If I was limited to just one course for the rest of my golfing life, it would be Spyglass at Pebble Beach. I love playing that course. That would be Heaven for me. While we are at it, Hell would be that Rockwood course near Ft Worth
Yeah there should be buckets of water out on the course fro towel wetting. It's a better idea than putting your clubs in the bed of your pickup, forgetting they are there and driving through a car wash. Been there, and done that. I also carry a spray bottle in my bag, which works well with my "magic eraser" which is what I clean my clubs with.
When you tell yourself you are ready. You are the only one who can really answer that question. Personally, I don't think any golfer needs permission from others to play a longer course. You pay your money, and go play like everyone else. If you can't keep the ball in play "most" of the time, just make sure you bring enough balls so you can just drop one, and move on. I remember the first time I played a regulation 18. I went out as a single, and was paired with a guy who had his name on his bag. Just a little intimidated I was. He shot par, and I wasn't even close. I think I was already at par on the 13th hole. As we were walking off the 18th green I asked him what he thought of my newby game. "You have a few things to learn" was his answer.
