If it is cart path only, stay on the path. If a 90 degree rule, use it. It is not the carts but inconsiderate drivers that can "ruin" the course. ... I actually agree with both of you. It takes a cart for the inconsiderate to do damage to the course. Like many things in America it is amazing how many azzhats I see abusing their privilege. There are a plethora of reasons to use a cart. Physical reasons top the list as do mountain courses and those with long walks from green to tee. I have also heard recently that some that walk for their daily job like to relax in a cart on the weekend. That was a new one for me and makes complete sense. ... But my biggest pet peeve is the ignorance, stupidity and complete carelessness I see from far too many that park their carts on the grass around the tee box. Saving what? 2 steps max but killing the grass. Same thing around greens. Why anyone would not just keep their carts on the path is just mind bogglingly selfish and inconsiderate. I used to play with a Greenskeeper of a nice course in Chicago and he said that's why you have to rope off tee boxes and greens. In a study they found when there is a worn spot, cart drivers carelessly but subconsciously drive on it. When questioned they didn't even realize they were doing it. Which is just another way to say selfish. ... Of course alcohol is a contributing factor. No reason anyone can't enjoy a round riding in a cart and drinking responsibly while caring for the golf course. But we all know that is far too often not the case. As always my theory of most everything in life boils down to, are you a considerate or an inconsiderate person and that answers most questions about poor behavior.
