Cardio would of course be good for me, but would have to be balanced against the tremendous impact on my joints. At my size, running would absolutely not be good for my knees and ankles, and feet.
Quite a few of my runner friends,some ran marathons all have had joint/bone/back even neck problems

Exactly. It's damaging enough for people with a typical runner's physique (which they must have if they could run a marathon). My ideal weight is probably 235-240, so while I'm a good ways above that right now, even my ideal weight would likely destroy my joints from running. 

I do definitely need to walk more... I've been getting lazy with the dog and our morning walk is barely over a mile. At least when I play golf I always walk the course, so that's 5+ miles for my 18-hole executive course and closer to 7-8 miles on a regulation course. It would be a much shorter total walk if I were a better golfer lol...

Running's about the only exercise I can do to keep the beer weight off, so that's I do.

I run, so I can drink beer.

I played a round walking with guys who were riding, the day after it had rained. Thus, it was cart path only. 

I'm certain they walked more steps that round than I did. Especially with most of the cart paths naturally being down the right side of holes due to most golfers hitting that predominantly that direction, but with one of the guys being a lefty who hit fades and was down the left side of the hole all day. 

Maybe you should walk instead of ride to reduce your exertion :57:

I don't mind walking and carrying my clubs, it's the cooler of Bud Fat that's too heavy to carry.

I have a push cart and a cooler that'll hold 6... https://www.amazon.com/Caddy-Daddy-Golf-Pack-Cooler/dp/B0002E3KDI/

Since I'm drinking IPA, and since I primarily play in the morning, that's more than plenty for a round lol...

I have a pull cart that I use occasionally when it's too wet for carts.

I'm 3/4 German, so I can drink warm beer.  I might be able to make it around on only 6.

My Golf bag has what they call "the bucket" on it.  It is insulated and will hold 4 to 6 beers along with an ice pack.
