How many dedicated walkers. I walk everywhere I'm allowed.  Luckily I belong to club that encourages it. I carry a Sunday Bag a Ping Moonlite that I only carry what I know I can get around course with management tomorrow I'm carrying a 19, 23 degree hybrid 7 iron and putter a few balls and tees.

I walk all early spring and all fall. Late spring and summer are just way too hot and humid for me to walking in this area. I’d say 70% of the golfers at my club walk.

I walk about 85%-90% of my rounds with a trolley. 

I tend to play more consistent golf walking. 

About the only time I ride is during tournaments, and when on a golf road trip. 

Our local courses prefer that walkers ride in the triple digit hot months. They even lower the cart fees a little during those months.

I love to walk, and have recently begun to do it more consistently.  I bought a motorized trolley to move my clubs up and down the hills at my home course.

I walk almost exclusively. It’s more cost efficient for me and I find golf more enjoyable when I walk.  Glad your club encourages walking.

I walk when I can and use a push cart. I will only ride on real hilly courses or when I it very hot and I’m playing 18

In the Netherlands (where I live) it is common to walk and carts are more for elderly players.

Walk whenever I can. Usually it's about December to March. After that....it gets blazing hot.😎

With cart fees running $14 or more at our area courses, I try to walk as often as possible.

Walking is really the biggest reason why I play the courses I do. They are reasonable flat and the tees are right near the previous hole's green.

I walk everywhere I can, and will select courses based on walking. I find riding in carts slower and substantially less fun.

I walk all the time since relocating. I use a push cart. I got a motorized one earlier this year but had to send it back for repair, so pushing again for a bit. I have walked almost exclusively for over 2 years now.  I had a power cart previously but feel walking is better for my health. I do go through more shoes, lol.  150 rounds last year

I always walk with my push cart. I hate when i´m forced to ride a cart on certain courses.

Wish I could go back to walking.  Old and somewhat injured body no longer makes that possible except on a pitch and putt course.  My last course, before I could not walk any more, was a nice t somewhat rolling course of 7,700 yard in a beautiful area, very tree lined.

I miss it and hope someday my feet will improve enough to again take, in the words of Mark Twain, another "good walk spoiled".

I walk with a push-cart for my clubs whenever I can.  The exception is when I'm playing Palm Springs courses in the summer, in which case I'll ride.

    • It was a short 125 yard par 3 slightly up hill.  A well struck pitching wedge, but you can't see the bottom of the flag so didn't see it land.  I thought I'd gone too long, but my friend thought it was close.  Turns out he was right! I wish I'd taken some pictures from ground level, so I had a better chance of determining whether any part of the ball was underground.  Wasn't 100% sure of the rules at the time and didn't want to hold up the group behind by taking too long. It seems by the strict letter of the law that, as I don't think any of the ball was under the surface it isn't a hole in one.  But that just seems wrong as it was over half way in to the hole and clearly leaning in to the hole.  My friend gently centred the flag and it dropped in the hole. I'm just glad it wasn't my first hole in one as I would be really gutted right now!
    • I fully understand It may seem like from my post that I'm some kind of macho distance guy ... I've certainly seen my fair share of rolled eyes from other golfers around distances ... or from a nasty slice/hook etc ... something I'm working on as a 15HC player (as where the 3w is coming in with much more fairways hit these days) ... personal I think if you can constantly hit the ball cleanly with controlled power then why wouldn't you ... many times the difference between a 110mph drive and 118mph is an emotional factor, the actual distance isn't much at the end(Plus accurately is far better in lower controlled swing)   ...but sometimes after a 3-4 putt blowing a birdie etc, the tension releases makes me swing harder on the next tee..or maybe Bunker 260 out and I really want to pass it ...  I'm sure many Golfers are the same and hit the ball down there with a normal feeling swing. -----example-- where I was pissed at distance off the club....  last hole game very close to my best round 2nd shot PAR4...153 yards out to an ever slightly elevated green usually hit a PW full swing to around that distance.. Now the ball was in the first cut rough 10-15mph headwind so thought to take the 9 out full swing and it came off the face perfect high slight draw ... yes here we go >>>> down it came landed behind green ran up a gravel pathway onto some rough easy 15-20yards further than I expected ...Gutted 4 more shots to close out the hole..cost us the match and outright second place for the day
    • Thanks to all for sharing. I probably will find and join a league (hoping there are weekend leagues, great idea btw to meet other golfers). I will keep encouraging my friends and family to learn golf, joining a golf group at social media will help too. And, yep, playing alone occasionally could be nice.   
    • I do believe that some golfers "want it" more than others simply by putting more hours and effort into becoming great.  From what I've read about Hogan, I'd have to say that he wanted it more than others.  I'd say the same thing about Bryson.  And, of course, Tiger.  This is true in all fields, not just golf, and to me it's as plain as day.
