Like a lot of people on this forum, I have to work hard to find time to play given work, family, etc. I can usually play at least one full round a week and often 1.5 to 2. I ALWAYS get to # 18 bummed that the round is over and with the desire to play more. Yesterday I walked 36 back to back on separate courses. Hot and sunny the entire time. For the first time, I got to #18 of the second round and had NO desire to play more golf. Absolutely cooked. What are your limits?

I rarely will test my limits any more. And the past week, I would not even think about playing, what with triple digit heat and the insufferable, muggy, tropical shit we are enduring right now. I cant even go in the back yard and swing for more than five minutes without becoming water logged. If I do walk, I use a push/pull cart. Unlike before, I might do as you and walk 36. At 71 years, I think I am doing pretty damned good and can keep up with guys half my age with no problem. Hell, I outdrive a great number of them. ('course, they aren't all that good to begin with).
I walked 27 holes once and that was my limit. I get too tired to play a good, focused round the next day.
Playing 18 hole round 3 straight days is my limit. But this is b/c I feel a need to put in a good practice in between rounds. I had an all you can play green fee membership one year and noticed playing everyday without practice got me into bad swing habits.
