Single Rider Carts


Recommended Posts

I drive.  Almost exclusively.  For many of the reasons listed above.  I’m a good caddy!!! Always take care of my passenger.  Mess up on rare occasion, but it happens.

For quite some time covid dictated no passengers.  One person per cart.  

At some point I suggested to the owner of my club, who is a friend, that he buy single person carts.  I explained it probably would have an impact on the cart barn but there is other storage on premises.  Two single carts, OF QUALITY, are less than one two person cart.  I thought it was a marketing opportunity! 

I would love this!  Especially since walking is not a practical option these days.  Too many surgeries, I guess.  But, I’m working on it.

What do y’all think of one person carts?  Really curious what folks think.  For example, I think there is plenty of interaction on the tees and greens.  To say nothing of the 19th hole.  And, I love that aspect of the game.  But, I wouldn’t miss between shots talk.

What say you???

If you gotta have a cart I think one-person carts would speed up the game a bit.

I saw one drive by yesterday. It would fit in the back of a large pickup.

Has anyone used the “Scooter” or something similar?

When I was at MidPines in NC I saw they have Finn Scooters (or something really similar) for rent.  I didn't take one, but they looked like a lot of fun:

I saw someone with something similar to this single rider cart last summer.  He said it was light enough for him to lift it himself into his truck.  The price looks to be around $3,000.  There are lighter models for less.

I would consider using something like this.

Looks fun, but for $3,000 I can walk for free or rent a cart 300 times.  I can also invest in lessons.  I will pass on buying one.

Is this true? I must be picturing something different in my mind, basically a skinny regular cart, but I guess I've never really seen one

The only issue I see with individual carts is that means twice as many wheels on the course. 

Not necessarily, they come in 2 wheel configurations, basically a scooter.

Well, Yes.  Basically a skinny cart.  When I proposed these to course owner a good quality model was $1,700.  They have Yamahas.  The best, IMO. The math worked.  And, the range of them was waaaay more than twice that of a 2 passenger.  Number of charging stations and overall real estate for same would/could be an issue. 

Number of wheels on the course is a valid concern.  I think the weight of singles would somewhat offset that concern.

Often, we have a 90 degree restriction.  You know, stay in the rough until you’re even with your shot.  Then go straight out and straight back to the cart path.  Can’t tell you how often that is ignored.  Plus, people unnecessarily driving through low, wet, areas.  Grrrrr!

    • I hold it closer to the end. But I agree these are harder to get on.
    • Me neither (with other Pure models), until now. I think with a little more careful technique it's not a problem. I was accustomed to the grips just blowing on/off quickly without having to pay too much attention, except for getting the alignment correct and stretching to the length you want. I made a short clip of removing the grip from my 4-iron, and you can see after a couple bursts there is a point where the top wants to start ballooning (4 seconds in), and if I wasn't careful with the bursts, it might have blown up (pardon the messy garage).  
    • Wow. I've never had that happen. Like, ever. 🙂 I just took the Combos off five of my irons without any issues at all.
    • Day 435 - March 8, 2021 Practiced downtown at Golf Evolution and then played four holes with four balls with a 7-iron at Whispering Woods. Got a tee time tomorrow!
    • Yeah - just a bare steel shaft. They are brand new shafts, no previous double sided tape or masking tape. I bet a single wrap of masking tape would reduce the friction between the bare shaft and rubber grip enough to prevent this. At least it seems like the non-sticky side of masking tape is slipperier than the chromed steel.
