The reason I am asking is because I seem to have a horrible time finding playing partners. I assume a lot of people have gotten together with friends previous to golf and their friendship continued onto the course. Unfortunately for me, the only person I am previously friends with/related to that play golf is my brother. None of my current friends/co-workers are interested in playing due to a variety of reasons. So I generally golf with my brother when he is interested but I definitely play more often than he does so that leaves me as a single often.
On the course I am have been paired up with several individuals and almost all of them have been successful outings. Everyone seemed to have a good time and no major personality conflicts. None of these have developed into future meetings though for whatever reason. One of the biggest obstacles I face seems to be ago, especially when I try to play in leagues or best ball outings. It seems that for the most part the age of golfers I meet in this area are 55-60+ and I am 31. They don't seem very interested in meeting newer players because they already have their foursomes set or at the least a group of set people they play with.
So what ways have you found to find other golfers who are at the same interest level as you? I generally play single and while it certainly doesn't bother me I do like to group up ever so often for a chance of pace.
