Paragolfer makes playing 18 a breeze for the disabled

Life is markedly challenging for the disabled. But what’s always impressed me is how they never let that challenge really define who they are or limit the life they live. And when technology helps in that regard, so many of life’s passions – namely golf – suddenly come into view. And with Paragolfer, it’s flat out the truth.

ParaGolfer is all terrain, going anywhere the ball goes.

ParaGolfer is all terrain, going anywhere the ball goes.

Paragolfer is a three wheeled buggy which has a rising seat to take the occupant from a sitting to standing position. The seat has chin and waste belts to keep the golfer balanced and in the seat and the buggy is fully all terrain, meaning it can go in and out of sand traps, high grass, wherever the ball may end up. And it’s design is gentle on the greens as well, making the Paragolfer easy for courses to embrace.

But it wouldn’t surprise me if the technology that opens up golf to the disabled, will open other sports as well. Cost is steep at this point, about $20,000 US, but for the freedom it offers, it’s money well spent for the disabled sportsman.

Do you have any used Paragolfer’s that are less than the 20,000 new scooter you show?
Any where in Nashville that the scooter can be found?
