Heading out to Portland this Fall for a golf trip.  I may have to check out that course.  We are heading to Crooked River.  Have you played there?  If so,  thoughts?

This is the 16th hole on the Palmer course at Geneva National. It was in amazing shape for April in WI.  It was one of the nicest courses I've played in WI to this point. I would imagine that the 16th looks even better in fall with the leaves turning. I attached the scorecard below. It was a chalanging course but fun. I liked every hole nothing gimmicky. 92e042a9acb5f562e0a74edb_m.jpg

A few from Burnham and Berrow last night in beautiful late evening sunshine. Had the place pretty much to myself so took about 2 hours to play the 9 hole course, dropping five balls around each green after I was done to practise my short game. It takes me a shade over an hour to drive there, but membership is still one of the best decisions I've made - golf-wise. It plays as good as it looks, too :-). (@RandallT)

Worth double-clicking to get them full-size, btw.

Whiskey Creek in Frederick, MD.  Old distillery ruins can be seen in the far right and left.  The left ruins split the 18th fairway...not a fun par 5 but a beautiful course.

Hey, you were right near me!  Next time, let me know you're around, I'd love to get together for a round.

Thanks! I'm usually up there visiting my folks, but if I'm in the area when they're out of town, I'll be sure to shoot you a PM to play a round.

#12 European Club, County Wicklow, Ireland. The large lateral hazard is the Irish Sea.

County Louth Golf Club, Ireland, just north of Dublin. I love links golf.on these courses where the key is to keep the ball close to the ground. I bounced this one up tight from 202 yards with a six iron, which I normally hit around 155-160.

Frederick MD...Is that not close to where the old Naval Communications Station was? I seem to remember that name from my service days as being between Washington D.C. and Pax River. (guess I could look at a map-duh)

    • Short of the year for me yesterday.

      Hit my driver towards a crossbunker on the rigth on a Par 4 after making birdie on the previous hole (Par 5). When I walk to the ball i saw that the ball climbed the rigth wall of the bunker and stayed there, 50cm from the wall. I had 2 options, make my stance on the bunker and hit the ball like a baseball player or stand over the wall and grip the club from the shaft halfway to the head, like it was a club for a 5 year old player. I knew that i was facing to give back the birdie on the previous hole.

      I choose the 2nd option, take an 8 iron from 120 yards and hit it as hard as I could towards the green. The flag was short left, with a bunker guarding the middle/rigth portion of the green. 
      I make a perfect contact and the ball took a really low ball fligth towards the flag. Landed 30 yards on the fairway shorter to the flag and start rolling until I saw it disapear on the cup. Yeah!! Eagle!! :D. Raised my arms before it drops, and my playing partners start clapping, they wheren´t close to me to celebrate. A couple of high 5 closer to the green and big satisfaction when i pull it out of the hole. 3 under in 2 holes. Yes, it was luck that the ball went in but i made an amazing recovery shot.   
    • I think pondering the answer is its own punch line....
    • @ANDY_UK Interesting argument, but neither you nor the person that wrote the article has answered my question. If the ball is lost where do you drop? Obviously you don't have any idea where your ball went so how do you equitably drop in a place that does not give you an advantage? It could have hit a tree and gone backwards, it could have taken a horrible bounce and be well right or left of the fairway or green. You don't know so how could you possibly drop anywhere but from where you originally hit your shot? For example you're playing a match, one person hits their ball up against a tree, another person hits their ball, it hits something and goes off never to be seen again. The player who found their ball has to chip out backwards back to the fairway, the player with the lost ball just gets to drop where ever and add a stroke? Technically the player with the lost ball could be in better position after dropping and they both lie 2. Thats just wrong IMHO
    • Getting an old set and having them adjusted is not going to yield you any better results financially than getting a new set. If you're looking for the most bang for the buck, look at www.thegolfworks.com and get a set of their maltby irons built to your spec and flex.  They're only about $299 for the whole set.   The woods are just as amazing but you could find a used OEM driver for cheaper.   
    • Not surprised, they're great looking and performing clubs.
