$12.99 after tax to walk 18.  It's the 'Monday' special at the local muni. 
All of the above wasn't an option....  so I picked 'Trouble off the tee'. 
I'm relatively new to the game -- fourth year -- and I still don't have a good sense of feel for my clubs. About two years ago, I started playing and practicing almost exclusively with a 52. I've got a 58 I use for sand and the occasional odd shot.  I *have* started to develop a sense of feel for the 52, and I kind of like using only one wedge.  (Well, ....okay..., it's really two.)

Depends on the rule.   If I think I might not find a ball after a shot (usually off the tee), I'll hit a provisional, but sometimes, you just get to where you think your ball is, and it's gone.  In that case, I don't do the 'stroke AND distance' thing and walk back and hit another. I just give myself a penalty and take a drop (and the distance).
I have developed a few pet peeves of course design.   I like to walk, so I prefer a course that has easy transitions from greens to tees.   I also like courses where each hole has a different feel --- where no two holes are too similar.   I also want courses that provide, at the least, 200, 150, and 100 yard markers.    Like the OP, I also prefer a course where I need to use most of the clubs in my bag.   Finally, I like there to be a good mix of...
I carry 12.   I could probably carry only 9 and play pretty much the same game.   I could get to 8 if I dropped the driver.  I'd probably do just about as well with a 4 wood off the tee.   ...but I carry 12.
A bit dated, but:
Several.  Lake Chabot, in Oakland, doesn't do too well with the wet.  Playing there in December two years ago, my brother and I both lost multiple shots (all drives from elevated tees) that plugged in the fairway.  Hit the middle of the fairway, and you just can't find the ball if it plugs.
