Reminder of how dangerous riding in the golf cart can be.

Two years ago I got 6 stitches on my forehead and a decent shiner on the left eye after being thrown out from a golf cart. Hit the cart metal post holding up the roof before hitting the ground.

My wife thought I got into a fight. She couldn't believe how a person can injure himself that severely at a golf course.

The guy driving the cart was looking for his ball and hit a cement embankment head on and full speed. And ,no, we were not drinking adult beverages.

Stay safe everyone.

I once had to dive out of a cart that lost control going down a hill in the pouring rain. At the edge of the path was a 100 foot drop (with a railing but I wasn't sure if would hold the cart)

So I dive out and the cart hit the rail and stopped. Was super scary though

Hope he's going to be OK

I walk 99% of the time, but I see all kinds of behavior in golf carts.  What really scares me is that these same people drive cars also.

Golfers, please be careful, on the course, and in your autos.

I sure hope this guy is ok.  

That being said....

Are we going to start wearing helmets while driving around on a piece of grass at 7mph?   Why can't people pay attention to what they are doing for more than 9 f'n seconds anymore.

If you have to "be careful" on the golf course, maybe you should just stay home.

I understand accidents happen... But driving a golf cart really isn't that hard.... They go, what, 10 miles an hour?

Last spring I was down in Florida (Disney area) and played Tranquillo (I think I spelled that right). The guys in the group of front of me drank what had to be several gallons of alcohol during their round. While driving from 17 to 18 they slammed into the side of a boardwalk and did significant damage to their cart. According to the cart guy I talked to it happens all the time.
