Old thread, but what the heck... I use the floater golf balls ( can't tell the difference between hitting them and a regular ball) and a couple of different sized hula hoops if anybody knows what those are!
14 different courses out of last 20
I was able to play more golf in 2013 than ever before thanks to meeting some fellow golfers who didn't mind playing with a 35 index golfer. It was a good year for me, I got to play The Jack Nicklaus Tournament and PGA WEST Stadium courses out by Palm Springs and will be playing Morongo's Tukwet Cyns 2 courses this month if the weather holds up. Prior to June of this year I had only been under 100 two  times. I wound up with 12 rounds under a 100 since then, and my index...
I like yellow for visibility, but they are not recommended when there are fall weather leaves on the course. Same thing probably goes for orange balls. For fall time, I think white would be the easiest to find in the fairways...and of course, nobody I know hits the balls into the rough!!
Thread title is "What's a good handicap" Probably a broken leg............Sorry just couldn't resist !!   A good handicap is probably one that the golfer can get pretty close too most time they play. We all have different abilities.
A lot of courses in So. Cal have dwellings way to close to the fairways. Have hit many a rooftop over the last two years, but luckily have not hit any windows. Last time I played a course with houses, I hit one onto a roof, then noticed the homeowner was standing in his back yard watching. Apparently someone else before our group had also just hit his house and he was checking for damage. As I sheepishly came up to him to apologize, he said something to the effect of...
I see your point about making a determination, but on the same hand I don't see a minute movement as grounds for penalty....I know, i know, what is the standard definition of a minute measurement? I guess my subjective reasoning has no place on the course, and as was said, would bring more questions and argument into play.
A question to (hopefully) promote some  nice dialog about a topic (ball movement) that comes up quite often.   Think of all the times a ball is dropped or  re-dropped;... it could be 2 club lengths away from a point of reference. (Yes, I'm calling this a ball movement as the ball is not where it was before)   Or how about when the ball has to be re-placed back to where you think it originally was? Another example could be when you are on the green and your placed...
Played there Saturday.. I don't have the length needed to go for the green off the tee. It's layup all the way! You can't tell from the pictures, but there is sort of a collection area between the rock in the fairway and the bunkers. From that area you get a pretty good look at the green if the pin is towards the right side of the green. Last two times I've made par from there (which is better than my skill level) Off topic...how did those of you who played Sunday find...
^^^^^^^ This works real well for what it is intended for. Used a gap wedge for 40-50, a nine for the next ten yards and so on up to a 7i for the bump and run. Actually got quite a few 1 putts out of this methodStill working on the higher shots from this distance, and it is coming along nicely at times
