I am looking for a walking golf course in Southwest Florida round Naples/Ft.Myers? Can you help?

Check out Fort Myers Country Club, it's a restored Ross course that is now a muni. Very flat and walkable.

Sand Valley in central WI should be in your list. Best part is you can choose to carry your own bag, use a pull cart or a regular or fore caddie. No cart paths!! No houses!

The OLD WHITE TPC at the Greenbrier. Easy track to walk and since caddie mandatory, do it right and call ahead requesting a walking caddie

Love to hear people's thoughts on awful 'walking fee' added, in some cases to greens fee charges?

The Dormie has a new caddie master...... You have to reserve your caddy at least a day in advance . They also offer single bag caddies. Pine needles is a great course to walk. The caddie fees are very affordable. Pinehurst 2 is a must walk with a caddie!

Great courses you have chosen. I would add Memorial Park in Houston plus others like Palm Beach Golf (18 holes of beautiful ocean view 3 pars) mentioned in my building 100 Great Golf walks. www [dot] golfwalks [dot] com

Also I would separate out the five Bandon courses. My favorite is Bandon Trails (a fantastic walk in the woods, like your own private fairway) followed by Old MacDonald (replicates famous holes by super-sizing the fairways, bunkers and greens).

I walk and carry my bag, unless it is 100 degrees or distances from greens to tees are real long...But my suggestion is that when people make tee times they specify if they are riding or walking so that the starter can pair walkers with each other and same for riders. That way they could space them better and improve the pace of play.

The Dormie Club--not sure. I played it yesterday and brought my pull cart. Was told they did not allow pull cartsw, but I could carry if I wanted. So choices are carry on your back, take a caddy or cart.

Dormie actually makes it rather hard to walk. They won't allow you to carry your own bag on most days and at most times. You need to either take a cart (no up charge) or pay for a caddie. It is a wonderful course to walk, but they appear to have deviated from their roots as opposed to embracing them. Great course though - highly recommended.
