The Walking Golfers Society

Mission Statement

The Walking Golfers Society is committed to walking when we play because of the physical, social, scoring, and experience benefits, amongst others.

We encourage others to walk when they golf and are committed to spreading awareness of the many benefits of being a walking golfer.

We respect the right of an individual to take a golf cart when they play, whether for physical or personal reasons.

However, we believe that golf carts inhibit a golfer from getting the most out of every round.

If you believe that golf is a walking game, then The Walking Golfers Society invites you to join our membership of passionate individuals who are committed to walking when they play – and having a lot of fun while doing so!

Walked 57 holes on my 57th birthday. Nov 22. 78-80-87 (and 18 for the last three holes). Played at par 69, 5396 yard Meadowlands in Chilliwack, BC on a cloudy (but rainless) day. Played several goofy rules such as nothing but 5i thru the green on #5, nothing byt 7i on #7, and a few other wrinkles to keep it interesting. Daylight was the main challenge. It was a lot of fun – about a 9 mile hike because the course layout has some long walkbacks between holes.

Also enjoyed Chambers Bay and Gearhart in 2012.

Lately I have been playing at the Mad Russian Golf Course in Millikin, CO. It has nice hills and beautiful vistas. The course has a lot of water and marshes. It is challenging and fun to walk. Longs Peak and the mountains are awesome. If in the Loveland, Fort Collins area of Colorado, be sure to try this one.

Looking for super-senior walking or riding golfers for weekday golf in the Balto-DC-Annapolis area. For various reasons, our group of regulars are thinning in numbers. We score in the 90-100 range normally. Tee dates set each week based on availability, year round. Wednesdays and Fridays are most popular days. Phone (410 268 1025) or email (r.leahy09@comcast.net
