My regular course is walking only while the Covid-19 stay in place measures are in force, though many other local courses are allowing (motorized) carts. How about you? I’m only curious about open courses, so no “other” vote. Thanks.

Walking only means no senior league for us as many players can’t manage walking 18, 6-7 miles up and down hills. Bummer.

We have carts here.  They are one rider per cart unless you are immediate family living in the same household.  No way to truly enforce that but it's the guideline.  Personal carts are also allowed but still with only one rider per cart.

We are running our fleet at one rider per car. It has put lots of pressure on the outside services team to clean and sanitize double the number of cars that we would usually each day. There is also something about seeing groups of 4 cars on every tee and fairway that looks wrong...

We are not open yet, but have had planning meetings and laid out our plans.  On the topic of carts. We are a 36 hole facility, so this is our plan once we are able to open.

One course will be 100% walking.

The other course will be 1 rider carts, with tee times spread out at 15 minutes as opposed to 10.    This will eliminate two tee times per hour, also every four hours we will block out some tee times, to give us a chance to get carts back in and cleaned.  We have approximately 150 carts, so we should be fine.

My course did that for a week before the shutdown, and I expect that to happen when we reopen.  Our pro sat on the deck and was lamenting about the number of carts on the tee boxes.  My wife and I couldn't ride together when we play with her brother from Seattle.  The course was short of carts at 1pm, so I gave up my cart and walked.  

I guess we will find out next Monday.  I haven't heard if the courses will open in WA on May 4, but they are acceptation tee time reservations!!!

I suspect that’s why my regular course is walking only. It would clearly be more expensive to double the number of carts plus sanitize them far more thoroughly between rounds - so players would have to be willing to pony up more $?

Maybe this virus will hasten adoption of single rider carts, IIRC there was a MGS FP article on that within the past year? Odds are this won’t be our last pandemic, though hopefully they won’t be frequent.

My course is one rider per cart unless you're a family member living in the same house, but I walk anyway. I think they've lengthened the tee times to 10 minutes as well.

I keep thinking it looks like a kiddie ride at a fair, the rows of carts snaking along the paths.

This is where all of our courses are at.  One per cart, unless family members, longer spacing between tee times.  I've been walking as much as possible as courses are crowded. it cuts down on any waiting between shots.

That's pretty standard fare on all the private courses I've been on including the one we belong to. Everyone's cart is set up for their preferences; everything from side curtains and heaters to Bluetooth speakers.

Completely fine with a few groups of 4 or 5 individuals in their private cars. That makes complete sense at a private club.

I still think that it looks wrong...

My regular course that reopened walking only in late March, is reporting they’re going to allow carts with single riders again starting May 8. I sure hope so!

I've played 3 different courses since all of this started. The one closest to me started simply by recommending one-rider carts before deciding to make the course walking only. Another course I've frequented have done one-rider carts and it doesn't seem like they'll be changing that. The most recent course I played has been walking only from the outset. 

The course with carts is the one I've frequented the most lately - not because of the carts, but because it is the course my friends like to play. I'd probably frequent the course I played last week more often if I could, but my buddies here aren't as big on the walking.

One per cart here. Most of the people at my local course would usually use a cart but a large chunk of them are walking now. Being a regular walker myself, it's interesting to see that the walkers out number the cart riders for the time being.
