I don't wear "gear" anything. Only Places I've been too. I'm lucky that I have the oppertunity to travel quite a bit and have played at many nice places. I'm not saying top end courses, just some very nice public places far from home. I can't afford a $500 bucks a round, but I an play several nice places for less than $200 per trip when I got to go on the road.
Hat from a NAVY SEAL base in Virginia, jumps to mind. Probably the hardest place I've ever been. The NAVY knows some stuff about water, and they've shared it on their Golf course. I lost a tremendous amount of balls there.
A wind breaker from a Public course in New Jersey, Quail brook GC, is my favorite. I want another chance at that one some day! Went to Rhode Island this past summer with two seperate Tee times at two different places, played Triggs one the first day, and cancelled my Tee for the other place and played Triggs for a second time the following day, Played worse the second round.
