SoloRider - Single person golf cart

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I did a search and didn't find anything on this here so I wanted to post it.

The Phoenix municipal courses have these, atleast there website says they do. I just started playing and have only played one of the 9 hole courses and walked with a cart. But these really sound like a good idea and would speed up the pace of play. I think they are a great idea and I would love to opt for one of these instead of going with someone else in a 2 person cart.

I don't think I can post a link yet, well not sure really so just do a google search for SoloRider and you can find the companies website.

Re: SoloRider - Single person golf cart

that is a neat idea. Couple weeks ago I was looking into a GEM golf cart. The fact that those are street legal might actually force me to buy one.

Looks like these are designed more for people with disabilities... you could always just ride solo in a two person cart:

Well I definitely wouldn't go cruise the interstate with it But this town is small enough that I don't think I would get hit by a semi. But I do wonder how they would hold up to a 20 mph hit from a car.

Or How funny it is when you can use the Turn Signals and the brake lights on the golf course.

I can say that I would like to buy a golf segway before I buy a single person or 2 person golf cart. Those segways look really cool. How much are those again

I believe the cheaper ones run for about 5 grand.
I'm pretty sure the solo-rider is for disabled people

I think it was created to help disabled people but I think single person carts are a better idea than the 2 person carts.

One of the golf courses where i live has Segways, Boughton Golf Club. www.pentlandgolf.co.uk

They are sooo fun, really quick aswell, me and my friend played 118 holes in 1 45 minutes. However noone else uses them, they have hired them out about 10 times to people other than us who want to dick about.

Must be REAAAALLY quick

I've never even seen these before... I'd try 'em out, but I think I'd rather just walk.

I'd love it if a course got everybody's butt in a cart. As in, a cart for every golfer.

Consider this: After getting the tee time, you wait 20-30 minutes for your turn to tee off with three or four groups ahead. You and I are in a cart, and two of our buddies are in another. You pull-hook one about 310 down the left, and I hit a weak slice about 200 into the garbage on the right. (Or vice-versa.) Meanwhile, the other two guys in our foursome have done the same thing.

So all day long we're driving zigzags across the entire course chasing down each other's golf balls, and in the time it takes to do that we've lost track of where we hit the others, ready golf is completely abandoned, and it becomes a 5+ hour round.

I'd say four decent players could get around in the course in three hours or less, even while taking their time.

Increasing the number of golfers on the course (by speeding up play!) would easily offset the increased fuel cost and maintenance a golf course would incur by putting more carts out there.
