At any time, GolfBoarders can choose to ride in a conserative skier stance or the more aggressive boarder style.

The Business Model

Distributed through sales, rentals, and revenue sharing programs

The Company has historically driven its revenue through the sale of personal and commercial use GolfBoards. Individuals usually order a single unit, and golf courses order a fleet of 4 to 8 boards. Our main focus moving forward is expanding our rental and revenue sharing programs which we believe will substantially accelerate the sales cycle and provide exponential growth. 

1) Sales Offerings

We have two direct sales offerings — the standard GolfBoard and the GolfBoard Pro/ResortBoard. 

  1. Standard GolfBoard sells for $6.5K and generates a 44% margin of $2,902

  2. GolfBoard Pro/ResortBoard sells for $7.5K and generates a 44% margin of $3,365

2) Rental Program

The average rental billing is $375/month per board. The typical course orders 4 rental boards for a 6 month season, which generates rental revenue of approximately $9,000. The company will typically invest an average of $1,200 per board for refurbishing and maintenance fees, creating a total margin of $4,200/46% per season.

3) Revenue Share Program

With our new revenue share program, golf courses will no longer have to make any significant upfront payments to have GolfBoards on their courses. By eliminating the downside risk of getting GolfBoards, the Company will be able to select to partner with those courses with the highest player volume and highest rental revenue potential.

By sharing the rental revenue 50% / 50% with its course partners, the Company will collect $375 per board per month providing the GolfBoards rent on average of just once per day. Through the company’s new revenue share program, revenue can increase up to $750 per board per month at an average rental frequency of twice per day, potentially doubling the margin vs renting or selling GolfBoards.

This new GolfBoard Revenue Share Program is expected to eventually become the Company's primary growth offering, hopefully creating sustainable high-margin recurring revenue. The Company projects it could generate a margin of over $3,000 per board per year at its highest volume revenue share partners. Please note these are best estimates and are subject to change depending on costs and the market. 

How We Are Different

GolfBoard is a US made, 4-wheel drive, single rider golf vehicle 🇺🇸

Our competitors are primarily made up of two-wheel scooters or electric motorcycles who have modified their products to service the golf industry. From the beginning, the GolfBoard has had a golf intentional design which has been the exclusive focus of every stage of our product development. We believe these modified competitor products do not stack up for the golf game.

We believe the instability of 2 wheel scooters leads to a lack of confidence in the safety of these products. This leaves GolfBoard with a majority share of the alternative offerings to the golf cart market. Only GolfBoard has emerged as a globally recognized brand.

Many of the top golf courses are underutilized due to declining demand. Our solution has proven to bring back golfers to our partner courses, in some cases resulting in an increase of up to 30% more rounds played. GolfBoard attracts new players to almost every course, plus the faster pace of play stimulates many regular golfers to play more often.  

GolfBoard Fans and followers

Everyone loves GolfBoarding

With over 129,000 registered riders, plus over 40,000 social media fans and followers, GolfBoard has a large, loyal and growing group of eager supporters. Young or old, first time user or experienced boarder, most everyone loves to go GolfBoarding. Additionally, with 300 to 400 personal use GolfBoards already sold, we have hundreds of ambassadors spreading the joy of Surfing The Earth every day. No other product in golf creates as much excitement and enthusiasm as the GolfBoard.

The Vision

We will go beyond just golf

After expanding our golf market share in the near term, we plan to leverage our advanced board designs to move into massive high potential adjacent offerings.

We believe our company is well-positioned for growth as the marketplace for electric and alternative vehicles further expands. 

The CaddyBoard has been developed with a bag stand on the front of the board plus a bag stand on the back in order to carry the clubs of 2 players. Designed specifically for Caddies, the CaddyBoard allows the Caddy to get around the course faster, and service their clients better while avoiding the physical strain of carrying 2 golf bags 18 holes. With the CaddyBoard, the Caddy can be on the tee box with their clients when they’re driving, then quickly get out in front to find their balls, measure distance, and select the right club.

