As far as two per cart, it will return once COVID.19 data gets analyzed and a vaccine emerges. One would hope testing becomes more available so the health care people can better classify people as per their risk (to and from) COVID.19.

Lots of posters have talked about the benefits of walking over riding, and the problems on spread-out courses where it can be 500 yards from last green to next tee. So, no comments from me on this.

One influence on cart culture might be an upswing in the use of Golfboards. These are those two-wheeled, single-golfer battery operated "golf surf boards" that emerged a few years back. The weight pressure of the tires causes 30% less stress on the turf as two-person riding carts, and a familiar golfer can play 18 in about 2.5 hours on one of these. As of now, purchase costs for a GolfBoard is around $6,000; this is about what you would pay for a new, low-end two-person riding cart.

Golfboard web site talks about how popular the devices are. But, I have yet to  see any at courses in eastern Missouri-western Illinois "Gateway PGA" zone.

Some courses around here are putting plexiglass dividers in the carts so two at a time can ride.
