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.

    • It seems from the ratings that I have seen that, like me, there were a lot of people watching the final round of golf for both the women and the men at the Rio Olympics. The ratings for the men were in fact, second only to the Masters. That is truly fantastic to hear. Going into this Olympics, at least on the men's side, you might think that we were set for a complete disaster. All but a few of the high profile names dropped out for multiple reasons. Pika, safety, or the real reason - just plain tired. I suspect all that didn't play sort of wished they did. They will come out and say that they didn't miss it, because they don't want to look stupid, but the reality is they probably have a pit in their stomach for missing the first Olympics in over 100 years. I am talking about Jason Day, Jordan Spieth, and yes I suspect even Rory McIlroy.

    • Let us know how it goes when you get them.
    • According to GAME GOLF, I have 68% GIR and 13% birdies. 13%/68% (I almost never chip in for birdie) = 19.12%.
    • Damn dude, 4.1?  Wow.  I think you and I were about even when I joined here a couple years ago, 6-something.  You're going in the right direction, I'm headed the other way.  I'm actually at 9.4 at the minute but haven't updated here cuz it's painful and I consider it temporary .  Hand pain gone, actually went to the range this week, 1st time in a year.  So, I plan to throw down a 78 or so and be back under 9 by end of day, fingers crossed.  Keep rolling. No idea what my birdie conversion rate is, I'd guess pretty respectable cuz my putting never left me.
