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.

My club is pretty much back to normal.  2 riders per cart, rakes in bunkers, ball washers with water, food available inside, etc. Masks are optional except for staff...they must wear masks. The number

Unfortunately I have only played 1 course where a caddie was an option and I was already paired up with a dude in a cart! I mostly play munis and public courses. No caddies, you either, ride, car

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.

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.

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.

    • It is insane this is still being talked about. I read that people are saying he was the winner. Crazy!
    • Day 109.  Round of 16 of my club's match play.  I lost 3&2 but made a new friend.  There's this issue that happens to me at this course we played (not our home course due to availability of tee times).  It's come up a few times, but ... my second shot on the first three holes, plus my tee shot on the par-3 4th, were horrible.  Seems to happen to me I hit a few bad early shots, despite getting to the course, stretching, and warming up.  Despite this, still had sub-10 handicap baseline strokes gained: approach.  And for the first time, sub-10 handicap baseline SG:driving.  I also did some "miss the green" short game shots from what should be easy positions today... did that four times, totally inexcusable. I sank some long putts even but missed some short ones.  Putting was sub-20 handicap level today, which was cool.  Gotta pull it all together at some point again. 
    • Day 3 June 12 - Went to the driving range to get used to a new wedge. I had a wedge fitting yesterday and needed to find out if I could hit touch shots with it in addition to the full shots. 25 shots with it. Done. Then went on to work on getting through the shot with my irons. I need to get my weight forward and stay on plane through the shot better. Why is it so easy to stay on plane with my 5W? I can return that on the original shaft plane and smoke shot after shot. But why is it so much more difficult with my irons? I need to take a video and look at this. I need to look at what I'm doing with my 5W and move that over to my irons.
    • I’ll keep it simple and short... my draw bias ZX hybrids I can’t hit, they just go left.  I’m thinking about buying the ZX5 4-iron and trying to figure out 14th club.... At Genny I rarely have to hit either hybrid.... but longer courses I’d be between 3-wood and 5-iron. (The 4-iron is a 6-8 week wait).    I usually don’t mind a hybrid (don’t mind hitting the ball high)... I’m looking basically at a few options... It’s not exactly easy to bend the lie of a hybrid but thought about flatten the lie to reduce the hook a bit. Get a Pro model hybrid. Or get a 5 or 7 wood...  Thoughts?    Yes I’m down to a 1.5 handicap, and shouldn’t really need equipment help... but I’m an adult and don’t know everything.
    • Similar to last  year I am looking to break 90 and then eventually 85 this year. My previous round was a 92 and I am improving.
