One day, I was riding my motorbike (in a normal speed) in a public road between two golf courses, and one of these carts, was crossing the road without seeing i was coming through. I had to push the brakes so hardly, but it seemed to be my fault, because the "driver", told me something very loudly (i didn't understand what).
I can take them on the golf course, especially on 115 degree summer days here in AZ. However, there are areas here in Phoenix with a lot of retirees (like Sun City) that the bluehairs buy their own and actually take them out on the streets. That is evil. (They actually have small garages on their homes for them. Like the rest of their home, it smells like mothballs and piss)
Living in Glendale, I can agree with you there JTB106, those retirees always drving their golf carts around the major streets blocking traffic. One day one of the senior citizens actually flipped their golf cart and got pinned underneath it! how, i dont know. Strange people they are.
Man i love golf carts! I work at Troon golf and country club in Scottsdale, and I have mastered the art to rednecking the hell out of those things. When all the tricks have been perfected the golf cart can be a hell of a load of fun!
While I'm in school again, I'm working part time at Troon Golf's reservation center. Not the country club, but the worldwide golf management company. Some folks here work at Estancia (spelling?) and some of the other local clubs and I'm sure we know some of the same folks. Just funny to see the word "Troon" in the forum!
Carts are fun! I golf A LOT and we have to take this dirt road full of pot holes to the student range. The potholes are a few feet wide and some are over half a foot deep, plus they're full of mud! FUN!
