Blast from the Past: Indian Boundary’s First Golf Cart

IB 1972 Cart

It’s the most fun you can have on four wheels, ah, make that three wheels.

George Dunne, Frank Stein and Lorenzo Carson pose for a photo in 1972 while introducing the very first motorized golf cart to Indian Boundary Golf Course.  Fifty-two years after the widely popular Northside Chicago course opened, local golfers were cruising down the fairways in these stylish people movers.
