Definitely a difference between some type of pull cart and a motorized one. One of the reasons I like DG is I get a great walk in. I'm 57 but I have no interest in riding in a cart. Going to be playing at Selah in a couple of weeks and I plan to walk. I would use a pull cart possibly but haven't seen the need yet. My DG bag is not that big. Years ago when I played ball golf and everyone was riding I walked and I did use a pull cart.

You're going to add enourmous amounts of time to your rounds at Selah if you walk.

Yeah, I'm a walker and bag carrier but Selah was made for carts.

zuca with all the bells and whistles, lol at slowing down rounds, i am usually out in front of everyone and sitting comfortably waiting. I carry two 32 ounce water bottles, have a cooler(saddle bags) with more water and snacks and can carry an absurd amount of towels for those rainy days. While you are fumbling with your umbrella(rainy days), your chair and your bag i am already walking down the fairway. I have a grip c series for courses that aren't friendly.

only thing about the zuca is the lack of width means you have to navigate carefully in certain terrains, it can roll on you quickly

I'll third that. I like a good walk. And I carry my discs.

But at Selah? Carts all the way. There are long walks in there. YEE-HAW, etc.

Hand Carts:
Go for it. There are certainly some courses/events where it would be a convenience. A lot of the mountain courses around here aren't very conducive to cart usage, but it is amusing to see people try. I don't think that hand carts necessarily slow down pace of play; I've seen slow players that carry bags and fast players that roll carts around.

Motorized Carts:
I've never been to a course that offered this amenity, but I'd be willing to give it a try. I could see it being a major convenience, especially if you're planning to play multiple rounds on long courses. I don't envision motorized carts being the future of the sport, but it seems like a fun/luxury option to use occasionally.

Not something I would be interested in but to each their own. I tend be of the travel fast and lite mind set. I don't play big tournaments and don't generally carry more than 8 disc in a Sling Shot bag (a budget Nut Sac) so no need for a cart. Also, I don't think that the very hilly terrain at most of the courses I play would be very conducive to the use of a cart.

Full disclosure -- I am a 56-yr-old grandmaster.

In Texas heat, especially June thru September, I can guarantee that having a cart will fatigue you less, regardless of age. There's a reason why people who play ball golf and pull their bags use a rolling cart most of the time when there's no golf car.

Things evolve. In every sport, practically every arena. Hardly anyone uses the old back straps anymore; those carrying bags probably have a backpack style bag. The cart is simply another step in evolution. I do have a separate bag and a cart actually, and will use the bag when the course is not cart-friendly.
