Golfers at a northern Minnesota course can now ditch the cart for an electric motorcycle.
Giants Ridge in Biwabik, which is in Golf Digest's Top 100 public courses in the country, has announced that it's making Finn Cycles an option for players.
Rather than your typical golf carts, players can instead make their way around the course on a two-wheel electric motorcycle, powered by a lithium battery that can go 36 holes on a single charge.
They travel at the same speed as a regular golf cart – up to 15 mph – with players putting their golf clubs along the center line of the cycle.
Their introduction is designed to "substantially speed up" the pace of play, given that players can go directly to their own ball, rather than having to take a cart to the balls of the two riders.
Giants Ridge is charging $21 plus tax to rent one of the bikes, with those renting being shown a short training video before jumping on. The resort says it's already seen "high demand" from younger players.
"The Finn Cycle adds yet another thrilling and sporty element to our world-class resort courses," said Director of Golf John Kendall
Giants Ridge is home to two championship courses, The Quarry and The Legend, which are found just over a 3-hour drive from the Twin Cities metro.
