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.

    • 68 - 72 (-4) : Really good weekend. Every part of my game was on point. I´m finally hitting more greens, and more GIR means shotting lower scores. Hugh improvement in my irons accuracy in the last weeks, a bit better dispersion with my driver and decent short game makes the game easier and more fun. Keeping the ball in play is crutial, i played with the same ball the last 4 rounds, no penalty´s. This summer looks good so far.   
    • The 9th, thus Rule 9. First the Clif Notes version: Ball moved? By who or what and what we’re to do about it. BALL MOVED BY THE PLAYER Except on the putting green or during a search, if a player either accidentally or intentionally causes their ball in play to move or picks up their ball when not allowed by the Rules, the ball must be replaced.  The penalty is one stroke. (R9.4b) BALL MOVED ON PUTTING GREEN If a player accidentally moves their ball or ball-marker on the putting green, the ball or ball-marker must be replaced. No penalty. (R13.1d) BALL MOVED DURING SEARCH If the player or anyone else accidentally moves the player's ball while looking for it, the ball must be replaced.  No penalty to anyone. (R7.4) BALL MOVED BY OUTSIDE INFLUENCE If it is known or virtually certain that a player's ball has been moved by someone or something else, the ball must be replaced. No penalty to anyone. (R9.6) BALL MOVED ON ITS OWN If a player's ball is moved by natural forces such as wind, water or gravity, the ball must be played from its new location. No penalty. (R9.3) Exception: On the putting green, if the ball moves on its own after having been lifted and replaced, the player may not play the ball from the new location and the ball must be replaced. No penalty. (R13.1d2) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Rule 9 - Ball Played as It Lies; Ball at Rest Lifted or Moved Purpose of Rule: Rule 9 covers a central principle of the game: “play the ball as it lies.” If the player’s ball comes to rest and is then moved by natural forces such as wind or water, the player normally must play it from its new spot. If a ball at rest is lifted or moved by anyone or any outside influence before the stroke is made, the ball must be replaced on its original spot. Players should take care when near any ball at rest, and a player who causes his or her own ball or an opponent’s ball to move will normally get a penalty (except on the putting green). Rule 9 applies to a ball in play at rest on the course, and applies both during a round and while play is stopped under Rule 5.7a. What’s covered in the Rule: 9.1 Ball Played as It Lies 9.2 Deciding Whether Ball Moved and What Caused It to Move 9.3 Ball Moved by Natural Forces 9.4 Ball Lifted or Moved by Player 9.5 Ball Lifted or Moved by Opponent in Match Play 9.6 Ball Lifted or Moved by Outside Influence 9.7 Ball-Marker Lifted or Moved https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules/rules-2019/rules-of-golf/rules-and-interpretations.html#!ruletype=fr&section=rule&rulenum=9 https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules/rules-2019/rules-of-golf/rules-and-interpretations.html#!ruletype=interp&section=rule&rulenum=9
    • Hey y'all! I'm Chris from South Carolina here!  Finally bought my first beginner set after years of flirting with game!  Can't wait to pick them up this week!  I am totally excited to learn from you fine men and women about this great game!   
    • I prefer to walk. But will ride if the green fee includes cart or if my friends ride.
