New member here, I've been lurking for a few days, and this looks like a good place to be. Just coming back to the game after a long layoff (undergrad and law school) and I've finally got a little bit of a time to work on my game a bit. Enjoying it again, and after shooting the best 9 holes of the year today (39) I'm feeling pumped.
Nice to meet everyone and if there are Richmond, VA folks, I'm always looking for someone to play with.

The Hollows in Hanover County. A fun little budget course that was empty today.

Just checked out the website... that IS a little budget course. Might have to trek down 95 sometime.

Sycamore Creek is probably one of the best public courses in the Richmond area as far as condition goes.

Brookwoods is also a pretty nice one except for a couple holes that get a little water logged as well as a couple holes with some new housing construction near them.

Here's their websites;

Richmond is home for me, and I used to own a home in New Kent on Brookwoods golf course. I live in Lynchburg now, but second that course, along with Belmont. The latter was host for a pretty big-deal PGA event many years ago and has a bit of pedigree, though you'd only know by looking at the photos in the clubhouse. Its a good course, and might offer a few photo opps. Knowing its history is the best part though.

If you're going out to New Kent (15 minutes from downtown RIC), you might as well play Royal New Kent or Brickshire, in that order.

I was in RIC today for a golf outing at the Stonehenge Golf & Country Club and it was superb. I wore a short sleeve windshirt for half the round and a no-wind jacket for the rest. Its supposed to warm up later in the week though.

Welcome back to golfing.

I live in Warrenton but come through Richmond and Williamsburg on my way to the Tidewater area to visit customers. I was supposed to hit Golden Horseshoe a month ago but plans changed. Maybe in a few weeks when I get back down there if it isn't too cold.

I'm in Fredericksburg, VA. I'm brand new to the game, and looking for an instructor. Do you know of any good golf instructors in the area? I'm willing to travel.

My favorite course ever was a linls-stule course outside of Richmond. Had bee shooting in mid-80's at the time and scored a low 90 on the course. At least for me it looks a lot more intimidating than it really is but it would be advisable to move forward a set of tees.

    • Good to have golfers from all over the planet here. See you around! Under the "How To..." drop down menu above, there are all kinds of things there you might want to scan through. How to create an "avatar" How to get "Achievements" (those little icons that show up at the bottom of your posts) How to quote people or other sources How to embed video. Just lots of the details about how things get done here. Since you're interested in instruction, don't miss the "Info...Instructional Content" link in the menu above. Also linked here below. That'll give you a sense of some of the top instruction threads that have been created here in the past. Lastly, you mentioned that there are lots of "tips" here- and you'll quickly find that this site does not promote the idea of hunting the internet for "tips." This site is all about finding the correct priority for fixing a swing (not always easy for us golfers to know) and then applying practice techniques to address that one thing. Then move on to the next priority. I'm not saying that I think you are one of these "tip-hunters", but since you mentioned the word, I just wanted to put it out there that there are lots of testimonies here about the futile search for "tips" on the internet and not improving much as a result of going from one tip to another.  Anyway, welcome! Here's the thread I mentioned above.  
    • Winston Salem only carries balls. The other stores are at least 1.5 hours away.
    • I agree.... my mechanics are to blame much more than my composure, as is the case with the majority of us.  If you read my comment in context of the previous comments, you'll see I wasn't claiming composure>physical at all. 
    • Revealing thread, there are varying "definitions" of what's mental and what's physical. I would have called game planning, green reading and just practicing effectively mental, along with just maintaining composure/managing pressure/stress. What's the essential difference between someone who just mindlessly bashes ball after ball at the range vs someone who practices with purpose? "The way I look at it in golf is that the mental game is a mechanism for fulfilling physical potential. Physical potential being a function of natural ability and effort put in through practice, instruction, conditioning, etc. Physical potential won’t automatically be transferred to the golf course in the form of performance. That is where a strong mental game steps in and allows the body to perform the tasks it has already been trained to do. In other words, the mental game bridges physical potential and physical performance. When faced with consequence on the golf course, the physical motion the body already knows how to perform can be hindered by doubt, fear, and anxiety. Our mind and body know how to physically execute the shot, and the mental game is required to protect that ability by warding off the potential doubt, fear or anxiety."
    • Today I came across to this video and just wanted to share it with you guys Her swing looks great!
