FourStar Golf Cruiser … now an even better way to get around the course

GOLFERS will do just about anything to continue playing their favourite game and one of the very good choices for older players experiencing some injury or mobility issues is a single seat electric cruiser.

The FourStar Golf Cruiser, which has recently undergone a number of enhancements, is one such vehicle and is one of the most popular options for those needing a bit of help getting around the course.

Designed and built with golf in mind, the FourStar Cruiser is small, nimble, light and powerful and allows golfers to cruise around the course with ease and comfort.

Golfers can remain mobile and increase their speed of play. A big benefit is that being a single seater a golfer can concentrate on playing their own ball. You’re not in a cart zig zagging all over the course looking for another’s ball. (It can be even worse if you’re on a course that restricts double seater carts to designated pathways and you’re having to walk back and forth from balls with three clubs in hand because you’re not sure of the distance.)

ASG pays regularly with a couple of older golfers who have purchased FourStar Cruisers in recent years and both are delighted with their vehicles. One had knee surgery that threatened his playing future while the other had some overall health issues that made some sort of motorised transport solution a must.

We were amazed that one of our playing partners was able to fit his cruiser, with the help of just a couple of ramps, into the back of what is only a relatively small-sized station wagon.

The other only lives 500 metres or so from the course so it’s just a matter of out of the garage and down the footpath to the club. None of that time consuming and annoying packing and unpacking of golf clubs. The cruisers can also be transported easily by a Tilt-Carrier, Aluminium ramps or trailer.

With just a couple of ramps Tony McRae from Jamberoo Golf Club has no trouble getting his Cruiser into the back of what is only a small/medium size station wagon.

Once at the course the FourStar Golf Cruiser is a breeze to operate. They’re actually fun to ride so you don’t really need an extra reason to add one to your golf game other than to increase overall enjoyment. We all know that as you get on a bit the fresher your feel the better you play.

The company says over the past four years some 30 quality and performance improvements have been made to the FourStar Golf Cruiser (including Japanese quality, quiet, lubrication free bearings, motorcycle drive chain, dirt guard, gearbox, helical drive gears among others).

As of September 2016 new models will also have the following major enhancements:

  1. Battery Charger

A new Power Focusing Technology Smart Charger, is now available and is made especially for the FourStar Golf Cruiser. It will be standard equipment on all new golf cruisers from September 2016.

It offers automatic sensing of the state of charge of the batteries, and can be left on indefinitely to charge the batteries and maintain them in tiptop condition. This will also take the guesswork out maintaining the batteries, extending their life, and avoid under or overcharging them. It also eliminates the need for a timer switch and/or monitoring the batteries being charged.

  1. Electrical Controller

In addition to the new battery charger, all FourStar Golf Cruisers will be fitted with Curtis Controllers from spring 2016. Curtis are the world leading brand of electrical controller, and apart from reliability and widely recognised quality, they will offer automatic down-hill braking, increasing safety and vehicle control, and reducing brake pad wear.

  3. Hi I’m after a golf cruiser do you have a business in Perth where I can obtain one and the cost please cheers Trevor

  4. Hi There, i just recently acquired a secondhand fourstar golf trike. I tested it on the course not long ago and it started to show low battery sign around the 14th hole. Could you please advised all the possible reasons why that could happen? I did charge it fully prior – im a heavy person so i think i take it to its maximum capacity of 150kg including the bag – i didn’t turn it off to look for my ball or to take my shot – i used it on high the whole time. Just want to make sure I’ve ruled everything out before i replace the batteries.

  5. Hi Daniel,
    Thanks for the comment. We’ll let the FourStar Golf Cruiser experts at Electric Vehicles Oceania know about your experience and they will no doubt get back to you directly with some advice.

  6. For Julie regarding the I-M4 Golf buggy, we can supply them here and via our Victorian distributors, along with parts and service work. Please call John Lord on 0417 679 398

    For Daniel and his secondhand fourstar golf trike low battery problem, we could test and check the current and voltage of the batteries if you can get to us easily in Northmead (near Parramatta), but if not your local battery shop could test them for you. There’s also a lot of good technical information on the trikes here:
    The main thing is to always keep your batteries in a charged state, ie. not discharged, and don’t overcharge them either. For this we have recently introduced a “Smart” charger and small wiring loom adaptor. Any othe help needed, please call Toby Lord on 0401 500 440

  7. I have a golf trike and I have the problem that when I get home I am chaffed on the inside of my legs, like I have been horse riding all day. Is there a seat, either original or aftermarket that is adaptable to purchase to fit over/on the existing seat?
    Also where is a service point in Brisbane?
    Hope you can help.

  8. Chris,
    I’ll draw the attention of the people at EVO to your comment and no doubt they will get back to you.

  9. Hi Chris,
