Golf courses or Driving ranges In lexington, KY

9 posts in this topic

I am playing in a tournament In Lexington, KY the first week of april at the marriott griffin gate golf course. Which from what i have heard is really nice, But they do not have a range or practice area there. Was looking for a place to warm up hit some balls and putt some where close before my tee. I am not from the area i live about 1 1/2 north by cincinnati. Any suggestions? Thanks for the help.

Sorry, I can't help you with your question but I have a question of my own if you don't mind? Is this just a local tournament or is it some type of public event? I did a quick search and didn't find much about it so I'm just curious. The reason I ask is because I know they have a state-am qualifier there at the end of May that I may play in if I haven't qualified yet and would possibly be interested in attending this tournament as a warm-up to get familiar with the course. I live in the western part of the state, so I'm not real familiar with Lexington other than the college campus and downtown area.

I dont Mind at all. Its for the Golf weekly AM Tour. Its the opening event for us. I play on the cincinnati tour since i live 5 minutes from there but they have this one for the all the tours close to there. If you sign up for the tour anyone can play in it. Its a 2 day tournament as well so you would get a good feel for it. Im going down that friday and playing the course. the tournament is april 4th and 5th.

Ahh I see, thanks for letting me know. I live so far from Cincinatti that it wouldn't make a lot of sense for me to sign up, but it does sound like a fun tour. I may just look at trying to have a weekend getaway up there to get a couple of rounds in. I just looked at the schedule though and that state-am qualifier is the day after another qualifier that I'm for sure going too so that would make for a long weekend if I try to make them both.

Just checked out the tours. Unfortunately I live in an area that really doesn't have much close. The Indiana/Western KY tour looks like mostly indiana and is several hours away. The Nashville tour is probably my best bet, though it's still about 2ish hours away. I will probably try to do a couple select events, but there's no way I could make the whole tour. Looks like a lot of fun though. Thanks, good luck to you as well. I mainly just play local tournaments, but this year i'm going to try for the state-am and maybe some of these golfweekly tournaments. Do you play the entire tour?

    • Ball likely in casual water but uncertain
      You're exactly right. At first I meant we were told to re tee if we could not find it, meaning unplayable stroke and distance, same as a lost ball but obviously you must call the correct penalty. But that makes no sense because it would just be a free drop if certain the ball was in. But what ACTUALLY occured was because of the cold and forecast of pouring rain (which happened) they made an odd rule where we could re tee without penalty if we saw the ball go in. So I did not do the free re tee, which someone in the group did a few holes before, beause we were not sure, AND we didn't rake it out, so it was declared a lost ball. But the other kid who did not do a re tee because he thought he saw his ball clear the sand, took a free drop without finding it, all within the rules. The bunker was on the right side of the fairway so my line was further and to the right of the kid who took the drop, who hit it straight and short. All i can vividly remember is us standing in the pouring rain and cold, dragging rakes through a bunker full of deep water, and finding every other golf ball! Crazy!  I think you got to the real oddity where an unidentified unplayable is the same penalty as a lost ball, but called something different. Unless there is some difference? I guess if it is found before you hit the next shot you would not be able to play it where it lies in the unplayable scenario, granted you did not declare the lost ball lost yet (then no penalty). Is there any other difference? I guess both you can tee it up after the penalty, and you still can't go more than 2 clubs behind the tee markers in the unplayable scenario I believe. Wonder if there are any other differences between lost ball and unplayable but unidentified.
    • Ball likely in casual water but uncertain
      I think we are talking about a couple of different things.  First, I don't really understand the "local rule" you were given in your tournament with regards to the flooded bunkers.  When you say re tee, did they tell you to play your stroke over with no penalty.  Can't do that. As far as declaring a ball unplayable, this is different than taking relief for Casual Water.  You may in fact declare a ball unplayable without finding it, but in this case, you must play your next stroke from the spot where you played your last.  (Stroke and Distance)  If you think about it, its the same procedure as if you were to lose your ball.  Under the ball unplayable rule there is a one stroke penalty. Iacas gave you the rule for taking relief from casual water in a bunker.  In order to do this, it must be known or virtually certain the ball is in the casual water.  
    • My Swing (coop6)
      @coop6. You're right about opening up too fast. I should have worded differently. It's not that your body isn't moving where it needs to move. It's that your arms aren't moving with your body enough. Or you might say the body isn't inluencing the motion of the arms. Try the Dufner towel under arms drill, it's an extreme drill but it will help this. Your body rotation has to help turn the club back to square, that is the whole idea, feel the body and upper arms turning the club back. Once that happens you won't have to flip the club shut right after impact.

      @iacas see it now
    • My Swing (adragon0216)
      There is no such thing as a strong grip. There is a stronger left hand or stronger right hand. If you strengthen the right hand grip this will help close the face. If you weaken the left hand grip this will also help close the face, though less so. Stand taller and flatten the swing out until you are older. Don't try to be so bent over at the hips at impact. Take lessons so you don't get hurt swinging this way. Your shoulders should turn level through the ball. Like I said don't increase the bend from the hips at impact.