The ResortBoard is designed for both urban use as well as backcountry trail riding - providing the ultimate adventure experience. With plans to first target resorts and vacation destinations who will use our resortboards for sightseeing and tourism, interest in our adjacent offerings is expected to quickly grow.

Enjoy GolfBoarding this holiday season

Happy holidays and thank you very much to all that supported our recent crowdfund offering. With investments of nearly $40k during the final month, we raised a total of $295K through our offering which closed on 11/26/2021. Throughout all our StartEngine campaigns, we have raised in total over $2.3M to fund operations and product development.

We are happy to report much of our supply chain challenges are now behind us and we have recently shipped 16 boards over the last few weeks, with more boards scheduled for delivery shortly. Our GolfBoard Pro is proving to be popular with commercial fleet buyers, with many repeat clients choosing our larger and higher performance model. The lighter and smaller standard GolfBoard remains the preference of many individual buyers because of the ease of transport and lower cost.

Having successfully worked through many COVID related challenges, and with many macroeconomic indicators now trending positive, our GolfBoard team is looking forward to having favorable tailwinds in the coming new year. Driven by growing popularity and adoption of golf, the global golf market size is expecting a compounded annual growth rate of 2.5% through 2027. With the golf industry increasingly turning to single rider vehicle options, combined with an increasing number of rounds played, GolfBoard is well positioned for growth. 

We hope you will find time to enjoy GolfBoarding this holiday season. Click here to find a GolfBoard course near you. Better yet, treat yourself or someone you love to a GolfBoard. For more GolfBoard information of any kind email Thanks again for your support and happy holidays.

Ideal for individuals who still need to social distance, the GolfBoard is a perfect way for courses to increase capacity while also increasing speed of play and providing a unique sporting experience unlike any other.

GolfBoard Teams Up with the 2021 World Amateur

GolfBoard has teamed up with Golf Tourism Solutions to promote the 38th Annual World Amateur Golf Tournament. With over 3,500 registered participants, the 2021 World Am will be the largest amateur golf tournament in history.  There are nearly 60 courses participating in the 2021 World Am which takes place August 30th to September 3rd in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and is the signature event of the year.

Golf Tourism Solutions emailed GolfBoard’s 100,000+ registered rider database promoting this year’s World Am and generated over 1,400 inquiries to participate. Additionally, invitations were sent to over 45,000 Myrtle Beach golfers, who were eligible to sign-up and win a free World Am entry sponsored by GolfBoard, generating over 900 registrants.

The 2021 World Am is a 5-day event, with over 14,000 rounds of golf played. All World Am participants and guests can experience GolfBoard firsthand every evening at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center, considered the World’s Largest 19th Hole, as well as rent GolfBoards at True Blue, TPC Myrtle Beach and World Tour Golf Links.

Exciting Product Advancements in GolfBoard Technology

All New High Capacity Battery Pack

After extensive product development and field testing, the Company will soon be introducing its GolfBoard V1.3 with an all new high capacity battery pack. This higher-powered battery pack, featuring LG lithium-ion cells, will be the Company’s 3rd generation battery since going to market in 2014. All V1.3 GolfBoards will have 48.8% more power than the original model and 12.2% greater power than V1.2 boards. This upgrade allows us to replace the previous internal 100-amp fuse with a convenient external 100-amp circuit breaker, as well as a battery on / off switch, for ease of servicing and storage during the off season.

This more powerful battery back will both increase the range of our entire GolfBoard product line, as well as improve overall product performance. V1.3 GolfBoards should consistently deliver 27 holes of usage on one charge on all but the most demanding courses, plus have improved climbing ability on steep hills or slippery terrain. This allows golf course operators to rent their fleet of GolfBoards for an 18-hole round plus a potential second 9-hole round without any recharging, or redeploy their GolfBoards for a 2nd 18-hole round with just under 1-hour of recharging.

