Sounds like your course is a bit greedy.  Next thing you know you won't be able to use your own clubs... you'll have to rent.

Pretty common at high end clubs.

But high end clubs should have better push carts no? The few I’ve played at had Clic Gear, although a slightly stripped down version.

High end clubs typically want you to carry or take a caddie.

Is there a pushcart stigma on high-end courses?

I remember reading some old Golf Digest article quoting Trump as saying pushcarts are "a bad look".

To each their own. I got little interest in places like that.

Idiots are back. There’s a par four dogleg right hole with a hazard at the bend on my league course. There’s a bridge there too! But while we were playing, a grounds crew member was posting signs to keep idiots from driving though the hazard. There were cart tracks in it. They were lucky that the cart didn’t get stuck.

The GAM, (Golf Association of Michigan), is going back to shotgun starts for some of their tournaments, after a year of 1st hole tee-offs only. They figured with 1st hole only tee times that it would cut down on golfers congregating during C19 pandemic. Although, with Michigan covid ramping up, we will see.

No. We've rolled back to phase 2. Which means no rakes, no ball washers, etc. Bunkers are GUR.

You're in Florida dude.  The land of denial.

The Land of "They got it right".

Almost back to normal.

Masks NOT mandatory, since the Governor's Mandates were ruled unconstitutional (rightfully so).  Wear them if you want to.  Maybe 5% to 10% wear them inside.  One or two of the employees wear them...it's their choice.

We can pull the flags if desired.  Still have the foam in the cups.

No ball washers, no rakes.  No limitations on carts.

Beer carts are working on the weekends.

In just the past week or so the pool noodles are out of the cups, and rakes are back out.  We've had food and beverage service on the deck all along, with limited indoor seating all along, and we still have limited seating indoors.  We're seeing a lot more two-person carts now as people are being vaccinated, but you can still ride as a single.  We're not planning any shotgun starts for tournaments yet, trying to avoid larger gatherings.  So we're progressing towards normal, not there yet.

I think at the local Trump golf club, trolleys aren't allowed, caddies are highly encouraged.  Yet if you go to the home of golf, all the locals use trolleys.  Ah well, we all have our own opinions.

Depends on the course in the South Sound, WA. Privately owned courses are leading the way back to adding rakes, etc. No course I play is back to normal.

Where does Chambers Bay stand?

The final piece is in place and golf is (almost) back to normal. Outhouses have been installed again on the course. Not such a big deal now that everything is leafing out again, but still.  😉

The only thing missing is to have the Canadian border open again and have those golfers back on the course but, in the meanwhile, it's golf when you want no tee time required so that's good.

Chambers is still requiring players to park at the practice facility and walk up to the first tee. At least the grill and other facilities remain open even if Pierce County went back to phase 2.

Why do I picture these two from your post?

It's been back to normal here since May of last year. Well, they finally removed the pool noodles from the holes last month, so now it's 100% back to normal.

    • And yet the NFL and NCAA exist and the others do not. So who really won? No damages awarded? Pyrrhic victory at best. LIV only exists to try and take the PGAT down. They will fail as the others did. Your argument is still very weak.
    • Day 59 (12 Aug 22) a rainy inside day, worked on lag putts from about 15’ and chipping whiffle balls into a small bucket (the latter is a constant game with the grandson - he was my chipping partner today).

    • You can search the topic, and yes, it has been mentioned. Recently. Not the PGA Tour's fault that there's no "meaningful choice." Plus the word "meaningful" is doing a lot of heavy lifting there. They have a choice. They have several choices. PGA Tour players make about the same percentage of what their sport creates as players in other sports. Golf is a niche sport. It's not the freaking NFL. It's not even the NHL. The law hasn't spoken on this. So, no, not "regardless of the law." And, let's remember, the TRO was denied. If the judge felt the suspensions were not legal, that would have played a role in her granting the TRO.
