anyone interested in starting a thread sharing your personal pictures of the courses you've played.  A hole you love, or hate, a bunker that you always find yourself in, a view from the tee box that always makes you smile... or curse?

Personal picture, no pictures from other websites.

Golf is a new obsession, been cycling for years. Seems like cyclists are very into photographing their rides and places they ride, golfers maybe not as much. I'm just starting to stop and take pictures on the course.

Here's a picture of a beautiful par thee overlooking the Hudson River at Sleepy Hollow Country Club which is the course closest to where I grew up. Welcome to the golf obsession. I started taking photos of courses that I play about 6 years ago. Here's a link to about 5,000 photos of 300 courses I've played since then http://community.webshots.com/user/tewie19

This is from the 8th hole tee box, The Jewel Golf course, Mackinaw Island, Mi with the Grand Hotel in the foreground. If memory serves me the the green in the picture is from the 5th hole par 3. Hit the front nine two season ago, loved it!

Gatlinburg Golf Course, EXTREMELY nice for a municipal course and rivals a lot of the pricier courses I have played:

I enjoy documenting the courses I have played.  Here are a few good shots.

TPC 17th replica at Castle on the Bay, Arkdale, WI.  Great course

Replica of TPC 17th at Castle Bay, Arkdale, WI

17th at Timberstone GC in Iron Mtn, MI,  One of only a handful of 5 star courses in the country that may be better than many of the top 25 courses in the country.

17th at Timberstone, Iron Mtn, MI.  One of the top 20 courses in the country.  Look closely, - the green mirrors the shape of the lake in the background.

Wynn Golf Club, Las Vegas.

JHWMUSIC,

The lost dunes course looks awsome, I looking for a course for my brother and I to hit this summer. He's west of Chicago, looking for a course half way between us

The pictures don't even do it justice! Class A establishment! Its gated but doesn't have a single home inside...just a few high class bungalows. You also have to play with a forecaddie, but they are well worth it. They know every inch of this place...at least our guy did. If you look closely in those pictures you can see our forecaddie standing in the middle of the fairway...they sprint out there to spot your ball for you when you tee off. Graeme McDowell was also there a week before we were. They only catch is that it is private...but they will let people on depending on how busy they are. Hope you can get the chance because it was one of my favorites of all the time! If you don't there are a ton of good courses in that area. Whitaker Woods is right there...really tough, nice track at a good price.

Twisted Dunes in Egg Harbor, NJ.  Pretty awesome course.  I forget what hole this was but it was one of my favorite par 3s on the course.

    • Like many golfers I have a bag of 14. When I play a normal round of 18 all of them come with me. I will say that I'm constantly tweaking the line up of clubs. I actually have 18 clubs from which to select said 14. Sometimes a 3 wood, sometimes a mini-driver, sometimes this driver, sometimes that one, sometimes the 4-iron, sometimes the driving iron, sometimes the hybrid, sometimes one of 2 different gap wedges. PW through 9 are always the same, and have been for 10 years. My sand wedge and LW are always the same and so is my putter.  Having said all of that. I like getting out for a quick 9 after work and in doing so I'll carry 7-8 clubs. I take the evens one day the odds the next. Plus sometimes the LW sometimes the SW sometimes no driver, sometimes no 3 wood. What ever. I helps my brain think it's way around the golf course. It also builds my confidence in clubs that perhaps I wouldn't use all the time. I learn to hit different shots. Lastly it's just plain lighter to carry. 
    • Summary: Number of clubs and mode of transportation have little effect on score for average golfer.  My golals for playing golf: to keep my bones from getting any weaker; to continue to play bogie into my old age; to enjoy the best life long sport. This year I decided to play from tees appropriate to my driver distance and to experiment with walking and carrying a short set of clubs, so I could avoid hurting my back moving the push cart in and out of the car.  Set consisted of driver (vrarious clubs 9.5* G20 to 16* Mini) , putter and 4hyb,6i,8i, pw,sw. With this setup I walked 9,18 or 27 holes on varrous courses around Ottawa Ontario. I scored about same  walking with short set  as with riding with a full set. About me: 80 years old, golfed off and on for 65 years, never better than 10 handicap: never had a fitting as I am constantly working on developing a better swing;  I consider myself an bogie golfer as I play about that level with 14 or 7 clubs, walking or riding on 9 or 18 hole courses. 
    • Never been, but I've met a number of Indian co-workers of my brother when they visited here.  Mainly, I remember those guys in parkas in September. So I gather that it's pretty darn hot. Maybe coming from Florida it won't be as much of an issue for you. I also remember them being astonished by our grocery stores and fascinated by strip clubs. For what that's worth. 
    • The fact that he went through all that golf says a lot about how his back is working. Even if he had traines for it and been prepared, it was a lot of golf in a short period of time, and he won the TC, which must have been a bit exhausting in itself. I still think having the cup the week after the Tour Championship is a poor decision, even if Tiger didn't play poorly.
    • Congrats!   All of the hard work is paying dividends!   Keep at it.    I'm excited to see your continued progress.
