Well, maybe not cheating, but makes you look like an asshat in front of friends. 

 

"Yeah I normally shoot in the 70s"

 

Then proceed to shoot an 88 on a course you don't know.

 

 

I guess what I'm trying to say is that it gives you a more accurate handicap.

That I completely understand.

 

I've never met a person who has any idea what they're handicap is, so I forget that there are people who do know lol.

Chester le street golf course, in Durham, England.

 

This is from the tee box on the 2nd hole.

 

Dog leg left, up hill towards Lumley Castle.

And this is the castle - now used as a wedding venue / hotel.

 

It is named for its original creator, Sir Ralph Lumley, who converted his family manor house into a castle in 1389 after returning from wars in Scotland. However, after being implicated in a plot to overthrow Henry IV he was imprisoned and ultimately executed, forfeiting his lands to the Earl of Somerset

I'll be playing there tomorrow for the first time.
 

A lot of water, but most of the holes set up nicely for my slight driver fade.

I've been there. I hope to get back again for a round later this year. Jimmy Hanlin's a good guy. They just went private, I think, no?

This summer, I've added 4 courses to my normal rotation as I signed up for a summer league.

 

They are:

The Nicklaus Tournament Course at PGA West

The Greg Norman Course at PGA West

La Quinta Resort Mountain Course

La Quinta Resort Dunes Course

 

In addition to those four I also regularly play both courses at Terra Lago (I still consider this to be my "home" course), SilverRock, and The Classic Club.

Yeah, I know what you mean, I felt bad to break par after shooting two consecutive 71's on my former home course, Cedar Point Golf Club, a par 72 layout in Maryland. Okay not really, but I still felt like I couldn't mark them down as legitimate rounds since I was playing alone.  Yeah, things got weird in my head when playing with no competition or attestors. Then factor in how well I knew the course at the time too. I shot a 75 from the championship tees during the club championship I competed in that same year. I'm still more proud of that than the two breaking par rounds that preceded it (1980).

i play a course called majestic oaks here in minnesota. they have 3 courses: signature (nice, little long though, i think it was 7000 last time i played), crossroads (like a municipal course), and a 9 hole executive course with 2 par 4s.

 

i bought an $80 card so i can play 18 with a cart on the crossroads whenever for $18 including tax. the executive with the card is $6, and i think the signature is $32 with a cart. without the card it's $50 with a cart to play the crossroads.

 

i played other courses around me, but the value, variety, and proximity made this my de facto course.

 

now if they would stop hosting massive private tournaments all the time i would get more rounds in.

My home course is Mill Creek Country Club http://millcreek.cc, designed by Ted Robinson, (who also designed Sahalee among 160+ other courses) it's a great course, has great practice facilites, driving range, club house, etc.... And since it's private you don't run into hackers and slow players very often so that's nice too...

Dead Horse Lake Golf?  That the one in town about 3000 yrds long?  I've played there often when in K'town.  Nice in the winter without the leaves.
