Winter is here, so golf might not be the first thing on your mind. If you’re like me, then you probably don’t think about the sport too much anyway. I’ve played a few rounds and haven’t the patience to actually get good at it. Then again, if you have a Golf Ball Launcher you don’t really need to do too much practicing.
The Golf Ball Launcher is exactly what you’d expect it to be. It’s a device that launches your ball (up to around 300 yards) so you don’t have to mess with those silly clubs (though you may still need a putter for the green). The launcher is powered by an air compressor, which will give you another reason to take a cart instead of hoofing it across the entire course. If you want to feel like you’re actually putting some effort into things, you can opt to use a hand pump instead.
Unfortunately the makers are still working to iron out the final design and working with golf courses to allow these to be used on the premises. Expect to pay about $800 for one when they do hit the market.
