Re: The Golf Thread

Revenue from carts is what makes walking affordable.

I was a caddy as a teenager at a private country club on the good side of the town I grew up in

Very few clubs offer caddies anymore mostly either high end private clubs or very high end resort courses like Pebble Beach.  

I’ve only got to use a caddy once which was good on a course you don’t know to give you distances and read putts.  I was a guest at a private club in the Philly Main line area.  A caddy that doesn’t know your game and how far you hit clubs can’t pull clubs for you though.

I get the revenue thing with carts.  So raise the walking price to make up for it and you need less employees without carts.  The course also stays in better shape without them especially in the spring.

Did NYS change thier rules as it was a firm no carts rule when they reopened golf.

Simply wrong Z many seniors who have mobility issues , perhaps heart conditions or worse , need carts . Many senior leagues are not in operation because of the restriction

Carts  are very simple to sanitize , as Camp mentions .

Hopefully  5/15 the restricyions are lifted

Exactly. Must be Z thinks he'll be able to walk a golf course forever. 🤦

I said over 70 or have a drs note
If you say have a bad hip and can’t walk you get a note
I doubt a good doc would give note for being too fat though my doc would say you need the exercise tough cookies

And I do plan on walking when I’m in my 70’s.  Low impact way to get exercise.  There are electric trolleys for your bag if pushing a golf bag is too much work

So you guys are ok with making some kid working for college money have to sanitize your cart?
The virus can live for 6+ hours on hard plastic
Plus there would be beer cans water bottles etc that have touched someone’s mouth
The cart is way bigger than a table at a restaurant and very 3D
Do you trust that same high school kid to have perfectly sanitized every part of the cart?  Are you Willing to risk getting Covid over it?

I trust that business owners will do whatever it takes to keep ALL their customers ( even those that take carts) safe from Covid.

Cleaning carts isn't rocket science.

A doctor's note. That's fucking funny!

I am fine with it Z ,yes i think course operators will be responsible .  I will ride single as i always do.

For many coming off MI's they want the security of,being able,to act / move fast to help if necessary rather than be half way out on the course and experience serious symptoms with no quick mobility  .

Yeah i had my MI  11 years ago on a golf course while walking  and i was in top notch conditioning but its tough to,beat the gene pool thing . . Fortunately i was on the last hole,by the clubhouse when it first hit

I do plan to have sanitizer and if necessary a disinfectant spray in my cart bag and i wear two gloves .
