I played 36 holes yesterday

11 posts in this topic

It was a great experience. I went out to my home course (I'm a member) with one of my friends (non member) and we tee'd off about 45 minutes before the league, but apparently the league only goes off the front, so we got out 18 in, and then went back to the front. We caught the league by the 7th hole, so we played 7 and 8, and at the advice of a league member skipped nine all together. We then went to 10 and played the back nine again, so I guess really we played 35 holes. It was a lot of golf, and although I didn't play my best it was a lot of fun. I played consistently average, and my friend, a new golfer, played his best golf to date. I love this game.

Some friends of mine and I have managed to get 47 holes in on a few occasions (I guess we never realized that starting a little bit earlier would allow us 56 holes). Talk about a lot of fun! Was very tiring at the same time.....I was only able to get either 9 or 18 in on the following days.

I kind of had to chuckle at the title of this thread a little. Last week/weekend was my guys annual golf trip. We played 36 holes Thursday, Friday and Saturday, plus 18 on Sunday coming back. All in +90 degree heat and high humidity. Talk about being worn the heck out....I honestly had zero desire to play on Sunday but did anyway. We do this every year and well...I'm getting too old for this crap!

Needless to say, not real excited to pick up my clubs for the next couple of days. I haven't even mustered up the energy to clean them from the trip. Not very often I can say I'm sick of golf...LOL.

its always a fun time! I try to get out for 36 as often as I can

I try to tee off around 6:30AM then I'll leave and have a sandwhich at the 99 and then go back and play another 18

tiring, but I'm only 23 and can easily walk 36 in a day

I don't know how you guys can play more than 18 holes in one day. I'm arm weary by the 15th. I must be getting old lol. That or the 110degree heat makes it hard.

I've only reached 27. Very pricey when you don't have a membership

This reminds me of a video I saw when Erick Lindgren bet that he could play 72 holes in one day, carrying his bag.

That is unreal. I couldn't imagine playing 72, halfway through round 2 I'd barely be able to swing the club.

Played 36 holes at my club yesterday (two courses), carrying my own bag in a very hot African autumn sun. I havent played 36 in years. It was just tragic on the second round, shooting 10 over handicap and shuffling my feet like a real lifeweary old man. But the company was good and the courses beautiful.

    • New GolfNow layout is Awful
      Interestingly, I received this in an email from GolfNow yesterday.... You spoke and we're listening. That's why we're already hard at work fine-tuning the new GolfNow.com based on your feedback. Keep an eye out for enhancements on the way! I wouldn't be surprised if they weren't well aware of forum threads like this one too.
    • New GolfNow layout is Awful
      Every customer is different, some know exactly what they want and expect you to execute their vision.  Others want more consultation and input from the designers as to what others are doing or what trends are on the rise.  Another factor is maintenance, how much time is required to keep the site updated, can the business maintain the site on their own or must that be outsourced, etc. There are numerous reasons why a business would redesign their site, such as; The business has undergone some fundamental changes that they want reflected in a new website The cost of maintaining the current site is too high The provider of their data has changed the feeds or discontinued certain elements of the data. Users have complained about how the site works The site is outdated or dependent on outdated technology or servers. They want a site that is "responsive" meaning the same site works on desktop, tablet and smart phones. I've never done work for a business that said they want to make their site worse, less user friendly, less functional or more frustrating for their customers to use.  My guess is that given the popularity of sites like GolfNow, that some standards were created for how the data would be distributed and updated to the GolfNow like websites from the different courses to make it easier for them all to get the data (the same thing happened to the airline industry).  The change to the backend likely warranted the changing of the front end as well. In some cases compromises must be made.  I've redesigned sites that were written in HTML, PHP and jQuery which are not easy for end users to maintain and update themselves.  The client wanted a responsive site that they could maintain easily on their own.  I suggested we develop the new site using Joomla, Drupel or WordPress as those platforms provided them with everything they requested.  They ultimately ended up with a WordPress site that was responsive and very functional but because of the platform certain nuances of the old site were lost. Users initially complained but we worked out some issues and over time they appreciated the more frequent updates and ability to easily view the site on their iPads and cell phones.  Website redesign like life is full of compromises.
    • Shorts On the PGA Tour (Updated 2013, 2016)
      I don't think the PGA Tour's stance on this has only to do with "tradition." Ultimately the PGA Tour is a member-run organization. If they strongly wished for shorts, they'd vote to allow it. That they've not done so speaks volumes, IMO.
    • Donald Trump for president?
      I heard something on the radio along the lines of New Hampshire having "super delegates" that will vote for Clinton regardless of yesterday's vote.  As far as Trump goes, my bottom line  is that he simply is not electable. Moderates, women and minorities aren't going to vote for that guy.    
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Just to clarify, I consider myself a committed Trump supporter, I like him. I am not a conservative in the traditional sense. Like anyone, I don't agree with every position that my candidate stands for, I do, however, agree on his main points re: immigration.
