VP Trish: Golf Carts

Registration continues for the National Golf Tournament; I received several more yesterday. There are also a few more Nests represented. Not every District has participants. Wouldn’t it be cool if each District had at least one foursome! I guess asking each Nest would be stretching it!! But is it?!!

Nest 610 is well on their way to being prepared for all of us! Tournament Chair, Greg Wieser and I communicate on a regular basis. Please submit your entries and don’t forget about being a hole sponsor!

Tournament chair Greg Wieser and his son recently golfed at a course in Colorado—look at that view!

Last week while on vacation, John and I took Ryan and Ryanna to Adventure Zone (in Geneva on the Lake, Ohio). When we were purchasing their fun package, the woman at the counter informed us that Ryan was tall enough to drive a go kart! Well, Ryan was not interested as he pointed out to me that he did not know how to manipulate the steering wheel or work the gas or brakes. My smart, sensible boy! The next day, we rented a golf cart. We taught both of them how to drive the cart, allowing each of them a few turns. While they still need a bit more practice, maybe next time we go to Adventure Zone, Ryan will be prepared!

Golf carts were originally made to transport women to the grocery store. They were not used on golf courses until the early 1970’s. The original ones were three wheelers in a Vespa style and were gas fueled. During the gas rationing period of WWII, the electric cart was invented. Obviously, golf carts are used for many purposes including transporting folks in communities.

So many carts are used in Arizona that back in 2014, a law was passed that allowed the drivers to drive closely to the right-hand side of the road. Prior to that, there were citations issued because they weren’t driving in the center of the lane.

When I started golfing in the early 90’s, one had a choice of a cart with or without a roof. Being the sun-worshipper I was, we always got one without. Baking in the sun was great for my tan but literally drained us. Now, I don’t even know of a place to rent one without the roof!

Any questions, please contact me vptrish@polishfalcons.org.
