New golfer in Boston, MA

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

'Allo, everyone... new-ish golfer here. Finally decided to join and stop trying to soak up information passively! I've only just started playing, to the tune of 2 rounds with friends and 4 trips to the range. I'm not as horrible as I'd feared, but far less talented than I wished... I'm reasonably athletic, so this is driving me bananas. That said, that particular feeling seems to come with this game: my dad especially assures me that it is in fact the case. However, I have a rather open summer, and a goal of playing as well as I can with some deliberate practice and dedication. We'll see how that goes! 

 

Off to post my first "Member Swing," although I'm mildly horrified. I've seen "feel ain't real" on this forum already, but whoa...

 

Cheers!

Welcome to the site.

Welcome and good luck to develop your game: feel aint real, but it aint unreal either - as with many things in golf, the answer is somewhere in the inbetween. Good Luck! :beer:

Thanks for the welcome guys! I'm glad to be here. I do think I've got a while to go before I can actually play with @@jamo though @@iacas! Great to be pointed to someone local though. Much appreciated!

Weclome @yupintherough .  There are a few of us in the area.

Good to know! Can't say I'm surprised really, since we appear to have more courses around here than I would ever have expected, having not noticed them all driving around in the normal course of things. Plenty to explore once I get a bit of improvement under my belt!

Welcome fellow M@sshole.

I searched "Boston" in the forum search, because I too just moved to Boston! 2 weeks ago actually. Excited to hit up the local courses and connect with some fellow Boston golfers!

Don't know if anyone has seen this yet, but thought this article was pretty good about playing golf in Boston! https://nextgengolf.org/nextgen-graduate/5-tips-for-city-golfers-in-boston/

M@ssholes unite! Haven't managed as many lessons as I'd hoped by now, but a fair number of rounds. Of course, that means most of y'all are lucky: I continue to ensure you don't have the worst handicap on this board from our fair state! I'll have to carve out more time ASAP (& update my swing thread to something a bit less embarrassing)....

If your looking for a lesson in the city, Jesse Struebing has a spot inside MIT.  He helped me out a lot even though I have only been to him twice I have definitely cut some strokes off my HC because of him

Hey there, thanks for the recommendation - you're actually the second person to recommend Jesse, which is awesome since he's right across the river. I've been in touch and we're looking to connect after he returns from the holiday weekend: hopefully, I'll have the same results! Feeling a bit better about seeing someone now anyhow; my swing is a *bit* less embarrassing than it was when I started at the end of May (i.e., I can usually connect with the ball and have a decent result vs. whiff city). Fingers crossed and can't wait!

 

Cheers...
