Once in a while someone comes up with a new idea or invention that’s used to play golf, but sometimes a new product comes along with enough potential to really take off. This brings us to Sun Mountain Motor Sports’ new product, called Finn Scooters. The Finn Scooter is a new single-rider electric cycle that was introduced at the PGA Show earlier in January and started showing up at courses this summer. It’s incredibly fun!

Developed by Rick Reimers, founder and owner of the long-pioneering golf equipment company Sun Mountain Sports, Finn Scooters has its roots in golf and the potential to grow beyond it. Finn Scooter is a two-wheeled, single-rider cycle with an electric motor and lithium battery that offers a comfortable and stable ride that leaves all who ride it smiling.
“The inspiration for Finn Scooters is the desire to play a faster round of golf,” said Rick Reimers. “Riding Finn is invigorating and sporty while encouraging ready golf.”
The golf bag sits along the center-line of Finn Scooter offering easy golf club access and riding stability. Finn Scooter has front and rear suspension for a comfortable ride and braking with hand-operated hydraulic disc brakes. The electric motor is in the rear wheel offering a sleek design. The lithium battery can go up to 36-holes on a single charge though charging after every round is suggested.
Finn Scooter travels as the same speed as a traditional golf cart, approximately 15 mph, and offers the opportunity to substantially speed up the pace of play by naturally encouraging ready golf with each player driving directly to his/her ball. With Finn, a sub-two-hour round of golf is within reach.
Finn Scooters has also recently released a proprietary app to unlock Finn for use and collect the usage fee in a hassle-free transaction.
Reimers has a well-deserved reputation for creating innovative golf products that become industry mainstays such as the golf bag with built-in legs and the golf push cart.
Finn Scooters is a product of Sun Mountain Motor Sports, an affiliate of industry-leading golf bag, golf push cart and golf outerwear company, Sun Mountain Sports. Sun Mountain Motor Sports is a new company dedicated to solving golf’s biggest problem: slow play. The company’s new products are designed to make golf fast and fun, with a goal of 18 holes in 2 hours or less. For more information visit www.FinnScooters.com.
