    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.

On Spec: Please don’t play blades (or maybe play them anyway)

Published

on

Host Ryan talks about the different ways to enjoy the game and maximizing your equipment enjoyment which doesn’t always have to mean hitting it 15 yards farther.
