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.

    • I've spent the week of Thanksgiving in Pinehuerst (at Talamore, actually) every year since 2007.  We've had a very few frost delays, and most years its really pleasant.  We've played in shorts lots of times.  Myrtle Beach will be about the same, or slightly warmer. Its a great time for either, not at all crowded, less slow play problems, easier to get a seat in a restaurant, you'll love it.  If you decide on Pinehurst, I can recommend a few good places.
    • I have these too, I like the look.  I really doubt that there's any advantage to be gained.
    • You could vote 0 if that number is closer to the percentage than 1. That's why there's a "0" option.
    • I'm still recovering from my golf marathon, but I'll write just a little bit now.  First and foremost, this was an absolute blast, thanks to the huge effort of the organizers, @mvmac and @iacas, to the sponsors, to the staff at Talamore and MidSouth, and to the attitude and efforts of all of the players.  I was lucky enough this past week to play with every one of my teammates (when I count my pre- and post-tournament fun rounds), and against every player on the West team except for @Golfingdad.  Ten matches total for the 2015 and 2017 Newport Cups, and I haven't been in the group with him once.  Fortunately, I've been able to play with him in Palm Springs a couple of times. I loved the matches, from watching @Pretzel and @phillyk bomb it almost off the planet, to watching my partner @bkuehn1952 sink every putt inside 10 feet (keeping the pressure off of me), to seeing @mchepp try to grind me to dust, one crumb at a time.  I enjoyed the mix  of personalities, the wide range of ages, over 40 years from top to bottom, the huge variations in our golf games.  I'm REALLY happy that the top end of the ages was victorious in the end.  I'm absolutely amazed that the end result was this close once again, although it may just be an indication that we all have reasonably accurate handicaps.   As someone mentioned earlier in this thread, a few of us blue team players talked about the challenge balls on Friday night, with most of it being less than completely enthusiastic.  As it turned out, however, I thought the challenge was pretty exhilarating, really ramping up the pressure.  Of course, my match on Saturday with @mchepp was nothing but pressure to start with, I'm not sure I needed to ramp it up any more.  You know, for us old guys, a heart attack on 18 tee wouldn't be a good thing.   Enough for now.  Once again, my thanks go out to @iacas and @mvmac, the sponsors, the venues, the players, and especially to @RandallT for keeping my lovely wife informed.
    • I'm the new guy here on this forum, so I imagine this debate has been going on for awhile so I'll just respectfully respond to this by giving my opinion on the matter: Bull-feathers! There are four things that determine the distance you hit a golf ball; the loft angle on the clubhead, the length of the club, the speed of your swing, and how close to the center sweet spot you connect with the ball. Everything else, IMO, is marketing BS. But as I said at the very beginning of this thread, my swing is not the same as it was 16 years ago when I got my X-14's so I'll be buying something. What that something is at this point I'm still not 100% certain.
