I like the exercise aspect of disc golf to, I just thought this was a neat toy.

If I had enough money to toss around on stuff like an offroad Segway I would have one. Still waiting to win the lotto. I saw one similar at Bestbuy.

so.... it's an ace if you can knock someone off of one of these with a laser drive to the dome-piece, right?

Why make DG like ball golf where you don't even wrinkle your shirt, let alone sweat in it?

Professional golfers walk the course as part of the PGA rules. Remember a few years back there was a slightly disabled pro golfer who wanted to be allowed to ride in a cart, but the PGA wouldn't let him?

There's also plenty of amateur golfers who walk the course for the exercise, or as a matter of principle.

So golf isn't a sport where you don't wrinkle your shirt, and if you're even outside in 90F weather, not to mention swinging metal clubs, you're going to sweat no matter who you are.

But yes, carts are more distasteful in disc golf than in ball golf. Take the money you'd spend on that offroad Segway and donate it to your local club. Think how much course maintenance they could do with $7000? Or take the money you'd spend on that offroad Segway and sponsor a local tournament.

Bring it to Renaissance Park. No shortcuts, no backtracking, must ride both courses in proper sequence. This will be hilarious.

Anything with a creek running through it would be impassible for any kind of segway, unless there's a wide enough bridge.

so does drinking a case of beer and walking two rounds cancel each other out?

if you were to quit walking wouldnt your equilibrium be thrown off?
