here's the pic of the carts. Plenty of room back there and a fold-down tailgate.

ranch pics

view of lakeside 17-18 from the pro shop, and one of the very large campsites. The dirt road ridge is the tee of Creekside #1. Quarter mile from the pro shop. Pretty nice and shaded.

Thanks for the cart pic! We usually used the back seat for disc bags and coolers, so no great loss for us. Extra guys simply left their bags on the carts and walked along. Seems obvious, but it's so much easier to walk if you're not carrying your bag (and a bunch of beer).

I read those, and having never played there really can't say his position is "way off base", but no one should be copy-pasting the same review for three different courses just to describe his feelings about the whole complex. That sort of thing should be reported.

Another note to add is that the new carts are gas powered and have much more rugged tires. They handled the terrain much better then the older ones did, plus you do not have to worry about charging them in the middle of the day if you plan to play multiple rounds.

That's right. We started on half a tank of gas and ended with over a quarter of a gallon. And that's with about 4 cross-course full speed races.

Good to see the new carts. I had to push one of the old ones out of the mud on Lakeside when my wife and I were there. Looks like these would blow right thru the muck. Can't wait to get back here.
