Pull Golf Carts

If you want to have an easier time walking around the golf course, but do not have the need for a motorised golf cart, then you may want to look into buying an electric golf cart and/or golf trolley. These carriers are more than just a place to stick your clubs, they can make it simpler and less tiring to play your eighteen holes on Sunday afternoon.

Features

The motor on your electric cart should be quiet and efficient, and be able to move around the course easily, even if there are steep hills or rocky areas.

In 1618 they evolved and were made out of goose feathers. What they did was make a hollow sphere out of horse or cow hides and fill it with feathers. Then they soaked it in water, rounded it and let it dry. Once it dried you had your golf ball.
