Onewheel on the golf course.

Has anyone tried to use their Onewheel on a golf course? Would be a fun way to ride for hole to hole.

So basically "Yes" OW works well. You should ask permission from the Pro first and if he OK with it you will be good to go - at least for 9 holes. I found that my Pro didn't really understand what I was proposing and the starter's comments were simply - "I hope your life insurance is paid up - that thing looks sketchy". But then when I rode off, they were quite impressed. OW-ing golf requires you to be comfortable with off-roading to a decent level because you also have a golf bag strapped to your back and that can change your CG a little bit. I have watched my battery level after the turn (9 and 10th hole) and was at 35 - 40% so I figured it wouldn't last the whole 18 holes. My solution was to change out to a second OW in the parking lot OR to find a couple charging locations at the bathrooms around holes 8 and 12. 2 - 10 minute charges work. Of course if you have the new XR, that battery should last the whole round. This summer, I will try out my new Carvepower rig to charge a couple times during the round. I will be nice that I won't have to find a power socket now that I have the rig.
For courses where mid-round comes by the parking lot, I will continue to swap out a fresh OW. For the courses where the turn is not near my car, I will use the Carvepower.
The only other comment is that on wet grass be careful that the Vega slick doesn't lose its grip. Using a treaded tire may be better in these circumstances (or stay on the cart path when the fairways are wet).
Last but not least - I am assuming you are golfing with the OW. If you just wanted to try to OW on the golf course with out golfing - that may be difficult and the course operator may not let you on since there are other golfers playing. In the off-season, no one is on the course. Last weekend was a warm day so I bombed through all 18 holes on the cart path. It was super fun and no problems with range because I didn't stop/start or go on the grass like I do in the summer time.

@gadgetrider I just rode my first course last weekend. Smaller place but yeah lots of hills and turns and the view was nice. But also a ton of goose shit! Keep that fender on!
