The Driving Range

Combine golf & go-carts in one range.

Why not combine a golf driving range with a go-cart track - golfers could get their rocks off by roasting passing go-carts with a barrage o' balls. Think about it: you're pissed at your kids, why not take 'em to the go-cart track for some fun* - and you can spend your hour taking aim and occasionally biffing them all under the disguise of "fun". It would appease the masses - the typical passive/aggressive middle-aged american would have a field day here.

I came up with this idea one day while trying to crank drives at the ball-picker-upper at the local driving range.

*some additional safety equipment required.

       In Thailand they have guys going around on motorcycles, towing a trailer, to pick the balls up. Unfortunately the motorcycles are covered in wire mesh. No fun.

       Already happens at driving ranges.People try to hit the kid in the tracter picking up the balls.

       I figure balls on the go-cart track could really mess up traction.   

       *Much more additional safety equipment required.   

       Other wise I have to say that I would go driving more often if there were one of these in my town.
