Gohemian Vehicle Co.’s Turf Cruiser™ was born, like many great innovations, of necessity. After many years of playing contact sports, Chris Allen, Gohemian’s founder, discovered golf, and soon became passionate about the game, playing every weekend and squeezing a round in, whenever he could, after work.
Because he had a back injury, Chris took a cart instead of walking. All was well and good except there often wasn’t enough time to get in a full round, especially during the week. For Chris, having to stop at 15 or 16 holes because there wasn’t enough time was frustrating.
Then, one evening, riding along in a two-seater cart, heading down the first fairway, Chris had his aha moment. He realized he didn’t want to drive to his buddy’s ball. He wanted to go directly to his. He and his buddy should both have his own set of wheels! Every golfer should at least have the option/choice.
Always the athlete, Chris immediately had a second thought: Why not make those wheels something that will offer good exercise—maybe something you could pedal. So he started researching and soon had his answer: an electric-assist vehicle. After many years of engineering and refinement, Chris’s solution was born—the Gohemian Turf Cruiser™, our hybrid golf vehicle.
