The contrast of the deep green and brown rock at those desert courses is awesome.

These pictures make me wonder if I play really ugly courses.... though that might be correlated with how cheap I am.

I love the pictures, and am now inspired to take a few of my own.

I wolf it cause I can get some big money and we are going to the Borgata so I'd prefer to gamble with someone elses money. My one buddy is up on the dune to the right he hits a bunch of pebbles come flying out, sand is everywhere but his ball lands takes one hop checks about 4 inches from the pin. I proceed to miss my 6 footer and push the wolf so instead of being up about 50 bucks I walked away with 10 on the day.

These pictures are beautiful. I'm in Florida, so seeing some definition in the fairways…and mountains/hills…is exciting haha. This has inspired me to take some photos of the next round I play. Thanks everyone!

I feel ya.

My regular course isn't ugly but geez, it wouldn't hold up well in pictures against some of these!

I'll take some on my next round and see how they come out. I'm not lugging a camera around, as I am now a full time walker, so it's cell phone pics or nuttin!

Here are some of my home course pics..........LOL   My HC has two kinds of lies if you miss a fairway...........

Lie #1:  (if you can find it)

If it's been more than 1 day since the grass was cut:

Lie #2: (if you can find it)

Freshly cut grass............

040.jpg

Both lies will kick your @rse............take your pick!!  LOL  Whatever you do, do not miss the fairway!!

this is a view of lie #2 from a few feet behind the ball:

Typical of what to expect at my home track from the tee......#7, a 598yd uphill par5 from the tips.  The tees I played were 555yds.

031.jpg

Plan on a long forced carry on every hole over deep prairie grass.  Ya know the old saying.... "thin to win"? ....not here!!! Once you are beyond the forced carry, either side of the hole will be protected either by trees or knee/thigh high grass to catch wayward drives.

If you are lucky enough to avoid the thick rough and hit the fairway, you are in position to hit your 2nd shot over a large/deep creek with your 2nd shot to be in position to reach in 3.  If you click the photo, you can see my ball on the left side of the fairway.

So far so good....

032.jpg

Bust a 3wood 280 up the hill...you may flirt with the front edge in 2.  As crazy as it sounds, I did this on the day I brought my camera..........

033.jpg

My ball is resting in the rough just short of the greenside bunker.   Our rough is insane, and the fact that my ball is even visible is a miracle.  I think I drew the best possible lie on the entire golf course!! The best Lie possible was achieved and I took advantage by pitching that GD ball in for a 3!!!  The shot is more steeply uphill than it looks, so I never saw it drop.  All I heard was "KLANK"......I couldn't believe it so I ran up to take a look....sure enough............

035.jpg

It was in DA HOLE!   hehe...I can dig it!

I have lots of golf pics...LOL

They don't mow the rough at your course because the fairways are 90yds wide!!! :P

    • I think providing people dont turn up in speedo's and flip flops it shouldnt matter what you wear. If im at the range i'll generally be in Jeans/Joggers, t-shirt and trainers. Personally i dont understand the guys that turn up in their full gear to hit a basket of balls then go home, but each to their own i suppose. The way i see it is the range isnt just for dedicated golfers. Its a place for people to try it out, to have a bit of fun or, in my case, to spend some time with my 4 year old that doesnt involve staying in building train sets (fun but nice to get out). If someone turns up and they are not dressed to your liking or sound like they are having "too much fun" just ignore them and focus on what you are doing. I find it actually helps me when there is noise next to me as if i can hit good shots with a group of lads laughing next to me then not much can distract me on the course.
    • Zero.   I can't remember ever coming closer than 3 feet in about 40 years of off and on golf.  I guess I need to improve my iron play. 
    • And dawn of the big day has arrived at the Talamore Golf Resort. Or it will soon, anyway. Sand Trappers everywhere are rising to catch sight of the first scoreboard of the day, so we won't disappoint you and make you wait any longer than necessary. Teams for the morning foursomes are set.   I was able to zip south in time to catch the end of dinner at the Carolina Hotel at Pinehurst, as the coaches squared off to announce the teams. Sorry no group photo yet, and just a candid, but you can already sense that the East has more gray hair, but the West needs to do more stretching! I'll refrain from posting pics yet about some of the bling the teams received last night, but let's just say we should all hope for a tie in this Newport Cup match, to be decided by a sudden death fashion show: the all-red Pizza Delivery men vs the Jet Blue flight attendants.   
    • Drop and stop is realistic for a 15 handicap, as is sucking it back for a +1 handicap... I haven't updated my profile handicap in a while... But we'll go with I'm in the middle... Can I suck it back? Ummm... Maybe a foot or so... Am I a drop and stop sort of guy... More or less. But in this next phase of my game, I'm playing shots that are much more consistent than what I was hitting before. If I miss a green from 150 yards and in now, it's not by very much... I played 27 holes yesterday, I did only hit 9/27 greens in regulation, however, almost all of my missed greens were nGIR, and most of those we within 10 feet of the edge. It's definitely better than it was with this way of playing shots from 150 yards and in, because with my driving distance most of my iron shots into par-4s on my home course are from 150 yards and in. "GIR is King, nGIR is Queen."- Lowest Score Wins.  As a side note, that is only tangentially related. (It's a slightly different skill)  My pitches and chips have started to get better, since I purposely started playing the shorter swing shots.
    • Maybe you should be honest with him.   Give him all the reasons you cited in your post.  Tell him you won't play with him unless he gets some decent clubs and takes a few lessons.   Also, for the sake of all of us, tell him he gets a maximum of 8 swings per hole, or maybe a maximum of double-par, and then he has to pick up and go to the next hole, because he's holding up everyone else on the course.
