Great Set of Forged Irons


Pros: Fairly Forgiving, Great Feel

Cons: Can punish on mishits

I purchased these locally through Craigslist.  At the time I'd been playing a set of off the rack clubs from Sports Authority.  What a difference.  The forged blade equals really "feeling" it when I strike it pure.  The downside of course is that you also feel mishits.  Ball-striking has increased dramatically.   I've been told these are blades.  They are not.  Thy are cavity backs.  I've also been told I shouldn't play them because they are too difficult to hit for a player of my level.  I would have placed more weight in that comment if I didn't subsequently outshoot the person that said it. 

Fantastic Walking Shoe


Pros: Comfortable, No Break In, Durable

Cons: Heavier than others

I've been wearing a pair of Nike Lunar Controls for the past 8 months or so.  I found the toe box a little tight even in the Wide version of the shoe.  These shoes on the other hand are perfect.  Wide is actually wide and comfortable.  My toes don't feel pinched by the end of 18 walking.   The low profile helps me stay on the ball and I've actually seen some improvement in my balance as well.    If you wear a wide shoe and need something that runs true to size, is comfortable enough for walking, and has tremendous grip, these are the shoes for you.

Very nice 27 hole course


Pros: Well maintained, courteous staff, affordable

Visited this course twice in the course of a week long stay in Sarasota.  Loved the facilities and course.  Great greens and fairways with a good mix of challenging/not so challenging holes.  Three nine hole runs makes for variety.  Greens fees include unlimited access to the grass driving range/chipping area/putting area.
