When you were fitted for the clubs that were too long, did they have you swinging clubs or just base it on your height? If I remember correctly, a static fitting and dynamic fitting gave completely different results.
I kind of agree with this. It was a stretch to pay $200 for the class in the first place, even though the information is great. I'm reluctant to pay that again just to learn what seems like a new wrinkle. Maybe its more new information than I know, but paying another $200, or even $150 for a 2nd green reading clinic isn't very attractive to me. Did you find that there was a lot of new information in the midpoint class? Through people asking questions about the midpoint...
Some courses around here do that during the winter. I dont know if its due to staff reductions during the winter or because its harder cut the holes when the ground is frozen. But they cut two holes in the green and you play to the one with the flag. After holing out, you put the flag in the other hole. I think its supposed to keep the holes a bit fresher. Some guy flew up to my group once furious and cursing at us because he thought we were moving the flags to...
Alright well it looks like we've got a date--Sunday April 6.
We probably want a final count by March 16 so we have time to make the group reservation before the typical 2-week advance opens to the general public. So far the voting is as follows:
Bulle Rock - 1 vote.
So come one @davechen , @Derrick James , @jsgolfer , @RandallT , @kregan give us your votes!
I didn't realize there were different classes. Looking again at the email, they're charging $200 for the Express class. I did find that John Graham is doing something more similar to what you mentioned at a nearby course: http://www.bluemash.com/aimpoint-putting-clinic/ Oh, thanks! I guess I'll have to put my misgivings about facebook aside and join this group. Watching 60 minutes last night made me want to retreat from the internet and smartphones altogether, but...
Are you able to elaborate without giving away too much? I understand if you can't. There's just about no information about this online and the aimpoint forum has been down for quite some time now. The only thing I have been able to find are these videos of guys using their fingers to get the read: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKqxC6CSBgs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvyovgBb53k I sent an email to my instructor asking about this and he told me to call him, but...
I played 18 in about 2.5 hours late yesterday afternoon. It was in the mid 40s but reached 60 the day before, which melted almost all the snow. Lumpiest greens I've ever seen, but it was good to get out there.
This is what I am thinking. I spend more time at the driving range, but they're a dime a dozen. I'm also not sure what sets a "good" range apart from an "average" range. A cage, as OP suggested sounds terrible, but I'd take an unkept field with yardage markers anda nice short game facility over a nice driving range and only one putting green. But I do think the driving range is more likely to make money.
I just got an email about an upcoming beginner level aimpoint class. It has a bullet point list describing the class and at the end says "NO MORE CHARTS NECESSARY!"
Has aimpoint gotten rid of the charts?
If I owned the facility, I'd probably favor the driving range. Fits more people and it's likely less expensive. As a consumer, I'd probably favor the short game area. If for no other reason than that they are harder to find.
I wish it was easier to find a range with a track man for public use.
