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.

    • I agree that Acree put others in danger. And as I stated before, the laws regarding weapons and/or assault need to be enforced in this case. And the rest of my statements only apply if he was fairly certain this guy was the thief (of which none of us knows the truth). I don't care in the least that he threatened the guy's life or kicked him in the head. If I stole from someone, I would expect the same treatment. I promise you, most thieves know it's coming if they get caught by the wrong person. As for leaving this up to the police to solve and retrieve the property... sorry, but that's naive. Go ahead and look the statistics up of recovered stolen property - excluding motor vehicles. As for the police not using what some may view as excessive force... when someone is acting as this guy did, I don't believe they are very "gentle" with them. I don't think they can afford to be. They may be smart enough not to kick anyone, but they'll make sure those cuffs are on nice and tight. I'd love to hear from a law enforcement officer - even if it meant my opinion was proven wrong. But because the rest of us have zero experience in apprehending a suspected criminal, none of us are qualified to do more than offer our stupid-ass opinions. It's a pissing contest of opposing views that will likely lead to the thread being closed. There is no one way to act in this situation. You can think of yourselves as highly intelligent on one side of the argument, or Dirty Harry on the other. But this crap goes way beyond reason or ego. When faced with the situation, you either act, or you don't. And if you're going to act, you can't go halfway. Probably the best thing Acree could have done - once he pulled his weapon - was threaten the guy's life and leave no doubt (at least that's my stupid-ass opinion). I wouldn't have done what he did and that's why I leave my weapons at home. But criminals love the fact that most of us are passive.
    • Hi guys, been working on the swing. Had a few lessons, playing once or twice a week and got down to a score of 20 over par (92 on a 72). But still really struggling with inconsistency. Losing a lot of balls each round, have a bad miss when I come through the ball with a wide open club face and the ball screams straight right out of bounds. Did this on the first tee this week into someone's house...not good when the club pro and loads of people were watching. A dog was barking for the next few minutes :( Any tips? saving up for some more lessons soon but they are expensive to get as much as I want.
    • Chainsaws get heavy if you carry your clubs, gotta take a cart.
    • So the younger guy on the original is a science teacher in nearby, (for me), Middleborough MA. I think it was high school.
    • I know you mentioned it, but you're showing yourself as a 30+ handicap.  For the next few years, the sole grind of your wedges isn't going to be nearly as important as learning to use them properly.  In your shoes, I'd be looking at lightly used clubs in approximately the right loft/bounce combinations, without getting too bogged down in the next level of details.
