That is a little surprising actually. I would not have thought to add over 50% to the actual course metreage.

Will better players walk less as they don't zig zag across course so much?

I play a short course and for most holes, the next tee is beside the green just played. When I check my GPS, it usually indicates around 10K, but it's attached to the bag so it doesn't include where I park the buggy and wander around looking for balls.

The mileage counter on my MGI buggy averages 8 Kms for 18 holes at the home track. I must be wandering all over the course to clock up that yardage.:)

Mate of mine has the same gizmo. We were just discussing this topic the other day. He averages 8.5 km but that doesn't include leaving the buggy parked and wandering around looking for lost balls, walking up a rise to get a view of the green etc etc.

Playing a course that measure around 6500m off the blacks, we normally walk in the 9-9.5km range. Played with a mate off 36 one day and spent a lot of time looking for balls, walking distance showed as 11.7km! Bloody long day.

Heaps more than I thought it'd be. I assumed it'd be around 1-2km above the length of the course. Imagine how far you walk when you're extra keen and play 36 holes walking in one day....no wonder you fee wasted at the end of it...

I'd be up there in distance with my penchant for exploring the scrub and trying to find lost balls. I've got crappy eyesight so I can hit a ball further than I can reliably see where it goes!
