I would love to get into the habit of walking more but as a high handicapper I get worried about being slow or pace of play. I’m not slow over the ball but sometimes finding mine slows things down and add on the walking vs riding time and it makes me feel like I have to rush.

I am a walker because I am a golfer. I am pushing a Clicgear and it's great. Living in Quebec, the weather allows to walk with ease. A few times during summer, when it is over 32 degrees celsius (90 Fahrenheit), I will use a cart specially when in competition.

Absoflippinlutely! I only take a cart when I have to. Love the walk - exercise benefits, more time to chat with fellow players, a little more time to 'rest' between shots. I still carry as well (Sum Mountain 2.5+) as I can't even be bothered to switch to a pull cart, although that may come sooner or later!

I always walk for my Friday night 9-hole league (with a Clicgear pushcart) and any other time I play 9. I only ride when I play 18.

Question for all the walkers out there. Do you find it's any less social walking the course with your buddies vs riding a cart together? I feel like I definitely have more conversation in the cart on the fairways as opposed to just chatting on the tee box and the green. 

Always waiting for the next best time to jump on a new piece of gear!

Yes and no! I tend to pick friends that slice into the same woods as me when I’m walking!

Walking with a caddie is one of my main indulgences in life.  So much more enjoyable to play golf that way.

... High index players "rushing" isn't a bad thing. We all started out playing poorly and felt rushed. As long as you take one practice swing max, and no practice swings after hitting a shot I never mind playing with high index golfers that need a little extra time because they hit more shots or need to search for balls. We were all there. It is easy to be mentally overwhelmed when you first start or shoot high numbers so playing faster which feels like rusing gives you less time to think. Take all the time you want and multiple practice swings at the range but on the course just hit the ball, go find it and hit it again.

yeah not so much worried about that in terms of this thread. Was more talking about that aspect of my game + the walking taking longer. Would love to walk but being conscious of my play being longer due to looking for balls and more shots makes me feel more obligated just going the cart route.

I walk 80 percent of the time. However my walking doesn't include carrying my golf bag..

I have a Stewart electric golf trolly with "FOLLOW MODE". Its truly "a walk in the park"!!

No slupping a golf bag on my shoulder & off my shoulder.  On off, on off... or pushing a trolly cart for 6 / 7 miles.  Just purchased the newest model. AGAIN it walking Freely!!!

Just got done walking 9 with the wife in under2 hours . Try to walk as much as I can. I use a push cart cause the back can’t handle carrying golf bag anymore.

 I prefer walking than taking a cart, but a lot of the courses down here are so spread out it makes walking 18 a little difficult (it can be done) so usually take a cart if doing 18.

Trying to get back to walking the course.  I bought an Alphard V2 unit with a Rovic RV1S cart to attach it to using some leftover pro shop credits (covered most of it) so I can walk without having to push or carry clubs around our fairly hilly courses.

Nursing a bum knee right now but looking forward to getting my walking in while playing my favorite pastime!

Nice to see a lot of forum members posting in this thread! Very encouraging, too, as I believe golf IS a walking game..!

I understand course design in some instances makes it impractical to walk, but - maybe the course was not designed well enough...? 🤔

As to the social aspect question - imho there's lots of time for beers and talk after the round. But there's no reason why that can't happen during .. while walking .. if that's what people prefer.

Yes, I also understand that riding carts are a revenue source to the course but consider the flip side -- carts cost money to lease and maintain and to recharge; they cost employee hours to clean out and park in the barn and bring out in the morning; then there are many miles of cart path to pave and maintain; and then, unfortunately, there are a few (expletives deleted) that drive the carts causing damage to fairways and sometimes to greens or their surrounds... 😞

Clubs and courses could rent _nice_ push carts or even electric ones for a reasonable fee .. and should, again imho, be encouraging more people to walk for their health and also for course maintenance considerations.

... Amen to that. The amount of people I see driving their carts just off the path next to the tee box saving 1 or 2 steps max and killing the grass, then doing the same around the greens is so discouraging. Watching some lazy azz in front of me drive their cart between the green and the bunker right on the fringe is maddening. Caught up to a group doing that in front of us last week and when they asked "How is it going" I told them not so good watching them destroy my favorite course. As you can imagine it was met with profanity, mind my own business and I need to drink a few beers and chill. As Bill Burr commented "What did you think they were gonna say?"

Always worth reporting to pro shop. They might not do anything but at least you can vent about it. Sad world we live in. Even senior former govt workers feel they can drive the green.

I walk my local golf course, I like that they give you the opportunity to play the back 9 before 7:30 a.m. any day.  Walking it gives you the cheaper option haha.  I use my push cart to get around and get some more steps in for the day.

I enjoy walking but harder to find other guys that want to. One of my local courses doesn't allow walking, front side is ok, but back is a chore with huge distances between greens and tees. Too bad as there are lots of young golfers there. On the flatter courses you see a ton of guys walking, but the younger players all ride. They need drinks, stereos, cigars. Just different.
