Default Walkable/Unwalkable Champ Courses

Which are the more walkable champ courses please.

And if you 'd like to share your opinion about less walkable ones, I welcome that too.

IMO, none of The Villages championship courses are optimum for walkers, but I were a walker, I would concentrate on the older courses, like OBH or Tierra. They seem to be designed like stand-alone golf courses, not courses designed to fit into areas not already populated by houses. The Palmer course is probably the worst, as there are several places on the course where you must travel several hundred yards between holes; including traveling on public streets. I play the championship courses twice a week, and it's unusual to see any walkers.

I work at one 3 days a week and play at least twice a week and if I see three walkers for the whole year that's a lot

So far I can't say I'm surprised. I usually only play nine holes. And I play Mallory most often. I don't walk Mallory every time I play, but at least it doesn't have the Palmer-type issues to deal with. (I agree by-the-way, I don't think you can realistically walk Palmer at all.)

Sounds like it's time I should consider saving walking for the execs.

Default Walking

Some of the execs aren't walker-friendly as well, especially when you are paired with players in carts. Mangrove, for example. Walkers get to number 7 long after their partners. And the distance from 8th green to 9th tee at Scabies seems like a half mile.

Wife and I still walk all Executive courses without a problem.
We don't play the Champioship Courses any more, but we used to walk them, but found some of our pairings frowned on having walkers with them, and two pairings were blatently hostile.
Gotta play at 100MPH!
Back home in UK most oldies still walk the Championship courses. it's the youngsters who use the carts!
