Golf!

Just bought a set of golf clubs.....without thinking of how i'm going to get it to the course

I was thinking that a cool idea would be to attach the buggy to the rear of the bike....like a trailer

Anyone carried golf clubs on a bike?

I haven't done it, but there is a bloke who lives in my area who does just that. I see him riding to/from the golf course usually a couple of times a week.

+1 the Wike trailer

I'm getting that one for my dad, because it seemed the easiest to detach and use as a course cart. I really like their hitch.

I've suggested to the Xtracycle people that they should come up with a golf club bag holder for their WideLoader.

Yes it is. How many courses allow it, I wonder?

I do golf course maintenance. While I don't have the answer to your question, any course that disallows something like that because "it's damaging to the turf" is lying. Particularly if they allow golf carts. The Turf Trike is very cool.

I carry my clubs on a Burley Flatbed Trailer:

to get from the house to the course and back.

How do you carry your clubs from hole to hole?

Usually in a rental cart, or by the shoulder straps when I walk.
