Power For The Course

This Isn’t Lost Angeles, Old Chap

A British golf club offers now course buggies with sat nav systems - to stop players getting lost. Each of the $8000 vehicles is programmed with a map of West Midlands Golf Club. The hi-tech system even allows players to order a round of drinks from the bar as they make their way back to the clubhouse.

FOOTNOTE: Sit nav.

For me, David, the drinks would be the best part of the round!

I stink at golf.....even though my father-in-law, was once the top Ameridcan amature at the British Open, his skills never rubbed off on this one.

That's sad. I mean, I don't play golf, but do they really get lost?

My stepfather plays (very well, I might add) and he walks to whole course! I think it equals like seven miles and carries his own bag. It's good exercise.

Ordering drinks for a vehical.. now thats drive/driving mad.. I think if you play golf you should only drink..... Tee... ha!

I've always thought that golf was a way to ruin a good walk. Now, they've even taken away the walking.

How do they find their way around after the drinks?

Wonder if they have a caddie to bring the drinks out to them?
