All golf carts now electric at TN state parks

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Tennessee state parks are going green--and not just on the fairways.

The Department of Environment and Conservation announced all 650 golf carts used at state courses have been upgraded from gas to electric.

The switch should save about $80,000 per year as well as greatly reducing pollution.

Golf carts at Paris Landing and Pickwick Landing in West Tennessee were among the last to be upgraded.
