Car is once. I don't go back after each hole ;-)
So, most holes are par 3. Drop bag behind tee. Pick it up after drive. 1. Drop bag at end of drive. Putt. Pick up. 2. Tap in. leave.

So, 2 is likely, 3 is possible. 5 is never.

BTW, none of these are even noticed by me.

Get back to me in 27 years.... the difference in time I've been playing compared to you

And it sounds like you play only par 54 courses.

I agree with Cap. The other things I like is not having to pick up and carry 2 or more 40oz hydroflasks, I can pack a bunch of extra disc that I probably don't need, and having a seat where ever i am at. The seat thing especially on tournament days!

27 year old here who uses a cart. I want to be playing this game as long as possible, I would rather have the stress on my stronger leg muscles and my arm I’m not throwing with pulling a cart, than on my shoulders and back. Play enough times and that religion builds on itself and wears, on top of that the straps will eventually degrade and won’t be as efficient supporting that weight. I have not once regretted getting a cart and after trying a few models, decided to stick with Ridge Roller. Now that delta is gone, it’s pretty much the best cart you can get imo and will last well over 10 years.

Same here,
I tend to use my backpack in cold weather. It actually aids in keeping my core warm and my hands in my pockets. I don’t carry that much hydration when it’s cool, so the weight is much more reasonable.
Remember, 32ozs of water weighs in at ~900gms, or 5 discs.
In the summer, I’m usually pulling a cart to keep my back cool and carrying the hydration on the cart.

Are carts really as much of a pain as some of you guys are saying?

I'm only 25, only Ma2 so far, been playing for just under a year ... But, I have pre existing injuries from previous sports that start to affect me towards the end of rounds, especially tournaments. Back injuries, MCL/ACL, a shoulder strain that won't go away and forces me to Putt right handed because the only time the shoulder affects me is putting.

I have a DD Commander bag, and I'm looking at the Zuca EZ cart... Most of the courses I will play are EXTREMELY cart friendly.

Are they as much as a drag as some of these guys say or am I reading into it too much?

Colin.

I wouldn’t say my cart is a pain to deal with.

It definitely seems to leave me with energy left after a long round versus carrying a backpack around.

My main deal is a lot of the courses I play have a lot of elevation, creek crossings, etc. and make using the bag more convenient and faster.

If I played flatter courses or park type courses or courses on ball golf courses I would use it way more often.

Also, traveling too and from your destination is probably easier without the cart. I have a full size, crew cab truck so it isn’t really a big deal for me but if I had to transport the cart in some sort of car it would probably be a bit of a pain.

I also don’t like dragging my cart through snow or mud. Even with the fenders it seems to make quite a mess.

No but I have seen Commander bags get stuck in some backpack carts to the point they are very hard to get out. Also some people from what I have read on this website have a hard time accessing the side pockets on the Commander to the Backpack cart.
