    Yeah we have a short 9 hole par 3 course right by the house. http://www.oasissportspark.com/

    I am going to that first. Thank you guys for the replies. She has never played, she is left handed, and a bit hot headed. Should be awesome, but I want to try it so we can have something to do together outside.

    Playing golf with my wife..
    So my wife and I are going to give it a go and try to play golf together. My question is should we play from the same tee box, or should she play from the closer tee and I play from the middle?

    Also who should shoot first, and will it slow us down a lot playing from different tee's if that is the best option?

    I would hit the driving range a few times before the lessons. That way you can have a good idea of what you want to work on the most. It may be everything, or maybe you hit your driver good, but not your irons. Always good to be prepaired.

    With a GPS can you track each shot? Meaning if I hit driver can I go up to my ball and it will say on hole 9 I hit my driver 270 yards, then I hit a 7 iron 160 yards and then 2 putted?

    Ok, that is what I was wondering. If I could only get one should I go for the 3w or the Hybrid.

    Thank you for the reply!

    Trying to finish up my set
    So I currently have...

    Cobra S3 10.5*
    Cobra S3 Max Hybrid 3 20*
    Cobra S3 Max Hybrid 4 23*
    Cobra S3 Max 5-PW (standard)
    Cleveland 588 RTX 54*
    Cleveland 588 RTX 58*

    I am thinking to finish it out to go with a Cobra Amp Cell 3W-4W, and a Cobra Amp Cell 2H-3H.

    The reason I am thinking "3 Wood" and "Rescue/Hybrid" is during my wedge fitting I was able to hit the 54* 100 yards, and the 58* was 80ish. I was able to swing less or open the club for less distance as well as "man up" and get 5 to 10 more yards if needed.

    I guess I dont have to have 14 clubs, but if money allows it why not right...

    Which version of Cleveland Wedge?
    So I notice there are a few options. REG 588, 588 RTX, and 588 RTX CB. I know the CB are cavity back wedges which should be used for the higher handicap players. But is the REG 588 just last years clubs?

    For me I was thinking of going with a 52* 588 RTX CB (or a Cobra S3 max Gap 49* to match my other irons), 56* 588 RTX CB, and a 60* Standard bounce 588 RTX.

    I usualy shoot in the mid to upper 90's so I was thinking the CB's for the lower loft wedges may help.

    I am coming from a Hippo 52*, no name 56*, and dunlop target special 62*, so I am thinking these will be a huge upgrade... :-)

    BTW if you like another brand better let me know. I have just read a ton about these clubs being good, so like I said anything would be an upgrade!

    Cobra Amp Cell 2-3 Hybrid instead of a fairway wood(s)??
    Would it be ok, or a good idea to fit this club in between by Driver (Cobra S3) and my 3H Cobra S3 Max? I would like something to take the place of my current Steelhead Plus 3 and 5 woods.

    Really want to know if this will work off the tee and off the fairway. I will hit it before I buy it without question, but wanted to know if it is even an option.

    BTW... I am just getting back into the game, and at my best I was shooting in the low 90's, now I am shooting in the low 100's, but plan to get back!
