Hello from NC!
TheSandTrap.com Top Picks
Welcome. As a 10 a month in you're already ahead of a lot of people. Where you at in NC? Where do you play?
Sounds like we are along the same course man. I am 31 and although I played, or rather hacked, off and on up until about 6 years ago when my clubs were stolen I never took it serious or put any real effort into it up until a few months ago. At the most I played maybe 6 or 7 times a year so I definitely view this as beginning golf. Now I can honestly say that I am totally addicted playing at least once a week and driving range as much as possible. I love to travel and look forward to playing the different courses around the area as well as maybe some longer trips. Would love to find some similar skilled players to play with and maybe even plan a fall trip to Myrtle for a few days on the links.
Welcome to the sand trap! I'm in Charlotte, but I travel to Raleigh about 6 times a year for work. We need to have a NC Sandtrap meetup! This sport is addictive. I applaud you for your efforts with weight loss. I'm down 20 lbs since February, and I'm still losing. One of the best pieces of advice I can give you...
1. Walk the course rather than ride a cart (assuming no physical conditions that would hinder you)
2. Do NOT waste your money on cheap golf shoes! I'm sure that there are good shoes in most brands, but I recently purchased some FootJoy Contours, and these things LITERALLY changed my life! I swear I'm playing a totally different sport now!
Hit em straight bro!
I'm all for it guys...though i will admit im not much of a walker on the course...but definitely just getting out and being active the weight is coming off of me in a hurry. Also, I'm right in the middle of everyone...45 minutes to charlotte, 45 to greensboro, 35 to winston, just over an hour to both raleigh and pinehurst and around 3 1/2 to myrtle. :)
