Remember that amazing hovercraft golf cart Bubba Watson was rolling around in a few months ago -- the one that tried to break the Internet?

Well, you might get to drive one of your own sometime in the near future.

According to Golf Channel, "Windy Knoll Golf Club in Springfield, Ohio, will become the first course in the United States to have two hovercraft carts available for public use."

The course's managing director, Pete Duffey, said “We wanted to be able to offer something no other course could. A way to further put Windy Knoll Golf Club on the map of public destination golf courses. It was an easy decision. When we saw them on YouTube, we said ‘We gotta have those!'"

That will certainly put your course on the map.

The article goes on to say that the hovercraft is similar to those used by the US Air Force and at Disney World. Quite the disparity there, no?

According to this USA Today article, the hovercraft only takes about three weeks to build.

I asked my boss if I could move to Ohio.