The Company anticipates the marketplace will react very favorably to our generation 3 high-capacity battery pack, as this will improve range and performance of our current GolfBoard products by over 12%, plus offer several other improvements, all for just a 4.6% price increase.  These new battery packs will be reverse-compatible with all older model GolfBoards, allowing early GolfBoard adopters to upgrade to a more powerful battery and enjoy the improved range and performance benefits. This will improve client satisfaction while generating an increase in the Company’s replacement part revenue.

New Brushless Motor Advancement in Development

One of the operational challenges for the Company is in-field replacement of GolfBoard motors, which is generally required after 2 to 3 years of commercial use. While the Company offers free motor replacement service videos on-line, as well as free phone support, motor replacement is sometimes considered by some course operators to be beyond the competency of their golf course staff members. In these instances, the board sometimes needs to be shipped back to the factory or to one of our service centers for motor replacement, causing a lapse in the course’s ability to generate GolfBoard revenue.

In order to extend the lifetime of GolfBoard motors, the Company will soon begin field testing a brushless motor package which is compatible with the existing and previous GolfBoard designs. These newer motors should deliver the same speed (or higher if we choose), with greater torque and increased efficiency, resulting in increased reliability and longevity by eliminating brush and commutator erosion, potentially extending GolfBoard motor lifetime by years. 

Our objective is to provide a GolfBoard motor package that has at least a 3-year lifespan in commercial use. After 3 years, with their initial lease fully paid off, many of our commercial clients choose to trade-in their GolfBoards for the newest model. Our management team is very excited about the prospects of reducing, and possibly eliminating, the need for in-field motor replacement during the first 3 years of deployment, as well as the potential performance benefits of advancing to brushless motors. 

As we transition into post-pandemic sales and product strategies, our focus will continue to be on providing the highest quality products in the golf/resort/sporting transportation category. The technology advancements to a more powerful battery pack combined with longer lasting motors will help further elevate GolfBoards position as the best-in-class personal mobility vehicle for golf.

Hi Carol – So sorry for the lack of routine communication in the comments section of our Start Engine campaign page. I have not designated anyone on our team to monitor these posts, as most investors contact me directly by email and I respond personally. I am in daily contact with the investor service team at StartEngine, and they have been highly responsive to putting me in immediate contact with GolfBoard investors who want more information. So once again, my apologies for any delay in our response to you. Please feel free to reach-out to me directly anytime. Our Company does continue to raise capital through crowdfunding to support product development and grow our managed fleet inventory. While we have made great progress in advancing our board designs, there is still much we would like to do to further advance our best-in-class offering, as described in our recent 7/8/21 update. There are many great milestones achieved by the Company since GolfBoards launch in 2014 that demonstrate our growth potential and warrants the Company’s support by on-going investment: 1) Winner: Best New Product at the 2014 PGA Merchandise Show 2) Winner of the Golf Digest Best Golf Transport Device 3) Placement at approximately 300 courses worldwide 4) Now over 100,000 registered GolfBoard riders 5) 1,000,000+ GolfBoard rounds now played 6) Over 70M virial GolfBoard video views 7) A proven safety record, with a 0-insurance claim loss history 8) 3 patent awards 9) Over $14.5 M in total product and service revenue since launch We expect the single rider market for golf to continue to grow as golf cart alternatives such as GolfBoard become mainstream. With many key milestones achieved, along with our strong brand awareness, we believe GolfBoard is uniquely positioned for future growth, and hope investors like you will continue to support our mission to transform personal mobility.

Mr. Wildman, I invested in golfboard (via start engine), attended your shareholder meeting several years ago.....and since then I haven't heard a thing. Communication with investors is so important. Why would you not sent out frequent communication or monitor Start Engine chat? Surely that is just as important as spending our money. Can you please tell me the status of my investment? What is the timeline?

Cancel anytime before 48 hours before a rolling close or the offering end date.

Your info is your info. We take pride in keeping it that way!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
