Oh how I am thankful for this decision yesterday. Landed my tee shot into a fire ant nest and no way I was hitting it outta that. One fire ant "dance" is enough for me in this lifetime.
That's why I have a hard time buying into the it takes to long. People complain about a 4-5 maybe six hour day outside yet will spend 7 hrs Saturday and another 7 Sunday watching football on tv. Or any sporting event for that matter.The more I read it's the it's to hard excuse that I'm thinking is the major obstacle.

Memberships are they way to go if you don't mind playing the same course more times than not. Cost is something you can control as is the time in most cases. In my opinion people who like golf will stick around no matter what. They will find a way to play once or twice a month, even if it's just a charity scramble tournaments.
