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!

Then you play courses with 50 or 100 m green to tee add another 1.5km think ellenbrook at the vines or the burswood 20 years ago with that 300m path you walked 4 times in 18 holes before they moved the clubhouse.

Played a practice round today at Redland Bay and put the GPS tracker on my Samsung S2 to record the journey (My Tracks for Android). No one else around, so was able to play a couple of balls to more accurately reflect the typical 4 ball comp walk. Reddie Bay is about 5850m off the Blue tees. Mr Track Stats as follows; Total Distance: 10.80kms Total time: 3.34.03 Hrs Average Speed: 3.03kmh Max Speed 9.36kmh

Really? You average 3.03 through the mangroves? All dependant on the tides obviously.
