Troon® is embracing the single-rider revolution with a newly formed partnership with Phat Scooters and several Arizona courses are already participating. Phat Scooters is a Tempe, Arizona-based company that produces a series of fun-to-ride, all-electric, single-rider scooters, including Phat Golf Scooters.
The growing single-rider movement naturally fits physical distancing practices, offers golfers a faster pace of play and has less impact on turf than a four-wheel golf car. Phat Golf Scooters also deliver an exciting new experience for golfers as they can quickly and individually drive to their ball. Phat Scooters’ HD Golf Scooter is a two-time winner of Golf Digest’s Editor’s Choice Award.
“We are thrilled to welcome Phat Scooters as a preferred partner,” said Mike Ryan, chief operating officer, Troon. “Single-rider rounds have increased exponentially at all of our facilities since the beginning of March. Moving forward, we believe this trend will continue as guests continue to observe physical distancing, while seeking new experiences in golf. Phat Scooters offer the ideal solution with their high-quality and fun-to-ride products.”
Phat Scooters are currently available for golfers to rent at numerous Troon-affiliated golf courses around Arizona, including Whirlwind Golf Club in Chandler and Wickenburg Ranch Golf & Social Club in Wickenburg.
Since releasing their innovative HD Golf Scooter in 2018, Phat Scooters leads the single-rider revolution with their dependable electric scooters, refined technology, and industry-leading customer service. Each HD Golf Scooter has a powerful yet silent 2000-watt electric motor, impressive hill climb, a best-in-class two-year warranty, and a battery that can last 36+ holes on a single charge. Earlier this year, Phat Scooters added to their golf lineup with cutting-edge course operations models, including caddie, food & beverage, marshal, and maintenance scooters.
“Being selected as a Troon preferred partner validates the shift in the golf industry towards cart alternatives and a faster pace of play. Now more than ever, players are seeking out golf facilities that offer Phat Scooters, and courses that already have a fleet of them are seeing improved profitability per round,” said Phat Scooters CEO Peter Johnson.
Each scooter model is precisely engineered to maximize performance and profitability with a small footprint, less wear and tear on turf than traditional golf cars, affordability, and unique branding opportunities. Adding the HD Golf as an alternative cart option attracts new golfers while allowing returning players to experience their favorite courses in a whole new way.
