Thanks for all the replies.  To the one who posted about salary -- I'm making 68.5k/yr, though I do have the rent thing covered (free for at least 6 months).  I should be completely debt free after that, so hopefully I will be able to afford something.  My primary sport is beach volleyball and hopefully sand is free out there, so I'll only play golf maybe twice a month.

Worst case, I'll move back to Ohio from a 6 month vacation!

You will be fine.  There are plenty of places to live out here, and you can certainly get by on 70k/year ... I did it for quite awhile.

Good luck!

I live in Burbank, we have lots courses within 10 miles but you would not find $20 a round any where in California. DeBell at Burbank has good rates for twilight hours which starts around 2 in the summer and 1 in the winter. It is a beautiful course, short and challenging, men club is coot too. Look me up and I will play a round with you.

LOL...I was thinking the same thing!    If $100 green fees are an issue, then relocating to Pasadena probably isn't a wise economic move.  IMO......

100 dollar green fees aren't the norm. Its more like an average 60 if you wanna play weekend prime time with cart. carts are usually 10-13 per person so it can be down to 50 to walk a course and you definitely can get your time worths with how long the round lasts. you just have to learn to enjoy your time waiting on the tee box basking in the wonderful weather but you get used to waiting being in traffic all the time.

Yes, I realize how the traffic is out west.  However, anyone from Pittsburgh can tell you that traffic down there isn't much better!  I work there everyday, driving 2.5 hours round trip and I'm just plain sick of it.  It's one of the things (along with getting another job) that prompted me out to CA.  If anything else, it'll be a long vacation :)

    • Interestingly, I’d say there are more people at my golf club that have chosen not to get jabbed than at the pool hall.  
    • I'll guarantee you that the unvaccinated are whipping off their masks, too.
    • I hope it doesn't come to having to carry the vaccine card but at this point the people that aren't vaccinated have had the opportunity (except for a few exceptions) and are taking the risks upon themselves.    I've done my part to protect myself, family and friends.   
    • I've been Playing Golf for: 4 years My current handicap index or average score is: 85 My typical ball flight is: Draw/hook The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Hook/push/slice Hi everyone, I changed to an in to out path in order to learn to draw and I developed a very nasty hook over the last 18 months (also flipping wrists at impact at times which I am learning to reduce). Now that I've been trying to change it I've been hitting some fades but I would like to know what you all think of the swings in this video. Unfortunately, no ball so I don't know where these would have gone. I'm relatively happy with the backswing and I think there is something about the downswing and release which is causing me issues. I want to learn to change this path to in-to-in and get back to hitting straight! After working on steepening the path a little a couple of weeks back, I started slicing my drives after hitting them pretty straight or with a draw for 18 months, and I've included one horrible one in this post which started straight and went way right. I can see that there's a lot of out-to-in on the path of that one and would also love a couple of ideas of how to bring that back to straight if possible. I've found that hitting with confidence has straightened it out towards the end of my last round, but I was still hitting a bit out-to-in. Overall the combination of these videos show where I am at. Trying to get back to hitting straight after dabbling in the world of horrible hooks with the odd lovely draw.  https://youtu.be/3k_zppbWl3w https://youtu.be/gvHuY36k9T4 https://youtu.be/E_z77EKNrZo Thanks a lot in advance for any advice you can give!     Videos:   
    • But I still want to know how we can tell the vaccinated from the unvaccinated? Will the latter be wearing a scarlet letter "U"  on their chest?
