A fill-size three-wheel golf cart that folds up into a compact 24x15x13 inches has been named as the ‘best new produict’ at the 2007 US PGA Golf Merchandise Show.
The award is made annually by The PGA of America at the show which was held last week in Orlando
Manufactured and marketed by Clicgear USA ( the new Cart was enthusiastically received by golf retailers from both the domestic and the international market who were especially intreagued by its quality and its abilty to fold up in seconds into a carry package at least 40 per cent smaller than any of it’s rivals
The PGA Merchandise Show is the golf industry’s annual exhibition of new products and this year attracted more than 45,000 buyers and exhibitors from around the world.
“We’re are truly honored and thrilled to have the Cart selected as ‘best new product’ at such a prestigious show (it attracted 45,000 buyers and exhibitors from around the world) and with such important buyers as the PGA Professionals,” said Todd Hansen, the national sales manager for Clicgear USA.
“We’ve already had a tremendous response, both from the trade and consumer, and expect this great award will only help spread the word about the Cart’s capabilities.”
Largely because they cause less strain on tired muscles, three-wheel golf push carts as opposed to the two wheel pull carts have been popular among golfers for the past several years, but most are bulky when folded, meaning golfers have a difficult time fitting both their clubs and their carts into the boots/trunks of their trunks.
Said Kevin Kimberley, the designer of the Clicgear Cart: “About three years ago, I was going on a golf trip with three friends. We all had brand new push carts and wanted to take them with us. We soon realized, however, that there was no way that the carts would fit into my SUV. They were just too big and bulky when folded, so they got left behind.”
After two years of design and engineering the problem has been solved. Four of the new Clicgear carts could have been taken on the golf tour by Kimberley and his friends with ease.
Constructed of oversized aircraft grade aluminum tubing, he said, the 18-pound Clicgear Cart is durable and lightweight yet retains sophisticated styling.
It’s dditional features include an easy to use Posi-Lock handbrake, an umbrella holder, 12-inch pneumatic tires, a beverage holder and full-size console with ample storage.
Built to exacting standards of quality and finish, the Clicgear Cart folds and unfolds in less than five seconds and can carry any size golf bag.
It will be available at golf pro shops, golf specialty retailers, sporting goods retailers as well as from online golf retailers nationwide.
It comes in five colors – Black, Blue, Silver, White and Orange – and carries a suggested retail price of $229, but is typically priced under $200.
