Remember when you were younger? It seemed like you had seemingly boundless energy. You took the stairs instead of the elevator. You didn’t mind walking to the local store or park. And it was easy to participate in sports.
Men and women of a certain age will tell you that it’s nicer to take the golf cart around a golf course instead of walking it. And why not? Golf carts make the game of golf easier and more enjoyable no matter what the age, as they’re fun to drive, they help carry the equipment, and, if it rains, they get you to shelter quickly or serve as small shelters in a storm.
Golf carts have pretty much taken over the golf courses of the world in recent times and very people actually walk the course instead. If you were to choose to walk a typical 18-hole golf course, you’d burn about 1,500 calories– so you’d essentially walk off a meal. That’s not bad, but keep in mind that swinging golf clubs is also a good way to get exercise on the golf course, so that can “count” for your “exercise for the day,” rather than walking all 18 holes.
Is walking a golf course the healthier choice? Sure. But let’s be realistic. Golf carts are cool, convenient, a place to chat with others on the course, and get you out of the direct sun when needed. They’re a true asset to golfing.
