My recent trip to Pinehurst, North Carolina, proved that point. Combined with walking around a resort, getting to the course, warming up on the range and generally hanging out before a tee time, I cruised past 10,000 steps before finishing the front nine each day. And on three of the five days I spent in the Sandhills, I went well north of 20,000 split across two courses.
