National celebrity and Channel Seven journalist Grant Denyer is carting across the plains of Nullarbor in an effort to be the first man to successfully navigate the worlds longest golf course in a golf car.
Although golf cars are generally made for courses, Nullarbor is different. This unique course spans a distance of 1365 kms, starting at Kalgoorlie (WA) and ending at Ceduna (SA).
The course has holes in each participating town along the Eyre Highway and has been one of Western Australia's leading tourist attractions since it came to fruition in 2006.
Golf Cart World, NSW, dealer for the E-Z-GO brand in Australia, supplied the Sunrise weatherman and sporting enthusiast with a modified E-Z-GO RXV.
The petrol E-Z-GO RXV has been modified to reach speeds of up to 65 kph and has also had custom tyres fitted to withstand the vehicles pace on this brutal road.
David Smith of Golf Cart World said this vehicle was modified to not only get across Nullarbor, but to do it quickly.
"Grant needed the vehicle to travel a significant distance in a short time,"
On his twitter account Mr Denyer said "1380km across the Nullarbor... Who said golf isn't an extreme sport."
To keep an eye Grants journey watch Sunrise (Channel 7) from 6 am to 9 am.
