Rain on League Day/Night…


Recommended Posts

True.  Especially when you’ve been looking forward to it all week!

Absent a washout that closes the course completely, do they still play?  Or is it a fair weather only group?

We will/do play in light rain, but I'm definitely a fair weather golfer.  I hate playing in the rain.

I feel your pain. Through nine weeks of league, we have had four cancellations and four days of playing through light rain. Feels like we get sun all week and then rain every Thursday.

You know what's worse than playing golf in light rain?  Lots of things, and among them is not playing golf.

I hate playing in the rain too.  It’s got to be a pretty significant tournament/event to drag my sorry butt to the course in even light rain.

Not as bad as having a tornado blow by your course the day before. I was impressed that they remained open, but there was bits of building debris all over the course.

Well Mother Nature shined on this area yesterday.  Turned out to be a nice evening for golf.  League has been charmed this year.  Not one rainout even though the rain here has been seemingly never ending.

I play in a 9 hole league every Thursday and I can’t stand when it’s called because of rain. What bothers me most is even if it’s only a light rain, people will walk straight to the car and leave before it officially been called. It’s florida so in a lot of cases, if they had just waited 20 minutes, we could’ve played but since they left, the whole day had to be cancelled.

This Wednesday our league was called because of significant thunderstorms. Same as two weeks ago and rain ( but no lightning) last week. Weather here in Cincinnati area has been rain, rain, rain for much of the spring. Two weeks ago was even after three and in great shape after drive on four when it started lightning. All I could think was "NOT NOW!".

    • I’ve almost completed the main game of Hollow Knight. An incredible game that I knew nothing about before playing. It’s a Metroidvania like game and quite extensive. It feels like the Soulsborne of platformers. Somewhat in the vein of the Ori games, but more extensive and challenging. It’s not as difficult as games like Wings og Vi, Boshy and Roah, but takes some precise controlling. You can become a bit OP by collecting and upgrading, which makes it more manageable, not too different from Soulsborne.
    • Day 517: Played 18 today with new concepts/feels from my lesson to address my bad hook misses. Didn’t feel like I was playing particularly great, but scored well (79), and zero hooks. Shots that I didn’t control the club face well were straight fades or slightly pushed fades, all playable. Driver wasn’t good today but only hit it on three holes.
    • Sugar Hill Golf Club - Front Nine 49 Stupid mistakes cost me on three holes. I went bogey, triple (8 on a par 5), bogey, double, bogey, bogey, double, bogey, par.  On both doubles, I couldn't find my ball and had to take a drop.  On the first one, I never heard it hit any trees or anything, but I lost it into the setting sun.  I have no doubt that it was somewhere in the deep Bermuda rough along the right side of the fairway, but I never found it.  The second was well struck (out of the rough because of a topped 3 hybrid) and based on my aim, it should have been okay, but it was nowhere to be found.  The par-five ninth was a series of five almost perfect shots on a difficult, sloping double dogleg hole.
    • Thank you I appreciate that. What made the birdies so nice that all my shots in both of them were great shots. One thing a person of my handicap has a hard time doing is being consistent. When I I'm consistent, even only through one hole or two, it feels great. I shot an 80 on the course which was also very good for my level, and this was after shooting 102 just days before , LOL.
    • First off, is this the oldest topic in the forum? 15 Years, wow. This discussion about the greatest of all time is mute.  All sports have the same point and counterpoints. Most Home-runs, best hitter in baseball, most Super Bowl Rings, on and on. Comparing athletes from different eras are practically impossible. From changes ranging from physicality to equipment, travel, nutrition, playing conditions, shorter courses vs longer courses, stadiums indoor vs outdoor, astroturf, lowering the mounds, 3 point lines, instant replay and more. Best of an “ERA” I could believe in that. Sustainability in a sport is a good measure, but not those that linger.  Having the most Majors?  Most Super Bowl Trophies? Individual sports, Team Sports? Jack vs Tiger?  Take your pick.
