    Finishing (walking) would have meant dragging myself through the last holes, just to say I did it - but was not having fun at that point, so called it a day.

    Just not as tolerant of the heat as I used to be.
    I applaud you for walking ,i dont think i saw a walker today.

      Come to think of it Howie, my mind started to drift right after bending over to put my ball on a low tee for the par 3!!

      • Played two hours of tennis doubles - started at 11:30am - now back home cooling down - that’s a hit one out there.

        • Went out at 8:30 this morning - walking and were done just after Noon. It was a perfect morning for golf.

          • I walked and carried today. Perhaps my age is catching up to me....

            • Not sure if I remember such a perfect weekend golfing in a long time (Ontario that is). Too bad my game is getting worse and worse of late.

                My short game is probably the best it has ever been and I am holding on to my 11.5 Index by a thread, but I have lost so much distance with aging and arthritis that it puts pressure on my psyche

                • To use the Tiger Woods quote: "It was (will be) TUFF out there today, but I played well ..." --- the first part will be 100% true today, hope the 2nd part comes true as well

                  ...still planning to walk front 9 and ride the back 9 (Braeben ) but my Wise and Beautiful Wife "suggests" against walking. I'm 100% sure that when all is done, I should've listenned to her --- we should have many more Women Leaders in the World ...

                  • Walked 18 on Saturday the 6th. Later in the day it was quite pleasant.

                      I'm sure most will agree with the last statement,

                      • I played Scarlett Woods today at midday. Rain started on the 3rd hole, by the 9th it was torrential, didn't let up until the 15th, was sunny for the last 2 holes.

                        I only saw one other group all round, 3 kids doing golf camp, probably with nothing else to do - felt like I had the entire course to myself - got around in just over 2 hours.

                        Once I was fully soaked, it was actually a lot of fun, except for when my gloves got so wet, I let go of my club mid swing, and almost hit a tree.

                          • Really hot out there today, looked for shade on every hole

                            • Walked 18 today. The pro shop 'advised that we ride' due to the temperature.
                              The first 9 was a little bit of a struggle. Cooled down somewhat for the back 9.
                              Consumed 4 very large (Yeti style water bottles) of fluid, without having to 'relieve myself'. So must have sweated it out.

                              • Walked 18 this morning, the back nine was the “Valley” course so there were pockets where there was no breeze. Those were extremely hot places. Have to admit, it took a lot out of me.
