I walk about 90% of the time. Some of the new courses make it very hard and I get a cart for those. I prefer to carry my bag. Pulling a cart seems more trouble than it is worth.

I don't walk much, mostly due to time. When I do I carry my cart bag. I tried renting a cart to push it around but that wobbly thing slowed me down.

I used to carry but now use a pull cart. I'm not as young as I used to be and was pretty drained by the end of my round when I carried my bag.

The heavy rental pull carts are to blame. My personal folding pull cart is way lighter and more maneuverable.

One of the reasons that I golfed where I did last summer was that it was a very walkable course.  I really prefer to walk and when I do I like to carry.  There have been times though that I'll use one of the club's three wheel "push carts".  I find those very nice versus a pull cart - probably due to the stability that the 3 wheels give.  When it is wet or when it is very hot are too great times to use a cart versus carrying.  Unfortunately a lot of the other courses that I play require a motorized cart.

Without a doubt. I see guys out there with their nice carts getting around fairly well. I can't justify the expense because more often than not I'm out before or after work so time is the issue. I walk on weekends if I can pair up with walkers but if not I catch a ride. Home course doesn't charge per rider so I can split fees or buy a few beers.

I carry 95% of the time.  I usually only use my push cart if it's going to rain (umbrella holder).  I find carrying much less work than pushing or pulling; it's less effort to simply walk with something on my back rather than actively pushing or pulling something.  I know on really hilly courses I will always carry regardless of weather.

I am getting a bit older myself so most of the time on my home course I only walk 9 in the am. Many times I walk the other 9 in the pm.

After my nap of course. I also know pretty much what clubs I can leave at home on this course. My best score on the course was shot when I only carried my 7 Iron an putter a sweet 84

When I walk, I always use a push cart.  Push carts are better for your back than carrying or using a pull cart.  I used to always carry but find that using a push carts leaves me feeling less fatigued by the end of my round and probably saves me a few strokes.

I use a push cart, my shoulder would be shot after a couple of holes if I carried.

I usually carry when playing just nine, which is most of the time.  If I play 18 I will use a push cart.

Carry, but I'm thinking about getting a pull cart as a concession to age and injury (my left leg is badly messed up, permanently). I want to keep walking for as long as I can.

I walk most of the time and I carry my bag. I use and ancient bag with only the essentials in it. It just has a single strap which suits me fine.

I have the back pack straps I only use them if the ground is uneven or I hit a real good shoot and have a long walk to get there. Wish this happen more. The thing that I like the best is the pop out legs that keep  you from having to pick the bag off the ground like in the olden days.
