I hate cart paths. They’re a menace and diminish the game of golf in my opinion.  You will see no cart paths at the Old Course in St. Andrews, ever.  The revenue generating aspect of cart paths, especially for American/resort golf is a fact of life for most courses. Without that extra revenue many more courses would go under.

On my recent HOG World Tour stop at Pechanga in Temecula, California I saw a fun twist on cart paths.  Rather than having small streams go under them, the resort has the water flowing over them.  If you must have cart paths, might as well have some fun with them!

A golfer in my group named Mike jokingly said the flooded cart paths were the main reason he chooses to golf at Pechanga because he likes to get a running start and fly through the water in his golf cart.  Me being the opportunist I am told him to let me have my camera ready before he did it.  I managed to snap the pic below at the absolute perfect time!

That’s a different kind of water hazard at Pechanga!

The unique cart paths were just one of the interesting aspects of playing at Pechanga. More to come.
