    When a private or upscale public course gets a new fleet of Trolley’s where do the old ones go? Can we the society be a vehicle to help get older/used trolley’s to public courses that don’t have them? Do some clubs just throw old ones away or store them and not use them?

    I tried this at Southern Pines GC and they were not interested. Said their main customer was older people that cartball.

    Phil,

    I think i will look into this. I wouldn’t let one No detour you. Plus SP seems like it is doing everything possible to tank itself. Not that this idea is a game changer.

    We have had some issues at public courses at Gatherings last year with no trolley’s or not enough. We will focus on correcting this at public courses in 2019, especially at courses where we host walking gatherings.

    Unfortunately most places have to climb in the rafters to find trolleys and spray the dust off them before you can use it.
    My kids all have their own tuggers that we travel with because most places don’t have them available.
    When I started working in a Proshop in the early 90’s as a youth trolleys were the first thing we got out in the morning. Tuggers were the primary need for seniors that Played early….. Carts were used for shotgun start outings.
    Things have changed dramatically.

    Craig,

    You don’t think if we donated used ones from private clubs to UP courses your kids play, that they wouldn’t take them? You don’t think possibly that change could take place with the tools?

    Totally agree Ben. The fact that they are not even out front and visible anymore makes them a forgotten option.

    Craig, Lawsonia is ordering new ones. Woodcrest went semi in NJ and ordered a dozen. Sylvania cc ordered a dozen. Things are slowly getting better! We have to be the demand for them in the game!
