I guess I need to take a spelling class or at least use the spell check. I'm going to partake in golf...not gold. If I do partake in gold, I'll buy everyone a beer.
I'm heading out to Arizona for 10 days to visit my daughter. I'm taking my clubs and will be partaking of many holes of gold during my stay. My first stop will be Arizona National. From there I'll be staying on the Blythe, Cal. golf course where my daughter lives. I can walk out the door and start playing, literally. Can't wait for some warm weather...85 - 90 degrees. As I haven't played since Oct. 2012, you may hear some swearing, (refer to the cussing thread)
I guess I owe this forum an apology. It wasn't my intention to come across as elitist or arrogant. I'm 61 years old and have raised 4 children. I've played competitive golf on the state level and designed, constructed and operated my own course. My purpose for sharing my feelings as I did is this. I feel there is a huge disconnect in the way people are behaving in public situations these days. There seems to be no respect for the people around you. I don't object to...
Your handicap is not a simple plus or minus to par. You have to take into account the slope and rating of the courses you play. If you play a course with a high degree of difficulty the slope and rating will lower you handicap even with scores that exceed what you normally shoot. example...I play on a course with a slope and rating of 145 and 74.3. I have a course handicap of 6.3 and shoot in the high 70's most of the time. I play in an 18 hole league with a slope and...
Interesting...almost all of the statements made about swearing on the golf course being normal if not expected, comes from high handicaps. Maybe if you spent more time concentrating on your game you would play better and not have so many reasons to let go. Keeping your emotions in check is a huge dimension of the game. I get pissed when I tank a shot but I don't think every one else on the golf course needs to hear about it. I also don't whoop it up when I drain a long...
There are many excellent players who aspire to be a pro. There is a huge difference in the way a PGA player hits the ball. If you want to see and hear the difference, simply go to a PGA tournament and get on the caddy wall and loop for some corp. guy and watch the pro play. I had the privilege of looping for Justin Leonard at a Tues. pro am years ago at the B.C. Open. He was a 1st year pro and needed to earn 30k to keep his card. The following year he had a fist full of...

There is no better deal than to join a golf course you like and wear the grass out. Seriously, if you have a course you like playing and it's a challenge...preferably more difficult than you're used to, you'll be shocked as to how your game will improve. As your game improves, you enjoy it more.
Parker...are you a NY'er. If so, what part?  
I like courses that make you think on every shot. Good conditions are also a given. You play better on better courses. My home course is Colgate University Seven Oaks. This is a RTJ layout. Long, huge greens and heavy rough. If you play easy courses, you might as well go to the driving range and pound balls without thought. You'll improve your game as much by playing challenging courses as much as you will by playing with better golfers. Eight years ago I designed and...
