Does Phat Golf offer seasonal lease options?
We do offer seasonal lease quotes for our clients.

What is the average rental price a Phat Golf Scooter?
We can’t tell you what to charge for Phat Golf Scooters rentals, but keep in mind that two Phat Golf Scooters cost less than one golf cart. In some markets they do charge a premium and they are certainly more fun than a standard cart. We hope they attract some new players to your course and we hope they help with speed of play.
Do the scooter units require assembly?
Yes, just a bit. The handlebars and the bag rack will need to be bolted on. Pretty simple.
How many rounds will the Phat Golf HD last between charges?
The Phat Golf Scooter HD is powered by a 20-amp lithium battery. It is the same type of battery used in Tesla autos. Fully charged it should go 36 holes but this can vary by rider weight, rider style and course terrain. It is rated for 1000 charges. You can also buy spare batteries and because they clip in and out and they can be charged separately, you can really run these units all day. It is always better to provide a bump charge of 30 to 45 minutes between rounds as this will optimize battery performance. Our batteries are safe and provide a minimized carbon footprint.
What type of motor does the Phat Golf HD use?
We use a commercial grade brushless motor. It is composed of the best magnet material, high quality coiled silicon steel sheet, precision bearings and a high commercial grade motor shaft. It is strong and durable in terms of power and bearing capacity.
How long does it take to charge the battery and how long should a normal battery last?
The battery can be fully charged in 6 hours. The battery should last 1000 rounds of golf.
Does temperature affect the battery?
The battery will function normally between 14 and 131 degrees Fahrenheit.
How do we know if a battery is getting low?
The dashboard features a 4-grid indicator light system to let you know the battery level.
How fast do Phat Golf HD units travel?
We have three speeds. 8 MPH, 13 MPH, and 19.8 MPH. We suggest 13 MPH for golf. The speed settings can be locked.
What is the weight limit on the Phat Golf HD?
Maximum carrying capacity is 350 lbs. The stable load of the unit is one person. Please do not allow more than one person to operate or ride the scooter at a time.
What are some of the safety features of the Phat Golf HD?
The Phat Scooter is extremely easy to ride for riders of all ages. The tires are nearly 10 inches wide and along with the low center of gravity and disk braking it is extremely safe. We also feature a power off function. When the brakes are applied the power to the motor is stopped.
Is the Phat Scooter HD waterproof?
The units are designed to withstand normal wet conditions on a golf course and they can be used in the rain. The units can be sprayed off with water for cleaning. They are not designed to be submerged in water.
What is the weight of the units?
The Phat Golf HD weighs 140 lbs without a bag rack and 170 lbs with a bag rack. It impacts the course much less that normal golf cart. Less compaction means less maintenance, most superintendents love this idea!
What type of terrain will the Phat Golf HD handle?
The Phat Scooter will handle hills with up to a 30% grade and is designed to comfortably handle the irregularities of golf course terrain. However, the Phat Golf HD is not an all-terrain vehicle and should not be used as such.
What type of safety training should we offer at our course?
We will give you an online link to our safety and training video. It is about 3 minutes. We suggest that you have your customers watch the video. We even have a digital sign able safety waiver and an online storage system that only you can access. It comes in a kit that you can post on your website or have available on a computer or tablet in your shop.
Can I order now and have delivery scheduled for Spring?
Yes, we can schedule any delivery date and lease payment schedule you desire.
Do I need special insurance?
We are not in the insurance business but believe you should ask your individual carrier.
Who sets the rental rate and what is considered a round?
The course sets the rental rate and a round may be 9 or 18 holes.
How do you know how many times the Phat Scooter goes out?
We use a GPS cellular tracker to count the rounds. We do rely on the operator’s honesty and only use this if our round count is more that 5% off your stated rounds per month. Billing is done at the end of each month. We do understand that Pros and staff may be allowed some courtesy rides and hope they enjoy the Phat Scooters.
What will Phat Scooter do to help me get this off the ground at my club?
We will provide signage and a great HTML to send to your membership. We can also provide video links and a digital press kit you can use to send to your local papers and magazines. We will also send out a national announcement in the Golf Wire. Also, we find that if they are parked in a conspicuous place that they garner a lot of attention.
We offer lease or purchase options for qualified partners.
