    Carts:

    The arrival of the residential golf courses of the 1990s created a situation in which walkers can’t keep up. My home course has back-to-back holes that feature:
    * a 150 carry over a sensitive wildlife area (a marsh), the path around which meanders 300 yard – hald a steep downhill and half a steep uphill.
    * A hole that goes downhill, and then leaves players with a 300-yard 45* angle uphill trek to the next tee.

    A neighboring course has two holes which are a quarter-mile from the previous hole’s green. Plus, the routes amid the houses are not marked well and walkers (and even carters) can get lost.

    A third course has a no-win situation on the back nine. The course combines long treks between a green and the next tee, along with four cartpath-only holes – regardless of the weather. On the cartpath-only holes, you can’t drive down into the fairway. So, if you hit a drive into the first-cut left of rough, you walk 150-yards out and then 150-yards back to hit your shot.

    And don’t get me started on the courses that are strictly for walkers – unless you have a doctor’s note. Couldn’t they at least have pull carts for the average golfer?

    Carts are bad. They rob the game of its pace and a lot of its health benefits.

    Carts are good. In Tucson we have 103-degree heat and a lot of people have left town. That means you can complete a round of golf using a cart in less than 2 hours.
