Combine that with the fact that they have a lot of regulars that book those early tee times most days and I'm probably just going to be crossing my fingers each time I show up out there. I guess I can stick to the 9 hole par 3 course down the street that I can play on 45 minutes. :)
I'd like to get more on course practice with the long clubs though.
Find yourself a group. They're almost always looking for new members.
Some dummy like me makes all the arrangements and emails everyone with the details. Most stick to a pretty regular weekend morning schedule and a lot are able to negotiate good rates in exchange for bringing out their happy little group of knuckleheads.
Go when you can, skip whe you must, but you'll play more, usually for less money, and you'll meet a bunch of good guys along the way.
