The Sound Caddy Bluetooth Speaker Looks Just Like a Golf Club

Golf is a normally a quiet sport of concentration and precision, but what about those times you just want to unwind, relax, and play a few holes with your buddies? In those moments, it’d be nice to have some music scoring the fun. Then again, hauling around a portable speaker can be annoying, especially one with enough oomph to really get the most out of your music, so it needs to not only give you good sound, but integrate into your golf game as well — provided your course of choice allows for such a thing in the first place. In that case, the Sound Caddy wireless speaker, may be exactly the thing you’re looking for.

The Sound Caddy is a Bluetooth speaker that resembles a driver club, so it can seamlessly fit in with the rest of the clubs in your golf bag. However, instead of the usual wood or metal that club heads are made of, the Sound Caddy is built with rubberized plastic. The body is rated IPX5 waterproof and weather proof, making it safe to take on the course. Rain, sprinklers, or the accidental dunk in a pond wouldn’t hurt it. However, Sound Caddy stresses that the speaker is not a golf club, despite its durability, and should not be used as such, no matter how much you want to play “Enter Sandman” while hitting a 250 yard drive.

Within the head, dual 30mm drivers and a passive subwoofer power playback. The 5000mAh LIPO battery not only supplies power for the speaker itself, but it can also charge your phone or other USB devices while out on the course thanks to two USB 2.1A ports. A micro USB port is also included, and is used to charge the speaker.

While you’ll be able to control music directly from your connected Bluetooth device, the Sound Caddy features power, play/pause, skip/fast/forward/rewind, and volume controls on the face of the club. It also includes a mic, enabling the Sound Caddy to be used for hands-free phone calls — no need to interrupt play when the outside world decides to get a hold of you.

As mentioned earlier, the Sound Caddy is made to easily blend in with your golf bag, but you can remove the grip to reveal a spike to set the speaker into the ground. If the idea of lugging around a golf club-sized speaker seems unwieldy, the shaft breaks down further, and the head can be removed for better portability.

The Sound Caddy is available now from the official Sound Caddy online store, and will set you back $130.

The 11 best Robert De Niro movies to stream right now
From Raging Bull to The Godfather Part II, these are the roles that have defined De Niro's long career
Robert De Niro in Goodfellas

There are few actors working today who can match the career that Robert De Niro has had. Some, like Brad Pitt or even George Clooney, have been in plenty of great movies, but even they don't stack up to the kind of career that De Niro has had over the last half a century. De Niro's success can be chalked up, at least in part, to his collaboration with great directors. De Niro has been in some of Martin Scorsese's best movies, and Scorsese isn't the only director who knows how to use him.

Really, though, it's De Niro himself who deserves a lot of the credit. Although he's been in plenty of schlock, the best movies of his career are up there with the best movies ever made. When he emerged on the scene, De Niro showed off his ability to play a range of different types, and his skills have only deepened as the years have gone by. Keep reading and find out what Robert De Niro movies you cannot miss if you have already.

The 12 best Adam Sandler movies (they’re not all comedies)
From Uncut Gems to Happy Gilmore, these are the films that defined Sandler's career to date

What is there left to say about Adam Sandler? The Sand-Man has been a fixture of pop culture for well over 20 years, having worked first on Saturday Night Live and then broken out in a series of farcical, wonderful comedies in the years after his departure. He's one of the biggest comedy stars on the planet, and he's been part of some of the best comedy movies. He's also made plenty of movies that nobody should be forced to watch twice.
For every movie that has immediately been relegated to the trash bin of history, though, Sandler has also made an indelible comedy or a surprising turn into drama. While he could have emerged looking a little bit like a one-trick pony who relies on funny voices for cheap laughs, Sandler turned out to be far more complicated than that. He is a genuinely great actor whenever he wants to be. The rest of the time, he's content to make silly movies with his best friends. Here are the best Adam Sandler movies you need to watch now.
