I am a Marshal at golf course and in the winter (40 degrees) we have more golfers than one might expect that play in these conditions. I have seen a lot of information about golf cart heater that are used with a plastic cover enclosed golf cart.  Has any one had any personal experience with a particular brand or model.  I purchased one through Amazon that is extremely hard to start but once it is lit does a great job.  I was wondering if anyone had personal experience with such a heater.  Some of the things I read about some models were "it goes out if the cart experiences a jolt or bounce" or as in my case "extremely hard to light".  I would appreciate sharing your personal experiences.

All I can tell you is that I bought my father of propane one for his cart and he said that when he had the plastic cover on, it practically baked him out of it. He never mentioned anything about having any problems with it though.

I use a propane model in my boat.  I use a vynal wrap around cover It's is called a Mr Heater Radiant Propane Heater. I think it's rated at 3500 BTUs, but not sure. It does a great job, and very easy to start. Uses one of those small green cans of propane. I have never used a heater while out golfing since, even in colder weather, I walk most of the time.

One thing to remember is to make sure there is plenty of ventilation, or that the heater is rated for indoor use.

A friend of mine has that heater.   He said it doesn't work well if you don't have an enclosure of some kind because it will go out.     He is looking to replace it with one of these .

I have the Coleman Golfcat catalytic heater.  It does a great job.  No issues with it going out.  It gets pretty toasty when you have it fired up with a cart cover on.

I bought the Coleman this year too - works fine, but somewhat disppointed.  Without a cover, it's nothing more than a big handwarmer.

Yep, you are so correct.  I have a cart at home with a cover and it is really nice playing on chilly days where normally I would not even think about going out.  But, I play in a traveling tournament league and that same cover I have on my cart is the one that I used to use during the league.  It got to be such a pain to put on/take off that I gave up using it and put it on my cart at home when the old one finally came apart.  I have ridden with a guy who brought his heater and no cover and it was good to be able to warm your hands but with the cold wind whipping around when you are moving...pretty worthless.

    • And with that, you lose. (In the minds of many.)
    • Perhaps that guy is(was) the exception? Plus, I think the 6,000,000 number might be way low. ... not that it matters. I get your point and I also immediately thought of that guy. It's kind of hard to argue that he's not 100% evil. For now, I think it would be wise to leave him out of the conversation. That one is still very painful for a lot of folks.  Having said all of that. I don't think we've ever had a president who is(was) 100% evil. 
    • Yeah, it’s an old topic. Was more appropriate here than the 2021 TOC topic.
    • Haven't posted a video in a while. I have been working really hard on my swing... REALLY HARD.  Anyway, I don't have any new video to post. But I do have some old video to post.  I'm just sticking these here as a benchmark to where I was. The first one is a 2009 video of my driver swing. This is back when I was working with my previous swing coach. I was playing well at the time, handicap was around 10-14. My miss at the time was a snap hook.  I know the exposure stinks. Again, it's just a benchmark for me.    The next two videos are from 2015. At the time I was between swing coaches. My handicap at the time was around 16. Although I distinctly remember playing some great and some horrible rounds at the time. At the time I was really REALLY REALLY fighting the snap hook. Some days the snap hook would be manageable and I would score really well. Other times, I simply wouldn't be able to get off the tee. The swing coach I would get about a year and a half after these videos were taken would be the swing coach I'd end up sticking with up until now.  Again, I'm just sticking these here for my reference.     
    • You really believe that nobody is 100% evil? There are at least 6,000,000 people that would have disagreed with you. But they're dead.
