ALTHOUGH THE PATTERSON TRIO IS THE MAIN BUGGY USED BY OUR GOLFERS THERE ARE THREE MAJOR VARIANTS ON THE THREE WHEEL THEME
Handigolf introduce a new 4-wheel buggy--The Patterson Eventer
From the makers of The Trio buggy this machine has been introduced for paraplegic players who prefer to play one-handed using their other hand to grip firmly on the seat area of the buggy. It comes with a steel rail round the seat with two steel grip loops as standard and seat belts.
Players are allowed to add their own grip-assistance devices to this rail.
The four wheels give more stability and the seat has the same swivel possibilities as The Trio.
See the News Page for picture of it in use on the golf corse.
