Getting to your mall parking space by golf cart may be not be on par with actually hitting the links- but shoppers at the Tanglewood Mall are NOT complaining.

A bunch of carts are now doing winter duty at the mall.
They're part of the Tanglewood Mall Shuttlebug Service offered this holiday season.
The mall manager came up with the idea.
She used golf carts at another mall she worked at for security.
The shuttlebug service was a logical transition.
