I went today.  It was 38 degrees with a 15-20mph northerly wind.  Had the course all to myself.  Now if it wasn't for the damn leaves...
Please note, the sarcasm was only intended as hyperbole. 
 I'd tell her that golf is a serious business and if she's not going to dedicate herself fully to being the best golfer she can possibly be, then she needs to hang it up and take up knitting.  I would also tell her to stop horsing around with her friends on the course and spend some time alone out there so she can focus on what she's doing wrong and not be distracted by idle chatter.  I would sit down with her and schedule a regimen to develop her skills.  She needs to...
Jeez... what the hell did I start with this thread..lol
What line is that?  Because the bottom line is whether the course is fun to play or not.  It's not as if the PGA will be holding an event there.
Yes, it is.  The aerial photo doesn't tell the tale.  The distance to the green may only be 171, but it's elevated roughly 20' higher than the tee box, increasing it's effective distance.  When you add the trees that block the approach from the tee (one of which is a 60' walnut tree) and the fact that the green is sloping away from the tee box, funneling toward the bunker, it becomes a "reachable" par 4.  To land the ball on the green, you would have to hit an insanely...
Thanks guys.  Looks like I'm going to be aiming left with my 6 iron from now on...
I'm hoping someone can settle a disagreement between me and my brother.  The question is whether or not it is legal to shoot straight for the green on the hole shown below.  It's a tee shot over water to a small fairway and then a sharp dogleg left to the green.  There is a  white boundary marker just to the left of the fairway at the water's edge.  Does that mean the tee shot cannot go to the outside of that marker?  Pardon my ignorance on this.  
My brother-in-law is legally blind.  But he is a 17 handicap.  Why?  Because the most important thing is developing consistency in your swing.  Kind of like shooting free throws.  Do it the same way every time.  All he has to do is make sure the ball is in front of his club at address and he's good to go.  You don't really make solid contact by seeing the impact anyway.  Impact happens in a few thousandths of a second and then the ball is gone.
For me, I like to go to the course about an hour before dark.  The manager doesn't care if you go out and hit around for free at that point if he knows you.  So I'll go out and practice various things for an hour or so 2 or 3 times a week.  Here is how my practice tends to break down over the course of say... a month (estimated, of course):   Driving - 5% Long irons/hybrids - 10% Mid irons - 20% Short irons/wedges (full swing, pitches, chips) - 40% Putting -...
