we got frost delayed @ Golden Eagles on Sunday so we booted it across the street to Swaneset and they put us on the Links course right away, first time for me. i've played the Resort a few times so i thought it would be a nice change. my thoughts were it's got more sand,water, tighter tee shots, but not a links course . still enjoyed it though, well maintained,beautiful fairways.

the guy in the pro shop was a bit of a peckerhead, telling us to keep up the pace because the members will get upset at us,blah,blah...faack.

Have any of you guys played "The Falls" in Chilliwack? it's worth the drive if you're thinking about getting out and about this season with your buddies. Amazing course.

Played about a year ago. Word to the wise, may sure your cart has lots of gas. Ours ran out, thanks to having my cell called the club house and they brought another one....with little gas. That one ran out as well. Finally got to finish our round with a third cart

^ its expensive to just convert to electric if you've already have gas. probably better just to keep the gas ones, its about $5000 for a new gas cart and i think electric's are more + you gotta convert your cart shed to charge it.

weather's been kind of funny these days with rain and some frosty mornings. are there any sales goin on anywhere? i think golftown had some demo sale last fall, do they do that more than once a year?

1. i'm sure it's not $5000/ea if you're buying 20 or 30 of them.
2. they can always sell the gas ones to offset the price, and im sure the maintenance cost on electric is less costly.
3. its probably expensive to equip carts with gps, but courses do it all the time.

^ hey don't you play hockey w/ ray and those guys on wednesdays?
anyways..... you can also lease them too. but for some courses the head pro has to pay the expense out of his own pocket so if you got gas, and they are working properly then theres no real advantage in changin to electric unless you carts are breaking down.

some courses put their revenue back into stuff like electric carts, some courses have both gas and electric and slowly weed out gas ones. the golf course i work at, the carts here come straight out of the head pro's pocket so if the carts aren't broke he doesn't fix them haha.

btw i HATE frost.

They ARE around $5000 each if you were to buy them seperately. However, I dont think too many courses still buy them, as most courses lease carts for 5 or 10 year terms. This way they can return the old ones to get brand new ones. (unless it is up to the head pro to get them out of his own pocket, like bkw said). For instance, at Northlands, 5-10 carts are re-leased each season, allowing for the old carts to be cycled out and new carts brought in every year.

At present, there are 55 carts at Northlands and there are 10 more on the way... On average, there are usually 3 or 4 carts down in maintanence getting worked on, but those broken down carts are ususally the result of customers crashing into things and wrecking the alignment or brakes, and nothing to do with the cart being electric. so in that sense, you are right, electric carts are less costly to deal with then gas.

The only problem I have with Electric carts is that as the batteries get older, the charges do not last as long. As a result, when the same cart is going out for the second or third time in a day (you bastard 2nd twilighters who are too lazy to walk and take carts!), the likelihood of it dying on you is pretty good if you got an older cart. Each cart has 8 batteries, each costing 40-50 dollars a piece. This makes it difficult to justify spending the money on new batteries when the carts are only leased.

As for GPS at Northlands, it is on the way.. its just a matter of fitting it into the budget. I heard that each GPS unit costs several hundred dollars and that you have to close the course in order to have the GPS company come out and plot the course. I personally think the GPS will be a nice feature to have on the carts, especially since northlands is a difficult course with many blind shots. Unfortunately I know many customers will have an issue paying more money for the cart rental (5$ or so) when they do not intend to use it.

hopefully what i have said makes sense...
any more cart questions, just ask

northlands is my favorite course... i hope that the addition of gps wont jack up the green fees... i think that course has enough going for it that gps would take away from the experience of playing a course like that. i find that relying on a computer to make your club selection takes away from the game, and northlands is a course where club selection is the difference between a great day and an ok day.


bkw... scotty cameron studio newport by chance? if so, pm me, i want!
