This is probably exactly why you avoided doing this in the first place, but I really feel like it should at least be a 1-5 scale. I think a lot of courses fall under more of a "Mostly" where there is only a hole or two that causes any issues. I feel these courses deserve more than a "Somewhat", but certainly aren't a "Very".

1-Not at all
2-Doable, but you're probably better off not
3-Expect some issues, but you can make it 50/50
4-Most of it is fine with a couple of holes that could cause some issues
5-Very Friendly

Not saying they're not out there, but I've never played a course that I thought there was no way I would take my cart. That being said, I also go into it knowing that I may need to maneuver a little more than someone without a cart. I could see not taking it on some of the mountain courses, but I haven't had that pleasure yet.

There are definitely some courses that are not cart friendly (Nockamixon off the top of my head). Getting too granular with the scale probably isn't necessary for most people. You can check the indicator and then look at pics and decide for yourself.

I think a lot of courses are probably mostly if not entirely cart friendly and just having a "not friendly" indicator might have been a good option for this.

In the central NC area, most courses are not very cart friendly. I suppose it depends on how many wheels your cart has though.

Not to alienate the DIY crowd, but when I see "cart friendly", I'm generally assuming a purchased cart (Zuca/Delta). DIY'ers generally know how their carts will perform vs. those mass produced for disc golf.

I just updated a course as very, but could have used an extra option in there, what Tim listed a few posts back would be perfect. It's very friendly, save for 2 hills, which aren't bad but a cart makes them a little more of a workout.

My apologies for being somewhat illiterate. But where is this new feature located? I can't seem to find it to update my course. Thanks!

The 3-option scale works for me.

Our course is fairly cart-friendly, I guess, except for one really brutal hole right in the middle of it. But cart-draggers who've been there before, bring their carts back again, so I went with "somewhat".

Being that I don't use a cart (yet), I can't really give a cart friendliness rating, but even a lot of flat terrain courses may have creek or ditch crossings that don't have adequate bridges for carts. I kind of wish the feature was left in some sort of neutral position until someone with a cart chimes in. Even if most of the holes present no problem for carts, the few that do IMO might significantly impact the experience.

Seems like great information but could just end up being a battle back and forth between the 70 year old with a cart who can barely walk a course much less pull a cart toggling every course with a set of stairs to Not friendly and the 95% of others with carts who find the course moderately or very friendly... back and forth.
