Walking a golf course? Are you crazy? In Los Cabos, they'd carry you
TravelGolf.com’s own Tim McDonald got all emotional recently over how great walking the golf course can be. He noted its numerous benefits. Which apparently includes meaning he only has to break out his extensive Richard Simmons’ Sweatin to the Oldies videos for fun rather than a workout.
I used to agree with McDonald (on walking courses, not on short shorts Simmons).
Trying to walk a course in Los Cabos is like trying to pour your own water in a five-star Manhattan restaurant. You will never see such looks of horror from the employees, convinced they’ve just cost their place its lifeline rating.
At Cabo del Sol - arguably the most prestigious resort course in Los Cabos - they practically beg you to run roughshod over the fairways with that cart. Just so you - Joe Hacker unextraordinaire - are forced to make the fewest steps possible to reach your ball.
“There’s no 90 degree rule, nothing like that,'’ the starter commands. “Just drive right up to your ball.”
If you’re a VIP, they’re liable to sprinkle rose pedals below your feet for the two steps you do end up making. That’s how eager and determined the staff is to please. And they truly seem to take pride in this level of service.
If McDonald showed up in Los Cabos, there’d be four (OK, six) bag attendants carting him around the courses on a feather bed. Playing Simmons’ sweet melodies on a boom box to bring out his most zen swing thoughts.
