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.

    • Be completely honest with yourself regarding this question. Are you asking this because: 1. You’re not hitting the ball as good as you’d like and wonder if changing clubs would help? 2. You just don’t like the feel/look of the RBladez as much as you thought. For the first, that’s golf. You can’t buy a better game. It really takes time and patience. For the second, don’t underestimate how a club looks/feels. If another club gives you warm fuzzies when you’re looking down at the ball then so be it. Take those clubs. Welcome to TST. And certainly take the advice @boogielicious mentioned about the My Swing thread. There are many awesome instructors on this site. Cheers!
    • I takes time to make changes like this. You need to work not only only the shoulder turn with the club, but also your general flexibility and core strength. Yoga type stretching can help, but there are other simple exercise you can do as a warm up to help.  I do them in front of a mirror at the gym to also verify I have a centered turn. I do this one below every time I pick up a club. And be patient. Changes can take weeks to happen. Stick with it, it will change. From this thread,    After I do this, then use a club and check out my shoulder turn in the mirror. It really, really helps. Mirrors are terrific tools.
    • Theres a lot to be said for that.  As a devout Buddhist, I can tell you that just taking life as it is can be a real game changer in a person's life.
    • Welcome to The Sand Trap. New players should really try and focus on making good contact with irons. DG S300 shaft are a bit heavier than the 100g shafts the fitting recommended, but you should be able to use them. 77 mph is average for a 6 iron (if you used a 6 iron to get that speed) and as a new player, you swing speed will probably increase given your size. Your PW distance would indicate stiff is also a good choice. If you want to get better, I recommend posting a video of your swing in the Member Swings section. We can help point you in the right direction for improvement.  
    • Has this guy ever looked at Hogan's swing? 😂 Agree with @iacas, if anything Hogan is doing the opposite. IMO Hogan had more of what's called a lagging club head takeaway, meaning the club head "lagged" behind the hands on the takeaway. I just don't think you can get in these positions with twisting or rolling the forearms while adding extension (cup) to the lead wrist. I agree he maintained or maybe added a little extension in the lead wrist early takeaway, almost "pushed" the grip end back with the heel pad of the left hand. Right hand above left, well away from his right thigh. If you twisted you can't create that amount of width. Look at how the right elbow is well away from his rib cage. Hands and shaft almost inline at 1.5, again don't think that can get there by rolling the forearms early. Right hand on top of left here. I have some thoughts on how this allowed him to get to the top with such an externally rotated right elbow, might do a video on that soon.
