Here’s a great topic for discussion. If you are walking a Munro round, and particularly if you plan to walk more rounds, do you count yourself as a golfer or a banker.
A Munro golfer is one that walks “pure” rounds. They walk every round from start to finish, one Munro after another.
A Munro banker walks multiple rounds at once. So while walking round number one they also bag Munros for their next round or even their third round.
These terms, of course, only apply to people who are waking more than one round of Munros, but these Munroists are increasing in number.
While I already knew of the debate about walking a “pure” round or “mixed up” rounds I had not heard the terms, golfer’s round and banker’s round, until interviewing Scotland’s two leading Munro bagging ladies, Anne Butler and Hazel Strachan.
Hazel has compleated (correct spelling!) six Munro rounds as a golfer. Anne is completing rounds six and seven concurrently, so she is a Munro banker.
I think I have mostly met Munro bankers but I might be wrong. The G-Force is a banker, he walked many Munros of his second round while doing his first round.
I don’t have a view either way so I am not suggesting that one round is more valid than another. I just think it’s an interesting topic.
Are you a Munro golfer or banker?
