Hello from Columbus, OH

10 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

- I'm new in here and in golf

- I started swinging 2 weeks ago

- I bought my used clubs set for $75 (bag, gloves, balls, tees included) on used sports equipment store

- I learn how to swing from books/internet

- I video recorded my swing and it looks really horrible

Anyone here from Columbus, OH? Any idea for the best golf course for beginner?

I work in C'bus.  As for beginner golf courses, I would think Wilson Road might be a good place to start.  Good iron practice.

I also started a Central Ohio Golfers group on the Groups page, so feel free to join us!  I'd like to make this a more active group, and, hopefully, we can play some outings together at some point.

Hi, I'm a Columbus beginner too. I've not played a ton of courses around here, as oddly enough I keep driving down toward Cincinnati to play with some friends there. That said, Phoenix Golf Links in Grove City isn't bad for a beginner. The course isn't in spectacular shape, but it's got some good things for a new player: (1) it's not [i]too[/i] expensive; (2)  people don't seem to mind slow play; (3) no thick trees in which to lose balls; (4) lots of balls to be found on the course in the weeds; (5) wide fairways with a few holes offering water and elevation changes.

Disclosure: I don't work for and have no association with Phoenix.

I hear some of the Columbus muni courses are really nice, too, and if you have any association with OSU, Gray is a spectacular course for beginners.

I've tried Wilson Road. Looks decent to me as beginner. They let me play alone and people were nice and considerate (knowing me struggle getting my 2-times-par objective).

Monn, I am always interested in finding people to play with. I am on the east side of Cbus in Reynoldsburg. Have a couple decent courses over hear that are fairly cheap. Blacklick, Walnut Hills, Airport are just a few to name. Keep checking the threads and I am sure we can all get together some time.

Hi Dennon,

Hopefully you would get this reply before Sunday.

I found good deal on ezlinks ( https://specials.ezlinks.com/Reservations/Specials.asp?selStartDate=09%2F23%2F2012&selState;=OH&submitbutton;=Find+EZLinks+Special+Rates ). It's Royal American Links on Sunday at 10.56 a.m for just $15 if you use DOGLEG as coupon (yes I'm a coupon guy). There's still one left and I wonder if you're interested in joining me.

Anyone has played on Royal American Links? Hopefully it's suitable for beginner.

I played Golf Club of Dublin last week. It's a nice course, pretty well maintained, but not worth the greens fees they want to charge. If you get the chance to play there for reduced prices, it's worth going.

    • What an absolutely crazy final round! If a golf movie were made with that many plot twists, it would go down in flames, After Spieth hit it off the world right on 12 I thought he was done for! To escape with a one putt bogey was huge. Then, when he was getting ready to hit his tee shot on the Par 3, 13th a crazy thought went through my mind. "Watch this guy knock it in the hole and send this place stark raving mad!"  Damned if he didn't almost do it. After that shot, and birdie, he had "the look" back. All the stuff that happened before was gone. A great example of letting the bad stuff go! I will say this, Spieth needs to find a Driver he can trust! Or maybe a Driver swing he can trust. Especially when the wind is hitting him in the back. Yeah, I know! He just won the Open Championship, but he seems to have a problem with that. And I felt sorry for Kuch. He played some damn good golf this week, but just came up a hair short. After they finished on 18 and were shaking hands, you could see in his eyes just how much this hurt!  
    • In my experience; it is the golfer, not the clubs, that are the "most forgiving" at the start of a relationship.  We all want to be proved correct in our decision to bag a new club or clubs.  To that end; we are willing to give the new club(s) a bit more leeway than we grant the old.  I'm guessing that you and your new clubs will get along fine...once you get to know one another.
    • I went out today and worked on some stuff.  Slow mo.  Partial speed and up to maybe 3/4.  It brought the same feeling as this era of my swing.  I could tag it pretty good doing this but the club felt upside down.  Couldn't ever get over that.  Hit a couple today that came off nice with what I worked on.  When you capture the feel of this it seems like the ball is trapped into submission and can't go far off line. This old one was when I was working on the same stuff for a while.  Heads nice width is good face shut.  Good pop on irons with this...
    • If you're looking at the Golf Digest 2016 Hot List categories, the XR irons rank as GI, along with this year's XR Steelhead and Apex CF.16;  the Calla SGI was the XR-OS and this year's Big Bertha OS. Another potential problem with SGI irons: too high launch a shaft. Circa 2009, I was looking to replace my  iron set of 14 years. The Callaway original Big Bertha and the Ping G10 both launched too high with their stock R-flex shafts. The Callaway X20s (played for two seasons), however, had a more moderate launch with the heavier Uniflex shaft. So, don't forget shafts when you're considering SGI, or any other class, of irons.
    • Spieth.  I would be more surprised to see Rory win period at Augusta.
