The MGI Zip Navigator remote control golf cart has proved to be an essential investment for those looking to get active and fit. The caddy allows golfers to walk the course, stay in control, and take strokes off their game.
Kicking off the Australian summer saw MGI Golf down at the Victorian PGA Championships with young pro David Micheluzzi taking on the tournament with his MGI Zip Navigator electric caddy. Native to Cranbourne Golf Club and used to the greens of Peninsula Kingswood and Metropolitan, David Micheluzzi had been aware of MGI Golf for some time and he was eager to take on his next tournament with his new MGI electric golf cart.
After 18 holes in the rising heat of a mid-December morning, David told us his experience with the MGI Zip Navigator electric cart was ‘”really good, especially around the legends course because it is so hilly the Navigator does all the hard work and lets you focus on your game. The thing you don’t realise until you use a MGI Zip Navigator is the toll of playing a round when you don’t use one. Using a push cart puts a lot of strain on your body”. For his golf game, David says the MGI Zip Navigator electric caddy “makes it more fun and it’s easy to pack away. It just makes life a lot easier”. “If you are playing hilly courses, you don’t have to lug the bag around. You can just let the golf cart go and you can control it with the remote. It’s so simple.”
The ease on the golfer and control of the remote are the reasons why many are leaning towards buying a remote control caddy as one of their initial big purchases when venturing into the sport. Regardless of age or experience. David Micheluzzi highly recommends the product. “It’s so good, it’s such a good investment. It’s easy to store and transport, and its just simple to use. Anyone can use it.” David wasn’t the only one taking the course with their new MGI Zip Navigator at the end of 2021, with some notable Australian and US legends upgrading their game in a major way.

In Australia MGI Golf has gained more popularity with frequent mentions on NOVA FM morning show Chrissy, Sam and Browny. The MGI Zip Navigator became the latest golf investment for AFL Legend Jonathan Brown. The All-Australian forward played 256 games for the Brisbane Lions Football Club where he won 3 Premierships as well as collecting the Coleman medal in 2007. In heavy debate with co-star Sam Peng over the need for a electric golf cart at his age, Brown reassured listeners that his MGI Zip Navigator “made the walk around a golf course even more enjoyable, even on a bad day.” Noting the clever design and functionality, he remarked that “it is very reliable and easy to set up before each round” and for players of all experience and age groups he would “highly recommend” the investment.
