Out of hibernation now, I've been golfing for three weeks now


I'm trying to get out of hibernation. I've only been out once and it was ugly. Many things to work out.

Everywhere and nowhere.

Joking,

Mostly the municipal courses. I can't beat the buy 10 rounds of golf and get two free. I play a lot of 9 hole rounds, so I get 10 rounds at $14 dollars and get two free. Works out pretty good. By the end of the year, I'll probably end up with about 20 free rounds of 9 hole golf.

I plan on getting out more to the other courses this year as well.

Yep. The city league pass is a great deal. Kittyhawk is closest to my house/work and my company has a golf league there. I like to play Homestead up in Tipp too. That place is always in great shape and reasonably priced. This year I bought a membership at Gem City GC. I've been making good use of the practice facilities, but hope to make it out on the course this weekend.

Homestead is a fun course short course, love the greens.

This year I am hoping to hit up Beavercreek and Yankee Trace.

I got a league up at Kittyhawk as well. Monday's on the Hawk in the spring, and Monday's on the Eagle in the summer.

Beavercreek is an awesome course. I've only played Yankee once years ago. It was probably just the day, but play was extremely slow. Heatherwood is also an awesome course. I love the layout of Moss Creek, but the conditions are... meh. Sad story with that one.

The weather is looking good Sunday afternoon. Any takers?

What time and which course were you thinking?

Thinking around 1-2. Pretty open to course.

1-2 sounds good, I am not picky on course. I haven't played many courses yet down here, mostly the two city courses. So I am game for any course.

Do you live north or south?

    • I am with @DaveP043  Just buy the damned tees. or as  Bernie says.."enough of the damned emails".  OTOH, nothing wrong with a bit of lively discussion supported by factual information.
    • I usually like to tee my ball 2" below waist high.
    • Nadir is technically correct but fairly arcane; I've never heard anyone refer to the lowest point of the golf swing as the nadir. I used the term "apex' because in racing it refers to the inside point of the racing line in a turn at which you're closest to the curb. The orientation of hands to clubhead at impact does make a difference. However, the naive solution to being told you're leading the club with the hands is to release your wrists earlier, and done even a little too early this results in "casting" the club which wastes most of the power of the downswing. So, you have to be real careful telling someone who's keeping his wrists too stiff to "release more".
    • Actually, I was just looking back through the old Bulls goalies and there are a bunch of familiar names. Early on you had Doug Dadswell and Sandy Galluppo. Both those guys played for the Cyclones and Sandy had a stint with Dayton before Birmingham. You were one of the many, many stops for old Kalamazoo goalie Mike Torchia, a Michelin man-looking guy that I saw play the Cyclones many times. Last but certainly not least was my old BG buddy Shawn Timm. He played a miserable 15 minutes in goal for the Bulls after his senior season with the Falcons. Gave up three goals and became an investment banker. Great memories.
    • It might not have been the security guards who suggested paying for the damages. He gave them ~ $50 cash. He wasn't 'shaken down', taken to an ATM, relieved of watch, electronics, etc. In the U.S. there is such a thing as a citizen's arrest. It's possible that in Rio some licensed private security guards may be deputized in some way with partial powers to detain for arrest. Every time Lochte's lawyer responds to a media inquiry with 'no comment' it's billable time. If they decide to answer the charges with local representation the money bleed will accelerate. I'm positive paying the donation in lieu of fine in the short term like his teammate did would have been less costly. It would have been even less costly ~ $50 if he had kept his trap shut in the media having already narrowly avoided an official 'on the books' detention / arrest / fine. http://www.people.com/article/ryan-locht-summoned-brazil
