My JuCad Titan trolley is a supporting and reliable companion during my practice rounds at home! Also for travelling it’s perfect, due to the small and flat packing size. Many thanks for this brilliant product and for your cooperation!
Kevin Berger was the first Pro to opt for a JuCad electric trolley. This ultra light and effortlessly manoeuvrable trolley will have saved a few strokes during Kevin’s professional career.
Kevin has had a meteoric rise through German amateur and professional golf. His entry into golf was plain spectacular. In only two years he went from first play to a handicap of zero. For this achievement Franz Beckenbauer presented him with the “Golfer of the Year” award. Not least, the press were ecstatic.
Max Eichmeier turned professional by the mid-year 2012 and plays regularly on the EPD tour.

He took part in many national and international championships reaching several top ten results. Moreover he reached 3rd places at the Hungarian Open 2010 and 2011 and won the German “Länderpokal” with the selection team of Baden-Württemberg in 2011.

Roger Furrer is one of the hopefuls of Swiss professional golf with a stellar junior career behind him. His first contact with golf came by chance, at the age of 13, after successfully playing ice hockey and tennis. After only a few hours on the driving range, his passion for golf had swept him away. Only two years later he was accepted into the regional squad and in 2001 inducted into the Boys National Squad. Four years after his first golf stroke, he was a scratch player and ranked 8th among amateurs in the Swiss Order of Merit. Through victories at two international junior tournaments in the United States, US college golf coaches became aware of his outstanding golf capabilities and he was offered a study scholarship and membership in the golf team. He commenced the study of economics at Augusta State University (Georgia) and played tournaments for one of the best university golf teams in the USA.
"For me, my Titanium Jucad is the Rolls Royce amongst golf trolleys. Due to its light weight and the fact that it can be folded so compact, I can take it to tournaments and training, whether by car or even aircraft in its travel bag. Being a great aesthete, I love its plain modern design combined with technical perfection. It simply cuts a great figure all over the world, whether on a Swiss mountain course or a windy links course in Scotland."

Marcel Haremza is one of the great hopes amongst German golf professionals. He was 10 when his love for golf was kindled by his parents. Already as an adolescent he dreamed of becoming a playing pro on the European Tour. But first he invested in a solid education and became a teaching pro at the golf club GC Hohenpähl/Germany.In 2001, he won as a qualified teaching pro of the PGA of Germany the qualifying tournament for entering the Playing Pro Team of the PGA of Germany, of which is a member ever since.Following successes in the EPD Tour 2002 Marcel Haremza is now playing the European Challenge Tour and keeps pursuing systematically his overriding aim: the Tour Ticket for the European Tour.The model athlete from Herne in North-Rhine-Westphalia now lives near Seefeld in the Austrian Tyrol with his partner -- she runs the Golf Academy Seefeld where Marcel trains regularly.Marcel Haremza is under the aegis of the consulting and management agency businessmeetssports.
His JuCad drive SL trolley is his constant companion during training and tournament rounds. “I am a fan of good design. But that my trolley is very light and at the same time extremely stable makes it different from all others I have tried so far. It is fun to follow behind the JuCad trolley while remaining relaxed and conserving my strength for the game. The battery is a pure energy pack and has never let me down even on the hilly courses in my Tyrolean homeland – and yet it is small enough to fit into my travel golf bag”, is Marcel Haremza’s summary of his JuCad experience.
At the age of only 28 years, Felix Lubenau is already one of ‘old hands’ in German golf. As an eleven year old his first acquaintance with golf occurred at the Golfclub Bad Waldsee, playing the occasional rounds with his parents. But in 1989 his talents were spotted and he obtained special training in the junior squad of Baden-Württemberg. After membership in the national teams for juniors he progressed to qualify for playing in many European and world championship tournaments. In 1996 he won the German Amateur Championship.In 1998 Felix Lubenau became a professional golfer with a handicap of +3. As a member of the AUDI Golf Team he immediately won the German PGA Championship 1998. During 2004 he played in the European Development Tour and the European Challenge Tour.
Felix Lubenau uses his JuCad Drive trolley whenever he plays for training or in tournaments throughout Europe. “This trolley combines functionality and design. Wherever I play, spectators and fellow players are surprised that such an elegant trolley has motors and a battery, none of them visible. On hilly courses little strength is lost and muscles stay supple. That makes play more enjoyable as well as leading to better scores” -- says Felix Lubenau.
Jochen Luprian is another meteor rising through German professional golf. He held his first golf club when he was 14 – relatively late compared to other top professionals. Even in other respects he is not exactly typical. This son of a policeman in Burghausen showed his instinctive talent during his first year of playing golf, finishing with a handicap of 13. After his second year his handicap had dropped to 4 and the trainers of DGV (German golf association) took notice and enlisted him in their trainee squad.
Aiming to become a successful professional, Jochen Luprian battled to rise through the Bavarian and German order of merit lists.
His JuCad electric trolley helps to focus his concentration on play. “I can’t afford, nor would I want to have a caddie to carry my golf bag for every tournament. Since I have my JuCad drive trolley I no longer feel a need for a caddie because this top-of-the-range trolley masters hills and dales and I conserve my energy for play. I especially like its minimal need for space in the boot of my car; often I am several weeks at a time on tour and I need space for all my other luggage. This trolley has reached technical perfection and you can tell from its detail design that golf enthusiasts had quite an influence in its development.”

He is particularly proud of his JuCad titanium trolley. “It really is the best that I can imagine a trolley to be, a perfect fusion of design and functionality” -- praise indeed from Benjamin Schlichting. “With this trolley playing golf is fun!” he adds. But he stays quite the realist: “The way to reach the European Tour is long and tough. One must avoid injuries and needs a little luck, too”, is how he summarises his 5 years of playing as a professional. But luck comes only to those who work with dedication to reach their ambition – and Benjamin surely is dedicated!
