One short course that is a tough walk: PresidioOne really long, hard course that is not a hard walk: Kiawah Island Ocean
Perhaps the back nine of the Hackett and the Kilgore nine at Carne. Wonderful walk over and around some of Irelandís largest dunes with spectacular views. Walks like this are to die for (or from😁).
Forest Highlands and Cascata are two that I think are impossible to walk.
I love the course but I found Pikewood in WV to be a very, very challenging walk. And the course was designed as a walking course with not a cart in sight. It's a first order hike.
There are some courses that are pretty much impossible for the average guy to walk, but if they weren't designed to be walked at all, I don't see the point of naming them here.Erin Hills and Chambers Bay are both walking only, and in neither case did it seem like they planned for it.
Erin Hills was the last golf course I walked. Uncle Dickie D can attest to the aftermath. Chambers Bay wasn't too bad if you paced yourself uphill.What is the distance of Highland Links?
I guess a caught EH on a good day. I played last month on day 5 of a 5 day trip and it was my eighth course played. Sunny and warm, but not too humid. I just did not feel the walk was bad, I had a caddie so that definitely helped out. Other than the transition where you take shuttle (like Bandon Trails) I found the walk enjoyable.

Was concerned about electric golf carts being able to manage the day, and was assured that the cart would run all day. Since electrics have more torque available, I have to wonder why someone suggested having gas carts was an indicator of a tough walk.
