GolfBoards provide a new and exciting way to play golf all while keeping the spirit of the game. GolfBoards provide an adventurous new experience and fun way to navigate the golf course. Similar to snowboarding and surfing, you can now surf the golf course. GolfBoards are not only fun and easy to ride, but they decrease your time of play. Now, when someone is smiling at the end of their round, you won’t know whether they shot well or rode well!

It's the season when there are frost delays at the Links. The average 1st frost in Glen Ellyn occurs October 6th. Cold nights in the Fall increase the chance frost will form on the golf course turf. If carts or foot traffic are allowed on the course while there is frost, there may be significant damage to the turf.
