As more and more courses start to open after being shutdown by the Corona Virus restrictions, many are doing so with cart restrictions or walking only. That's certainly understandable, and I wanted to get use this thread to get some overall thoughts from those that were exclsuviely riders in the past that will be walking upon golfs return, either on your own or due to the restrictions. As somone who rides probably 99% of my rounds, I'm very intriqued on how this will all shape out for my golf. My 1% of walking is usually at a destination course with a caddy, such as a Pinehurst, Whistling Stratis, or Bandon. I can't even recall the last time I walked and carried my bag for more than a 4 or 5 hole loop at my course. While I have walked those resort courses very recently and with no issues, it was on courss that are not terribly dififcult to walk. My home course where I work and play is entirely different. ovre 95% of our play prior to the Pandemic was ridingn. Before we were shutdown completely by the state Stay at Home Restrictions were were open for walking only for a few days, and we filled our tee sheets each day. Partlyy I'm sure due to a very low rate we offered and beauutiful weather those few days. I've een lookng at push and electirc carts a lot the past few days, and have read all the reviews and threads here and other plces and have pretty much settled on a few that I are at the top of my list. Both push and electric. However, before I were to make a large investment in an electric cart, I have to determine if walking our course, even with an electric or push cart is going to be physically feeasable fo rme. One plus during this stay at home, I've lost 14 pounds and on top of 20 lost after a surgery in Novembe, I'm currently at the lightest I've been in over 15 years. So that should help. But I am worried about the layout of the course and the distance between some holes, it's not like walking a typical muni that has tees and greens located with a few yards of each other. So let's hear all your thoughts from those who were riderss that have or are planning on doing mostly walking and of course from the lng time walkers for any help or suggestions when you're playing a course that is not really walking friendly. I of course know to look for short cuts where you can leave your cart/bag and come back to it after putting out or teeing off. But hopefully we can get some good discussionns going here on the virtures and pitfalls of walking as things reopen.
