I've had 2 private club memberships over the years, but I returned to the public course scene.   I'd rather have an annual membership at an upscale public course.    I get waaaay more golf course for the money....IMO   Facilities, pools, tennis courts..etc, etc.. don't matter to me...it's all about the golf.  Where I play now is much more course...
I had today/Friday off and it was a beautiful sunny/70degree day with light winds.   Stone Canyon: 73.2CR 141slope.... 38-45=83...OUCH 4/13fairways...ouch 9 greens..........hitting 9 greens and scoring +11 is terrible 29 putts...not bad 2 penalties 0/1 SS 1 birdie   I made 5 doubles today...1 on the front but salvaged a 2 over par score, and then 4 doubles on the inward nine which led to a smoooooth 45...yuck
My idea of the perfect weekday evening of golf is to pair up with a single or twosome at 5pm........play 9 holes in less than 2hrs with them...........I shake their hands and thank them for the good company as they depart to hole 10 as they wishfully hope to finish 18 before dark behind the masses that always bunch up on the back before dark.   I loop back to play the front again as it is now nearly empty this late in the evening.  As a single...I cruise through my...
I love all the "I usually" and "Probably" responses with regard to average GIR..........     Unless stats are kept, a golfer has no idea what percentage are hit on average.  The number is probably MUCH lower than you think....... I know from experience.   When I started keeping accurate hole-by-hole stats, I was shocked by how bad my stats really were!  
 I recently paid $90 for replacement polarized lenses for my Oakley's.  I wear them most of the time, but I think I prefer my non-polarized Under Armour shades for golf.  I love polarized lenses for normal use, but I am not convinced they are best for golf. I may need to see glare from the ball in the air to follow it best...HEH   If eyewear is used, it should be quality made...IMO   No cheap dime store crap for me.......that's for kids.
yes....he would be able to score in the '70s on his best days, but his average score will be comfortably in the 80s.   A scratch golfer playing a course with similar ratings will average around 82-83........ I believe the 78CR........but doubt the 137slope is accurate.   it must be higher.  Slope and CR tells the story of length and difficulty/hazards, but course setup for a major championship is an entirely different beast.  Several of the worlds best players fail to...
There is no right or wrong time......     I bought a tee-ball set for my sons 5th birthday and he seemed to prefer hitting the ball off the ground pretending to play golf.  I went and immediately bought a set of golf clubs and he was in heaven.  He hit whiffle balls in the back yard until his hands bled...I'd tape his bleeding fingers up and he'd hit some more balls.   I started taking him to the "Big" course with me weekday evenings at age 5.  I'd let him bring a...
       I can comment from the perspective of a lower HC golfer pairing up with higher HC golfers.  Just have fun and play the tees that make you feel comfortable.   I don't expect or want you to play from the same tees if it's out of your comfort zone.  I want you to feel comfortable and to enjoy my company.  I try to make my playing partners feel at ease and any uneasiness is usually gone after the first hole or two.  One cardinal pace of play rule:   So long as our group...
I am totally slacking on my golf game this year and playing much less.   I only played 9 tonight once again....   Stone Canyon Black Tees Front9 : 72.4CR 145slope............score: 39 Fairways: 4/7 Greens: 2/9.......... I holed a putt for birdie on one, and 3-putted the other...LOL 15 Putts 1/1 SS   In spite of hitting only 4 fairways and 2 greens, I hit the ball solid and kept the ball in play.   I used the same ball all 9 holes, and that's saying something around...
I believe the problem is that carts are too slow........   Why not build the standard golf cart so it can reach speeds of at least 30-40mph?
