On the cheap end... Got these in Malaysia for about that price US ($25) and not only did they hold up well in two events in Thailand, with puddles and rain etc but they barely needed a clean at the end for the flight home.

Yes. I replaced all my Terrex quick laces with regular laces. The holes are really small though but it can be done.

Water proof shoes can be very unbreathable. Water proof is much more important when its cold out IMO. You're almost better off with a lightweight pair of shoes that dry quickly and are breathable. at least during the summer. Water proof shoes are great but aren't really all that water proof if your feet are sweating like crazy. At least for me I'd rather go with a breathable shoe that dries quickly, unless its cold out. but anyways, good luck!

It just depends on hoe the shoes achieve their "waterproofing". Gore Tex is a water proof breathable fabric so it makes for good shoes. A bit more expensive though. Merrell puts a thin layer of plastic between the liner and shell which makes their shoes non breathable.

I think if you play in the morning, waterproof shoes are the way to go.

Waterproof and breathable don't go together.

Light shoes, not waterproof, with merino wool socks. Can't beat it.

At least half the rounds I play require waterproof/gtx shoes. Morning rounds, even on a 90* day, where you can kick gobs of water around in the grass. Wooded courses where the sun doesn't hit spots from where it rained 3 days before. On hot days it's all about rotating fresh socks.

Not required, you just like it.
I can't stand the swampy, stale environment of a waterproof shoe.
Far better for me to have a shoe that allows airflow and pair it with excellent merino wool socks. The socks are the key.
