golfaddiction,   I've used it once, but I brought my own clubs.  So I can't speak to the quality of what they rent, but if it's like the stuff in the rental bin at the range, the clubs are pretty beat up.    Personally, I didn't think the overall experience was that great.  It was a nice way to spend an hour or two in the winter when I couldn't play, but I think I would have rather spend the same time on the range with the appropriate warm clothes.    The...
I know, I know, but I literally got off the plane, picked up my rental car and went to the course.  No time to acclimate to the new climate.    And Florida in August, no thank you. 
Crandon was a tough course, especially because I was having a lot of trouble off the tee.  Also, I wasn't quite ready for the insane humidity and heat, coming from the Northeast.     I ended up also playing at the Miami Beach Golf Club.  Decent course, but a little overpriced IMHO.     I also forget that with a lot of Florida golf, there aren't a lof of elevation changes, so there's a lot of water used to create difficulty which I'm not exactly crazy about.  
@Nole77,   I'm not exactly sure about my final cost, because I have a UPS account and don't get my bill until a month later.     I would guess something in the $50 range.     If you do not have a travel cover, I highly recommend the Club Glove burst proof with wheels.     It's a good padded cover, just add a broomstick that is as long as your driver or longest club, in case the bag gets dropped on its head.     The wheels make getting around the...
I'm headed to Miami this week and play a couple of rounds.     I'm trying to decide between playing at Crandon Park or at the Biltmore.     Any advice is greatly appreciated.   
As a follow-up,   I shipped my clubs via UPS, and although I was told I did not need a box and would have to pay a small upcharge for an odd shaped package (my travel cover), after insuring my clubs at their replacement value, I was told that I would have to use a box.     I flew to Chicago to play a few rounds, then went on a long one-way road trip with family (no golf on the road trip), so I needed to get my clubs back to NYC where I live.  I flew back from...
I'm going to ship my clubs for the first time so I won't have to lug them around after the golf portion of my vacation.     Am I okay just shipping them, probably via UPS ground, in a Club Glove Burst Proof bag?  Or should I box everything, including the Club Glove outer bag?    
I'm planning on a trip to Bandon this June, but I'm not sure if it's worth the extra money to stay at the resort.     It looks like most of the off-site locations are pretty spartan, motel 6-like places but they are a lot cheaper, something like $130 vs. $390.  A Bandon Inn is very close in price to staying at the resort, but I have not found much else beyond the cheapie motels.     We are planning on playing two rounds each day, and maybe even more if we aren't...
So I'm very close to pulling the trigger on a new driver, and was wondering if there are ideal launch monitor conditions for a fairway metal?     My current setup has been a 10.5 degree driver and a 15 degree fairway metal, same manufacturer and relatively similar vintage to each other.  I was fitted for the driver and bought the fairway metal based on the driver.     Now that I'm shopping for the new driver, I'm wondering if there's a smarter way to pick out a...
Ball forward- even with the inside of my left shoe/foot. Left foot turned normal (slightly open) and right foot turned out to 45 degrees. I've discovered that at that stance width, my hips are closed (point towards my left side) unless I turn out my right foot. I hit my driver consistently well. Better than any of my other long clubs until my 5-iron. It is my putting that is my achilles heel.
