Kangaroo's Legacy

Our company was born on the golf course. In summer of 1969, Kangaroo founder Bill Ganskopp, an avid golfer, played with a human caddie at least three times a week— on his home course, Red Fox Country Club in North Carolina. In autumn when young caddies headed back to school, Bill found pulling his golf bag or riding a cart disrupted his game. He thought "Why not motorize a pull cart so it could be steered lawnmower?"

Before long Bill was breezing around his course with his first motorcaddie prototype. Fellow golfers asked where they could get one. Kangaroo Products was born. Bill named his invention "Kangaroo" in tribute to mother kangaroo that carries her joey lightly and quietly, and to honor courses he'd played in Australia.
