Rain Rain Go Away

22 posts in this topic

This is crazy, here in Cincinnati its has stormed 5-6 days in a row, and won't stop until Friday.  The Ohio River is flooded and worst of all my courses have all been closed since Friday.  I'm so bored I'm going crazy.  Is there anyone else experiencing this much rain this year.

I'm from the Youngstown area and they said on the news that we have had rain 20 out of 25 days this month. The only places we can play around here are places with really good drainage or walking only in soaking wet roughs and fairways.

We are getting a bunch of rain here in Michigan, but most of it has dissipated over Lake Michigan so we just get little storm clouds here and there. It has rained a bunch though and it has been nothing but cart path only so far this season.

2-5 inches of rain is being forecast this week in southern Michigan. I played Saturday, and 2 of the 3 nine hole courses were underwater. This weather sucks!

We have some rain here in Calgary this week I think. Better than snow ( which has finally all but gone )...playing 9 holes tonight, chance of thunderstorms though.

Can't even use my Ci9s ( they're in Golf Town getting re gripped ( which is taking a week because they're so busy ) ), so I will be using some crappy old no name set I got for $80

I hope it isn't raining next weekend...I am going f*cking crazy waiting to play.

Played in the Rain on Saturday. We went to a Par3 course in Cape Cod, it wasnt pouring out but it was raining good and steady when we packing our bags up and just decided to "go for it".

We were the only ones on the course(obviously) and got in for 10$ the guy in the bar was just like go for it if you want! So we played 9 in the cold 45-50* windy rain for 2 hours. It was actually pretty fun completely different conditions, I swear you had to crank the ball on the greens to get it to roll 10ft. Just crazy. Got a nice sunny day yesterday and laid the whole set on the lawn to dry out it seems to be fine now. It was fun if your that desperate try and get in a round in the rain, just mentally commit to doing it and dont look back.


(But dress warm hah)

I'm from Youngstown too, went out to Knoll Run on Saturday. It was just a sloppy muddy waste of time. This rain is rediculous.

I live in the pacific northwest, and anytime except summer, we have no idea what sun is... It's all rain.  This year, though, has been a ton worse in terms of amounts of rain, a lot of mudslides around... thank you la nina!  The only good side to this is tons of powder to ski in the mountains!!

I'm here in the old queen city too.

It has been wet.  I actually played Sat before the rain at Blueash.  I'm pretty sure there open.

But yeah, its been wet to say the least.

I'm in Cleveland...

Here's the good news...in late July, when things in Ohio tend to get brown and burned out...this year, it shouldn't be as bad. Softer courses in the summer equal lower scores. Plus, lately, if you can brave the rain and wet, most courses are playing pretty easy because greens are soft and fairways/rough don't roll - you can fire at pins, and wayward tee shots get lassoed.

Just had flash flooding around my area. And the company my father works for owns that course, usually pretty dry they put a lot of money into the drainage there. I walked Candywood on Saturday and I thought it was decently dry as long as you stayed in the fairway.

Been raining a lot down hear in southern il too,  did get to play on mon and thurs last week but rained about every day since then.  Might not be clear until Thursday it looks like here, hope to get out again then and hope ground is a little less saturated by weekend.   Sucked having a long weekend because of holiday and not being able to play but that happens in April i guess.   It will dry up before summer and get those nice fast, rock hard fairways back.

I know!When I think of the dry courses around us it's usually Tanglewood, Knoll Run or Reserve Run but every is bad. I went to reserve run today and it was extremely soggy. Standing water everywhere.

I just got home from work, had to drive a block out of the way to get home, road was flooded.  Ive lived here in the same place for 11 years and this is the first time its rained this much.  Theres a ditch about 3 feet deep in my front yard and its overflowed, got about 6 inches of water in my yard.  Needless to say its pretty wet.

Greater Toronto Area: This, so far, has got to be the wettest and coolest Spring I have experienced. It seems that there is a threat of rain daily with cooler temps than normal. I have yet to get out and play golf this year, seen a golf course since I work at one which is open but the conditions are quite wet. Hopefully things will improve after this week which is forecasted to see heavy rain up to Friday.

I play at Blue Ash a lot, it's a pretty nice course. I was out of town last weekend, but I can only imagine how wet it was out there. It's been so frustrating trying to get out and golf lately.

    • What'd You Shoot Today?
      76 today 36 on the front 40 on the back I started off hitting the ball better than I ever had. I didn't miss a fairway until somewhere on the back 9 and the only thing that kept me from going low was not being able to convert on key birdie opportunities. Had a real good look at shooting under par but I let my swing get a little quick on the final holes as I played the closing three at +4. Despite a couple errant tee shots and a 4 -putt (yes, a 4-putt...), this was a pretty clean round for me. I feel good going into a 4 day break.  
    • The Tiger Woods/PED Thread
      Tiger never got "so big." Have you seen the dude in person? He was not an imposing figure. This is a myth. I get that he can look pretty stacked on TV, but he's not: his shirts were tight, and he was fit, but he wasn't "so big." Like most men, he filled out from the time he was 20 until he was 26, 27…
    • The Tiger Woods/PED Thread
      Wrong again! I loved Tiger when he was out there dominating the game. He was great for golf, bringing new fans and attention to the sport. I attended the WGC Bridgestone in Akron when Tiger was in his ascendancy. I tried to follow him, but it was impossible! He had to be dragging 10,000 people around the course! But I, like many others, began to wonder when Tiger got so big. Remember when he first came on tour? A skinny string bean with big, thick glasses. When he showed up at Stanford it was his teammate, Notah Begay, who tagged him with the nickname "Urkel"! Even though Woods and Begay became friends, I don't think Tiger liked "Urkel" very much. And it's been reported that Tiger didn't like the idea of golfers not being considered "real" athletes either. So, if Tiger was juicing he never got caught. Neither did Bonds, Sosa or McGwire. There is no proof, but suspicions remain. It's kind of sad to see Tiger in his current state, trying to claw his way back to the tour. No doubt he has enough money to last the rest of his and his kid's lives, but you don't get to where he was unless you are competitive. I think that might be what Tiger misses the most. I just remembered that he named his yacht "Privacy" because, at the time, that is what he craved. Well, he has plenty of it now. Wonder how that's sitting with him?

      The story about the infamous crime lord Whitey Bulger. It starred Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger. Benedict Cumberbatch played his brother, and US Senator Billy Bulger. This was an enthralling movie to watch. I give it a tap in Birdie. I give Johnny Depp an birdie performance. He was totally convincing playing Whitey Bulger.  Kung Fury
      This is a little gem I found when I was hanging out with my friends just skimming through Netflix. This is a movie that was crowd funded through kickstarter. It has that cheesy 80's action movie coupled with cheesy kung-fu movie feel to it. It just works brilliantly to give you an over the top 30 minutes of enjoyment. I give it an birdie for outstanding exaggerated fun and enjoyment.

      Watching Steph make clutch 3s from mid court routinely must be like watching Spieth putt those 15-20 footers knowly there always a chance goes in no matter how tough the green is
