SPRINGFIELD, Ohio — The cool factor just spiked at the Windy Knoll Golf Club in Springfield, Ohio.

The Golf Channel reported the course will begin using hovercrafts to allow golfers to maneuver greens (and water hazards, for that matter.)

“We wanted to be able to offer something no other course could,” Pete Duffey told the Golf Channel. “A way to further put Windy Knoll Golf Club on the map of public destination golf courses. It was an easy decision. When we saw them on YouTube, we said ‘We gotta have those!’”

The carts are set to be unveiled on July 27, but won’t be available to golfers until late August, the club’s website said.

The price of cool will cost you, however. It’s estimated to cost $230 per player to rent.

By the way, the club got the idea from pro golfer Bubba Watson, who had a hovercraft made for himself (video below).
