Buggy Types

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

The 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.

The buggy is shown here with the seat level and in its lowest position


Here the buggy is shown with the seat in the highest position and the seat fully tilted. Any position between these two extremes is possible using the two independent actuators on the seat support frame.


This buggy needs a purpose built trailer and one is shown on the News Page with an indication of sponsors and manufacturuers

A few players have been lucky enough to aquire access to this buggy due to personal funding and generous donations.The Foundation has a loan unit that is available for trial purposes and this has recently been to Northern Ireland and North Wales.It is currently in use in Bedfordshire.

This buggy is shown below in its purpose built trailer (see News Page for more details and photos).

How to change or test the batteries

First raise the seat using the manual Allen key then undo all the screws holding the main body and pull it off backwards.

Slacken the two pivot screw at the rear of the seat mechanism and remove the two screws at the front of the mechanism.

Remove the two vertical interior "mudguards" and then swivel the seat mechanism upwards and support it as shown on the photo above.

Disconnect the battery terminals and lift each one out using the two rope handles at the side.
