FWIW, unless it's some crazy long course with big distances between holes I wouldn't really want to rent a cart.

Question #2: How many aces are there in a typical PDGA event? One per round? And how different is the percentage for NT's? For example, does anyone know how many aces there were at the Memorial this year?

There will probably be more questions. For now, thanks for your help.
1. None that I'm aware of.

2. I'm guessing 1 ace for every 10 typical rounds based on my experience. I'm guessing it's slightly lower for NT's because they are typically harder/longer except for the Memorial. Although NTs typically have many more players than regular events. IDK about aces at this year's memorial.

I believe Bender is correct, 3.

I don't have actual stats. Probably depends heavily on the course, but I'd venture around 80%. I've played Villas Crossing and Horse Bridge, I got the cart for both and would do it again playing those courses.

Horse Bridge wouldn't be any harder walking than most normal courses, so they probably have one of the lowest cart rentals. Their cart price is fairly low though so maybe not given the appropriate demand and supply pricing.

Villas Crossing would be a hike without a cart and suspect the vast majority of players get the cart.

Highbridge allows carts on Granite and Gold courses, they're the only ones you can actually navigate a cart through easily.

Highbridge WAS supposed to be a ball golf course but it never happened so it may or may not qualify for this.

There were at least 5 aces that made ESPN last year: Doss, Pierce, Feldberg, Braithwaite, and Engel.

I was able to find videos for Doss, Pierce, Feldberg and Engel, but nothing for Braithwaite. Can anyone point me in the right direction of the video?

Nice, I don't think I saw that one at all before.

In Michigan, in addition to Pine Hills, there is also another ball golf course that installed a disc golf course just last fall called Yankee Springs, just outside of Wayland (home of BlueGill DGC). They too have carts. The course was super long, so a cart is highly recommended.
