A golf cart is a motorized conveyance normally (though not exclusively) used by golf course
s as an alternative to walking
. Nearly all courses have the option to use a golf cart and are covered with concrete cart path
s to accomodate those using them. Most golf carts can safely carry two passengers and their clubs, though there are models made to carry a greater number of passengers.
Golf carts come in two flavors when it comes to power
. The gasoline variety seem to go faster, but most carts are governed to a top speed of about fifteen miles per hour
. The governer
on the engine of many carts will even go as far as automatically braking on hills to keep the cart from attaining dangerous
speeds due to gravity
, but on electrics this safety can be easily defeated by repeatedly tapping the gas pedal.
discourage the use of golf carts, stating the case that a course can only be experienced fully on foot. Many find, however, that it adds to the game by eliminating late-game fatigue
created by walking.
