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.
I loved the holes at Dormey Club in Pinehurst area, but felt it was a terrible walking course. The walking often felt disjointed from the course. You are forced to walk in ways that the course disappears. I think they really blew it there.
Dormie was just purchased last week. The same owners as Ballyhack and few other courses they own. I will be curious to see if they fix the walking paths. The course plans to be private in the future when they get enough members.
I agree on Dormie, in its current state. When it first opened, it was designed to be walked, and had paths and bridges on several holes that required them. Hoping they do restore the walker-friendly features, because it was actually an awesome walk, with only one or two minor (in my opinion) hiccups.
Noting that I have not played in North America I question if there is any such thing as bad walks. Here in the UK, I must admit that nay bad walks always seem to be more down to my poor game than the course, also many of the out of the way courses have, as yet, not been able to afford carts so we are rich in only walkable courses. Everything seem sweet when I feel content with my game, more so the walking if I am playing the course for the first time.
