Monsieur,

I looked at a second home in the area, and inquired about joining the Cliffs network of clubs. The $150,000 initiation fee cleared that up right quick! Just curious how you managed to get on the course, knowing that you aren't local... I asked to play a round when looking at properties, and they said no, even if I was a prospective member. Seemed odd, and maybe they weren't taking me seriously.

Anyway, they all look like gorgeous, well-maintained courses. And yes, Tiger is involved in building a new Cliffs course in the area... Enjoy the round, and post your experiences, please.

Me and the wife just played Cliffs Vineyard today. Everything is 1st class there. If you get a chance try to go there too.
FWIW, if you buy property the family membership is only 50k now.

I ended up playing at the Cliffs at Keowee Vinyards because the Cliffs at Glassy were being earrated and was closed. We had someone in our company that has a membership and was able to set up the tee time.

The course is amazing and is the first Fazio course that I have played. The course goes through the natural terrain very nicely with elevated greens, shots over canyons and water and breathtaking views. The course was in superb condition and it was a great round.

We had dinner at the clubhouse afterward and the food was exceptional. The service is top notch. On a side note...I was wearing some cargo shorts and they almost made me buy some regular shorts as they have a no cargo short policy. I'm glad that they let me slide...but I didn't see any information on the web site...as if I had, I would have dressed apporpriately.

I would love to go back some day and when I have an extra $150k lying around, I would consider joining!

Shot a 94...certainly not my best showing. I put a lot of balls into the trees and I think I took 5-6 penalty's because of that. It took me about 4 holes to settle down and I started playing better. I think that if I played it again, I would certainly see a better score. My putting was great...just took me a bit to get to the green. Beautiful course.

Vinyards is far easier than Glassy; I would guess 8-10 strokes from the tips, especially if you haven't played either one before. You can see what you have at the Vinyards, Glassy is another story. Have to hit accurate 275 yd drives high to get anything going. Glassy sure has my respect!!!!

I've played Vineyards and Glassy. Glassy will rip your throat out. It's just a very tough course. Lots of very difficult elevation changes. Vineyards is a great track as well, just not as tough for me as the mountain course. I also echo what was said about how classy the Cliffs courses are. It's a first class operation.

    • It was fun to watch, Rory slowly moving up the leaderboard and with Chappell becoming a bit nervy on the final holes, Rory made it into a playoff. Rory didn't take full advantage of his shots on the par 5, and on the 15th I thought he had lost it. But great putts on the 15th and 16th to win in. What a fantastic golfer to watch, and he can smash the ball out there, almost hit his drive it in the lake on 18.
    • The length of the driving range is limited by houses and a road. So the ball flight is way shorter as with normal balls. So what reads 200 yards on the driving range in reality is much shorter. But I think this does not really matter for now. What I found out is the following. When doing my grip I twist my left wrist extremly to the right. At impact this delofts my clubs a big time. The head is very closed. The iron 7 I was talking about at least becomes an iron 4 loftwise ( i am judging this by eye on comparing to my other clubs). So now numbers maybe begin to make sense. Loftwise we are talking about an iron 4. What happens to the driver is that it even gets a negative loft which explains why balls just go up in the air with a very long tee. The 3 wood on the other hand gets the loft the driver should have. So this makes the longest shots. This is also explains why I had a very hard time hitting my hybrid. This hybrid (4 iron) becomes something like a club with loft 0.  So probably I am twisting my wrist to much ( there is a special term for this hand position which I don't remember). But this gives me 2 advantages. 1) I don't slice the ball with the driver 2) It is easier to hit down on the ball with the iron for me. Before this I had the wrist turned to the left (I think this is called neutral grip) which did not work at all for me. So I think in general this hand position helps a lot when not overdoing it. The V of the left hand index and middle finder should point to the right shoulder as far as I know. My V pointed right of my shoulder. I will tweak this position a bit. I think I am just overdoing it at the moment. I am pretty sure the iron 7 distance will get down when doing this and the driver distance will get up. We will see.
    • How many softball questions get lobbed at each candidate? How many times will Trump say "Believe me!" and "It's like incredible" the word "tremendous" and "Crooked Hillary" How many times Hillary will dance around the e-mail scandal? Will Hillary blow up? Will Hillary challenge Trump to do arithmetic? Or will that be out of bounds? It will be interesting to hear how lowering taxes on the rich and lowering corporate taxes will balance the budget - I've heard that whopper before. Will Trump challenge Hillary on the 2nd amendment? Will Hillary challenge Trump on his pandering to the religious right with the "freedom of speech and religion" proposal to allow discrimination against GLBT people.  Will either of them persuade me to not vote for Gary Johnson?
    • Haha, I've done that while walking.  The thing that made it embarrassing for me is I did it 2 or 3 times in the same round before I finally started catching myself.
    • I think there's a large old thread exactly like this already actually, just need to dig it up. Anyway, weirdest I've encountered was people rolling a cart.  I've also hit 2 geese myself (both with drives).
