Can confirm.

I’ve had five in the last two years… all street legal. They are a ton of fun to use for regular around town stuff.

If golf we're a sport, that'd be true. But it's more of an activity.

And before I get down-voted to oblivion, let me explain. Sports combine technical ability with extreme physical exertion. Without the physical exertion, such as with golf, you're left with activities that nearly anyone can excel at given sufficient training.

Is archery or target shooting a sport? Bobsleigh? Chess? Darts? Croquet? Horse racing? Snooker?


There are dozens of sports that don't have extreme physical exertion.

If that were true wouldn't they be golf cars? Are carts cars? I feel like being a car is a prerequisite for being a sports car.

I didn't downvote, but you should try golf.

A sport doesn't require extreme exertion.

Golf takes physical effort, timing, coordination, and mental focus. There are competitions and rules.

Come play 2 rounds with me and tell me it's not a sport. I'll buy the beer.

TIL I’m not bad at golf, I just need to exert less physical energy. Thanks, reddit! ❤️

Ssriously though, golf is probably one of the most technical sports I’ve ever tried learning. A professional’s swing is an amalgamation of their complete and precise control over every part of their body. Nothing but respect for them.

Edit: a word

Well not entirely true. While golf carts are used primarily for golf, professionals dont actually use them in tournaments. So golf carts are more so just scooters for the lazy. Not that that's a bad thing.
