It looks like a belated April Fools’ Day prank, but this video showing a golf cart hovercraft from reigning Masters champion Bubba Watson and Oakley appears to be the real deal.

Watson and Oakley have worked together on the BW1, a prototype hovercraft that solves some of the issues with traditional golf carts. With it, you can drive on the putting green without damaging it, and you can move across sand and water without any issues. Plus, it just looks cool.

“Let’s go through the water hazard, come off the other side right back by the green, putt your ball in the hole, and drive back across the water hazard,” Watson says in the video. “And who doesn’t want to do that?”
