ORLANDO, Fla – Forget about hiring that extra set of hands to carry around your clubs next time you tee up at Walt Disney World. The resort unveiled what it’s calling the “robo-cart.”

Disney Golf officials said the small robotic golf cart uses GPS and Bluetooth technology to transport your clubs safely around the golf course.

In order to use the technology, golfers will clip the cart’s small transmitter onto their belt or waistband, and the cart will follow a few paces behind. Disney said the new carts will be available at the Palm, Magnolia and Oak Trail courses at Walt Disney World.

“They are ideal for Disney’s Oak Trail golf course, a 9-hole walking course that appeals primarily to families and younger golfers, however, they are also available if you want to walk the 18-hole Magnolia and Palm championship courses” officials said on Disney’s blog. “Walt Disney World Resort is one of only a few places in the surrounding area where you’ll find these robotic carts in use.”

The robo-carts are designed by Club Car, and are available to rent for only $10 in addition to other golfing fees. Disney said the carts are also equipped with a beverage cooler, cup holder, sand bottle and USB port.
