Well...Fall is here and Winter looms...it'll probably snow sometime this month here in Calgary...greens are being aerated etc

My final round is this Sunday on a course where I shot my 3 rounds in the 70's this year. Hopefully can end on a good note

When is your final round?

May have been yesterday. Signed up for our "Last Chance" tournament on the 15th, but life just got busier on the weekend (8lb and 10oz of busy).

dec. 31st.

I'm just in Charlotte too... I pretty much came to post this.

I can play basically all year long.  January and February can be miserable (low 30s and windy) but I am a complete wimp when it comes to cold weather.

I don't ever anticipate a final round.  If the weather dictates it, then maybe it happens, but we have a 50-50 chance of playing right up to the new year, with only an occasional break for weather.  Around here it's just wait and see - keep playing until you can't.

The end of this month is usually the close of the season here.  Aside from a trip to Florida in December it's a long wait until April (end of March if we're really lucky)!

I'll usually go out twice a weekend to take advantage of fall rates until the end of the year and try and get well fed for hibernation.

The just punched our greens for winter and the course officially closes October 23rd. However, we can still walk it till whenever we want, so I'm hoping to get into early December but that's pushing it. Today was my last handicap round so at this point I'm just going out to practice and to just have some fun. This is usually when I experiment with shots and things like that. Though it did snow a little today when I was out but just some flakes in the air, nothing much.

I'm hoping that there isn't a break and that I can play throughout.  Last year we had some snow and cold, so this year maybe the temperate weather will just lead into next spring.

Weather Permitting my last round will be December 31st, and my first round of 2012 will be on January 1st. ^_^

I can't wait till it gets cold and all of the Southern wussies head in to get away from the cold and I'll have the course all to myself.

P.S. I'm just being facetious about the Southern thing, hehe. So don't get mad. :)

We can usually play year around. There will be days that the weather won't permit playing and some where we'll have to wait for the greens to thaw, but for the most part, we play year around.

    • Yes, I'm going to go through all the tutorials. I also started the flight plan to look at Cabot Cliffs in Nova Scotia, but it was too late. Let me get the hang of everything and I'll check out the mutlitplayer. MSFS has already used up 100 GB I suspect it'll get to 200GB.
    • I actually haven't done it, yet.  Used to be in the Traffic menu, there was a section to see online multiplayers or friends--but I haven't been in that menu in months.  I think then you can just get together and decide on a place to spawn, and you'll see one another and can possibly chat on headset.  Not sure if more is needed for the chat piece.  I know I can see my one random friend's online status and his scores on the landing challenges.  Maybe there's some option to "find" them in the sim?  I'll look more into all the multiplayer stuff tonight.  But friend me if you want, and we'll see if we can figure it out. I don't have it on my XBox...pretty limited space on that guy these days.  But, yeah, I bet it'd drain controller batteries like crazy if it's constantly rumbling.  Not sure how much flying, or sim-flying you've done, but if you're just starting out, maybe some of the AI-assist options around trim and power/mix control could help.  The training items seem to be pretty informative, too.   Tying it into golf, I've checked out a bunch of famous courses...everything in the Monterrey peninsula area, a lot of the UK, Bandon, etc.  I usually start at some random city, then pick a course I want to 'play', takeoff, find the course and give it a flyover, then land at the nearest airport in a little 'pretend mission' like I'm going on a golf buddy trip in my private plane. .  Then next time, takeoff from there and pick the next course.  I just made the hop from northern Ireland over to the west coast of Scotland a few nights ago.  In that part of the world, if you enable live weather, it can turn into a real challenge in smaller planes.
    • Day 32 (28 Jul 21) - Played nine today with the 5yr old grandson.  We got back before the rain started.  Used this practice round to work on ball striking and carry distance.  Using the Approach S20, I had planned to used the back distance of the greens as the "carry" factor on the approaches.  Of course if the pin was in the front, then I used the middle distance (center of green) to figure what I needed to carry.  Planned well, executed poorly as the round had only 1 GIR and 4 nGIR.  
    • Played 9 this morning / midday with the 5yr old grandson.  He was definitely the better player today.  Not a par or better to my name.  Putting was erratic (again the greens here are difficult at best (bare spots, erratic growth grass, etc.)) and the ball had no zip off the clubs.  Score was a disappointing 51 as I was looking to be in the low 40's at worst today.  Oh well, some days are meant to be just enjoying a 5-yr old play with abandon and do well.   And hopefully there will be tomorrow where we can go again.    
    • In my view, yes.  Whenever you do closest to the pin in multiple shots, someone who holes out prior to (or even at the number indicated) wins.
