I used to walk all the time. People at my club used to jokingly ask me if I knew how to drive a golf cart. However, age and arthritis caught up with me. I was able to walk 18 this Spring while golf carts were banned on our course. Often playing two days in a row was a struggle. Carts are now allowed. My plan is to at least walk the front nine, but ride the back if it's hot or my knees are hurting. Our back nine has a couple of steep hills towards the end. Sometimes if I walk I'm so exhausted I don't play them very well.
It’s much more about the shaft than the club head. If you can tolerate the atrocity Cleveland has created with club heads power to ya. But you’ll find the shaft is a major factor in tailoring a club that works for you.🙂
Yes. Our club is private and we only have one course. We use an online system which opens at 8:00AM every morning for times one week out. Since the stay-at-home/work-from-home orders getting times is like getting concert tickets. So far my group of retirees has been able to get times and play several times a week, but it's been difficult. We're all hoping once people return to work availability will improve.
