I enjoy playing alone, and most of the time when I go solo I walk. I play pretty quick, so I make sure I play when I can go at my own pace. I really dislike people running up my rear and waiting on me, because it makes me feel rushed and I hurry from shot to shot rather than move at my own pace.
I try to be the first one out of the box in the morning. I set it up the day before I play and get permission to start before the course opens. I can start before 7 am and have the course to myself. A disadvantage is the low sun right in my eyes on 1 and 3, and it's easy to lose the ball. Other than that, peace and quiet and relaxation.
The only drawback to this plan is when the dew is heavy, and my footprints and pull cart tracks are a clear trail to where I've been. The good holes show a straight line from the tee box to a spot in the fairway, straight to the green, and a nice ball track to the hole on the dewey green. The bad holes show how I walked to the left rough, shanked one to the right rough, hit one fat 20 yards, chili dipped my chip, and 3 putted. There's no hiding it.
