Garia Golf Cars: Not your father's golf cart
LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Finally, someone has produced a very high quality golf vehicle that far exceeds the normal golf carts found at every golf course and those found in many private residences. Today at the PGA Fall Expo, which runs through Wednesday, September 2, 2009, the golfing world will discover that Garia is that someone. Gone are the days when the discriminating consumer will have to settle for those converted golf carts that cartoonishly resemble automobiles.
I recently had the good fortune to preview and test drive the Garia Golf Car and could not have been any more impressed. Sleek, sexy and virtually road-worthy, it is unlike anything else out there today. These vehicles are of Danish design and manufactured at Valmet in Finland, the very factory that produces several models of Porsche. Tellingly, the company does not call them golf carts, as they are serious pieces of equipment. The redesign of the chassis has moved the rear wheels to the very back of the vehicle which makes it handle like a sports car. Believe me, I put the test model through its paces on the golf course, turning at full speed on slopes and could barely feel the pressure of such a move.
It appears to me that every little detail has been scrutinized and made as well as possible. Naturally, nearly every interior luxury imaginable from plush, adjustable seating to heated, tinted windows to an in-dash refrigerator is available in standard packaging or can be customized to your particular tastes. I am a big man at 6′3″ and was impressed with the roominess of the interior. Never once did I bang my knees on the steering column while getting in or out. When I said earlier that these vehicles are virtually road-worthy, of course that also included such necessities as headlights, taillights, turn signals and the like. Even has a sun roof.
There is nothing wrong with the standard golf carts found at every golf course in America. They serve their purpose. But if luxury, quality, style and taste are your thing, and you sometimes drive your cart on the roads of your community, then the Garia Golf Car is what you want.
