Golf carts can't fly but you can turn your airplane into a golf cart. It's easy, just throw your golf bag into your plane and fly to JB Golf in Farmingoton, Ca. JB Golf is located on the SFO sectional just east of Stockton (KSCK) and is marked as J-B on the chart. It's airport designator is CN29 accrording to Airnav.com. You can find info on J-B here: http://www.airnav.com/airport/CN29
Prices are $8 for 9 holes and $10 for 18 (playing the same 9 twice). It is a short part 3 course but who cares because you landed your airplane ON the golf course! Drag the strip once to warn the golfers you are coming then use your best short/soft field techniques to land next to the 4th fairway. The strip is 1800 feet long but is only 30 feet wide so keep it in the middle. The strip is marked restricted on the chart but the owner welcomes any pilot with the skill levels necessary to land on a short narrow grass strip.
Here are a few pictures from my recent trip to JB Golf in my flying golf cart:

Just found out that Mike Terpstra and I had our airplanes photgraphed by satellite as we were parked at Airventure 2011 ! If you go to Google Earth or Google Maps and zoom into Whittman Regional Airport at Oshkosh you will find our planes parked among the thousands of airplanes there.
Here is the link: Whittman Regional Airport satellite image from Google Maps
Here is a photo to save you some time.

Two members of Chapter 90 made the 1500+ mile journey to Oshkosh this year. Our president Mike Terpstra and our webmaster Scott Van Artsdalen both flew in loose formation (approximately one day apart) and arrive safely. What's more they both returned!
I wrote up my trip on my personal blog, you can read about it here: http://www.airprayer.net .
It's a fun trip that everyone should try to make at least once in their lifetime. Why don't you add it to your "bucket list?"
