An Australian designed electric golf buggy has won a 2013 Golf Europe product award.
The world’s smallest electronic golf trolley launched just over a year ago and now the Australian owned and designed QOD Golf has received the prestigious Golf Europe Product Award for Trolleys 2013 in Germany.
Judged by a panel of experts along with top European golf players and editors – QOD beat major brands across the award evaluation criteria to take home the title. The trolleys were judged on their functionality, degree of innovation, user friendliness and comfort, design and style, trend character and the cost-benefit ratio
Being a newly launched product, MD of QOD, Sydney based Collin Hiss, says the trolley is the result of seven years of detailed research, design and development.
“As a new-comer into the Golf Europe Product Awards, it was a complete shock that our product surpassed the extremely high standards and qualities set by and observed in the other European entries,” says Collin. “We are proud and honoured to have received the award for trolley of the year 2013.
QOD takes only a few seconds to assemble so golfers can go from car to course in less than a minute.
Collin explains, “Golf is a walking game. The lightweight of the trolley allows golfers to enjoy and benefit from the walk without having to lug their often heavy golf bags around.
“My doctor often suggested that I walk the golf course instead of riding in a golf cart, so this is essentially what the doctor ordered.”
This leading-edge electronic trolley continues to capture the attention and interests of golfers from around the world since it was released into the market. Currently, golfers in more than 10 countries across Europe, the Americas, Asia and Australia are enjoying the benefits of the QOD innovation.
