I have a Sun Mountain.  Not sure what model but it's only a couple of years old.  It's a nice cart.  The only problem I had was the brake cable slipped out of the lock handle.  I guess the screw came loose or something.  It was so frayed that I couldn't put it back in.  I just fed some up from the wheel and adjusted everything as needed to get it long enough to cut a clean end off and thread back through.  The tire pump broke on the first use and was a pretty cheap POS.  Luckily I have a compressor in the garage.  Overall a nice cart, but I really don't think it's worth what they charge.  Works good for tying the dog to when I want to walk with her.

I think its awesome that they let dogs on the golf course.  I played in Austin, Tx at a muni last time I was down there and several people had dogs with them.  I can't fathom that being okay at the courses I play in Chicago.  I wish it was, I would probably be more inclined to bring my dogs with as its a great excuse for a walk, and they are great on the leash, so it would be no trouble to have them sit while I hit the ball.

Do you really believe that carts speed up the pace of play?  I guess it depends on the course, but if the course is well designed (the next tee is resonably close to previous green) I will argue that walking with golfers who play ready golf is faster. 

 

I played a round last week and I rode (the cart was included in the price) and one of the golfers walked, at no point where we waiting on the walker (IE, he wasn't the reason we played slow) and to be honest, we played in 4.5 hours.

Got the cart yeaterday, really nice. It was hard to tell the size from the picture on Rockbottomsgolf.com, it is bigger than I thought it would be. But it looks good with my bag of clubs on it. Using it tomorrow (Saturday), everything looks and feels OK.
