Club-Shaped Device Brings To Mind Rodney Dangerfield’s Dancing Character
Remember that scene in the movie where Rodney Dangerfield turns on a stereo and starts dancing in the middle of the fairway to Journey’s “Anyway You Want It” song?
Well you can do that too – if your fellow golfers don’t throw a fit like Judge Smails, that is – with a new Bluetooth speaker that fits in the golf bag. Called Sound Caddy, it’s even shaped like a driver.
What’s next, a golf bag that doubles as a keg of beer!?
“Sound Caddy is an up and coming technology brand devoted to exhuming the game of golf from its stuffy past, aiming to to attract a whole new player demographic who may want to enjoy the challenge of the game while also having a good time,” the company stated in a press release.
“The Sound Caddy looks just like a typical golf club, but functions as both a powerful Bluetooth speaker for blasting one’s jams, while serving as a convenient portable charging dock in one.”
It is waterproof, detachable (for taking into the clubhouse or the 19th hole after a round for a few rounds of another kind, no doubt), it comes with with two built-in USB ports and one micro USB port for quick charging of cell phones or smart devices and is wireless.
As far as the sound quality goes, PubClub.com has not tried it out, but we do have a small speaker of about the same size that puts out remarkably good sound. It lasts for about an hour; without testing we don’t know the duration of the Sound Caddy. Perhaps it even charges itself with the charging dock. The company claims a 15-hour charge time.
Of course, as any golfer will tell you, it’s not recommended to play music while on the golf course. Or even on the practice tee or putting green.
Also note while it looks like a golf club, it is not a golf club. “Our warranty doesn’t cover stupidity,” the company humorously states on the product’s website.
The speaker sells for $129 on the Sound Caddy website, soundcaddygolf.com.
