If i see someone looking for a lost disc, I typically help them look for a little while if the course is not crowded, so that kind of stuff will add distance as well.

One of our locals posted distances walked for two courses.
Mt Airy was 2.12 miles. About 7200 feet from tee to pin.
Idlewild was 3.91 miles. 9415 shorts or 10356 in longs.

Yeah, and don't forget trips back to the car for more beer.

Get a little Pedometer or one is built into iPhone "Health" app, or there are better pedometer apps for mobile phones.

But ya, around 2 miles. I typically do ~20 holes at Delaveaga twice a week before work, and its about 2.5 miles. The full course of 27 is 3+. Pinto lake is 3+ for 18 holes, lots of walking between holes - but beautiful.

Ryan Ranch I end up walking more, and have had 4-5 miles there, probably chasing some discs around.

CSUMB if you do the Worlds positions for 27 holes is more like 4-5 miles. One day did Cypress and Oaks, and spent a lot of time looking for Discs and got 6.5 miles.

It is good exercise!

When I first started playing DG it was a reason to hike. I wore a garmin running gps watch (I run/bike a lot) and measured what a typical round was. It always seemed to be in that 2.5-3.0 mile range (regular round including throws).

It was wierd because it was in that 2.5-3.0mile range no matter what course from shorter below 6,000ft par 55 ones to longer 7,000+ft par 60+ ones.

For a 27 hole tournament at Hawk Hallow I have 11.94 miles for the day. I figure a good 8 miles of that is on the course. Along with 115 flight of stairs for the day, so about 90 of them are on the course.

This was tracked using a fitbit.

I carry my pedometer in my pocket on the course because it has a clock as well. On my local course 18 holes is about 2.25 miles. I usually do a round of both the short and long when I can and it ends up about 4.5 miles.

^This. The distance between holes can differ greatly from course to course.

Some courses have holes so close together that that people on one tee often have to be on the lookout for incoming discs coming from the previous hole. Others are spaced out so much they really make you wish you had a cart.

This can also depend largely on the type of course. Fairly open layouts don't provide much in the way of protection from discs coming at you from other holes, so good designers tend to space holes out judiciously, to avoid the situation I mentioned initially.

Typically, well-wooded holes can safely be strung closer together, since the trees and brush provide a barrier to protect players on the next tee.

Might also depend on what else is going on near the course. If the course has to work around other pre-existing park activities in a responsible manner, there will probably be some longer walks between holes, to keep other park goers safe.

I played with a friend who used her iPhone app when we played a round. It said we walked two miles.
