If I start carrying anything extra it's going to be a leaf blower.

welcome to the world of public golf!!!!!!!!!!!!( although some private clubs are not much better)

My home course is semi-private and was once a 55 and over country club. It is pitch mark city. Ironically the best kept courses I play are the rinky-dink city courses. The best greens I play are on a course with $32/w cart fees. They also have the best kept sand despite the abundance of pebbles. But I've yet to find the perfect course. It's always something.

Lmao

Can I please have that quote cemented in history as the #1 quote if all time??

"Kinda hard to fake having a rake when you do not in fact have a rake."

Priceless.

As much as I love @Ernest Jones , I still have to ask:  Wouldn't it be even harder to FAKE having a rake if you did, in fact, have a rake??

.....I'd golf, just not there.

 

I played a residential course in Florida last year and all the carts had rakes. There were no rakes anywhere else on the golf course. At one point I had to go back a couple of holes and get it because I just threw it beside the bunker after using it.

Fair point well made @Golfingdad, although I would argue that they are probably pretty equal in difficulty as they would both involve some kind of optical illusion or sleight of hand. Perhaps a Romulan cloaking device which may actually be obtainable at Fresno's town hall.

LOL, definitely!!

 

BTW, I saw this thread the other day when it was first started.  I thought it was absurd, and I wrote it off.  I would have set the over/under post count by the time it died at something like 2.5.

 

Boy, was I wrong. ;)

I don't think everyone will bring one, so you might be raking for others. I don't want to be a rake man

Be glad I didn't ask if you would still play golf if Zekia's fashion became the norm! :)

If the caveat was that all women who dress like that must have a body like hers, then I would be all for it, and I would definitely be out on the course as much as possible. ;)

What if you have a fake rake to fake the fact that you don't want to take a rake?

Or take a rake you make so you don't have to fake the rake you didn't make, then your buddy Blake flings it into the lake, creating a wake, causing Jake to bake a cake, for Heavens sake!
