Where do you play!?!?!?! Show us your course!

47 posts in this topic

I just wanted to take a moment and see if everyone can go to the courses tab and create their home course and maybe a few that you have played? I think this is an awesome tool for the golfers who are looking to vacation in different areas and are looking for a place to play. Write a quick review and maybe upload some photos. In only takes a few minutes, and who is actually working this week anyways! I have created a few in my signature if you want something to look at for reference.

Here is the How-To

In Massachusetts I play Cranberry Valley on Cape Cod. A nice town owned public course. Superbly maintained. The customer service can be a little stuffy at times. The restaurant folks are very nice though.

When in Florida I play at Sandridge golf course in Indian River County. A county owned course beautifully maintained and the staff provide that southern hospitality that you here about and the cranky New England Yankees need to take lessons from. Also play Fairwinds golf course in Ft Pierce Fl. Very nice some times the greens have problems sometimes there fine. Again very nice personnel very friendly.

Here are my favorite public tracks in Cincinnati/Northern KY area...

1. Stonelick Hills ...by far the best course in the entire tristate area. http://www.stonelickhills.com/

2. Lassing Pointe ...the website doesn't do  the course justice. #18 has a 101 yard green...completely different hole one day to the next. Awesome place to play. http://www.boonecountygolf.com/

3. Legnedary Run ...designed from classic holes around the world. Had some green issues last year, as did many courses in the area. http://www.legendaryrungolf.com/

4. Shaker Run ...absolutely great course (27 holes), however, the greens were in horrible shape in early April. They are under new management so hopefully things will turn around. If it does I put this course right behind Stonelick Hills. http://www.cincigolf.com/shakerrungolfcourse.htm

I have three to offer the forum.

1. Locally it's Amana Colonies Golf Course in Amana, Iowa. http://www.amanagolfcourse.com/

2. In Texas where I live part of the year it's Timber Creek G.C. http://www.timbercreekgolfclub.com/golf/proto/timbercreekgc/

3. My 'permanent' home course is in Virginia and is Quantico MCB Medal of Honor Golf Course , http://www.quantico.usmc-mccs.org/Golf/index.cfm

which I've played off and on since 1970. I know that course well enough to describe nearly every tree, stream, and bush that I had to encounter from playing it so often over the years. My only hole in one was made there in 1972 on its #4 hole, which I proudly depict in my avatar.

Gives me a not-inconsiderable amount of pleasure to note that my home course was just voted the best golf resort in the world outside of the United States. The golf ops staff here are awesome and work their asses off and they're all going to get a big, fat bonus -- following which we're all going to have a big, fat party.

Categories are: Course Design & Access, Golf Staff & Services, Rooms, Service, Food/Dining, Location, Overall Design, and Activities/Facilities.

This is my course:

http://skyline-cc.com/

I play at Skyline Country Club in Lanesboro, Ma (where I live...western Massachusetts) and it is a very nice course. It is very woodsy especially the back 9 and isn't a slicers course because there are a lot of narrow fairways. I added this course to the courses about a week or so ago.

Just noticed you posted some Mass courses.  I just came across a site with some decent golf reviews in Mass and RI.  Seems like a new blog/site but has potential. www.snaphookgolf.net Check it out.

My course is the beautiful Temecula Creek Inn in Temecula, CA. 27 holes, some very challenging.  I take a weekly lesson at Redhawk, which is also in Temecula.

I wish I had a home course, but I don't.

There are a few courses within a 5 mile radius, but I don't like going to the same course over and over again. It feels like I'm cheating when I know how to play each hole and every break on every green.

Unless I was shooting under par, I would definitely not feel as if I were cheating lol.

    • The BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.
      I'm enjoying this, but it could really do with a bit more pulling power. Just a shame not to see a few of the top European Tour players like Sergio or Rory not play it.
    • My Swing (b101)
      It's just feeling a little bit more natural than it used to and I'm not stepping on the course with 5 or more swing thoughts, which is nice! I don't think it'll take much work getting back to making progress and I'm definitely seeing that some of the changes I've made have stuck - ball flight is really high compared to what I'm used to and the ball turns right to left about 50% of the time and stays straight for 30%. It's the 20% of rubbish, either duck hooks or generally wayward tee shots that I want to clear up, which is going to be this morning's target on the range. I didn't end up hitting the range yesterday - a mate texted to ask to play a round, so I went for that. What was obvious is that the little 9 hole course, where I don't need anything above a 4 iron, has been great for my iron play, but that the 3 wood, driver and course management need a bit of a refresher course. Shot an 86 with a ridiculous 7 penalty strokes (4 on one tough par 3), which says it all really as I don't normally take any! It is a tight track though and there is OB all over the place, but no excuse for the few 'head off' moments which prevented me scoring well. It was match play as well so I guess that's part of it... In short summary: Driving/3 wood - pretty poor and I'm just not comfortable over the ball with those clubs. On a longer course, I'd have struggled. Long irons - good, bar that atrocity of a par 3, where I think I'll just aim way left next time and take the safe miss. Both of those were actually really nice strikes, but went dead straight rather than drawing like I had expected. Still, my fault entirely for aiming towards the trouble  Mid-short irons - mostly pretty good actually. Put 6/14 approaches from outside 100 yards to (3/4 from within 100) inside 15 yards and bar two long bunker shots, the rest were manageable. Putting - really pleased again; I probably only made one that I wouldn't have expected (birdie on 13), but there's a lot of break on the greens and I thought it was pretty decent for a first time out in a while. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/benpage101/round/930037 Overall, pretty close to where I'd want it to be, but a better decision on 6, some better drives and a bit more luck on odd holes (like 16) and it'd have been a great round. I'd take that for the first time in ages. Should be able to post some video this afternoon.
    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      And also, "speculation" is what the thread is all about! Sure, I'm placing the Tour guys on a pedestal but they DESERVE it. Yes "Golf is Hard", but those guys are GOOD. Low 60s are very much a possibility in any tournament they tee it up in, let alone on a public course that was designed with the average golfer in mind. Let's give credit where credit is due! If all the players from 75-125 on the money list decided to go out and play a new course (of "moderate difficulty" for amateurs) every week for the next 2 months, course records would be getting smashed all over the place. They might shoot the odd 70 or 72, but you darn well bet there would be a lot of 63's and 64's in there too. Regardless of poor course conditions, lack of course knowledge or anything like that, they are gonna make birdies in droves and they are going to go low!
    • The this math does not compute thread
      I was at a garage sale with my son who was like 10 years old at the time. The seller had a box full of cheap toys with a handwritten sign on the box that read "$1 each, or 2 for $3".  I nudged my son and pointed to the sign with my eyes (because the seller was standing right there). He glanced down at the sign and immediately grinned and shook his head in disbelief. And don't get me going on auctions. People will pay more for used crap than they know they would if purchased brand new, simply because they get caught up in a bidding war. The best part is listening to them try and justify it afterwards.
