Here’s an interesting story posted by the AP:

“A growing number of cities and counties are mandating the use of electric or gas-powered carts, believing they are needed to speed play and therefore allow more golfers on the course.

Officials in Nassau County, on Long Island, came under fire last month when they announced that carts would be required for anyone wishing to play its premier municipal 18-hole course — Eisenhower Red, a Robert Trent Jones-designed loop that annually hosts a PGA Champions Tour event for golf professionals older than 50.” (More)

I know that some courses are designed with only golf carts in mind — with huge stretches between tees. I like Tiger Woods’s idea for his new course in North Carolina — a walker’s only course. What do you think, The Golf Blog community?
