I'm done with cart path only


Recommended Posts

I'm in South Louisiana and right now every course within 150 miles is cart path only. Combine that with 95 degree highs and insane humidity, I'll will take the cart path only.

 

At least when you drive from shot to shot/hole to hole, you get some sort of a breeze. I guess the other alternative is to not play but that won't be happening. I hate CPO as much as the next but its about the best we can do right now.

We are only cart path only during the winter mostly at the course down the street. My club doesn't have much of actual cart paths, but there were a couple months we walked only due to how soaked the course got.

Georgia here.

 

I walk 90% of my rounds in the winter.  I ride 90% of my rounds in the summer.  Does not matter if you carry a sun mountain or just a driver/7/putter.  Hot, but mostly too humid.  At our course if you walk from 7 green to 9 green you will look like you just jumped in the pool.  This includes my 17 year old son who is a competitive tennis player.  

 

Agree CPO sucks, but a necessity if you want the course to be playable 12 months a year.  

 

 

That's true. Should preface with anywhere but the NW you would need to be walking before 8AM... Walking with caddies could be manageable mid day. Played in Philly yesterday and was soaked - and rode... I remember playing East Lake a couple years back around 10AM in Sept and it was 95 I think. Helluva sweat, but caddies made it easy to double fist gatorades.

I'm fond of plugged lies in the fairway and rafts of floating fire ants. No thanks.

Yeah the fire ants are horrible, they bite the heck out of your hands or where ever.  I just recently got lite up by them on the tee box teeing up my ball on a par 3. 

 

And the plugged lies are beyond stupid.  Hit a low runner that's going to roll 270 and it plugs 230 out.  😕    Love firing in at greens 190 out when my PW only goes 125.  

 

St Augustine FL here.  

 

BTW I do have a push cart with an umbrella to keep the sun off of me and those huge hats that block the sun, they do help a ton.

Fortunately, all of the courses in my immediate vicinity allow walking, which I do almost exclusively all year (and it can get a bit hot and humid here in south-central PA in the summer).  I would do CPO only if there was no other choice.  But if you are looking for an excuse to get some new clubs, you'll have an excuse after you lose half of your current set by forgetting them somewhere on the course.

I played cart path only TPC Valley Course Sawgrass.  Picked up 3 wedges around the greens, dead serious.  58 titleist, PW 845 and some Yonex wedge.

The few times I've brought multiple clubs up to the green with me, there's been about a 50/50 chance I'd walk right by one of them on my way back to my cart, even if I laid it directly in my path.

I think i've ditched a cart on hole #3 before out of anger. Trashy... but felt great.

 

 

So liberating!  I'm proud of you!

Did that this past Saturday, with the tropical storm remnants passing through here on Friday I knew it would be CPO. Unfortunately still had to pay for the cart as it was "required on weekends" at this course. Couldn't convince them otherwise so it was a little more expensive than it should have been, but less aggravating.

What is worse than taking 4 clubs from the cart to your ball is when the cart path is on the left side of the fairway and you push your ball out to the right rough, then having to guess where the ball landed.  Walking back and fourth through thick grass trying to find it really sucks.

That’s why you need to be in the short grass.

I never have a good round with cart path only.  Might as well walk if you are going to play and if the course doesn't allowing walking I'm not playing.  I love the game, but I sure the hell don't if it's cart path only.  

see ya don't let the 2 iron hit u on the way out, too many golfers anyway

I will take cart path only over walking any day of the week.  I have extensive lower body injuries.  It only happens around these parts in LA but only after it rains a lot, so not very often.

 No offense intended- just thinking about some  of your past posts

 

But being short , lower body, kidney and liver issues-walking is difficult yet are swinging  8 degree TX shaft driver ?

 

Where is the power generated ?
