I would play any goat ranch in the world if I could have some time with my mom again. That being said, I would rather choose the course, Augusta.

Any course? Definitely chose the course and play with random people.

I'm rather solitary any how, so I end up playing with a lot of different characters each year. 

Picking the course would be a once in a lifetime chance because I never figure to cough up the kind of money it would take to play one of the world's best courses. Think it would have to be The Old Course.

For those of you choosing the course OR the playing partners, WHERE or WHO are you choosing?

I'd choose the course. I'd likely have to choose a place I haven't played before, though one I know won't disappoint. Pine Valley, most likely, but that place will eat you up if you're not prepared. Augusta National, some part of your game had better be on point, but you could get it around. Cypress Point, perhaps? I'd be good with any of the three, TBH. Whichever had the best forecast for the day, I guess. 😄

I think this one is pretty easy. I would choose the golf course. I'll take my chances with the playing partners.

I am choosing Augusta National. Its not the best of the architectural masterpiece golf courses (though its pretty dang good), but its the least likely the I will ever have the chance to play on otherwise...so that's what I would go with. Plus I could watch the masters every year knowing I played that course and remember what it was like.

I enjoy both but since I can't sit on the fence, I'll take playing with my regular group at a completely random golf course.    This year, of  the 55 rounds I played, we played 40 different courses.

If talking a single day, then take the course - could be any truly bucket list course.  If talking about a weekly occurrence, take the buddies - life's too short.

I'm going to change my answer.  I think I read Erik's question incorrectly.  I'll go for the random course and play with Arnold Palmer, Ben Hogan and Phil Mickelson.  And if we all have to play a goat track in the middle of nowhere so be it... it'll be a change of pace for those 3 guys.

Not a Tiger fan, though I do admire his comeback from multiple surgeries.  Besides I think those other guys would be more interesting to banter with... eh, maybe not Hogan.  But I want to ask him about his book and swing.  And see if I can get him to sip a Arnold Palmer afterwards in the grill.

Two of those guys are dead. You can't play with them.

Then I'll go with Phil Mickelson, Gary McCord and Erik Barzeski.

Point well taken.  You get a treat for that answer...

Funny.  Kinda.  Perhaps I can play with those boys on a Mexican goat  track on Dias de los Muertos.  How do you say "Fore!" in Spanish?  And now I'll try to get Hogan to sip a good tequilla... loosen him up a little and let him try his swing with a sheet of glass fitted over his head.

    • Slow swing speed here, so lots of headcovers: Driver - 10.5* 5W - 18* 9W - 23* 6H (5i replacement) - 27* 7H (6i replacement) - 30* The gapping from 5W to 7H is about 10 yards per club, so it works well for me.
    • I have a food dehydrator. I bought extra racks for it, too. It takes a bit of time so to me it’s not worth doing in small batches.
    • My driver is a Titleist 913D3, and beyond that my two longest clubs are the matching 4-wood, 17 degree standard bumped down to 16.25 degrees.  And then a 4i.    I used to have the 3-wood in the bag that matches the woods, but the 4-wood has a smaller head which I prefer hitting off the ground.   When it's wet/rainy conditions I swap in a hybrid and take out a 64 degree wedge that I carry for firmer conditions.   That makes the hybrid the second longest after the 4-wood.
