Much like the Segway Human Transporter (HT) e Series model, e167, was essentially an i167 plus an added heavy-duty cargo system (bags), the GT is an Midnight Blue i180 Segway HT with a significant golf bag attachment. Once again the availability of the Lithium ion batteries, and their up to 24 mile range, makes quite an impact on the capacity to ride the Segway GT around the golf course all day. Consider how much more fun golf is when you get to ride a Segway HT around (Weeeee!). In early 2005, Segway Inc moved away from the models named with alpha numeric IDs and toward acronyms with the "GT" and "XT."

From the Segway Inc. website:
The Segway Golf Transporter (GT) is our personal transporter configured to give golf enthusiasts a new way to cruise the course. With extended-range batteries, a golf bag carrier rack, and enhanced traction tires, the Segway GT provides the golfer all the tools needed to experience the game in a fun, unique way. The Segway GT is built upon the same architecture as the flagship i180 model and comes well-equipped with features to enhance the golf experience. It features Saphion® lithium-ion batteries that provide a range of up to 14 miles (on the course, up to 22 miles off the course) depending on terrain, riding style and payload‹more than enough for 36 holes of golf. The golf bag carrier secures the golf bag to the right side of the Segway GT. Adjustable straps secure the bag to the carrier and can accommodate most golf bags. The carrier functions as a stand for the unit when it's time to play, making it easy to access the clubs. Like all Segway HTs, the Segway GT can stay powered on while the rider takes his or her shot, allowing for quick mounting and dismounting and thus, speedier play. Enhanced traction tires come standard on the Segway GT and help the golfer follow the action over the varied landscape of the course. These tires are made of a special compound and feature a unique tread optimized to perform well on low-traction surfaces. The low-pressure pneumatic tires (15-20 psi) are softer on course terrain than other vehicles traditionally used. Using the Segway GT on the course makes for a unique experience. Since the platform is eight inches off the ground, riders get a great vantage point of the fairway. The Segway GT moves two to three times walking speed and can help the rider move from point to point quickly, while still enjoying his or her surroundings. And like all units in the Segway product line, the Segway GT is zero-emissions, almost silent and extremely energy efficient.
