If my drives went 500', I might feel different.

But.....



I always thought this would be the best potential use of carts---to design a course using the best possible 18 holes on a property, without any considering of how long the transitions might be, or compromises in the design to manage them.
Several of my friends with private courses have motorized golf carts. It comes in handy after we spend the morning having work day activities and then play mob golf in the afternoon. Nearly everyone walks the course but most bags are carried by the carts. It is nice when a mob rounds takes 4 hours to not have to carry my bag and all the beverages I need for 4 hours in the heat.

They're fantastic. I really enjoy the rare chances I get to play disc golf on ball golf courses. The carts are awesome, and you can encapsulate the cart in a rain fly if it's cold/windy/raining.

Plus you can load them up with food, beer, music, cigars, extra discs and a buddy.

My favorite way to play IMO.

I played a lot of stick golf in my teens. We used to do some light off-roading and donuts on the back 9 away from the clubhouse at one public course. One time my buddy and I tipped one going pretty fast. The roof smashed his arm pretty good and the battery moved around enough for a small fire to start under the seat. We were able to put it out with my injured buddies shirt. I mean, my polo was brand new. Good Times.

I am lucky in the fact that my small town allows golf carts to be street legal so majority of the time we take our golf cart to the course but once we are there, we walk the course. It's not very difficult and terrain is good so its a nice walk.

I use a BOB off-road jogger stroller. Love it! I had a stroller made by Jeep with a built in mp3 player and speakers, however, the stroller just fell apart from the extra weight of my ice chest. Bob, on the other hand, is waaaay better crafted.

As for motorized carts: My back is usually sore after a round from all of the high speed bumps. My drivers usually think they are Cato or some NASCAR guy.

I don't have any cart-friendly courses near by and they don't seem necessary to me but if my course offered them I'd sure as hell use it, driving golf carts is loads of fun!

Since I only carry 8 discs, water bottle, and a few odd and ends, I don't feel the need for a cart. The only time I am envious is when I see one of my buddies sitting on the cart taking a break.
