I would say Jupiter Hills Club in Jupiter FL was the best for me. I played a practice round a week before the Florida State Am last summer after they had just re-opened from 4 months of maintenance on the village course, and there was nary a blade of grass out of place and not a single divot on the entire course. The Hills course is a work of art and the most challenging test I have ever endured. From the tournament only black tees it measures 7344 yards and plays to a par...
My list, in terms of the quality of the golf courses: (not in any particular order) Las Vegas, NV San Francisco, CA Orlando, FL Bend, OR Dallas, TX
Yeah, it was hard to pick venues, let alone specific courses, so I just listed the resort regardless if it had multiple courses. I love the new course at Grand Cypress. It's a great departure from standard Florida golf. I agree with you about Victoria Hills, especially since they switched the nines now to the original layout as Ron Garl intended. (They've played the original back nine as the front for years since they opened) I didn't include it since it's not in the...
Black Bear in Eustis is about as wide open as they get. If you are in the resort area near disney, The Grand Cypress new course has several fairways in excess of 100 yards wide. LPGA Champions course in Daytona is pretty forgiving also.
I'll put my greeskeeper hat on for this one: I think you only have to deal with grain in the south on the bermuda grass. Aerating is done to allow water, oxygen, fertilizers, and other nutrients to penetrate the soil and better reach the roots of the grass. In is normally done once in the spring and again in the fall. It doesn't have much effect on controlling grain. Verticutting, has an effect of reducing grain, but is done primarilty to encourage more growth and...
The only issue I have with an aid like this is that the putting stroke isn't a straight path, but rather an arch. I've tried several path trainers and find them all the be ineffective for me. That doesn't mean it wont work for you though. I prefer something that gives me more feedback. I like my trusty old Carbite Golf Putter ball. It's basically a metal ball on the end of a shaft. If you don't hit it absolutely dead square, the ball goes careening way off to one side...
The best deal on beginner set for ladies are either Nancy Lopez Golf or Square Two Golf. They both make woman friendly and affordable sets.http://www.nancylopezgolf.com/en/Home.aspxhttp://www.squaretwo.com/
I have a staff bag and a nice little carry bag. In Florida we almost always ride in carts, so the staff bag affords me more storage space for everything I need like sunscreen, bug spray, rain gear, drink mix, etc. The carry bag works great when I do walk or someone caddies for me. They both have their purpose. A staff bag can be pretentious if you are one of those guys that puts their name on the bag just to get attention. You know the guys - They stand up on the range...
Some irons hit it higher than others, especially depending on the shaft, but it is still possible to hit the ball very high even if you have the stiffest, heaviest, highest kickpoint shafts and blades with high center of gravity. Most better players deloft the club because the hands lead at impact, producing the descending blow you want with an iron. Have a pro check out his swing. My guess is he's probably sweeping it, which can work well for woods and long irons, but...
Testing is the best way to determine that. The loft is relative and I don't think you can go by the set of irons and match lofts with hybrids. I personally hit a hybrid much further than an iron of the same loft. I have the Adams Idea Pro hybrids in 20 and 24 degrees. They say the 20 degree is a 3 iron, but I'll never hit a 3 iron as high and far as I hit that club. The same for the 4 hybrid. For me the 24 degree hybrid goes about 225 making it more like a 3 iron, and the...
