Robot caddy schleps golf clubs by remote control, and can even wash your balls

David Fay, Executive Director of the United States Golf Association states "We strongly believe that walking is the most enjoyable way to play golf and that the use of carts is detrimental to the game. This negative trend needs to be stopped now before it becomes accepted that riding in a cart is the way to play golf."

If you prefer to walk rather than ride on the golf course, but don't want to schlep your own bag of clubs or pay someone else to schlep for you, consider a robot caddy.

The Hillcrest Special Edition from Kangaroo Motorcaddies has a rechargeable battery that should carry your clubs through 18 holes, and has a remote control, automatic braking, a fourth wheel to keep it steady on hills, a scorecard holder, and a cup holder. Options include a seat, bumper guard and ball washer. It takes about a minute to set up or take apart, and fits even in a small car. Base price is $2500. Other models are available.
