One other thought...
If someone asked if you wanted to join him for a round at a public course, would you automatically expect that he would pick up the tab?
Private clubs charge a guest fee when a member brings a guest. At most upscale private clubs, that fee is often relatively high compared to the greens fees at even nice public courses. That’s done intentionally to minimize outside guest play. Of course additional costs such as caddie fees, tips, and food and beverage are extra.
Just for perspective, at my nice, but by no means “high-end” club, I’ll expect to pay somewhere around $100 for a guest to play and have a drink or 2 afterwards. No caddies...
Day 507. Just some carpet putting this morning. (25 minutes or so) Busy, no golf day in front of me.
Normal focuses, and goals. Those being to hit a straight putt, on a line, to my target.
Did the rolling the ball over a dime, 18" in front of the ball practice routine. This to make sure I was rolling straight putts.
After that, an unopened can of peas served as a 5' foot target. What ever works.
