Assume this is in eurpoe ... honestly, this type of thing is why I have little interest in playing euro style links golf - the steep faced revetted bunkers are so different from what we have in the US.   I'd be more worried about that little deep pot bunker in front of the big one ...

This is all the bunker I need.  7th hole at Fossil Trace.  Last time I was in it, I took 3 shots to get out, and I'm usually a pretty good bunker player.  Maybe not as much actual sand area as the bunker above, but the funnel effect makes it effectively larger.  It snakes up a hill from the end of the fairway for almost 60 yards to the edge of the green, and if you measure to the center of the dogleg in it, it's 80 yards long.  Filled with deep fluffy sand, unless you are on the end close to the green, extraction is difficult at best.

That's not a bunker, it's a burn with sand!

Sand Hill Golf Club: This doesn't look too bad ... Unless you are in it.

Once heard Sand Hills looks more like the terrain found on the surface of the moon than on a golf course, but I can't find that reference now.

Good Lord!!!  That's not just penal, it's punitive. :surrender:

The course designer must have just had a colonoscopy when he planned that hole… he left out an image of the doctor's gloved hand...

Let me guess, that tiny spec with the blue dot-like shirt needs to hit a ball the size of a grain of sand over that mountain??? :scared:

HA!!! Made me look up penal and punitive with that one, turns out I'm not keen on being penalized but I'm really into punishment :-P

Lol yes I will bop on over there as soon as I get back from Augusta National :-P I remember reading it's pretty tough to run in to a SHGC member. Not the type you'll encounter at the Applebees bar after an afternoon at the local muni.

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?

      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

      thanks. I'm doing that so I might do some horse trading.
    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
