There's one the next exit up the toll road from my house. It's real cool for team outings, birthdays, or just to get out with a group of friends. It doesn't replace the feel of a real golf course though and at $40/hour, I probably wouldn't recommend it for solo practice.
I'm still an advocate for bringing a US Open or PGA to the Southwest. Our part of the country has fine courses and is an afterthought when it comes to these events. If it's too hot, toss us a bone, like a Ryder or Presidents Cup.
I've never been on a buddies trip but I'm doing one in October. Wondering if anyone on here has shipped clubs to the location instead of paying for baggage fees. Also trying to get reviews of services that ship clubs. Any help would be appreciated.
What's the best public course to play in the Cape Cod area? I'll be there on vacay next week and will need to scratch my itch. I'll be able to move around, but don't want to get lost just to play golf? Any advice will be put to good use.
A lot of times, an open qualifier is an opportunity to play a premium course that you otherwise would not have the chance to play. Me personally, the risk of embarrassing myself outweighs my desire to play somewhere like Old American (where the local qualifier was around here) or a TPC type course.
