Does anyone walk anymore?


Recommended Posts

I walk with my push cart as much as possible. No way I am dragging my bag around the course without at least that.

Just wondering if there any walkers left. I recently returned to the joys of walking the course. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed the idea of leaving the cart behind and playing in a much more rel

Here in the SF Bay Area, most of the courses built during the past 30 years were built for riding, including long distances between the greens and tee boxes.

The older courses were built with the greens and tee boxes near each other, and those are suitable for walking.

 

 

... I found the same thing the 6 weeks I spent in Phoenix. Crazy distances from greens to the next tee box. And even the courses that allowed walkers like Ocotillo had all the holes roped off with no openings for push carts. I tried walking Aka Chin and the paths off the tee boxes were so beat up with deep cracks or heavy sand it was impossible to get my electric cart to the fairway without extreme effort that defeats the purpose of walking. I had to get a riding cart for the back 9.

Really a shame.... That's why I prefer, when possible, older and/or more natural style layouts that are conducive to walking.

 

Unfortunately, though, that does not seem to be where the majority of golfing demand is............

I walked 9 with my push cart yesterday playing alone. Everyone else I saw on the course was riding.

We generally golf playing a scramble format within our group and we all ride. I think it helps us with pace-of-play for sure. If I were to walk, I'd need to look into getting a hoofer bag and maybe even a push cart since my DLX bag is quite big and heavy. It was made for a cart after all... ;)

I don't get it.... they make the course so it's a challenge to walk... (do carts bring in that much extra revenue?) and then when you take a cart they tell you to use the 90 degree/cart path only rule.

 

Maybe they shouldn't charge so much for the cart fee....that is a bit of a scam.

I use a Ogio cart bag with my push cart and it works fine.  The cart goes well enough on it's own and I don't really feel the "extra" weight.

 

I played with 3 other guys on Sunday morning...they had carts, I walked and I didn't really notice a pace-of-play issue.

I want a pullcart that holds the clubs completely vertical at 90 degrees...every pullcart I've had including the one I have now lay the clubs down making it a pain to remove them.

Whoa!  That's great... where'd you find that adapter?

 

I've tried to create my own "adapter" using different items and haven't had any luck.  My idea is to keep the bottom of the bag where it is and just 'push' the top of the bag forward - exactly what this adapter is doing.  

 

I like it!!

I very much enjoy walking when I play.  It just seems to be more fitting to me.  I don't carry anymore though, I use a Bagboy Quad XL (a big more upright than most carts) to wheel my gear around the course and I really find that be most the enjoyable way to play.  It also helps me settle into a round better for some reason.  Fortunately the two courses I play most of my rounds at are both very walker friendly.  There is something about walking the course on a beautiful day.

 

That being said, I find that many of the better courses encourage if not require riding.  On top of that, there are a lot of courses around me that are just no fun to walk because there are so many changes in elevation throughout the terrain and tee boxes are not even close to the greens preceding them.  Because of those factors I do tend to ride a decent amount when I am not playing at my home course.

"do carts bring in that much extra revenue?"

 

Yes. If they can get the same cart out 2 or even 3 times a day .. times number of carts .. times the number of playing days .. adds up in the aggregate to a whole lotta $$$...

Use that code before the 7th & at $60 they take off 15%. You'll have to buy something else also. Lol

The only time that I ride is when I am with my daughter (2 years old) or with my Grandpa. I prefer walking for the most part. It is great exercise and allows me to enjoy the game to the fullest. However, for some reason this season I have played better while riding. Which is in contradiction to what I have done in years past. Maybe I just need to hoof it more and get into better shape!

The seat attachment is a must have imo for the clicgear. In men's league everyone laughed the first time they saw it attached to my pushcart but after a few long waits during a hot kansas day they only look at it in envy.
