Abstract/Contents:Walking and pulling a cart is the ultimate expression of wealth, health and happiness in golf. Or so it ought to be. The trouble is that many golfers today don't know the joys of playing a course on foot. Besides giving your body some exercise, walking is good for your game. It helps your club selection, slows down your tempo and allows you to meet new people. The fall of American golf can be traced to the rise of the golf cart. You won't find a riding cart in Europe. America is the only country in the world where there's a stigma attached to walking with a pullcart. Fortunately, walking seems to be enjoying a modest comeback. Resorts are slowly starting to lift mandatory riding rules. The PGA Tour's Tournament Players Clubs have encouraged their golfers to walk by offering motorized pullcarts called PowaKaddys or riding carts that carry four bags. Some enterprising courses are now allowing golfers to walk, but they charge a "trail fee" of about $5 to make up for lost cart revenue, and other courses are allowing golfers to walk without paying any extra fee.
