You haven't played a round or two at the local 9 hole cow pasture or goat farm? I know I have.
I got in a twilight 9 yesterday evening and shot a 42 (par 35) with a triple bogey 7 on a very short par 4.The putter really let me down today. I had 3 putts at birdie that were under 10 feet and only hit the edge on one of them I even 3-putted for bogey once.   Stats......5 of 7 FW and 4 GIR,  4 pars, 4 bogies, and the disastrous triple, 17 putts
187 yard uphill shot onto the green with my new (to me) Hogan Speed slot laminated 5 wood with an old balata ball.
Not exactly from a golf store, but from a local goodwill. Hogan PC 2-SW (the sw is a Hogan Radial) with 1, 3 & 5 speed slot laminated woods with matching numbers. All are sporting newer grips, and regular flex apex 3 shafts. The best find was an older TP Mills 12 putter. It's hard to believe that these clubs are nearly 30 years old! Grand total for the purchase was $30 after I rounded up for the veterans. The shafts have some duct tape residue that should...
I went retro today. Played a balata ball and laminated Ben Hogan woods and old Hogan PC irons and an old TP Mills 12 putter. I bought all this equipment last weekend at a local goodwill for $30   People were giving me some weird looks on the tee when I pulled out that wooden driver . LOL   5737 yards par 71      67.9/113          Score 86......41/45......6/15 FW and 4 GIR. 32 putts including two 3 jacks. 1 triple bogey, 2 double bogeys, 9 bogeys, 5 pars and 1...
To quote myself in this thread from 2010     and still no glove here. To say you can't get a proper grip without a glove in hot humid weather is ludicrous. We have some pretty hot and humid summers here in the mid-west and have never had a problem with gripping a club.
I played my first year with my longest club being a 3 hybrid.
My old home course has 3 sets of men's tees at 6196, 6839, and 7621 yards. I never played from the tips, but scored just about the same from the two sets of forward tees. My only rule is that anything over 7000 is just to long for me.
I use a 1958 silver quarter. I got it in some change I received in a purchase I made. When I put it in my pocket it made a different sound than any quarter I've ever heard. I thought it was counterfeit until I did some research.
#1 is a 520 yard par 4. Granted it is downhill, but damn man what a brutal way to start a round. If you miss the fairway then you are just laying up and trying to get up and down for par.   Here's a hole by hole preview.   http://www.olyclub.com/Default.aspx?p=DynamicModule&pageid=342338&ssid=243551&vnf=1
