Now there's a speed of play idea! Let golfers roll carts across the green... shortest distance between two points. I'm serious, not being a smart ass. Rolling through bunkers... no. There's a nearby course where management doesn't even blink an eye when you roll your push cart across the tee boxes. Personally, I'm reluctant to even let a cart wheel encroach on the fringe. I think I got yelled at once for that.
Yea, the only reason I don’t do it is because it’s not socially accepted, not because it can damage the greens or anything.
Don’t people realize mowers have wheels and weigh a whole lot more than push carts?
I agree. PSI is less than that exerted by a shoe. And possibly less than the broad tires of a power cart. I explained it to them in terms of etiquette and decorum. It's a bad look. And they did have to turn their carts on the green to avoid the sand trap they didn't see on the far side of the green.
