The all new GSC TOURER - A real champion on the turf
PGA Merchandise Show - Press Release January 2021 The all new GSC TOURER™ A real champion on the turf The Australian based company GSC™ has been a major player in the golf industry for over 10 years. Following the success of the GOLF SKATE CADDY™, it is now showcasing their latest innovation – THE GSC TOURER™ A standing position personal golf transporter, here to revolutionize the way we play. The GSC TOURER™ launches worldwide this week to the world at the PGA Merchandise Show and is an absolute showstopper!!! Benefits for players Not only is it fun to ride but golfers of all ages will experience a faster paced game. The GSC TOURER™ rider can ‘ride the turf’ cruising to their own ball, without having to wait for their co-player as in a traditional golf cart. In these crazy times of COVID and social distancing it makes it the ideal golf transporter. The GSC TOURER™ charges quickly and efficiently making it green. The GSC TOURER™ is engineered to carry a single player, plus a 44 pounds (20kgs), 10-inch (25cm) diameter pro-golf bag with ease over 18 holes on a grassy surface before it needs charging. Then, it simply plugs in to a normal power socket and charges like a mobile phone. The dual folding mechanism has also been engineered to fold down to fit in most family vehicles using our stainless steel “eagle claw” combined with our heavy-duty aluminum pole. This allows the quick release mechanism to ensure no time is wasted before the game starts and none when it is time to return to the clubhouse. Gentle on the turf Due to the relatively small ground contact area and a ground force pressure equal to a golfer on foot, it has been demonstrated that the GSC TOURER™ offers a significant reduction in course wear and tear and less maintenance compared to current popular modes of vehicular transport. The actual impaction per square meter compared to a golf cart is potentially a massive 82% less on the surface area of the golf course and similar or less than a golfer walking with a pull cart. Revolution of Rental Fleet solutions World’s first Golf transport device with our fully IOT integrated turnkey solution, allowing QR code scanning/rental fees can be collected using a fully customized app that can be tailored for individual course’s needs. Geo-fencing and speed reduction features on the backend of the app similar to the shared scooter industry. Reduce staff time required to process rentals, increase social distancing, reduce players contact to non-sanitized surfaces and other items. This is exclusively being offered for golf courses deploying fleets of 36+ units. Please contact us directly if you are interested in deploying a fleet using this revolutionary solution for your course’s rentals. Also inquire about our wireless charger docking system that we can deploy at your course for further reduction in your courses overheads. Good news for ‘time poor’ golfers When riding a traditional 2-person cart you are restricted to where you can drive and have to follow 2 sets of balls. This leads to increased distance as you would not be travelling in a direct path to your destination. Research has shown that the GSC TOURER™ leads to much faster games than a traditional 2-person cart. When riding a GSC TOURER™, the difference travelled is about the same as walking the course with a pull buggy. The speed of travel however is much faster. The GSC TOURER™ will allow players to play the course in 25% less time while travelling the flight path of the ball, something they cannot do with a traditional cart and allows them to really get to "know" and assess the hole and their next shot. People love The GSC TOURER™ due to its agility and speed. When riding the GSC TOURER™ the rider is balanced, athletic and in control with precision.
