Simple, reliable, time-saving tool for accurate yardages.

Posted

Pros: Battery life gives you 3-4 full rounds of life, light weight (relative to a wristwatch), reliability, simplicity of use, quick charge time.

Cons: One has to use a USB port (laptop or other converter) to charge it.

I came across one of these GPS watches on sale at Golfsmith for a steal at $179.  I used it in a round an hour later and it worked like a charm.  I was not looking for a crazy gizmo that tells me yardage from my left foot to the bunker next to the water.  I just wanted something simple that gives me yardage to front, middle, back, and the Neo Plus GPS watch does just that.     Play-by-play on use It acts as a wristwatch until you use the side buttons to "Play Golf."  I am no dummy but I found it pretty simple to use, without even having to read the instructions.  The "menu" button gives you the option to "Play golf."  Once you've selected...

Higher trajectory and reduced fade with forgiving club face

Posted

Pros: Distance stayed around the same - but a higher trajectory ball flight with less roll makes long shots to the green much less menacing

Cons: Some golfers may not appreciate the club at address

The regular flex shaft certainly has flex but feels firm.  This club inspires confidence at address and resembles the driver identically expect for of course the size.     The clubhead cover is clean sturdy and compact.  No BS frills just a clean headcover.  It is very thick and cushioned.   Trackman I compared this...

Quality and value meet downtown skyline views

Posted

Pros: Engaging golf course that offers blind shots, lots of elevation changes, and views of downtown Houston.

Cons: If you're an environmental nut, you might go a little crazy about the "live" rocking horse pumps working wells off the fairways ;)

This course is divided into the Highlands and Lakes.   The first time I played this course was a company scramble.  It was well organized and a whole lotta fun.  On normal days, a dispatcher handles tee times and is very prompt.  Slow play is minimal.   Gorgeous scenery is abound and if you look north you'll glimpse the picturesque Houston skyline (one of the most impressive in the nation).   The greens are well cared for and the sand is always consistent.  Though the courses are fair, elevation changes will leave even the most talented golfers pacing up and down hills finding lines of sight.     Value is tops, as this course...
