The Walking Golfers Society is dedicated to providing information about the many benefits of walking when you golf, which is how the game was intended to be played. If you are a passionate walking golfer then please join our growing Society and help us advocate for the enjoyment of golf as a walking game.
Tom, great topic! When I was in Austin, TX a couple years ago I played with a gentleman who had his Springer Spaniel with him. The dog was fantastic and to be honest, the dog made the round more interesting. When making the turn, a woman on the porch of the clubhouse yelled down to us, “hey mister this is a golf course, not a dog park. why don’t you take your dog where it belongs!” I immediately responded, “I’ve been with this dog for 2 hrs now; and, you have just made more noise and interrupted my round more than the dog! Congrats!” Everyone on the first tee, the putting green and the groups making the turn had a chuckle.
I’ve never tried it here. I can’t imagine it would go well. I do love the idea though. As long as the owners are responsible enough to pick-up after the pet.
