PGF Personal Golf Fan Review

PGF-Personal-golf-fan

Every golfer has ran into those days where the sun just beats down on you while you are out for a round of golf. Depending on which region of the United States you live in, golfers can be playing in 110 degrees plus humidity. Now that is really hot. What if there was a product out there that could help you enjoy the game just a little better.

Golf Life had the chance to try out a cool new product called PGF or Personal Golf Fan. The PGF won the 2013 PGA Inventor’s Spotlight in Orlando at the 2013 PGA Merchandise Show.  Now I know what you are thinking. Well I will stop you there, this isn’t just another product on the market for golfers to buy. I will tell you why:

PGF

Cynthia Wark, the creator of the Personal Golf Fan, and I had a wonderful conversation beforehand about if this product made sense for me test out since I live in Colorado where we dont have humidity. I told her that since we were in the middle of a crazy heat wave where temperatures were reaching in the triple digits that it made perfect sense.  In fact, when I took the PGF out to the course to test it out the temperature was at 103 degrees. I don’t know about you but I seem to golf a lot better cool and collected, not hot and miserable.  I found the best time to use the PGF is while waiting for a slow group ahead of me to hurry along.  Instead of sitting stagnant and waiting, I was able to kick back in my golf cart, cool down and wait patiently for my turn.

PGF-powerThe PGF has 2 settings.  Push once for Low/Normal which works great or push twice for High for those extreme temperatures.  The high setting will blow 20mph wind on your face.

PGF-battery

The PGF high performance lithium-ion battery pack is good for 2,000 charges and will provide power up to 6.5 hours and the battery charges in less than 3 hours.  That’s more than enough to last an entire round.  It has a brushless ball-bearing motor that the company says will last for more than 10,000 hours.

pgf-in-cup-holder

It comes with multiple cup adapters to make sure you can fit your PGF in any golf court you might encounter.  (I must note that they are even creating a adaptor for push carts).

PGF-adjustable

You can also adjust the angle of the fan to make sure the fan blows cool air where you want.

To recap here are the PGF Specs:

  • When the fan is turned on it feels like 20 mph winds.
  • Has a run time of 6.5 hours on regular speed and just over 3 hours on high speed.
  • Designed to fit 5 different types of golf carts
  • Comes in at a height of 19 inches and weighs about 2 lbs
  • The lithium-ion battery will not lose charge over time

The one negative I found about the PGF is the cost.  They have the price set at $199.99.  That is pretty high when you say it out loud.  However, they break it down into simpler numbers. So, if you golf 100 rounds per year the PGF will only cost you $2.00 per round! The more you golf, the lower the cost of comfort becomes. If you spread the cost over the life of the battery, it’s only $0.10 per round to keep you cool, comfortable, and focused on your game!

For all you non believers it gets even better.  PGF offers a 10-Day Money Back Guarantee for Online Orders.  This is the perfect opportunity for you to try the product at your own local golf course in the actual weather elements you may face.  I know this worked great in Denver with 103 degree weather but different areas offer differ climates.  Try it for yourself.
