Yep - my course had this. It was used to enforce cart path only on the days it was needed, keep carts away from the greens, and allow them to monitor where carts were on the course. It was especially useful since they had a ton of outings/scramble tourneys, so people who weren't members were constantly on the course.Fill me in on this. Carts have GPS that only lets them go into certain areas? So if you roam off the cart path it auto stops?
I have honestly never heard of this before. Is the reasoning that the carts were ruining the course?
Members figured out how to get around it if necessary, but only if absolutely necessary. You can pop it into ranger mode to see where everyone is on the course, or make it handicap accessible to allow to skip the restricted areas.
