Our Story

Kangaroo Employees

Kangaroos have been the standard in motorcaddies for 50 years. Our founder Bill Ganskopp was an avid walking golfer who played year-round in western North Carolina. No caddies were available in the winter, and he found carrying a bag disrupted his game. Bill, an engineer by trade, designed his first motorcaddie prototype and Kangaroo Golf was born.

Kangaroo Golf - making the best electric motorcaddies since 1970

  • Since then we've been committed to a few simple ideas:
  • Design and build the best electric caddie for walking golf on the market in our Western North Carolina factory.
  • Build personal relationships with each Kangaroo owner. We value getting to know each of our customers. If you need service, you’ll be helped directly by someone in our factory.
  • Promote walking golf and healthy living.
