Hello I'm from CT

Hello, I'm a 34 year old middle school teacher who has just started golfing this season. I usually play at the orchard in Milford or short beach in Stratford. I'm here to soak up all of the knowledge I can to improve my golf game. Also looking for people to play with.

Hello,

I'm a 34 year old middle school teacher who has just started golfing this season. I usually play at the orchard in Milford or short beach in Stratford. I'm here to soak up all of the knowledge I can to improve my golf game. Also looking for people to play with.


Hmmm... You live in New Milford but, play 45+ miles to the south??? You must teach / work down there and knock out 9 or 18 after work.

I usually play in at Sunset Hill in Brookfield and occasionally Candlewood Valley in New Milford or Richter Park in Danbury.

Welcome to the forum.

Well my dad lives in Milford and plays with us. I have played at sunset and absolutely hated it. Lol I have not played at richter park yet because it is expensive. Yeah I usually play after work especially if we have a half day. I'm looking to play at some courses north of me in litchfield.

LOL... yeah, Sunset is narrow, tight and you have to know it well. When I played with my nephew at a course in Greenwich I was shocked at the width of the fairways.LOL   But, for me it's only about 5 miles from home so, I play whenever I want as much as I want.

Richter is a nice course and yes, I get the resident rate. I just don't play it that often due to the making a specific tee time as a single.

OTOH, Candlewood Valley I usually just show up, check with the starter and he always says yes, he has open slots and to go pay.

Is Candlewood ever reasonable as far as price?

IMO they are.

The 18 holes / cart / and lunch is a good deal. It's not just a hamburger or a hot dog either. I'm a walker but, if I'm there on the "special" I go for it.

Anyways, here's their rates.  http://candlewoodvalleygolf.com/?page_id=117

What's the price of that special and is it a certain day? I didn't see the special on the website.

Never mind I found it. $50 bucks does t seem too bad for 18 a cart and lunch.

      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.

    • 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.
