Do you have your own golf cart?

Our local courses don't allow you to use your own golf carts, so it would be stupid for me to have my own. I know other courses let you, but I don't know if I would ever bother.

Not any more but I did have.

I live just off a private course that allows the members to own their own cart (with no trail fees). I was a member for about 15 years and I had an EZ-Go in my garage that I kept my clubs strapped to. My shoes just sat on the cart in the floor space on the driver's side. There was a cooler bolted to the floor and a full rain curtain that was rolled up most of the time.

There was nothing better than just going to the garage, slipping the shoes on and heading over to hole number 5 (about 300 yards away) and playing until I wanted to stop in the evenings.

Batteries for the cart would set you back about 350 bucks and would last a couple of years when used as much as I was using them. Other than that, it was pretty maintenance free. Add some water to the batteries and hose it down every once in a while.

It was a useful vehicle to make runs to the store as well, or to go to the local parade or visit friends.

When my kids move out, I will likely re-join the club and have a cart again.

My Grandmother lived in a golf course retirement community where when you bought a house it came with a cart. When I would go over and visit she would tell me to bring my clubs and we would drive out the back yard to the par 5 and start playing. When she got to where she couldn't play she would still tell me to bring my clubs and she would just ride and spend the day with me.
