Air Conditioned Carts and Segway Human Transporters Keep Palmetto Dunes Resort Light Years Ahead
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC - If HG Wells was a golfer he might have imagined a future where sweltering rounds of golf are a thing of the past. No more sticking to cart seats or lugging overfilled golf bags on a slow sweaty meltdown to the 18th hole-a future where golfers cruise effortlessly from shot to shot in breezy cool comfort and hi-tech convenience.
He might have imagined today's Palmetto Dunes Resort.
In keeping with owner-operator Greenwood Development's cutting-edge philosophy, Palmetto Dunes is introducing two new state-of-the-art amenities to all three courses. Golfers at the Arthur Hills, Robert Trent Jones and George Fazio courses now have the option to ride in air-conditioned comfort with the Coolwell G2 Climate Control System or in futuristic style on a Segway Golf Transporter. Palmetto Dunes Resort is the only public access facility to offer these unique and innovative products.
"The response has been great," says John Betts, Vice President of Resort Operations. "Our goal has always been to create a customer-oriented environment at Palmetto Dunes and to offer the very latest products and amenities available, so the Coolwell G2 and Segways are a perfect fit."
The Coolest Golf on the Island
For hot island days, the Coolwell G2 units will keep Palmetto Dunes golfers cool from the first to tee to the 19th hole. Designed to mount on a golf cart, the G2 unit is a compact air cooler and, with the flick of a switch, a heater-making it ideal for South Carolina's hot summers and cool winters. It also features a built-in beverage cooler compartment that keeps drinks cool and will even cool down warm drinks.
"If our customers are comfortable," Betts explains, "they'll enjoy their round of golf even more-something we consider of the highest importance."
The Coolwell G2 is a true air-conditioner-not an evaporative cooler or misting system. It strips heat and moisture from the air and directs cool, dry air from a block of ice through a tube which is vented onto the back of the neck, It can cool the air up to 50
