Though most American golfers tend to jump into a powered cart these days and many courses require them, one of the joys of playing golf is actually walking a course, even if just for nine holes. The overwhelming majority of public courses are walkable, and if you head for Scotland or Ireland, hoofing it is all but required, which makes those links experiences so special. In that spirit, here are a few ways to get walking in style and comfort — some with even a little powered help.
SUN MOUNTAIN SPEED CART GX
Following the mantra, one who stops being better, stops being good, Sun Mountain is rolling out the new and improved Speed Cart GX. Improvements include a redesigned handle allowing for a larger mesh headcover tray; new, standard mesh basket; improved upper and lower bag brackets that easily adjust to hold a variety of golf bag shapes and sizes; and a built-in bracket to hold the accessory Speed Cart seat. Previous years’ improvements that carried over for the Speed Cart GX include bungee straps to more securely hold the golf bag, a mobile phone slot in the storage tray, and an easily adjustable tracking system to keep the cart rolling straight. Additional standard offerings on the Speed Cart GX include an umbrella holder, scorecard holder, and padded storage tray. The ever-growing collection of optional, add-on accessories includes coolers, oversized cupholders, range finder holders, cigar holders, seats, and more, to go along with cart covers and wheel covers.
